I'm Jackie | Cat Sitting in Braintree, MA

CURRENTLY OFFERING DISCOUNT FOR NEW CLIENTS 😻coupon will be applied at checkout😻 Hello everyone! I am a Mental Health Counselor and huge cat lover. Since I was a kid, I have always been a huge cat lover. I grew up with cats and have had multiple cats as an adult. I currently have three cats, Harley(8), Peachy(3) and Bonks (1). My friends would definitely describe me as a crazy cat lady! I love spending time with, cuddling and playing with all kitties, but will also give space to those who need it. I love meeting new cats and getting to know their different personalities. I have been cat sitting for families and friends in my area for about 7 years.

Learn More About Jackie

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

I started catsitting for neighbors and friends about 10 years ago and have been doing it professionally for about 5 years. I have been a volunteer at a local animal shelter since 2021 and working with the cats there has helped me learn so much more. I have been able to learn a lot about car behavior, body language and reading their cues which has become so helpful as a cat sitter.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 3 cats myself. My oldest is 8 and her name is Harley. I adopted her about 4 years ago and she is the sweetest snuggle bug. I also have Peachy (3 years old) who I adopted in 2022. He is a big goofball who loves to play, snuggle and eat. Bonks is about 10 months old and the newest addition to my little family. She a bit shy, but once she gets comfortable she so snuggly and loves to play and wrestle with her brother Peachy.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

With timid or anxious cats, I always like to take things slow and at the kitties pace. If a cat doesn’t seem like they wants to be approached, I’ll let them be. I never want to scare or push a cat who doesn’t want to interact. I find that sitting down on the floor is less intimidating and I always make sure a cat has a clear path to walk away if they choose. If a shy kitty approaches me I always start by letting them sniff my finger. One of my favorite things is when a shy kitty is able to trust/warm up to me, but I will never expect this from a cat and always respect their boundaries!

From the meet & greet through each visit, Jackie was fantastic. Communicative and clear, she listened and navigated our spicy scared cat with poise. She found creative ways to connect with Nelly and bring her out of her shell. Highly recommend!

We're so happy to have met Jackie! Pyrrha adores her. She gave us detailed, timely updates every day, with photos and video showing our cat happy and relaxed. She even brought in some packages that delivered while we were away. Glad to have her already booked for our next trip!

Jackie was so good with our fearful kitties! She never once tried to pet them, and after a few days they were brave enough to come out and be in her vicinity. they were well taken care of (although they still didn't want any humans near them) - we came home to a clean house and well fed kitties 😻. If your kitties have behavioral needs, Jackie's the one to call!

Jackie was very patient with my shy girl and by the midway mark of my trip she managed to earn my baby’s trust! I was super happy since my girl has not come out of hiding or let anyone pet her but me. I also appreciated that I expressed that was worried early in my trip that my automatic feeder was not going off for some reason and Jackie made the effort to come by at the scheduled meal time to check if it went off properly. I didn’t ask her to do that (I was going to monitor on the cat cam myself) but I appreciated the extra help!

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

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.
