I'm Amanda | Cat Sitting in Hammond, IN

Hi! My name is Amanda and I would love to be your next cat sitter! I am a Cat Mama of three sweet kitties, Ava, Freya, and Rumi. Family lore is that I fell in love with cats even before I could walk! Friends teasingly call me the cat whisperer, because I've never come across a cat that didn't warm up to me. When I'm not home playing with and cuddling my own babies, I'm a full time librarian! I specialize in local history and preservation. I love to travel, so I know just how nerve wracking it is to leave your babies behind while you travel, and how hard it can be to find someone you trust to take care of them! I'm currently in Hammond, Indiana and the neighborhoods I serve are what is usually considered Northwest Indiana: Hammond, Munster, Griffith, Highland, East Chicago, Dyer, Schererville, Merrillville, and Crown Point. I am ...

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

Prior to Meowtel, I often cat sit for friends and family. I've been with Meowtel for a year now and loving it!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

One of the reasons I became a cat sitter was because I could never find a cat sitter! I often looked online and never found any sitter apps that were specific to cats and realized other cat parents were likely doing the same thing - so I decided to become a cat sitter! I am always so worried about my cats when I travel and knowing there is a cat sitter I can trust makes all the difference. As a cat sitter, I enjoy knowing that I can provide that peace of mind to other cat parents and make the transition for the kitties themselves that much easier!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have three! Ava is 12 years old, Freya is 7 years old and Rumi is the new baby in the family... he's 4 months old! It's been a little hectic at our house as you can imagine, but we're loving it!

Amanda's Reviews

Attention to Detail

We have hired Amanda 3x so far with more plans in the future. We have 3 cats and don't care to cage them in kennels when we travel. Amanda takes lots of photos and spends time playing with the cats. It makes my family feel very comfortable even when we are away and missing the kitties.

Amanda is an incredible kitty sitter. She is so thorough and thoughtful of not only our kitties’ wellbeing but also us. Her efforts went above and beyond what we hoped for. My only hesitation in writing this review is that everyone will want Amanda as their sitter and we will never be able to book her again. Are we able to call “dibs” on her for all future bookings?? With much gratitude, Jen, Rob, Olive, Clyde and Ruby.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $33.00. 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.
