We use Time to Pet software to send you visit updates. 

When you join Cat Sitters of Knutsford, our team is there to onboard you to the app and provide you with support.

It’s a great app that allows you to keep your cat details up to date, let us know about changes in their routine, book future visits and where we’ll send our visit updates from.

For customers, the app is free to download on both iOS/iPhone and Android phones. There is also the option to access Time to Pet through the website, if you would prefer not to download the app.

We require a welcome meeting before we onboard you and your cat with us. Once we complete the welcome meeting, we don’t need to do this again unless there’s any major changes or a new family member.

Every cat and home is unique, so it’s important for us to learn as much as we can to ensure we follow your cat’s usual routine, reducing their stress while you’re away. 

It’s also a great opportunity for us to meet your cat with you present which can support their confidence with a new person in their home.

You’ll also be able to ask us any questions you have about our services or the cat sitter assigned to you.

There is no fee for a welcome meeting.
