I'm Alex | Cat Sitting in Sarasota, FL

Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a total cat purr-son! I'm a performer, public speaking coach, and nonprofit arts worker and I recently left my full-time position at a non-profit arts foundation to find more of a work/life balance. I currently work remotely part-time so I have plenty of time to spend with your sweet fur babies! I've been short-term and long-term pet sitting for a number of years in the Sarasota, Bradenton, and Longboat Key communities. I grew up with cats, house sit for families with both both cats and dogs, and my partner Owen and I have two bonded cats of our own who we adopted from outside a local theatre. I think cats are the best because they know exactly what they want and they have to choose you. One of my specialities is making skittish and uncertain kitties feel safe and comfortable, which is kind of how I...

Learn More About Alex

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

I've been cat and dog sitting for my entire adult life and have been doing it regularly for about 5 years. I'm comfortable with single and multi-cat homes, tiny kittens, senior cats, cats who are territorial, and animals with special needs once trained on their specific care routines.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Getting to spend time with the kitties! I love learning their different personalities and earning their trust. Cats are so smart and I like to take things at their individual pace, so I take it as a compliment when they warm up to me. :)

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I once house sat for a family with 4 cats and 2 shelter dogs while they were on vacation out of state. All of them had such different personalities and were all different ages so I felt like I was running my own little farm! It was the sweetest thing and I was constantly covered in a pile of animals. It was the BEST!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $33.00. 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.
