I'm Lauren | Cat Sitting in Gaithersburg, MD
I am a lifelong cat enthusiast with 7+ years of in-clinic experience as a Registered Veterinary Technician. I started my career in Washington state, ended up in Los Angeles, CA, and now I am settled in the Maryland suburbs (centrally located in the Crown/Rio area), where I previously spent my childhood cuddled up to cats, dogs, guinea pigs, and turtles in my family home. My career includes general practice, with secondary experience in emergency and specialty. I am the technician who is called in to handle the spicy kitties. My focus has always been cats. I currently have two black domestic shorthair cats, Celty and Rinoa, and they are spoiled beyond belief. Both cats have had some gastrointestinal issues since kittenhood, so it has been a long medical journey with the two of them.

The reservation went extremely well I would recommend Lauren as a cat sitter to anyone that needs someone to care for their cats.
Lauren is amazing! She is sweet, prompt and made us feel super comfortable leaving our 3 guys in her care. I looked forward to her daily photo updates and we will certainly be using her again!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.
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.
