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...

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love building trust & forming a bond between me & kitty clients. It brings me joy to take care of their basic needs while also hanging out with them in the way that they desire. Whether that is through playtime, or just keeping them company while their guardian(s) are away. I find that cats are like teachers. They nurture my intuition & help me to stay mindful. I love the communication I have with the cat parent while they are away. Sending pictures & daily reports puts the parent at ease, knowing their fur baby is safe & cared for. The appreciation I receive back, brings joy to my ❤️.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

The first thing I find that is important, is to look at the potential cat sitter's profile & testimonials. Does it gel with your needs for a cat sitter? What is communication like when you reach out to the cat sitter? Are they responsive to your inquiries? Is the communication straight forward & clear? At the Meet & Greet, how are they interacting with your cat(s)? Is there a true sense of joy to be around your fur baby(babies)? Are they asking a lot of questions, taking notes? Showing warmth, enthusiasm, along with communication and dependability are key attributes for a great cat sitter.

Tanya's Reviews

Attention to Detail

This was my third time having Tanya visit my cat while I was traveling. She is very kind and thoughtful and sends very detailed updates that help me feeling serene while away. She really did an amazing job in taking care of my Tigro. Bonus: she sends THE BEST pictures :)

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.
