Cat Sitting Insurance FAQ

Why Do Cat Sitters Need Insurance?

Most business owners need liability insurance to protect themselves in case they are found liable for harm that comes to a client or to another third party. Protection against liability is particularly essential for pet care professionals because they often work in a client’s home, and they work with animals that are incredibly unpredictable.

If damage were caused to the client’s property or to the client’s pet while they were in your care, you could be held liable, and the costs could be crippling to your business. That is where your pet care insurance policy would come in.
