I'm Ivey | Cat Sitting in Germantown, MD

Hello! My name is Ivey, and I've worked with cats my whole life. I'm currently a cat mom to 2 kitties: Cosmo, my 15 year old Russian Blue, and Calypso, my 6 year old Diluted Tortie! I met both Cosmo and Calypso at my local animal shelter, which I've volunteered at for the past 2.5 years. Every cat is different in its needs, personality, and behavior. Through my time in volunteering in multiple shelters and being a momma to multiple cats, I've picked up a few tips and tricks! I've worked with fearful, food-motivated, energetic, mischievous, aggressive, sleepy, polite, brainless, and talkative kitties. I am confident in administering oral medication, giving eye drops, handling picky eaters, wrapping cat burritos, and even breaking up cat fights. There's not much I haven't seen! My primary occupation is in Talent Acquisition, so I spend my time improving people's experiences, learning about them and their skills, and connecting ...

Learn More About Ivey

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy getting to know a cat and earning its trust for me. At the same time, I also like to be a source of reassurance for cat parents. I personally have 2 cats that don't get along and one of them is a senior, so I really appreciate reassurance regarding my kiddos. I really like to be responsible and responsible enough to provide reassurance to all cat parents.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I do! I have 2 kitties: Cosmo, my 15 year old Russian blue, and Calypso, my 6 year old Diluted Tortie. I got both from my local animal shelter, where I love to volunteer!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Know what degree of flexibility you're comfortable with. If you want your sitter to follow instructions to a T, don't be afraid to say that! If you're not too picky, be sure to state what's most important to you.

Ivey's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Ivey was fantastic. She took careful notes and asked good questions when we first met to go through our cats' routines, was responsive to our messages, and was wonderful interacting with our cats. She kept us well informed during her visits with both messages and photos and followed all our requests perfectly. We feel completely confident in Ivey's caregiving.

Ivey immediately connected with my kitties, helping them feel comfortable and well cared for. She send daily updates with pictures and text to let me know how things were going. When I returned home I found my kitties happy and healthy. I would happily employ Ivey when I have to be away from home again.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
