I'm Samantha | Cat Sitting in Cambridge, MA

Hello! I'm Sam and I am a H U G E fan of cats (and all animals)! I grew up with cats and had a brother-sister duo, one of which is still around 19 years later! I've been completely enamored with cats since I was young and have always wanted to work with them. I currently live away from my 19 year old lovebug, but live with my roommate's goofy and adorable 2 year old kitty. I have had experiences cat sitting for relatives and friends in the past, 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 was able to get experience with an even more increased variety of cat personalities and loved it. I more recently started volunteering at another shelter and love it already! I also have experie...

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 19 1/2 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 went above and beyond for my kitty. While I was gone, my cat decided to stop eating and drinking. Samantha was immediately responsive to my concerns and helped to being him to the vet where he was able to receive a little additional care. She was able to accomdate the timing of an emergency vet appointment and even continued to monitor him following. I was very reassured that my cat was under her excellent care and was a huge relief to me that she was able to bring him to seek medical attention when I was thousands of miles away. I highly recommend Samantha to anyone considering - she will take care of your cat like it is her own!

Sam did a wonderful job! She handled our cats’ nutritional & one cat’s medical needs, and took care of anything that came up (we asked her to investigate the stool situation & she created a Google docs poop log!). Our adjusted cat seemed relaxed and happy (other than that he couldn’t go out!) & our introverted cat acclimated well. Sam was very communicative & sent lovely daily photos that put us at ease. On our return both were fine; the thin cat gained some weight & the chunky guy had lost some, so this was a win-win! Sam has a calm, rational approach and attention to detail. She is able to assess what is needed and prioritize. She was so helpful to us as our cat’s medications have made travel a challenge. This was our second time using Sam and we look forward to having her responsive and responsible care again!

Samantha was such a great cat sitter. Both my old man cats were taken care of very well by her. They both gave rave reviews (when I came back they hardly blinked an eye which tells me they were happily cared for). I was nervous to leave them as I haven’t in several years due to pandemic and then relying on family to care for them. One of my cats is a little grumpy and the other is sweet and has medical needs. Samantha took great care of them, sent photos and updates and I never worried. She let me know what was going on with them-the good and anything out of the ordinary. I am so grateful and would absolutely recommend Samantha.

Samantha was very good with my sometimes shy cats. She was great with sending updates and that gave me feel all right about being far away.

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.

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.
