25 years of experience
Consistent 5-star service and reviews
We’re a small, locally-owned business, with a handful of fully trained professionals completely dedicated to your cat’s health and happiness, and your peace of mind when you need to be away.
We know how to monitor your cat’s well-being. We’ll comfort and draw out the shy ones and entertain the boisterous ones. This means your cats receive the loving, individualized attention and playtime for comfort, fun, and a sense of security at home while you travel.
Unlike nationwide app-based pet sitter registries where sitters are minimally background checked or vetted, our employees are dedicated professional cat sitters experienced as a team in safeguarding your home and your cats while you travel. Each member of our cat-loving team is:
•Fully vetted and background checked
•Employee team members. An important legal distinction for you vs contractors used by some sitting agencies and gig-economy pet sitting apps.
•Carefully trained and supported by experienced team members
•Experienced cat-parents completely dedicated to your cat’s health and happiness
•Professionals committed to receiving ongoing cat specific education
•Pet CPR and First-Aid certified
Why trust Companion Keepers?
We work closely with you to safeguard your cats and your home
We get to know you, your cats and your home. We always have back-up if your primary cat caregiver becomes ill, injured, or unable to make visits.
Our entire pet sitting team lives in San Antonio
Problems or issues are dealt with right here in San Antonio - not a call center somewhere in Seattle. Will a hobby sitter or call center agent be best able to handle a broken a/c, a sitter emergency rendering the sitter unable to make their scheduled visits to your home? Who will be sent as a replacement and what qualifications do they have? Are they experienced enough to determine if veterinarian care is in order for an ill pet and what vet to choose should your regular clinic be unavailable? Will an inexperienced sitter know how to navigate hazardous weather or other local emergencies to safeguard your home and pets?
Liability insurance and Employee Workers Comp insurance for your protection
All Companion Keepers employees are insured through the Business Insurers of North Carolina for your protection and for the protection of your assets. Companion Keepers also provides Workers Compensation insurance covering sitters on the job.
If a hobby or app-based sitter injures themselves or causes damage to your home, are you able to cover the cost?
Member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters
Dedicated to continuing education and professionalism caring for your pets and property in your absence.
Most pet sitters prioritize dogs. We don’t.
When Companion Keepers opened in 1994, pet sitting was in its infancy and was essentially a dog’s domain. Cats were usually left alone with an extra litter box and a food tower. We worried about our cats receiving adequate love and attention while we travelled, but there weren’t any options available other than hiring a neighbor or depending on a family member to look in on the kids from time to time. We wanted to give our neighborhood community better choices for their cats. We figured that dogs got enough attention, and as dyed-in-the-wool cat lovers we would focus on our mission: cats-only pet sitting. We happily remain San Antonio’s # 1 rated family owned cat sitting service ready to serve you and your feline family with personalized in-home cat care.
