I'm Sofia | Cat Sitting in Parkville, MD

Hello! My name is Sofia, and I am a law student in Baltimore. As a Baltimore native, I am familiar with both the Baltimore City and County areas. I also grew up exploring and frequenting the DC and NOVA area since I have family there and worked for many different non-profit organizations in the area. Cats have a special place in my heart, because of their independent and intuitive nature. Since I was young I had a natural affinity for cats. I begged my mother persistently enough to get one. In his later years, my cat was diagnosed with diabetes. During that time I learned how to distribute medication to kitties through shots and pills since I had to administer his insulin and other important medication. After my cat passed, I found joy in being able to cat sit for friends and family. I also nanny part-time with seven years of experience and offer pet-sitting services to the families I nanny for. I spend most of my free time volunteering with different organizations in Baltimore, in undergrad I was president of our NAACP and SOUL ...

Learn More About Sofia

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

The thing I love most about cat sitting is spending time with the kitties. I also enjoy providing the level of service and communication that gives cat parents the peace of mind I would want if someone were watching my pet.

Are you usually available during holidays?

I am typically available during most holidays. I always offer a full schedule during Christmas.

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

Cats are very emotionally intelligent animals. They often know what is best for themselves when it comes to situation and attention. The most important step in handling an anxious cat is to follow the advice of the owner as they are the experts of their fur babies. In addition I typically carry on with the feeding and cleaning routine to let the cat come to me when they are ready. I find that the more you let the kitty have their space, the less anxious they become, and the more likely they will come out and meet me!

Sofia was great with our cat! Our kitty is pretty particular, but Sofia took on all her quirks and specifications with a smile! She was particularly diligent with our cat’s food schedule, which is prescribed and pretty rigid. All in all, we loved her and felt so relaxed on vacation! We would definitely hire her again.

Sofia was so great! Not only did she navigate my cat’s complicated medication and supplement routine, she also did an extra visit to check on him after he got into a bag of rice I had left on the counter, cleaned the mess up, and kept me fully updated.

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 $31.00. 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.
