I'm Samantha | Cat Sitting in Cambridge, MA

Hello! **I will be temporarily not accepting new clients - I do expect to open it back up in a couple months** I'm Sam and I am a H U G E fan of cats (and all animals)! I've been completely enamored with cats since I was young and have always wanted to work with them. I grew up with a brother-sister duo, one of which is still around almost 20 years later! I currently live away from my almost 20 year old lovebug, but live with my roommate's goofy and adorable 3 year old kitty. Before Meowtel, I had experiences cat sitting for relatives and friends, and have cared for 5 cats with very different personalities in one home before. I have experience with all sorts of cats, from kittens to seniors, and from shy to friendly to feisty. I volunteered at an animal shelter a few years back and started again at a different shelter about a year ago, which I absolutely love. During my cat visits I will: - Feed as directed - Refresh and refill water - Clean the litter box when needed and any additional spot cleaning - Play with your...

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

I've been catsitting for a couple friends & family occasionally for many years, but I just started on Meowtel August 2023 :) It's been an absolutely wonderful experience and such a privilege to be able to meet & care for so many purrfect kitties while they're their owners are away 💜

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I've really enjoyed meeting so many different adorable kitties with so many different purrsonalities - and giving them all the TLC they need!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Toby is my almost 20 year old childhood cat who still lives with my parents in CT (I visit when I can!) - He slept by my feet every night I lived with him for 18 years & he's the reason I know some cats do actually like belly rubs 😂 (he's the gray tabby in my photos) Nuggy is my roommates cat who is 3 years old and very sweet, playful, and goofy. While he isn't my cat, I adore him dearly (he's the fluffy brown kitty in my photos)

Samantha was an incredible sitter. From our meet and greet, we could tell that she was a cat whisperer— even our shy cat, Petrie, approached her (something she never does with strangers)! During our 10-day vacation, we missed the cats but felt reassured daily because we would get lots of pictures and updates from Sam. We know our cats had a great time with her. We will definitely be a repeat client of Samantha’s on our next trip! Thank you for your hard work, Sam!

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.
