Max & Kitty is an online platform that connects pet owners with experienced and passionate pet-sitters in their local area. They are founded by a vet and aim to offer top quality service, with passionate pet sitters and a personalised customer support.
The blog is dedicated to readers who will benefit from interesting pet stories, to health, advice, and well-being for your pet, to company news. Services range from boarding in the pet sitter’s home, to pet sitting at the owner’s home, to cat visits and dog walking.
The owners benefit from professional insurance, an emergency service, and 24/7 pet support. You can entrust your pets with a peace of mind to loving homes and caring pet-sitters at hand.
In order to become a pet sitter with Max & Kitty, you have to fill in a registration form on the website.
Once completed, our recruitment team will vet your application. It will then take between 1 and 2 weeks to find out if you’ve been successful. They will send you an email.
On the Max & Kitty’s website, you can define your own pet sitting rates for each pet sitting service you provide.
You can change your rates at anytime by going to “edit my profile” then “my services”. If you change your rates before you finish your current job, this job will remain at the old rate.
If you have to travel (for visits, walks or for a pet sitting at a client’s home) you should not include your mileage cost. They will be calculated automatically by the site on the basis of £0.15 per mile + a fixed rate of £5 if you pick-up the pet from the owner’s home or if you do the sitting at the owner’s home.
The pet owner will pay you directly.
We advise you to ask for 50% up front, and the remaining amount once the pet sitting is complete. That way you are covered in case of unexpected expenses (food, medicines…).
