I'm Kara | Cat Sitting in South Boston, MA

Big cats, little cats, scaredy cats - I’ve lived with or owned them all! Thanks to my own very spicy (and very large) Maine Coon cat, Beef Wellington, I am well versed in kitty body language and managing feline diabetes (including insulin administration via syringe). I am acutely aware of the fact that hairballs and the aftermath of a scarf-n-barf situation ALWAYS end up on a porous surface and have become quit...

Learn More About Kara

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

I've had the pleasure of cat sitting for friends, family, roommates and neighbors since I was a teenager! Owning my own senior kitty with medical needs, I am very aware of how important it is to have a reliable and caring individual watching over your four legged companion while you are away.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Getting to meet new kitties and having the opportunity to appreciate their unique little personalities! I also love being able to give other cat lovers peace of mind knowing that their pet is being well taken care of in their absence.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Currently I have one rescue cat named Beef Wellington, he is a 13 year old Maine Coon and lives with two rabbit siblings!

Kara's Reviews

Attention to Detail

I was very anxious to leave my geriatric aged cat Maybelline for a work overnight trip as she currently has health issues and experienced the death of her brother the previous month. But I had no options so I tried Meowtel for the for the first time. Kara was local and had great reviews so I requested her. From the first correspondence Kara was very professional and detail oriented. I am admittedly nervouus when it comes to my older cat with health issues but she never made me feel silly for my lists of special derails and how they should be done a specific way. She just nodded, smiled, followed my requests exactly and then updated me with pics and notes on every detail I had outlined. A lovely woman, I will absolutely request her services again if I need. Thanks Kara!!

Kara was amazing! She stepped in at the last minute to care for my boys after a scheduling issue with a previous sitter. She was very detail oriented and made note of the special needs for my older gentleman who has had some recent health concerns. For each visit Kara notified me when she arrived, sent me several pictures, and sent me a summary of the visit. I can’t recommend her enough. The boys seemed to really enjoy her visits. When I got home, they seemed calm and there weren’t any piles of stress vomit. 🙂😺🥳

Kara was an amazing sitter for our high-energy kitty. She was incredibly response and detail oriented, and made us feel very at ease and know that our fur baby was in good hands while we were away.

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.
