I'm Carly | Cat Sitting in Washington, DC

Hi folks! I’m Carly and I’m so excited to possibly meet you and your kitties! I have grown up owning cats my entire life, and love them dearly. I sadly don’t have any cats living with me currently, but that’s why I am thrilled to be watching your cats - a win win for both of us! At my 9-5, I do marketing and communications for an environmental nonprofit in DC. My hybrid work set up there gives me the flexibility to work with your schedule to find what works best for you and your kitties needs. I live near the metro and have a car, so we can work out the best way for me to get to you and your cats. I have been sitting with Meowtel for over a year (and for friends and family for years prior), so I have dealt with lots of kitty personaliti...

Learn More About Carly

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

I have been catsitting with Meowtel for over year, and informally for friends for years prior, and have served clients with an assortment of cat personalities, needs, and routines. From anxious to timid to energetic, I have seen it all!

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

If you book with me, I’ll first arrange a meet and greet with you, where I stop by to meet you and your kitties. Especially for shy cats, having an introduction and letting them know my scent while you are still around to make them feel safe is so important. I’ll have you show me where their things like food, water, and litter are kept, and also their favorite toys and regular hiding spots. I’ll get any keys or access codes from you for my visits later. It’s also a chance for you to ask me any questions, so you feel confident leaving your cats in my care!

Attention to Detail

Carly was super responsive to our request and made sure to send photo updates as well! Would definitely let her take care of our cats again.

This was a very good experience from start to finish and we’re looking forward to having Carly as our go-to catsitter. She took great care of our cats and our house and sent the best daily reports and photos. Five stars.

I totally messed up my booking and submitted the wrong days. Carly noticed it immediately and was super flexible, adjusting the plan so my cat always had a sitter. I didn’t have to worry for a second!

reservations with Carly were easy and fast. she was responsive and didn’t show any hesitations in our instructions. I felt very much at ease with leaving our cat in her care for the weekend. she provided photos and updates and went above and beyond for us when she left. We will look for her again when we need another weekend sitter.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
