I'm Kristin | Cat Sitting in Belmont, MA

I’m Kristin – a passionate cat lover with a lifetime of feline companionship, I have a deep-rooted affection for our four-legged friends. Having grown up with cats and being a devoted cat owner myself, I understand the joy and comfort they bring to our lives. While circumstances may currently prevent me from having a cat of my own, my love for these furry creatures led me to volunteer at a local cat shelter for many years. As an adoption ambassador, I often built connections with the more hesitant cats - those who needed a little extra time to feel secure in their surroundings. It was a fulfilling role, and I took pride in helping these shy felines find their forever homes. With a car at my disposal and flexible hours, I am well-equipped to accommodate both your schedule and the unique needs of your cat(s). My commitment extends beyond basic...

Learn More About Kristin

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

I have cat sit for friends now for at least four years; dog sitting for almost ten years. Most of these have been residential stays overnight; however, I have also done visits over the holidays for friends with multiple cats and multiple meal placements. (Joe takes his meals in the kitchen, Steve takes them upstairs in a bedroom, etc.)

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love meeting new cats and figuring out what motivates them; I also enjoy playing and just sitting with them and observing their quirks.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I do not have kitties now - honestly I still miss my last cat, who passed several years ago. China was a shelter kitty; she was very shy at first, but we grew quite close. A roommate told me China knew what my car and car lock sounded like, because when she'd hear it she'd come wandering in and wait for me at the top of the stairs.

It went very well! I really liked Kristin and would hire her again if needed. She was timely and responsible. Kristin took super cute pictures of Polymnia, and sent them every day. She brushed her--which is something my cat loves-- and figured out the best way to play with her.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $31.00. 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.
