I'm Colleen | Cat Sitting in Denver, CO

I offer full refunds for most canceled visits, life happens and I’m happy to be able to offer my flexibility and hopefully sit for your kitty another time. I am currently cat sitting full time. If you need availability that I don’t have listed, feel free to message me about the dates you are looking for, I will open up dates if I can! Hello fellow cat pawrents! I’m Colleen and I love cats! My #1 goal is to make your cat(s) comfortable while you are away. I’ve had so much luck with shy kitties warming up to me. I always talk with a soft voice to the cats I sit, as if they understand. During my visits I often will introduce myself to them if they don’t come right out and I’ll talk to them about why I’m in their home and what I’m doing. I love cats and all their quirks. I will always respect your cats needs and purrsonality! I grew up with 5-6 cats in my home as my family had a habit of rescuing them. Now, I have two girls of my own. My black kitty is 12 years old and some former neighbors rescued her after she had kittens in their garage. She is very outgoing and is my constant companion at home. My white kitty is 10. She is more skittish and shy, especially around strangers, but she is VERY attached to me. She had chro...

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

I first started cat sitting for family friends when I was in middle school, they also had ferrets, fish, and turtles I cared for over the years. I grew up with as many as 6 cats in our household at one times and now have two of my own. In my adulthood I've consistently been the go to cat sitter for friends with cats, and I started with Meowtel in July 2022.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love all opportunities to spend time with cats, but winning over shy cats feels especially heartwarming. Since starting with Meowtel, I've had so many cat parents tell me their cat only comes out for me (and them, of course!) and has never come out for another sitter before. I always feel so honored to win over the shy ones.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

There was one client I sat for until they moved. They had two cats, one would always hide under the bed or in the closet. I would always bring him food to his hiding spot and talk to him a little bit. Eventually, on day 7 or 8 of a 10 day reservation, he decided he was ready to come out of hiding and was instantly ready to be friends. He let me pet him and he followed me around with his sister. He was no longer fearful and hiding when I came over.

Colleen was great with my difficult boy! He can get kinda mad with newcomers but she handled it like a pro! She even watered my plants during the heat wave-this was our first time with Colleen and we will definitely be using her again!

Colleen was so great with our two older/medication needing cats! She was patient with their needs, and even our very shy guy warmed up for scritches and pets. Thanks Colleen!

We rebooked Colleen to care for our two cats while we were in NYC, and we couldn't be happier with her service. She was fantastic in every way. Colleen sent us detailed updates along with numerous photos and videos, which really helped us feel connected to our pets while we were away. She managed to keep our spazzy little guy entertained, and he seemed to have a blast with her. Our sweet shy girl, who usually takes a while to warm up to new people while we are away, felt comfortable and at ease with Colleen. Colleen's attentiveness and genuine care for our cats were evident in every update. We highly recommend her to anyone in need of a reliable and caring cat sitter.

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 $32.00. 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.
