I'm Ernesto | Cat Sitting in Washington, DC
I was never a cat person until my sister brought a cat home a while ago (Siamese). We called it Cleo! She was a little crazy but super sweet independent cat. She was the little princess of our family, but she was also the boss at home! Unfortunately she got too old and she is gone now. I don’t really want to have a cat myself anymore because I like to travel a lot, but I would love to share some time with them, they are nice and independent... so am I I like to do outdoors activities, travel, bike, excercise I work in finance ...
Ernesto was great with my sweet boy while I was gone over the weekend. He provided many updates and was very responsive. Thank you, Ernesto!!
Ernesto is so great to work with! Super responsive, flexible and trustworthy. He helped me with my cat who just recently started a new medicine regimen and put my mind at ease — he even had prior knowledge about the medicine my cat needed! And, his photos and updates were always fun and kind.
Ernesto was wonderful! I would trust him to take care of my kitty any time.
Highly recommend working with Ernesto! it was my first time using an app-sitter for my cat, Mia. Ernesto was super helpful giving recommendations as I navigated the options. He was incredibly responsive, shared regular updates, and ultimately Mia loved him! It made going away so much easier knowing she was in great hands. Thank you!!!
Ernesto took excellent care of my cat, who needed to have both pills and eye drops. Communication was excellent, and the whole process was super smooth. Would definitely book him again and recommend him to everyone

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.
