Meow! I'm Michaela, a Cat Sitter in , MA

I'm a local Somerville resident offering cat-sitting services in the greater Boston area. I started cat-sitting as a way to channel all of my cat-loving energies while circumstances prevented me from having a cat of my own. I now have a 6-month-old Siberian fluff-ball at home, but I still love making new kitty friends! I have over 10 years of experience caring for cats and look forward to getting to know your pet's unique personality. I offer home visits to keep things as stress-free as possible-- for you and your cat! You can have peace of mind knowing your cat is being cared for in a comfortable and familiar environment.

I had a great experience with Michaela. She was communicative and I felt confident even after our initial meet & greet. My cat is very shy and she was very understanding. Michaela was able to coax him out of his hiding spot. This was impressive because he's never done this with any other sitter... even if he immediately went to his _other_ hiding spot (he's a VERY shy cat). I look forward to working with Michaela again in the future.

Michaela took great care of my two maine coon cats. She sent pictures and kept me updated with how they were doing. I was a bit nervous to travel after being home for a year, but Michaela took wonderful care of my cats; I’ll definitely plan to reach out next time I’m traveling.

Michaela was so great! She came to meet Lola and see my space beforehand. She also sent me pictures and videos of Lola each time she visited and made sure she was happy with her food & water situation. I could tell Lola was very comfortable with her which means everything!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
