Cats are usually described as curious and playful, or moody and independent. Their self sufficiency and willingness to enjoy solitude means they typically need less human attention than a dog would, but that doesn't mean they are completely unaffected by the absence of their owners.
When I come to care for your cat, they actually get more than the time that you have paid for because I believe that they should be properly greeted and fussed before I even reach for a toy. Most pet owners do not open the door and immediately throw things for their cat to chase after, they give love and attention to their cat, then continue that interaction into their play time and care. Owners who hire me are guaranteed that their pet receives the full amount of exercise time requested, plus a five to ten minute buffer of introduction and farewell time. No person would want a stranger to come to their door and force them to jump off the couch by throwing random objects around, then storm out without so much as a goodbye. I don't believe your cat enjoys that either.
If your cat is shy or unable to do much exercise, I remain with them in the home for the full requested time, reading to them or talking to them. It is my firm belief that having an audible presence in the home eases the anxiety of feeling alone and helps your cat's emotional balance while you are away.
