I'm Jana | Cat Sitting in Watertown, MA

My love of cats started in 2011, when I adopted my first cat and my whole life changed. That cat is now 18 (and currently sitting on my lap) and has helped me find a deep love for animals. I became a shelter volunteer shortly after I adopted him and specialized in cat care and adoptions. 364 days after my first cat’s adoption, I took home my second cat. She is now 13. When I moved back to the Boston area in 2013, finding a cat organization to volunteer with was my top priority. I started volunteering with Broken Tail Rescue in 2013 and these days I oversee our entire cat adoption center operation in the Fresh Pond Petsmart in Cambridge. Cat behavior and helping people find the “right cat” have become my specialties and I have cared for thousands of cats over the years. However, I have learned the most from Warren and Kelly (my cats). Both hav...

Jana let us make several changes to our reservation as we dealt with an unfolding medical issue with our cat. She was patient, easy to communicate with and very comforting while we were nervous about leaving. jinx warmed right up to Jana and our weekend away was salvaged, knowing she was in good hands :)

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.
