I'm Sean | Cat Sitting in Denver, CO

Hi, I’m Sean, a statistician who loves cats, and nothing makes me happier than a happy cat! It is an art form that I have been purrfecting over the last two years, meticulously trained by the half-dozen kitties I have regularly babysat for. On top of that, I volunteer at the Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue in Denver, and it was there a sweet, very shy 1 yo kitty named Jelly found me! I have been fostering her now for the last 3 months and counting. High quality care is extremely important to me. It takes knowledge, awareness, attention to detail, full responsibility, reliability, listening, patience, and lots of intentional energy to achieve it, all of which I have in spades. My first priority is to the happiness and physical and emotional well-being of your kitty AND their environment. That includes a clean home (no foul smells), clean bowls, clean eating area, clean litter, fresh water, a comfortable temp, plenty of food and treats, companionship, documenting and listening (looking out for subtle signs of communication or changes in behavior), and of course lots and lots of play! That’s what you get with me, every time, as well as great photos and videos! Logistics: I am typically free all days of the week, as well as holidays, and I have an all-wheel drive vehicle for the snowy days. More specific details about me below: I have a passion for animal care and love doing my part to ensure the safety and well-being of animals. To pay the bills, however, I work from home as a data scientist, having received my Ph.D. in Statistics at UC Berkeley a little over 7 years ago. I have worked primarily in cancer research and people analytics. I'm from the Bay Area originally, living in San Francisco for over 10 years before moving to Denver 3 years ago to avoid the persistent shutdown in SF caused by the pandemic. My hobbies include lots and lots of writing, music, snowboarding, hiking, and running. I do NOT drink alcohol, smoke, or do drugs (legalized or not). Qualifications: 1. I have extensively cared for 5 cats over the last 2 years, PRIOR to joining Meowtel, across a wide range of needs, temperaments and ages: Taco (grey tabby): I cat-sat her for 2 years consist...

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

I have been consistently cat sitting for 3 years prior to joining Meowtel where I was sitting for friends and friends of friends who traveled often for work. This allowed me to form deep bonds with kitties across a wide range of needs and temperaments, as well as perfect the art of cat sitting!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy SO many things about cat sitting! The two that I value the most are cultivating a unique bond to each cat so that they quickly know that I am there to support them and keep them safe; and introducing them to exciting new toys and ways to play! I find employing the “fun uncle” strategy is super effective at brightening up their day and gives them something to look forward to for the next day :).

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I was really fond of an 9-night overnight reservation with the cutest orange tabby named Tony (named after Tony the Tiger). He had so much kitty energy that we could play for hours! Every time I would arrive he would jump right into my lap and begin purring incessantly for a solid 10 minutes — an experience like that could cure any ailment!

This was my first experience using a pet-sitting service and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I was gone a full week out of country and felt a lot of guilt leaving my girl for so long. Sean set my mind at ease with his first visit, and by day 2 or 3 I was wondering if my cat would even miss me. So in a word, Sean was fantastic for my cat. She's a senior, timid, and extremely vocal, but he had nothing but praise for her. His communication and photos were the best and something I looked forward to each day. I could see in the photos how happy she was. ALL the stars from me and mine! 😺

Second time I’ve had Sean watch my cat. He brought him a new toy to play with that he absolutely loves. Sean made sure my cat did not feel alone while we were gone. Great sitter!

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations.

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.
