Welcome to Mission: Cats

Mission Cats is comprised of a unique group of individuals who have worked exclusively with cats in the Bay Area for over a decade. We offered the ideal solution to your travel concerns by providing high quality and qualified In-Home Care for both healthy and recovering cats when you are away.

Founded in 2009 in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood, Mission Cats was one of a few cat-only hotels and cat-only house sitting services in the city. After 10 years, and over 5,000 cats served. In 2019, we closed our boarding facility in the Mission. However, we continue to offer superior In-Home Care. We provide the highest quality In-Home services in the Bay Area. Being a small company, we give your cat(s) the personalized service and attention they deserve. Our company has experienced, dedicated and compassionate staff. Over time, we have built lasting relationships with our cat customers and their human families…

Our satisfied local cat owners no longer worry about what to do with kitty when planning a vacation or when suddenly called out of town. We offer you the freedom to travel, even on short notice, with the knowledge your cat is happy and safe at home under dependable and reliable care.

What sets us apart from other pet sitters is our extensive In-Home Care experience. We have dealt with many different types of feline behaviors on a daily basis, so we understand all their unique personalities and know the warning signs of most health problems that may arise while you’re away, which often go unnoticed by friends, neighbors and busy boarding facilities.

Boarding a cat is not ideal. Many kennel workers double as technicians and are rarely allowed time to socialize with boarding pets apart from brief feeding and litter changing times. So, the kitties are often left alone without human interaction most of the day and night, feeling scared and forlorn.

Cats always do best at home where they continue their daily routine in a familiar environment. Unlike dogs and people, cats are not thrilled about new experiences.

The solution is Mission Cats. Cats are much happier and adapt well to a compassionate caregiver who interacts with them for an extended period of time. If there are two cats in the house who keep each other company, we’ve noticed they are happier with frequent visits. With daily visits, cats are much calmer and meow less (complain) when we visit.
