Music City Cats Job Application

Pet Sitters for Cats

Here at Music City Cats, we’re looking for dedicated, hard-working self-starters who have a positive CAN-DO ATTITUDE when it comes to working with us and the CATS we love. We’ll be honest with you, this is the hardest job we know you’ll ever love. Especially if you love CATS as much as we do! We are a world-class ELITE PET SITTING SERVICE. We cater ONLY TO CATS, and cat-owners who’re willing to pay a premium for our top-of-the-line services.

We assign each of our clients a PRIMARY kitty sitter so we can offer them continuity of care. We need sitters we can count on TO BE THERE when our clients and their kitties need them. 

Of course, in the real world, we realize emergencies may come up that prevent a sitter from making their assigned kitty visits. When those unexpected situations occur, the Music City Cats management team and fellow sitters can provide back-up.

Our cat-sitting sessions are usually 30 minutes in duration, although we also offer 1-hour and 15-minute visits for those clients who request them. Visits are scheduled one (1) or two (2) times per day and will last as long as our clients are away from home. For clients who book TWICE-DAILY visits, AM sits are started between the hours of 7-10 a.m. and PM sits are started between 4-8 p.m. Single visits (one visit per day) are Any Time Visits, and you can visit kitties any time between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. while staying within the Music City Cats +/- two-hour time window once a client’s trip has started.
