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...

Attention to Detail

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.

This service is amazing and in our situation, exactly what we needed. On the first day of the reservation, discovered a problem, I called Meowtel to resolve. I think it was 30min time to talk to a staff member and have a resolut. We are very impressed with Meowtel.

Wow! I’m so happy I found Gunhild! I just moved to the area and had to go on a work trip. I was beside myself on accommodations for my sweet little cat as I don’t have a network here yet. Gunhild saved the day! My cat loved her and she has an excellent personality and communication. I felt very comfortable handing over my keys and having her look after my baby! 😊

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.
