I'm Karen | Cat Sitting in Birmingham, AL

Hello to all of the cat parents in Hoover and the surrounding areas! I grew up in Hoover and recently moved back after being in Colorado for 25 years. I was a sitter for Meowtel in Colorado for a year before I moved here. A little about me…I’m in my 40’s and I’ve been a homeowner for over 20 years. Previously, I was a medical laboratory scientist and have shifted into the field of holistic health. I have loved cats since I was a toddler and I’ve had them in my life for over 40 years. Most recently, my furry soul mate Chloe was with me for 16 years. After she passed, I took on a roommate who had 4 cats, so I was like a live-in cat sitter for them. Now tha...

Attention to Detail

Karen was great. Very good communication and always sent me great pictures when she was visiting with my kitty.

Karen took great care of my kitty! She sent updates every time she stopped by, and was even nice enough to clean up the mess when my cat was naughty and knocked over my plants. 5 stars!

Karen was wonderful! Great communication and daily updates which we really appreciated. Makes being away from our kitty much easier! Karen also saved the day and accepted my last minute reservation due to my prior sitter’s illness. Thanks, Karen! Highly recommend and will use her again.

Karen was the best! Our kitty loved her and she sent thorough daily updates that put my mind at ease while we were away. Can’t wait to book her again!

This was our first time hiring a cat sitter, and I'm so glad we did! Karen was very responsive and attentive to all the needs of our 2 kitty boys, and really went above and beyond to take care of them and even bond with them. We were out of cell service the whole weekend, and it felt great coming back and seeing all the pictures and updates. Karen has really good energy and we felt very comfortable having her in our home. We could tell our cats were well taken care of because when we made it back home, they acted like we were never gone! We will definitely be scheduling with Karen again.

The Meowtel Promise & Satisfaction Guarantee

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations. For reservations where each visit is at or above $20 and paid for through Meowtel, your cat(s) will automatically be covered under our insurance policy in the event that things don't go as planned.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. Prices will also depend on how long your cat needs company for, whether that be a drop-in visit or overnight stay in your home. Meowtel sitters offer 20, 45, and 60-minute drop-in visits that allow for fully tailored care for your kitties. Your caregiver may also need to charge a little more if they have to travel far, so we'll match you with the best options which are close by.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel on eligible reservations via our Meowtel Promise. To ensure total peace of mind while you're away, every Meowtel reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you (and your kitties!) can have full confidence in your sitter before you leave.

Cats are territorial animals and don't do well in new environments. The presence of other cats, dogs, and even birds in kennels or animal hotels cause an immense amount of stress for your kitties. This is why Meowtel was created, so tailored in-home care is brought to you.

We recommend that you book daily visits with your sitter to keep your cats in their routine and to help minimize feline anxiety while you're away.

Each Meowtel cat sitting visit will include the whole 9 yards: feeding, refreshing the water bowls, litter box scooping, tidying up, medications, updates with photos, lots of playtime, as well as any special requests you may have. We know every kitty is different and that's why we offer tailored, in-home services since cats don't do well outside their own homes. Plus, every reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you can meet your sitter before you leave to ensure it will be a purrfect fit.
