I'm Kristi | Cat Sitting in Melrose, MA

Hi! I’m Kristi and have loved cats my entire life. I love them because of their independent nature and unique purrsonalities! I currently have 2 cats, Abbey, a 4-year-old tortie, and Pemi, a 1-year-old orange and white tabby. Over my lifetime, I have had the honor of living with 12 different and wonderful kitties. Over the decades, I have dealt with almost all common feline issues and illnesses. I have dealt with and am comfortable dealing with a broad spectrum of kitty personalities and medical issues!

Kristi's Reviews

Attention to Detail

This was my first time using a cat sitter and Kristi was nothing less than perfect! She kindly came to us for a meet and greet where my kitty immediately warmed up to her. She was very thorough with making sure she knew where everything he would need during their time together. She sent me updates everyday including pictures and videos that helped me see how happy he was to see and play with her! I will absolutely use Kristi again I’m the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking to look after your fur babies :)

Kristi won over my shy baby Bebe and by the end of the week he was in her lap wanting pets and snuggles. That’s a huge thing for him and it made my heart smile!

Kristi was a wonderful cat sitter for our three cats. We had been fortunate to have her cat sit on two occasions. Both times, we got fabulous updates and pictures and felt so grateful for her help. We definitely be reaching out to her again!

Kristi did a wonderful job caring for my kitty, Otto. He's not always the friendliest guy, but seemed to warm up to Kristi. I appreciated the daily messages with pics. Put me at ease. Highly recommend Kristi.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $30.00.

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.
