Whether your cats are social and love to play and get rubs or would much rather keep a distance from their sitter, we have plans that will work for you. Regardless of the temperament of your cat, we strongly suggest at least one visit a day but, at a minimum, there must be at least one visit every other day.

I have 30, 45, and 60 minute visits. These visits can be once or twice a day and will include feeding, playing and cleaning the litter boxes. If medications are required more often, additional visits can be arranged.

These visits would also include gerbils, hamsters, mice, guinea pigs, fish, etc.

Stella's Bones Pet Sitting & Dog Walking serves West Springfield, Westfield, Agawam, Feeding Hills and Holyoke, Massachusetts. For jobs outside of this service area, there is a $5.00 surcharge per visit. Please email me or give me a call at (413) 221-5470 to inquire about out of area availability.

TNR: What Is It?

Trap-Neuter-Return, or TNR refers to a method of attempting to control feral cat populations by humanely trapping community cats in box traps, having them spayed or neutered (and vaccinated against rabies), and then returned to their original environment once they have recovered from surgery. TNR cats are also commonly eartipped, which indicates to others that they have been neutered and vaccinated. If young or friendly (“adoptable”) cats are recovered during the TNR process, they may be transferred to a foster home or shelter to be put up for adoption. While vaccination isn’t a requirement, it is considered best practice, and you will often see the term “Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return” or TNVR instead. Regardless, the idea is that the size of the colonies will decrease over time as its inhabitants are unable to reproduce.
