I'm Lesley | Cat Sitting in Somerville, MA

Hi and thanks for checking out my profile! To start, my love for cats goes back many years to my childhood. I grew up with cats and vibe with them naturally. Nowadays my home is blessed with my 2 rescue cats, Kiki and Munchie, my sweet girls, and they enrich my life every day. A little about my background: I worked in human resources for the majority of my career and when Covid hit I decided to follow my passion into animal welfare. I started fresh, learning the ropes of animal care in a local shelter. After a year of gaining invaluable experience, I moved on to a role in another shelter focused on cats only and it brought me such joy to work with these amazing little creatures everyday. I currently serve as Director of Programs for a MA Animal Cooperative and also volunteer as an Adoption Coordinator with a local fo...

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

I have been officially cat sitting for a year and have 3 years of experience working directly with cats full time in animal shelters.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love the opportunity to meet and care for cats! They always have their own quirks and personalities and I enjoy learning about each of their individual needs. It’s rewarding to give pet parents peace of mind while they are away from home.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two female rescue cats. Kiki is a senior gal who lives her life believing she is royalty, and Munchie is my delightful little menace who keeps us on our toes.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $33.00. 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.
