We we are not responsible for misinterpreted verbal requests, or handwritten and chat notes lacking details. Please allow a 4-hour time frame for the visit to start (2-hour time frame if you have multiple visits per day).
The duration of visits
Our sitters will start the timer when they arrive in your building, and will stop it when they are saying good-bye to your cat at your home.
We can borrow the key from a doorman for a duration of a walk and return it back when the walk is completed. For non-doorman buildings: we require two copies of your keys. Your sitter will have one set and we will keep the other at our office in case your sitter is ill and can’t come to work, or if you request evening/weekend visits. Without 2nd set we cant guarantee a visit if your regular sitter is unavailable.
