Letter of Authorization for Emergency Veterinary Treatment: Write up a simple "to whom it may concern" letter authorizing your pet sitter by name to seek emergency care for your cat(s.) Also either leave signed blank checks (write "for veterinary care only" in the check memo), or make arrangements in advance with your veterinarians, either by leaving a credit card authorization, or by asking them to bill you upon your return. Understand that not all veterinarians will agree to the latter; a lot depends on your previous relationship with them.
Your Itinerary and Cell Phone Number: Encourage your cat sitter to call you when she has questions about your cat's care in your absence, and particularly if she sees something amiss, such as not eating, litter box avoidance, abnormal signs of stress and any signs of poor health, such as runny eyes, excessive shedding and bloody stool or urine.
It's also nice for the pet sitter to send daily or scheduled texts or emails and photo of your cats (when that is possible).

Feeding, Fresh Water and Litterbox Instructions:
Diligent litter box maintenance is a must for every cat sitter. The cat sitter will view the locations of every litter box in your home, and make sure a scooper, full bag or box of open litter, scooper, sanitary litter disposal bags, brush or broom with dustpan or vacuum are near each box. Emphasize the importance of observing the waste contents of each box. Loose stools, or stools with mucous or blood are red flags, and indicate a call to your veterinarian without delay. Demonstrate how to scoop the litter, and how to empty and clean the box, in case your absence will be extended.
