I'm Antonie | Cat Sitting in Catonsville, MD

I wanted to share this early on in case a repeat customer really wanted to book me. I will be on vacation May 1st -May 11th 2025. I know it's far ahead but I know people plan ahead, this way you are informed I will post this on the pawfect trip facebook page as well. I am currently an online streamer with a passion for animals, especially cats. I have grown up with animals all my life, but knew cats were my passion when I met my now wife’s cat 17 years ago. We have since gotten married and have had an average of 4 cats living with us at any one time. Our current cats are all seniors, ages 10-16; two of them we’ve had since they were about 8 weeks old. I started volunteering at BARCS in June of 2021 socializing cats. I quickly made my way up to a level 3 behavior cat socializer and was their trainer for all new cat socializers. I also foster behavioral/under-socialized kittens from time-to-time when needed. I volunteered a...

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

I've been a cat sitter since July 2022, since then I have done over 100 sits with several repeat clients. My experience with cats is about 16 years with the cats that came with my marriage, my wife had 2 cats. My main cat experience is from working at the shelters where I have been volunteering since June 2021 and worked with every type of cat from the friendly ones to the ones I'm more attracted to the shy, fearful and not so friendly cats. At the moment I'm in the process of becoming a certified cat trainer and eventually want to become a certified cat behaviorist.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

THE CATS, getting to know them and getting to know their quirks what do they love, how can I make their time without their family a good time.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 5 cats. Lovey, 17 yr old diluted tortie, F. She's a rescue from BARCS where I adopted her in August of 2021. Smokey and Bandit, 13 year Olds, brother and sister. Smokey is a grey tuxedo and bandit is a brown tabby. Got them as kittensnfrom a house where bandit almost got flushed down the toilet. Garfield, around 11yrs old. Came to us January 18th after being a stray outside our house for almost a year. It was cold and he needed to come in he's opening more and more each day. Floki, our little 1,5 year old mischievous tabby. A bundle of energy we adopted in Dec 2022 after foster fail

Antonie was a rockstar taking care of my finicky old lady and she almost didn’t seem to miss me since she had been getting such amazing care while I was away. He went above and beyond sending pictures and updates and making sure I knew how she was doing. It was such a relief having some taking such good care of her.

Antonie was amazing! He kept us completely updated on how our cats were doing with plenty of pictures and videos. Our cats really bonded with him. I have never felt more relaxed on a vacation before - especially for such an extended time period. I will definitely be booking him for our next vacation!

Antonie is our favorite kitty sitter! He does an absolute fantastic job with our two cats, following their schedule and medication regimen. Antonie provides ample updates and wonderful photos while we're away and always goes above and beyond when he's watching our kitties! He is truly a cat whisperer!

Antonie is a pro. We have used his services several times in the past. We have very specific instructions for our 4 kitties when we leave out of town and they are always very exceptionally met. It’s not easy to leave your babies alone for an extended stay, but this guy has GOT IT! So much so, that when we first come home, the cats are disappointed it’s not Tonie. Thank you Antonie, you are the best of the best.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. 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.
