I'm Madeline | Cat Sitting in Decatur, GA

I have had cats all my life and have five at home I adore. I started pet sitting some years ago with one of the early pet sitting companies in Atlanta and continued with that company for nearly six years. Later I started my own pet sitting business and also painted pet portraits for people on commission, focusing on cats. I still do pet portrait commissions! I love Meowtel!! My clients find me trustworthy, detail-oriented, and extremely conscientious. I have cared for a variety of cats with different temperaments and have given them medication as needed. Since I finished a long career in non profit management in 2021, I have devoted my time to cat sitting, caring for my own cats, and pursuing my career as an artist. I do kitty care within a 10 mile radius of my home in North Decatur, which...

Learn More About Madeline

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

I have been cat sitting as a side job for more than 20 years! I used to care for dogs as well but am more comfortable with cats, as I have always owned and loved cats. I love animals in general but I find cats to be very special. Cats usually connect with me, but I understand that there are all different cat personalities and I have certainly experienced different cat temperaments.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy spending time with cats and caring for them. I try to get cats to warm up to me very slowly and I do not push a connection. I also enjoy the fact that I am making the owners feel comfortable and relaxed when they travel. It gives me great satisfaction to take care of cats and keep everything related to the cats clean and tidy in their home. I also love to play with cats!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I have several cat reservations I have enjoyed since I have now completed more than 150 with Meowtel alone. Most recently I have enjoyed caring for a large tabby cat who knows me well and always wants to play. We play "soccer" and run around the living room to give both of us some exercise.

This was our first time having a cat sitter. Meeting Madeline ahead of time was great, she asked good questions and made us feel comfortable. The visits went well, she did not force a connection with our cats but she ensured they had everything they needed. They both warmed up to her during the last part of the visit. You can trust Madeline to take care of your babies and her updates and response times are top notch!

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.
