I'm Marisa | Cat Sitting in Tampa, FL

Hi, and welcome to Sassy Cat Concierge! I have been a cat person since the age of six when I got my first ginger kitty that I named Muffin💜 Since that pawsome day, I have consecutively cared for multiple cats and have learned much on how to be a catastic cat guardian! I am currently a guardian to a rescued feral cat that I have named Lucy. As I work from home doing Telepharmacy, this gives me a little extra time to work with Lucy on becoming more domesticated. The following are just a few reasons I could be the most purrfect cat sitter for your feline!: - One must always jump to your cats every demand....as Felis catus are descendant from ancient and royal lines. This makes purrfect sense! - Never tell your cat no, …why would one? Cats are always right, even if they are knocking things off a table or dresser, or using your favorite chair as a scratching post! - Cats should always be given their own luxurious bed to sleep in, (even if it is your actual bed) and it should be kept clean at all times, ... remove cat fur, shed nails, and occasional fur ball. - Litter boxes must be kept in a place that kitty prefers it to be, even if, it is in the middle of your dinning room. (Its the cats prerogative) Boxes sho...

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

I have cat sit for friends, family, and co-workers on and off for about 20 years. I love getting to meet new cats and learning all about them. Cat personalities can definitely vary, and can be challenging to learn their quirks. - but, also very rewarding when the sweet kitty gives you a slow blink💜

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Cats can have widely varying personalities. It can be challenging to learn all the kitties quirks…. But so very rewarding when a kitty finally gives you a slow blink💜. I feel so accomplished and honored when I gain the trust of a super shy kitty, and the kitty allows me just a simple scratch or pet💜

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one cat named Lucy. She came into my life 2 weeks after my 21 year old cat Holly died in 2023. I kept seeing a cat, covered in weeping sores run across my yard. I trapped her, took her to the humane society for treatment. The vet wasn’t sure if her fur would grow back from the massive weeping sores……but after months of care , her fur came back! Lucy is a TNR (trap, neuter, release) cat indicating she has, at sometime, been caught, spay, and given rabies shot. For the past year I’ve been working to domesticate Lucy. She has definitely taught me lot! I thought domesticating a feral cat would be quick and easy…..Lucy reminds me everyday, this is not true…. Especially in her case! But it’s so worth all the effort when she gives me a sweet nuzzle and wants pets & scratches💜

I literally cannot believe how amazing Marisa did. She did what people who have visited me multiple times usually can’t manage, which was make my semi feral, super shy cat comfortable. She even got to pet her! I have family members who haven’t managed that! I didn’t think she would see either of my cats for the whole week, so color me surprised when they both appeared in pictures and video. Marisa was super professional and detail oriented the whole time. She had meticulous notes, and went above and beyond in her care. Honestly, I don’t clean as well as she did every day 🤣! I had so much anxiety before I left on my trip. My one cat had just been diagnosed with cancer, which is why I pulled the trigger on trying this service. By the third day of hearing from Marisa, my anxiety had lowered to barely a simmer, and my guilt at leaving the cats had been assuaged. 15/10, will hire again. And I got a lovely sweet note from her and some handmade soap waiting when I returned home! I cannot recommend Marisa enough!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. 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.
