Cat sitter needed in Basel Stadt

Hello all,

I am looking for a long term cat sitter that can watch after our little ones when we periodically go away. We want someone we can trust who genuinely loves kitties and will play and pet them rather than just go through the motions of feeding litter box etc..

We have had so many bad experiences in our time here, and would love someone to give us deep peace of mind while we are away...we would pay well.

Thank-you!

Re: Cat sitter needed in Basel Stadt

Are you looking for someone to go to your place to visit them and look after them, or are you looking for someone to home them whilst you are away? Are they house cats or outdoor cats?


We live just over the border in France but work in Basel so both could potentially be an option for us depending on the rules of bringing cats from Basel to France. I have been a pet sitter for friends in the past and have always treated them as my own and not just a chore to complete. I always find it tough to let them go home as each kitty has such a unique personality and I get quite attached. Do either of them have any medical or dietary requirements? Are they vaccinated, "snipped" and chipped?


Also, are they ok around children? We have an 8 year old and a 3 year old. Both of them have respect for animals and know to give them space and be gentle with them.


Even if our location is a problem, I think people will need to know the answers to the above to see if they can properly help you.

Re: Cat sitter needed in Basel Stadt

Hi Swisstobe,

My wife and I have just moved to Basel from Australia and had to leave our fluffball behind (with my sister-in-law, where she's settled in nicely) when we came over. We've both had animals all our lives.

We'd be happy to help if they're indoor cats as we're in a loft apartment with no balcony unfortunately. We're located in Gellert. No children, my wife works and I'm doing language courses in the morning but home in the afternoons. Also I could always use some extra cash

Re: Cat sitter needed in Basel Stadt

Thanks to both offers...however, I should have been more specific and stated that you would have to visit our home each day as cats typically do not enjoy leaving their safe environments. I live in center Basel Stadt...they are two easy fully vaccinated healthy young indoor kitties who just want their food, fresh water, a clean cat box and some love and playtime.
