I have used James numerous times now and will continue to do so. He is wonderful! Very responsive, very caring with my kitty, and also very clean! He has also been very flexible with my sometimes last minute requests. I will be continuing to use James! :)

This was our second time using James, for a last-minute unexpected trip. Like last time, he was great with our crazy kitten, and kept us up to date on how she was doing. He's the best!

James took fantastic care of our feisty kitten Mika while we were on vacation. She's high energy and he made sure she got plenty of play during his visits, and provided fun updates on how she was doing that kept us at ease while we were away. Our kitten is already looking forward to our next vacation so she can see him again!

James is a wonderful and caring person whom I trust wholeheartedly with my precious kitty as well as my apartment. You can really tell that he absolutely loves and understands kitties of all ages and conditions. He took extra special care of mine, and his attention to detail on her needs (as well as my plants needs) was very apparent and impressive. He left my apartment cleaner than I had left it too! I will absolutely be booking with James going forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
