I'm Gunhild | Cat Sitting in Stamford, CT

My name is Gunhild Jensen, and I am originally from Denmark. I grew up in the countryside and spent my summers on my grandparents' farm, where my favorite activity was to sleep in the hayloft in the barn along with all the barn cats. I cannot remember a time in my life when I did not have at least one feline friend. My three current cats are Simba, a 12-year-old Maine Coon mix, Stella, a sweet 2-year-old calico, and Sheba, a playful little lady with a squirrel-like tail. Simba immigrated with me from Denmark and has his own passport, while Stella and Sheba are both rescue cats from shelters here in America. I work as a foreign language teacher but also completed my education as a certified Cat Behaviorist in 2018. A cat behaviorist helps cat owners fix any behavior problems their cats might have. Such problems include mi...

Gunhild's Reviews

Attention to Detail

So impressed by Gunhild’s commitment to cats & their well-being. My two cats, both seniors, were immediately drawn to her & subsequently very relaxed upon my arrival home. So grateful for Gunhild’s kindness, professionalism & expertise.

we just moved to a new city and I was worried about finding a new sitter, but having Gunhild take care of my cat while we were out of town was a great experience. I felt like my cat was in great hands! she sent frequent updates with photos and my shy cat loved her!

Gunhild is amazing!! She sent us so many photos and videos while we were away, and got our shy kitty out of his shell. Can’t say enough positive things about her! we will be booking her everytime we go away.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $33.00. 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.
