I'm Ian | Cat Sitting in Woburn, MA

I have always had a cat in my life since the day I was born. I had my best friend, Smokey, for 18 years. I always made sure he had an exciting life and received the best care, from exploring outside and visiting 3 national parks, to receiving daily insulin injections and fluids when he developed diabetes and kidney disease in his later years. When I had to find a cat sitter I was always concerned about Smokey receiving the extra care he required. I hope to alleviate that worry for others the same...

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I had a friend’s cat, Agape (seen in a bag in my picture section!) live with me for a little over a month. She was a demanding yet very loving cat with a loud personality! I was very happy to have her around in my new apartment, to introduce her to new toys, and to provide her with the copious amounts of attention she needs. I remember I once left the window open for her while I was at work. As I was walking back that evening, she was right there in the window, yelling at me to quickly come inside! Now that Agape is back with her cat mom, I try to visit her whenever I can.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I know that cats hate attention unless it’s on their own terms. Oftentimes they tend to love the person that ignores them the most! To make new cats more comfortable, I give them their space, avoid direct eye contact, and try to get low to the ground so I look smaller and less intimidating. I’ve coaxed many cats out from hiding spaces by laying on the floor with my hand outstretched towards them and my head turned the other way! But the most important trick is time. You can’t force a cat to do anything; you can only give them the time to make the decision themselves

Ian was great. He came prior to planned visits to meet the cat and learn about the setup we have. We recieved daily updates with feeding and play time pics. And even got packages brought in and a kitty-made plant mess cleaned up. Ian also has a really nice easygoing personality that made it relaxing to work with him.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $30.00. 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.
