The Cat Kingpin sitter certification is a prestigious title given to those who have shown that they are truly dedicated to the care of the care and well-being of the cats that they look after. Our primary goal here at Cat Kingpin is focused on preserving the health and safety of all cat breeds and those who are considered certified cat sitters on our website share those same ideals.
When a sitter becomes certified with us they'll be more trusted by our website visitors, their cat sitter listing will have premium placement, and they'll get more leads for their cat sitting program - this is all 100% FREE and we never charge a fee.
In order to become a Cat Kingpin certified cat sitter, the information below is what you need to know.
There is absolutely no cost involved with our cat sitter certification program. We do not require monthly or yearly fees to be a certified sitter. The goal of the CatKingpin.com isn't to make money, it's primary focus is, and always will be, to ensure the well-being of all cat breeds.
We've taken the time to create a certified sitter agreement which is an important document that we require our certified sitters to adhere to. This agreement outlines the best practices and rules of being a cat sitter. Agreeing and adhering to our Certified sitter agreement shows that the cat sitter shares in our ideals and wants the absolute best for the cats they care for.
We strongly believe that those who are serious about their cat sitting program should invest time and effort into an established online presence. What this means is that the sitter has created a website at a bare minimum. In addition to a website, our certified sitters may also have a Facebook page, be involved regularly on other social media platforms such as Twitter or Instagram, created a "My Business" profile in Google, be a member of various pet sitting associations, or have profiles on other websites that encourage reviews such as Yelp. When a cat sitter has a digital presence, they are encouraging third-parties to learn more about them and, in many cases, allowing reviews to be placed about their pet sitting program. This willingness and openness to reviews shows that the cat sitter has nothing to hide or be ashamed of with their program.
Though we don't request any fees from our certified cat sitters, we do require that they show us some support. Doing so is easy and all that it required is a link from your website to our own. This can be in the form of text, but we also provide you with a digital certified cat sitter badge (please don't use that badge on your website, it's just an example) if you'd like to link to us using that instead.
We will give further details about this once you have contacted us and we've reviewed your program.
Please DO NOT state you are "certified" on your website if you are not. We have monitoring tools in place and reserve the right to take legal action against those who purposely misinform or try to "trick" potential adopters with our cat sitting certification.
If you agree to the requirements above, the last step of the process is to contact us directly and apply. Once you contact us, we will complete a thorough review of your pet sitting program to confirm you have an established online presence and your program is in good standing.
Please note, in the event that we do not accept you as a certified cat sitter, we will explain what the issue is and allow you to reapply after 30 days.
