I'm Sam | Cat Sitting in Somerville, MA

Hi there! My name is Sam, and I'm a full-time cat sitter in the Somerville area. I'm the proud cat parent of a 10-year-old tabby named Ramble, an energetic boy with a heart of gold. I've cat-sat for a wide range of kitty clients, from boisterous kittens to sweet elderly cats, and I have experience accommodating a large variety of feline needs, from special diets to daily medications. I love getting to know new cats - what their personality is, how they prefer to interact, what makes them happiest. To me, every cat is a unique little person with their own quirks and needs. I strive to maintain an attention to detail, from the specifics of your cat...

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

I have been catsitting for around a decade - I started by looking after my sister's cats when she first adopted them as kittens, and branched out from there to caring for the cats of other friends and clients. I've dropped in to feed and cuddle with friends' lonely felines while their parents are away on vacation, and I've stayed overnight to keep an eye on needier kitties while their parents take longer trips. When previous housemates have had cats, I've stepped up to be their backup cat-carer whenever they've needed help - I love connecting with new cats and spending time with them.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

The cats! If you're a cat parent, you know well that every cat is a unique little person with their own personalities, quirks, and needs. I love every interaction, from shy kitties who give you the boon of a glance from afar, to bolder cats who strut right out to demand pets the second you walk in the door. I love finding out what makes each cat happy, and giving them that companionship while their people are away - I always love to stick around and spend time with the cat after they're fed, even if it's just sitting in the same room while they snooze companionably.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

Technically not a reservation - about a decade ago, my sister adopted two kittens, sisters, named Thomasin and Tasmine. Thomasin is a sweet and shy black cat; her sister Tasmine (who has since sadly passed) was a loving and rambunctious tortoiseshell. My sister was making a point of staying home with them, but one day had an unavoidable day-long obligation, so tagged me in to look after them - my first time really caring for kitties. Over the course of that day, as the kittens used me as their personal human-shaped jungle gym, I fell in absolute love with them (and with catsitting).

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 $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.
