I'm Dana | Cat Sitting in Yuma, AZ

I am an empty nester hooman mom and grandma who just moved to Yuma, and I love cats of all kinds. I’ve been sitting for Meowtel clients for over a year and I’ve met the most wonderful cat families along the way. I’m excited to be here in Yuma and continue to make cat-family friends. Now that I’m getting closer to retiring I’m hoping to be free to do some traveling, but I’d like to establish a network of families who may need a cat grandma every now and then so I can still have fur babies to love on when I’m home. I am still working with a few years to go, but I work from home on east coast time, so as long as I have access to WiFi, I can even commit to local long term care if your time away will be extensive, or you need a cat grandma every day. I am not formally trained or certified in caring for cats with special needs, but I am eager to ...

Learn More About Dana

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have been sitting through Meowtel for almost two years, developing a loyal clientele in CA but then moving to AZ last summer. Definitely not as many cat families out here, but I do it for the love of the furbabies, so I’ll continue!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love meeting like-minded cat parents who want the best for their fur babies. I love winning over a shy kitty and sending Mom & Dad videos of our fun while they are gone!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My absolute favorite reservation became a repeat family after I made friends with a little stray kitty that hung out around my client’s house but was too skittish to join the furkids inside. She changed her mind after my first visits, and now she’s a full family member!

Dana's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Dana is the best cat grandma ever! She genuinely formed a bond not just with our kitty but with us humans as well =) She is understanding and is great with communication. I definitely recommend her and can assure you she will treat you and your kitty like family!

She was so gentle and sweet with my cats!! Bella really likes her. My cat Whiskers was so shy but I'm pretty sure she is like a cat whisperer since I don't know how she managed to get a glimpse of him. We are extremely happy and satisfied with her job. Highly recommended.

Dana made our trip away from home worry-free for us and fun for our kitties! I can't say how much I appreciated her communication, her gentle nature with our girls and overall thoroughness and care. One of our cats fell completely in love with Dana and we had to convince her that we're fun, too, when we returned home. :) Thank you so much for giving two doting cat parents total peace of mind. You are a joy!

Dana was a great sitter for my cat, Smokey! Smokey was a bit nervous at first but Dana was patient and caring, and by the end of their time together Smokey was right at home and super relaxed. This was my first time being away from my cat for so long (two weeks) so the updates Dana were very helpful

Dana did an amazing job taking care of our furbabies! She made sure our cats were fed, given many treats, and handled cat-related chores. She also played with the cats a lot, and we could tell in videos and photos that our cat absolutely loved her! Even though one of our cats was anxious, Dana made sure to check up on her each day and brought us a lot of peace of mind. She asked us a lot of good questions about how our cats normally function and did an amazing job!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $22.00. 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.
