Meow! I'm Madeline, a Cat Sitter in , GA

I have had cats all my life and have five at home I adore. I started pet sitting with one of the early pet sitting companies in Atlanta and continued with that company for nearly six years until I had my second child, all the time working full-time for nonprofits. In the late 90s, I started my own pet sitting business and also painted pet portraits for people on commission, focusing on cats. Returning to work full-time in 2001 as a nonprofit environmental educator, I had less time for pet sitting other than caring for my sweet kitties at home. My daughter and I volunteered at a shelter for a while when she was in high school, but I have learned the most from taking care of my own cats as well as the cats of the clients I currently have; my cat care business has grown by word-of-mouth.

Madeline was absolutely awesome for our two cats. She sent pictures and went above and beyond what a standard sitter would do. We will absolutely have her cat sit for us again in the future!

Madeline was absolutely fantastic! My cats are incredibly shy, but she took the time every visit to seek out their hiding spots and try to coax them out. Very knowledgeable and sent lots of pictures! 🥰

Madeline was absolutely 5 stars! Highly professional start to finish. Her love of cats is obvious and mine immediately took to her. She provided photos and updates each visit and was a joy to work with. Have already had 2nd set of visits and plan to work with her often in the future.

Madeline did a wonderful job taking care of my baby. She emailed me an update and sent me pictures every day. It's such a relief to know your baby is ok while you're away. She went above and beyond, getting our mail and trash in even though I hadn't asked her to. She's very conscientious and takes her job very seriously. And she's very sweet and friendly. We look forward to hiring her again.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
