Home Visits

This is the "meat and potatoes" if you will of the services that Cats are Family Too! offers. Basically, I will come to your home, and according to your specifications, will feed you cats, provide clean water, scoop the litter boxes, and play and give plenty of attention to your kitty, as much as necessary! I can also administer any medication as needed, including subcutaneous fluids. When done as part of a home visitI do not charge extra for this service.
