I'm Tanya | Cat Sitting in Cambridge, MA

At this current time, I am only taking reservations up to about 9 days (if my calendar is blocked off for some of the time, feel free to contact me via my inbox, and I might be able to accommodate you). TAKE NOTE: I do offer twice a day visits, but I do that on a case to case basis, due to my bicycle being my main source of transportation (it's the reason why I have twice a day shut off on my calendar). Contact me via my inbox, to see whether your location would be doable for me. Thank you! I know how difficult it is to have to leave your kitties behind while you travel (they are a dear part of your family). I share both photos and daily reports to keep them in your heart while you are away. I want you to know that they will be well taken care of, my heart to their heart(s). Love and meows. ก₍⸍⸌̣ʷ̣̫⸍̣⸌₎ค I have been around cats for a lot of my adult life and I understand fully that every cat has their own unique personality and they basically own you (and that is what we love about them!). I adore their individuality and different temperaments. I will cater to the specific emotional needs of your cat (or cats), using my intuition and calm demeanor. As an example, I recognize that some cats are skittish when they are in the presence of someone new and unfamiliar. I will carefully and lovingly meet them with that in mind. In regards to this aspect of a cat's personality, I believe in consent. I let them get to know me on their terms. I have...

Tanya's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Tanya was an awesome catsitter. At our first meeting, she took careful notes and asked good questions. While I was away, Tanya sent me the most thorough, detailed updates I could have asked for, along with adorable pics. She offered extra visits to support my cat, and when I returned home, my cat was relaxed and not stressed at all after having such good company all week. Would give my top recommendation. 🩷🩷🩷

Response from Tanya on Nov 28, 2023 "It has been my pleasure! Bebe is such a darling sweetheart. (^..^)ノ"

Tanya took care of our two cats for 11 days while we were out of town. She sent detailed updates and professional quality photos of our cats everyday! One of our cats is very shy but Tanya was able to get him out of his shell. Tanya also brought toys to play with them and they really enjoyed it. We returned with happy and well taken care of kitties. Highly recommended!

We worked with Tanya multiple times and the experience was always wonderful. Tanya was kind, prompt, and professional. Our cat was very comfortable around Tanya. Her reports with pictures make us smile every time. I would definitely recommend Tanya!

Our experience with Tanya was excellent. From her attentiveness and sensitivity towards our cat at the Meet & Greet to her superb daily updates, Tanya showed both professionalism and genuine enthusiasm for the care she gives. Looking forward to booking her in the future!

Tanya did an excellent job taking care of my cat! BG is very skittish and shy but Tanya made sure she had all her needs met, and always gave me timely and helpful updates.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

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.
