I'm Michelle | Cat Sitting in Fort Myers, FL

I have been a cat lady since my 29 years on earth. I grew up with cat allergies which helped me develop a tolerance as “no cats in the home is not a home” to my family. I did volunteer work for the Tallahassee humane society while working on my biology degree and have experience with giving oral medication. I recently was able to give insulin 💉to a client to where I now feel comfortable offering the service. I will always assume the cat is skiddish and needs a quiet environment. I will not immediately get in their face and force love on them. If your cat doesn’t like the smell of other cats I will shower and change before arriving. I l...

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

I’ve been cat sitting with Meowtel for a little over a year. I was the first sitter in the Ft Myers area. I was nervous in the beginning because I didn’t have any other sitters to refer from, just myself. I drove in the morning to prep any last minute things for my FIRST kitty client the day Hurricane Ian hit. Her 4 day reservation became almost 3 weeks! Navigating poor service, power, and flooded roads was a challenge for a newbie like me but I did it. After that experience, I started to find my groove and get more confident in what services and benefits I could offer as a sitter.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love seeing all the different cats (breeds, body shape, hair length etc.). I feel like dog breeds and looks are more universally known but cats are also so diverse! I hope to meet a sphynx someday.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 1 cat right now. Her name is Ruby. I also have 2 bunnies. I lost my soul cat, Moose, two years ago and I am still mourning him some days.

Michelle is awesome. I’m so happy I found her! She did an amazing job with my two boys. I think they miss her. I had no issue trusting her with my home and my children. I really appreciated all the photos and updates as I was hard for me to be away for so long.

Michelle was the absolute best!! She went above and beyond in every way! She took our garbage out, brought in our mail, cleaned the litter box and did lots of play time with our kitties. We were happy every day to get our update from her with picture and some videos along with an update of how they were doing. It definitely eased our minds and we are happy to know that we have a reliable cat sitter for anytime we travel.

This is my second time using Michelle, and she did a wonderful job! My cat, Miley, got sick and Michelle was very responsible and took her to the veterinarian for me. She is absolutely the best thank you Michelle!

This is the second time I’ve had Michelle take care of my kitties, and I honestly can’t recommend her enough! I had to leave town suddenly due to a family illness, and Michelle not only responded and reacted to my request immediately, but went totally above and beyond by picking up cat supplies for me at Petco since I wasn’t able to before leaving town. She was completely amazing with the cats and her updates/pictures were phenomenal as usual! I truly appreciated her kindness, support and understanding during this difficult time, and knew without question that my kitties were in the best care possible while I was away. I can’t thank her enough!

Michelle was absolutely incredible. This was my first time using a service like this so I was a bit apprehensive but Michelle made it so easy. She even clipped Max’s nails for me which was greatly appreciated. I would 100% use her again and recommend others do as well.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $30.00. 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.
