Lauren was fantastic! She took wonderful care of our two cats and always provided updates and photos. Highly recommend Lauren!

This was our second time working with Lauren, and as expected, everything went great. My kitties were pretty shy this time around, but Lauren handled the situation with grace. We are so lucky to have someone like Lauren looking after our kitties when we are away. We'll definitely book with her again!

Lauren did a wonderful job taking care of our cat, Alice. She was able to give Alice her daily meds (not always a fun job) and also spend a little time giving her much needed attention. Lauren provided lots of communication with us (thank you) and was quick to respond. We rested easier knowing she was in good hands while we were away.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $32.00.

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.
