Tamara was fantastic and shared plenty of photos and videos daily. She provided lots of details on how the cats were doing and if she noticed anything out of the ordinary. She sent messages when she arrived and left. I felt very comfortable with my kitties in her care.

Tamara is the absolute best - I am a repeat customer and can’t recommend her enough. She is reliable, thoughtful, thorough and a great communicator. If we have to be away, having her with our kitties is huge peace of mind.

I would highly recommend Tamara. My cat Thomas had been diagnosed with diabetes and was recently hospitalized 5 days before I left for my trip. For any new cat, parents can be very stressful. Tamara quickly adapted to his changing medical condition. Which helped me gain peace of mind that he was going to be well taken care of.

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.
