Non-stop scratching, “presents” left on the pillow, general impropriety: we all know what can happen when cats are left home alone.

Fortunately, travelers no longer need to worry about their favorite felines inexplicably getting stuck inside clothes hangers (at least not while their owners are on vacation), because pet-sitting service DogVacay has just launched a new spin-off specifically for cats.

CatVacay works the same way as the company’s original pup-focused site, connecting owners with screened, professional sitters in their area. All the bells and whistles are the same, too, from vet insurance to daily photos of your kitty to 24/7 emergency support, just in case. 

Cat owners can even request to have a sitter stay in-house, offering 24-hour supervision for those extra needy (or naughty) kitties.

Average rates for check-ins range from $15 to $20 and overnight stays cost a bit more, averaging at $25. But it’s well worth it knowing your cat is happy and healthy, and hasn’t destroyed your entire apartment.
