I am a professional pet sitter in Ohio. Rates will vary depending on where you are located.

Please consider hiring a professional AND insured pet sitter. A pet sitter that is insured helps protect you, your home/kitties and also the sitter.

I would not suggest hiring someone off of Craigslist and such. While you may find the offer bargain basement rates it's a 'you get what you pay for' type of gamble.

If you go the professional pet sitter route, you will most likely pay between $12-$20 per visit. Most sitters will visit for a minimum of 30 minutes for that rate.
