I'm Jennifer | Cat Sitting in Jacksonville, FL

I’ve loved cats as long as I can remember, and they love me back! I’ve been owned by a total of 6…so far. Life with my current 3 cats is quite an adventure, and they keep me on my toes! They’ve even learned to do tricks & follow basic commands. Maybe I can teach yours a few? My cat Tazzie has forever changed what I thought I knew about cats. Learning about feline behavior and enrichment is very important to me so that I can provide the best environment for my cats, improve our relationship, and be the best cat sitter I can. I’m looking at becoming a certified cat behaviorist and have started taking classes and attending conferences towards that goal. My experience has included young kittens, elderly cats, sick cats, shy cats, scared cats, “spicy” cats and just about everything else in between. I’m fairly experienced at giving medications, especially eye/ear drops, transdermal medications and pills. I’ve administered meds to several cats I’ve sat for in the last year. I’ve been cat sitting for friends and family since I was only 9, and with Meowtel since Oct. 2022. I foster kittens (mostly socialization) for the Jax Humane Society when I can, but my specialty is volunteering with the Great Lakes Bengal Rescue/Bengal Rescue Network. I’ve fostered several adult Bengals and a pair of kittens with medical issues (now thriving!) who all needed help until they could find forever homes. Since I’ve had to leave my cats with a sitter myself, I understand EXACTLY how worrisome it can be! No question or concern is too silly. No request is too much...

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

I’ve been sitting for Meowtel since Oct 2022, but I’ve been cat sitting for pretty much my whole life. I got my first job with my brother when I was about 9 sitting for our neighbor’s indoor/outdoor cats.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

CATS!!!! I just love meeting, caring for and getting to know different cats. No matter how stressful my day has been, playing with, talking to and cuddling cats always makes it better! I also really enjoy talking to other cat people.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Currently, my cats include: Hemi (12), a fluffy, silly, energetic flame-point who loves to be brushed & can jump like you wouldn’t believe for a big boy; Mateo (7), a shy, sweet tabby who loves to snuggle & is a momma’s boy; and Tazzie (8), a very smart, energetic, bossy little Bengal girl who I adopted from a rescue and loves to run on her cat wheel. All my cats are in my pictures, including my 3 previous ones: Kitty (tabby), Bear (white & black) and Angel (grey & white).

Jennifer was amazing! She was super responsive and sent lots of detailed updates with photos and video. Our boys took to her right away and she even taught them to ‘sit’ and ‘spin’ for their treats!! we were gone a whole week and got updates on our kitties every day. Jennifer put our minds at ease knowing our boys were in good hands. We recommend her to everyone and will absolutely use her services again in the future.

Jennifer is the best and I always have to leave a review, because she always does something new to entertain our crew. This was our first trip with a substantial time change since we started booking Jennifer and felt so relaxed knowing she was checking on them and that we had a set communication plan.

I will begin by stating that this is not our first time with "Auntie Jen!" And it won't be our last!! Auntie Jen is the best ever with our teenager, Cosmo! She is the cat whisperer! Jen knows cats, has cat, and can warm snooty cats up very quickly! Since I can't describe all the details of her skills, I will end by saying, I am a nervous cat-mom and Jen is the ONLY person I trust completely with our Cosmo!!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $26.00. 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.
