We are a professional, fully registered cat sitting service
We understand the anxiety every cat owner feels when they have to be away from their cats. We are here to take that worry away so you can go, safe in the knowledge your furry friend will be cared for and looked after in their familiar environment.
Each of our cat sitters has grown up with cats and currently have their own here in Dubai. They are 100% dedicated to caring for your cat(s) and are on hand whenever you require their help.
While you're away, our mission is to ensure the well-being of your cats and home, leaving you with the peace of mind that they are in safe hands.
Being cat owners ourselves, we know how hard it is to rely on neighbours and friends to care for your cats. Which is why we set up The Dubai Cat Sitting Company. We're here to take the stress away.
A HAPPY CAT, IS A CAT AT HOME.

KEY COLLECTION / MEET 'N' GREET
Meet your cat sitter, brief them on your cat's needs and handover the key.
We'll return your key at your convenience. To avoid this cost after the initial booking, we are happy to keep a set of keys for future bookings or leave them somewhere discreet on the last day.
All of our staff are experienced in giving medicine to cats, whether it be insulin injections for those with diabetes, or slow release tablets that can't be crushed into food, rest assured we can handle it all.

If we are cat sitting for you and there are strays that you usually feed, we'll happily make sure they have food and water too.
Yes, we know they're your babies too - we're more than happy to give them water as needed.

If we're already looking after your cats, we'll feed the fish too.

How long do you spend with my cat on each visit?
This depends on the cat(s). We respect that while some cats are extremely friendly, others can be very wary of strangers, especially in their home. For those who are happy to be cuddled and played with, we are happy to have fun with them. In this case, we would usually stay around 30-40mins.
How much do you charge?
We charge Dhs. 78.75 per visit for up to 2 cats, and an extra Dhs. 10.50 per cat after this. During public holidays and peak-periods the rate is slightly higher due to demand. Please see rates
When do I give the keys to the cat sitter?
Once your booking has been confirmed, we will arrange a date and time for meet 'n'greet. This is when you will brief us on your specific cat requirements, show us where things are, and give us the keys.
How much notice do I need to give?
As much notice as possible would be appreciated, especially during peak-periods. A week's notice gives us time to arrange the meet 'n' greet, receive payment in full and issue a receipt. We will only accommodate last minute requests from clients we hold keys for already.
What time do you visit?
We visit between 8am and 7pm. We try and visit your cat at the same time each day, but during peak periods this may not be possible.
How do I know that you've visited and my cat is ok?
You will receive a WhatsApp message on the first visit, and updates/pics every other day thereafter. With your permission, we can also post pictures of your cat on our FB page.
Do you offer every other day visits?
No, we don't. Even if your cat has an automatic feeder, in order for your cat to receive the best care and for us to keep an eye on them properly, the minimum requirement is one visit per day. If you have a kitten(s) that is younger than 6 months old we require a minimum booking of two visits per day.
Is The Dubai Cat Sitting Company a registered company?
Yes, we are a registered company, proudly associated with www.urbantailsdubai.com
What if we have a cat flap and my cat goes out regularly?
Although we don't want to upset your cat's routine, we'd prefer it if you could lock the cat flap while you're away, for everyone's peace of mind.
What happens if there's an emergency with my cat?
If there is any problem whatsoever, you will be alerted straight away and your cat will be taken to the vet if necessary (chargeable). You will need to fill in a vet release form at registration, which gives us authorisation to take your cat to the vet if required.
How do I pay?
Payment can be made with credit/debit card via Paypal (your invoice will be in USD). If you prefer bank transfer in AED, our details are available upon request. Payments MUST be made prior to the first day of the booking.
What are your Terms and Conditions?
You will need to sign a copy of our T&Cs at meet n greet (attached file here for your reference).
What happens if I haven't bought enough cat supplies prior to leaving?
We realise you may not have had time to race to the shops to stock up, so to make your life easier you can order all your cat supplies via our online shop www.mycatandco.com and we'll deliver your supplies the next day.
