I'm Darren | Cat Sitting in Denver, CO

I’m Darren and I’ve lived with cats for more than 40 years giving me a deep understanding of their behaviors. I know the worry and concern you have when leaving your four-legged friends with sitters. We have two adorable cats and think about them every time we leave the house! That’s why I’ll care for your cats as if they’re my own! When you hire me, you can expect the following: • Feeding your cats on your schedule • Playing with and paying attention to them • Keeping the litter box clean and sanitary • Sending you reassuring pictures of their wellbeing If your cat has medications, I have experience administering pills and liquid medicine to my cats. I live in Denver’s Central Park neighborhood, and since I work from home, I have flexibility to visit your cats during the day. My love for cats started when I was young...

Learn More About Darren

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

I've been cat sitting for friends and neighbors for more than 10 years and they've ranged from all different types of cats (friendly, aggressive, shy, young, and old). I also volunteered at a rescue where I cared for feral and anxious cats who were recently taken off the streets. Part of my role was to socialize them by positively reinforcing human touches with treats.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I've always had a soft spot for animals, so when I visit someone who has a dog or cat, I find I spend more time with the pets than the people! Cat sitting gives me the chance to give back the uncomplicated love and comfort animals give me.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two adorable orange cats named Copper and Miles. They have very different personalities but I love them the same!

Darren is a fantastic sitter. He knew what questions to ask in order to be prepared for our week away. Our kitties rarely throw up, but had two separate instances while we were away; Darren cleaned it all up for us. He was even kind enough to bring in mail and move our recycling bin off the street for us after collection day. We received daily photos of both cats, which was wonderful. Even when our nervous girl hid under the same blanket daily, it was reassuring to see that familiar lump was doing well. We were happy to hear he had no issues giving our boy his daily medicine as well. It's so nice to know that if we travel again, we have someone we would trust to check in on our cats.

Darren was an amazing help while we were away. He was very professional, took great notes, and made sure my shy lady got what she needed along with some chin scratches! (super rare!!) He was great as well making sure my elder gentleman got his meds on time too. Darren is awesome at communication and it was nice coming home to find the cats were happy and that the house wasn’t a wreck from litter, vomit, or smells.

Darren was awesome! This was my first time using Meowtel and I'll definitely be using it again. Darren is kind, friendly, and clearly at ease with cats, and mine took to him, obviously putting my mind at ease knowing he was being well taken care of. I'd recommend Darren without hesitation and look forward to reserving his services again soon.

Darren was the purr-fect sitter for our two fur babies. He was attentive, responsive and went above expectations for making our cats feel at ease and comfortable while we were traveling. Darren sent over photos, asked questions and assured us that Lucy and Tank were in good hands! We appreciated his attention to detail and will use his moving forward for travel needs - 100% would recommend!

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 $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.
