I'm Sean | Cat Sitting in Washington, DC

Hello! My name is Sean, I'm 24 and have had around 8 years of experience caring for cats of all ages levels of energy. I am a biologist and life-long cat lover. I've had two cats in my life: Dingo, a very shy rescue when I was growing up, and Charlie, a very boisterous & friendly boy. In the past, I spent 3 years volunteering on a weekly basis with a home-style cat rescue that housed about 70-90 cats. I developed a very calm and inviting presence to ensure the comfort of these cats, as many were not used to human contact and so I learned to be very sensitive and knowledgeable of body language. My friends and family all are amazed by how I’m able to approach any dog or cat and put them at ease. ...

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

I've sat for cats for a few months for friends and family, and have many years of experience in shelter settings. I'm used to unfriendly cats at the shelter as well as cats that are demanding of attention!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

Once I learn what spaces they feel most comfortable in and where they like to retreat to, I like to put myself on the floor (on their level) in an open space where they can see me and approach if they like. I'll do what I can to signal openness and calmness but more than anything I just want to make sure the cat knows that they are safe where they are and only have to approach if they want to.

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.
