How Meowtel works for a cat parent

    1. Search in your area for a 5-step vetted and fully insured Cat sitter who can offer drop-in visits to your home or overnight stays for your kitties.

    2. Request to reserve directly from the Cat sitter's profile. We can also assist you in finding a great Cat sitter if you prefer.

    3. The Cat sitter will review your request and confirm or decline. If confirmed, you will be provided next steps to set up a complimentary Meet & Greet with your Cat sitter. If you're not 100% satisfied with your Cat sitter choice after the Meet & Greet, give us a call for alternate Cat sitters or a refund.

    4. Complete the Cat Profile & Vet Release Forms so your Cat sitter can provide the best care possible.

    5. Enjoy your trip! Your Cat sitter will send you regular updates & photos to let you know how the fluffy kiddos are doing.

How much does Meowtel cost?

Each Meowtel Cat sitter sets their own rates and availability so choose a great Cat sitter that works for your budget! Rates start at $20 for a 20 minute drop-in visit to your home.

At checkout, you will see a small Trust & Insurance charge added on to your reservation to guarantee the highest quality sitters and insurance coverage are offered on our platform.
