I'm Jenny | Cat Sitting in Mount Airy, MD

Hello! I have worked professionally as a zookeeper with cats for twenty years- big cats like cheetahs, clouded leopards and the small but feisty fishing cat! Through years of training and building trust, I have been able to create close relationships with these animals. To the point that they’ve allowed me to give them vaccines, ultrasounds or take voluntary blood samples. I only use positive reinforcement training and they can leave the session the moment they feel uncomfortable. This reduce stress and helps them live their best lives. Enrichment is also key to ensure that an animal is not only physically healthy, but mentally stimulated as well. I’ve also owned cats my entire life. I grew up with my childhood family cats and the first thing I did when I moved into my own apartment was bring my young cat Zeus with me. That old man cat lived until 22 and he went through every step of my adult life with me- including moves, marriage and children. I currently own two bonded...

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I was happy to help a client who had a recently diagnosed diabetic cat. She was incredibly anxious about leaving her cat while needing insulin injections, but I was able to medicate her successfully and my client was able to enjoy her time away. It was extremely rewarding to be able to give my client peace of mind, and keep the kitty safe and healthy.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I always provide a complimentary meet and greet so we can go over everything in person. This gives you the chance to get to know me and I can meet your pets as well and go over your basic routine. We go over feeding schedule, medication needs, and location of water and litter boxes. If you have a shy cat, pointing out favorite hiding places is helpful! I want everyone to be as comfortable as possible. Once you leave your cats in my care, I provide daily updates with adorable photos and a recap of your pets day.

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

Safety is my priority. I have worked dangerous carnivores, including cats, in a zoo setting for twenty years so double-checking doors and locks and where animals should have access is ingrained in my daily life. Your pets safety and comfort is paramount. Communication is so very important and I do my best to keep an open line of communication with my clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $27.00. 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.
