I'm Melanie | Cat Sitting in Fort Collins, CO
I have three little fur babies of my own, and I love getting to meet and get to know all of my client's pets. Every cat is different, and I really enjoy discovering each one of their personalities, their nuances, and what they like and dislike. Lily is my little princess. She loves to cuddle, she's super adventurous and friendly, and she's extremely food motivated. James is my insecure little prince. He secretly adores cuddles and intentional affection, but he's also a scaredy cat until he gets to know you. Aviendha is the ruler of the house. As a tortie, she is equal amounts affectionate and feisty, and both of those at 100%. She came to us at only 3 days old, so we got to raise her as a bottle baby. My favorite part of caring for my fur babies is learning how each of ...
Melanie is fantastic. My cat is very shy, and she did an excellent job with him.
Melanie did amazing with my older kitty who needs a lot of attention and twice daily medicine! She took great care of our home and left everything squeaky clean. I will 100% be asking for her help again.
I have used Melanie a couple of times now for my two cats and she has been amazing with them each time. One of my cats is shy and timid with new people but Melanie sends me pictures of her rolling on the floor next to her wanting rubs! I will definitely continue using Melanie in the future.
Melanie did great! one of my kitties has asthma and needs an inhaler/meds twice a day. Melanie had no issues doing and sent me updates/pictures each day. my shy kitty even got pets from her by the end of her time. I'll definitely have her take care of my kitties again.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.
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.
