I'm Annabelle | Cat Sitting in Washington, DC
Cats have always been a part of my life - one of the best parts! I have lived with a total of six cats in my life, and currently live with Toupou who's nearly 3 years old and has been with me since she was a kitten. She's a fiesty toirtoseshell who has made me work harder than any other cat to earn her trust and respect, which makes our bond that much sweeter! When I'm not hanging with Toupou in my free time, I enjoy hiking, visiting museums, watching movies, cooking, and caring for my many plants.

I recently graduated with a Master's in Urban Agriculture, and will be starting as a biological science technician at the USDA soon.

This is the 3rd time I have asked Annabelle to take care of my 2 cats and a foster who needs medication. My cats were delighted to see her! She also refilled the bird feeder without my asking. An all around animal lover, very responsible, responsive, and makes sure the cats’ litter boxes and feeding areas are clean and well maintained. Thank you!
Annabelle provided detailed updates, pictures and even a few short videos! It was very nice to see my cats while I was away and to know that they were well taken care of in my absence.
Annabelle provided excellent to care to gma and detailed updates. I really appreciated it!
Excellent! Clearly great with cats, and I felt my cat was happy and well looked after when I was away.
Simone, a persnickety client, is always in good hands with Annabelle.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.
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.
