Cats & Fuzzy Critters Visits at Your Home

This service allows your Cats & Fuzzy Critters to stay in their own home environment while being cared for and checked on daily, as well as having your home checked on. I typically do 1x/day visits, and cats adapt to that just fine.

(Easter, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Dec 24, Dec 25, Dec 31, Jan 1)

Cats must stay indoors while I am caring for them, unless they have a secure cat yard enclosure.

Base visiting time is an approximate 1/2 hour of visiting time. These base rates include round trip travel to & from your cats visits in my centralized cat visiting area. Rates may be higher if travel is not in my centralized service area or if on the outskirts of cat visiting area,etc...at Bonnie's discretion to be quoted when we meet or once I know your locality and needs and so on, etc. $7/additional 15 min. increments over 1/2 hour of visiting time ~ ex: multiple cats, special needs, any other factors often ‘to be determined’ visit to visit as visits happen. $20/hr (minimum of $20) for transportation to and from cats appointments and time it takes at the appointments or to do errands for them (I aim to be fair to you and to myself).

We will plan an orientation meeting to establish before Visits begin ~ this entails going over your cats routines at their own home and allows your cats some time to be comfortable with their new visitor:

Orientation for Visits $5 - Plan on approx 1 hr depending on how much we chat about your cats care and info. Re-Orientation for Visits $5 - If there's been a lull since you last had me visit, you have a new cat, or there are new concerns etc. Key Pickup for Visits $5 .... Please have keys (2 sets) ready at time of Orientation for Visits at your own home to avoid this additional fee. Key Return post Visits $5 .... (I will be happy to hold them if you will need future Visits).

Visits Service Area Guidelines: Berwick, South Berwick, North Berwick (Maine), Somersworth, Rollinsford (NH) and the areas of Rochester & Dover (NH) that are more towards the rest of my Visiting area.

Winter (Snow!) "Every mile is two in winter" ~George Herbert A factor I greatly consider during the months of Dec - April is that you have arranged for reliable snow clearing if you'll be gone away for more than just a long day. I will need the name and contact info of who is hired to do your snow clearing if I am hired to do visits while you are gone away on vacation or a get away. I won't just hope we don't get a lot of snow while you're gone while I am responsible to provide care for your cats or critters at your home in your absence. I need to be able to safely park my car off from the road since town & city plows would be out working, & also making big snow piles at the end of driveways. I need to have safe access to your home in order to not compromise your cats care. I am always surprised by how many times over the years people say they never thought of preparing for reliable snow removal if they are going to be going away.(And having the kid next door or whatever neighbor shovel if we get a lot of snow, has mostly been proven to not be reliable.) Also, if we were to get a lot of snow, you will also be able to get into your driveway when you return if you have reliable snow clearing already arranged for.

Insurance Coverage:

I realize that people are entrusting their pets as well as their home to me, hiring me as their pet visitor, and therefore take my services very seriously,,,,being a homeowner and Pet Mom myself.
