I'm Erica | Cat Sitting in Denver, CO

Hello fellow cat lovers! 😻My name is Erica and I have two rescue kitties of my own (a 4-year-old orange boy 🐈 with asthma and a less than 1-year-old void boy 🐈‍⬛ who is mostly blind). I am from Denver and have lived in Thornton for 3 years now. I grew up with many beloved cats and dogs and have pet and house sat on and off since I was a teenager. I have also volunteered with the wonderful cat rescue where my partner and I adopted our two baby boys from. They each have some health and disability considerations and my goal is to ensure their quality of life. I have experience with feline ringworm, asthma, vision impairment, medication administration, regular ...

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

I have been informally cat, dog, and house sitting since I was in high school (so going on 15 years now) - mostly for family, friends and friends of friends. I have experience staying overnight in homes for up to two weeks, dropping in once or twice a day, or having cats and dogs stay with me at my home.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to know the widely different and quirky personalities of cats. Slowly build trust and getting their needs met is a great feeling. A common misconception that I hear often is that cats are wildly independent creatures who do not really need human interaction and can be left alone for days at a time. Cats are very social and although not as obviously dependent on humans as other domesticated animals they benefit from interactive playtime, consensual pets/cuddling, and general companionship. If I can help a feline be less stressed out when their human is gone I feel that is a worthy cause.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two angels myself who are incredibly important members of my family. Their names are Captain Kitty (aka: capi, smol behr, bear, smols, boos, shmolness, etc) and Sir Kelvin (aka: kelvi, peanut, lil nut, diddle, diddy, etc.). We rescued Captain when he was 8 months old and he is a VERY shy/anxious boy who has really blossomed over the past 3 years. He was diagnosed with asthma two years ago and we now have it well managed through a daily inhaler. Kelvin joined our family just five months ago from the same rescue and is mostly blind due to extreme eye infection as a kitten. He is wonderfully outgoing, vocal and adventurous - totally worth the ringworm baths we gave him for weeks after adoption. Watching him and Capi become best friends has been a true joy.

Erica was wonderful and my cat Jim loved seeing her everyday. She sent lots of photos and updates while I was gone and was very thorough with Jim’s care, making sure his food and water were full and giving him lots of love. She is very reliable and responded to my messages right away.

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.
