I'm Justine | Cat Sitting in Malden, MA

**Ask me about my new client special!** Hi I'm Justine, I've been a cat mom for the last 4 years to my big boy Binx and the last two years for my little girl Salem.

Learn More About Justine

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to meet new cats and seeing their own unique personality. I also love to see how each cat is in their home or safe space because that is where the cat is most comfortable so if you have a silly orange cat ill get to laugh while visiting or if your cat is more of just a chill and relax cat we can sit on the couch and hang out. There are so many personalities which make the job that much more fun.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes, I do! My big boy is Binx who is a chonky calico, and Salem my skinny mini baby who I rescued.

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

Get all the information. Never be afraid to ask a question to make sure things are covered. As a sitter my aim is to make yiu feel comfortable and safe just like I do with why my own!

Justine was amazing! She went above and beyond. We will definitely be hiring her again for any future vacations. This is the first time I have left my cat with someone other than my partner. However this time my partner was vacationing with me and instead of taking Miranda, my 13 year old cat, we decided to hire Justine to limit as much stress as possible to Miranda. (In her old age, any change in routine can stress her out) Justine was super attentive during our meet and greet. She helped reassure me that taking care of an older cat with many quirks would be no problem for her. Miranda instantly connected with Justine which is rare sight for me to see. Miranda normally doesn't approach strangers that quickly. During our time away, Justine sent many updates each visit and, with each update, my anxiety subsided letting me enjoy my vacation with my partner. Justine was wonderful in making sure Miranda was happy and she understood the quirks that she has. She took very good care of Miranda and our place, quickly cleaning up any accidents or messes that occurred. As I said in the beginning of this essay of praise, we will 100% hire Justine again if she is available. She went above and beyond for us and I know she'll do that for any of her other clients.

Justine was very communicative with me and receptive to my cat's needs. My cat is very shy so I really appreciated her confidence in getting to know him, and she was great at recapping each visit with him.

I was initially hesitant to hire a cat sitter through an app, but Justine was so responsive and conscientious that those worries were quickly put to bed. She sent lovely updates and pictures, and handled his complicated feeding instructions and medication with ease. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Justine to anyone who needs a cat sitter!

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 $30.00. 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.
