I'm Toby | Cat Sitting in Windermere, FL

Hello Feline Lovers! My name is Toby and I have owned seven cats over the past 22 years and each of them have brought me so much happiness. I live in the Central Florida area, with my partner and our two cats Regina and Timber. After living with senior cats for so many years, Timber and “Gigi” have brought a whole new energy to our household by having young cats again. So from caring for senior cats, and administering medications to them, to playing and entertaining kittens, I have a lot of experience with cats of all ages. I have fostered cats through a local shelter when I lived in Southern California, and my partner and I even used to run a cat themed boutique gift shop called “Catnips.” We always had one store kitty from the shelter that was up for adoption, and several cats were adopted and found their forever home through the store.

Learn More About Toby

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I know that it can be stressful for cats to be away from their owners, so I enjoy being there to provide that companionship during the absence of the owners. Getting to meet, play, pet, and provide love to different cats with varying personalities is the best part of sitting for me.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two cats, a female named Regina, she is shy and super sweet and chill. Timber is a male snowshoe breed and can be very needy, and has a lot of energy so I am constantly looking for new ways to play with him and provide enriching activities.

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

I take notes during the meet and greet and I ask a lot of questions so that I am on the same page as the cat parents, and the expectations that they are requesting are clearly set.

It was our first time having Toby sit for our boy Gene. Toby did a phenomenal job in his care AND his details about his visits. Extremely professional and thorough, he was such a wonderful sitter. We can't say enough great things!

We booked with Toby pretty last minute and he was very accommodating with our first meet. While we were gone Toby provided very thorough and thoughtful updates-with a lot of photos! I felt confident that my cat was getting the very best care. He will definitely be our regular cat sitter!

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 $27.00. 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.
