I live in Tampa, Florida. Need I tell you that summer here is very hot and muggy? But let’s not forget that it’s also hurricane season! So, what does this have to do with cats?
As an In-home Cat Sitting business, my Kitten Sittin’ clients come to me with questions. As a professional pet sitter, I need to know the answers. In most states across the country the two main summer concerns for their cat pets are fleas and weather disasters. In Florida and maybe where you live, fleas are around 12 months a year. Southern states don’t often get a freezing cold winter to kill them off. So, don’t waste your money on an over-the-counter flea product, more than likely it won’t be strong enough.
After Hurricane Katrina, a lot of states established Animal Emergency Evacuation Shelters for the animals and their owners. Know what your area requires before your clients can bring in their pets. In Tampa, clients need vet paperwork showing their cats have had all their vaccinations and a county registration license. As a Kitten Sittin’ Franchisee, every season brings on different needs for your clients.
