I'm Lacey | Cat Sitting in Saint Petersburg, FL

Hi there! I'm Lacey! I’m a former teacher who is currently a stay-at-home mom to a beautiful little girl and three handsome fur babies, including my two kitties, Jax and Lynk. While I consider myself an animal lover in general, I grew up with cats, so I was a cat person first. 🙂 My kitties have brought so much love and joy to my life! ❤️ I started pet sitting in college (2005) and have continued to pick up jobs here and there over the years. Now that I’m taking a break from my teaching career to be a full-time mama, I’d like to offer my cat sitting services to more kitties (and their humans, of course)! I have experience with all types of cat personalities. My own two kitties are completely opposite sides of the spectrum – one is a super chill lap cat who has never met a stranger, and the other is a highly sensitive animal with anxiety who really makes me work to earn his trust (he’s come SO far in the three years that I’ve had him though). I have experience giving oral medications in liquid and pill form (using Greenies pill pockets). My anxious kitty takes anxiety medication twice daily, so I am very familiar with that process. I work around my daughter's sleep schedule, so I am typically available any day of the we...

Learn More About Lacey

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

I started with Meowtel in January 2023, and I've loved every second! 😊

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I absolutely love my clients (both feline and human)! I've met so many wonderful people since I started with Meowtel, and loving on all these sweet fur babies is truly good for my soul. I started cat sitting as a side hustle for some extra income, but I can honestly say I've continued doing it because it's brought so much joy and fulfillment to my life. ❤️

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I always bring a notebook and information sheet to each meet & greet to take specific notes on the instructions my clients provide. I also make sure to exchange contact information and emergency contact information. I give thorough updates (with lots of photos) throughout the duration of the reservation. And I usually leave a little thank you gift for my new clients at the end of their first reservation. ❤️

Lacey was an absolutely incredible cat sitter while we were out of town for nearly a month. She gave us peace of mind with regular photo updates and detailed reports about Bob and Annie. Her professionalism and great communication made the entire experience stress-free. We were especially impressed by how she charmed Annie, who is notoriously shy! We highly recommend Lacey for anyone in need of a reliable and caring pet sitter.

Amazing as always! Our kitties adore Lacey and are always happy to see her! Having a trustworthy cat sitter to take care of our kitties while we are away has been life changing and allows us to travel stress-free.

Lacey was a wonderful cat sitter for my sometimes finicky cat. She took pictures and let me know how everything was going every day. I did not worry about my home at all. I will definitely use her again!❤️🐾

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $31.00. 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.
