Cats at Home Pet Sitters

Our Story

Because of being avid cat lovers, Jay & Jill Pattiz were faced with the dilemma of what to do with their cats when they traveled. Besides, they were uneasy about boarding their cats. Most importantly Jay & Jill realized that there was a dire need for in-home pet-sitting services in their community. On May 1, 1997, after nearly 21 years in the corporate world, they turned their immense love of animals into a business.

Jay & Jill’s business, Pampered Pet Sitting, began in West Central Missouri 27 years ago on May 1, 1997. Since the company’s start, cat and small animal pet sitting have been a major part of their business. Their main priority is to provide high-quality services for you and tender loving care for your pets.

Cats At Home Pet Sitting Established

Seeing the need for a pet-sitting service whose specialty is cats, they formed Cats at Home Pet Sitting in 2016. Jay & Jill Pattiz, owners of Pampered Pet Sitting for 27 years, collaborated with Kathleen of Arcadia Pet Care, to bring specialized cat sitting to the Kansas City area and West Central Missouri.
