I'm Emma | Cat Sitting in Brighton, MA

*Summer 2024 Update* I am moving to PA at the end of July to settle closer to family with my fiancé and our cats. I am so excited, but also sad to leave behind the wonderful kitties I have met along the way! I want to say thank you to all the cat parents who have trusted me with their babies' care in Boston - it's meant the world to me and I will miss seeing all of the furry friends I have made! I'm Emma or Em (she/her) and I have 3 cats (Reuben, Prince Salami, and Yzma-Gloo). I am 27 and I have spent lots of time with kitties throughout my life - I just love them. In 2020 I began working at Newbury Animal Hospital as a clinic receptionist, after graduating from Smith College. I spent a year there and assisted technicians with routine procedures such as nail trims and fluid administration. As a pre-teen, I volunteered taking care of shelter cats and fost...

Learn More About Emma

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

Cats are an essential part of my life. They make me happy and I couldn't imagine living without them - I genuinely enjoy spending time around cats and getting to know their unique personalities. Growing up there was always at least one cat in the house. That being said, I have been volunteering with cats and fostering them since I was 7 years old, about 20 years now.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 3 cats - two boys (Reuben and Prince Salami) and one silly girl (Yzma-Gloo).

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I provide virtual or in-person meet and greets depending on client preference. After reviewing all the details of care I like to confirm what we have gone over and make sure that vet release forms and cat carriers are available in case of emergency. I review my process with the client, in that I like to send a photo when I first arrive for each reservation, and one at the conclusion, to detail visit timing. I then provide a further update with the rest of the visit photos and a brief write-up. I also make it a priority to establish a key return method.

Emma put me, a very anxious cat mom, completely at ease. She sent me plentiful positive updates and so many wonderful pictures. I will absolutely be working with her in the future.

Emma is wonderful! She took amazing care of my two cats, gave them lots of individual attention and playtime, and provided me with prompt, detailed updates. I trust my cats are in great hands with Emma and look forward to booking with her again.

Emma did a phenomenal job caring for our two cats over a long trip. It was a joy to watch her get to know our cats through the detailed updates and photos. She gave our people-loving tabby lots of attention and even located and befriended our shy tuxedo! Great work with all the care details too.

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 $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.
