How to stay connected with your cat while you are away
24th July 2019
When you go on holiday, you like to know that your cat is happy while you are away, but this can be difficult to keep on top of without contacting your cat sitter every five minutes. Sure Petcare has developed a range of app-controlled pet products that can help you stay connected with your pet while you are away. These products enable you to see what your pet gets up to wherever you are for peace of mind.
Your cat’s activity
The SureFlap Microchip Cat Door Connect and the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door Connect make a record every time your cat goes in or out of the house and sends you a notification of this activity, so while you’re on holiday, you can see that your cat is behaving as normal.
Your cat’s feeding
The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect can ensure that your cat continues to eat a healthy diet while you are away and allow you to keep track of their feeding behaviour. You set your cat’s portion size within the app and LEDs light up and then flash when the correct portion size has been reached.
This makes it easy for your cat sitter to feed your cat their usual portion size without them having to mess about with separate weighing scales. This gives your cat a continuity of care that will help them to feel comfortable.
Staying connected with your cat sitter
If you use a cat sitter or other pet sitting service such as TrustedHousesitters and you notice changes in your cat’s behaviour, you can get in contact with them to ask them to investigate. You can also give your cat sitter access to the Sure Petcare app so that they can keep track of your cat’s activity and feeding behaviour, enabling them to give your cat that extra level of care while you’re away.
For example, if your cat is wary of your cat sitter, then you could tell them to avoid the house at the times that your cat normally likes to feed, which your cat sitter will be able to view in the app if given access.
Helping pet lovers travel
TrustedHousesitters is the pet care solution keeping pets happy at home and helping people to travel. How does it work? Made up of both owners and sitters, members pay just once a year to connect and exchange home and pet care for the chance to stay with pets in unique places. As neither member charges money, it’s a special exchange that helps owners travel with true peace of mind while pet-loving sitters get to experience life somewhere new.
With members in over 130 countries and more five-star Trustpilot reviews than any other house and pet sitting platform, TrustedHousesitters is officially the world’s largest and most trusted community of its kind.
