How Meowtel works for a cat parent

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

    2. Request to reserve directly from the sitter's profile. For help with putting in a reservation request, click here.

    3. The 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 sitter. If you're not 100% satisfied with your sitter choice after the Meet & Greet, give us a call for alternate sitters or a refund.

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

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

How much does Meowtel cost?

Each Meowtel sitter sets their own rates and availability so choose a great sitter that works for your budget! Rates start at $20 for a 30 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.
