I'm Marissa | Cat Sitting in Windham, ME

Hi, my name is Marissa! I have always been a cat person...when my parents gave in to 8-year-old Marissa's begging for a kitten, it was the best day ever!! Ever since, I have had cats in my life. I currently live in Windham, ME with my husband, three cats, and dog. I have four years of experience caring for my own furbabies. All are very different, so I am familiar with a variety of cat personalities. Marshall is a playful orange tabby and has been my little sidekick who acts more like a dog than a cat - I have even taught him to sit! His sister Ember is a big ole fluff ball tortie that is independent but loves cuddling and has the squeakiest meow I have ever heard. Mini, a white short hair, joined our family as a shy and aggressive foster cat, but has since been adopted and warmed up quite a bit although still likes to be given her own personal space. Marshall has Inflammatory Bowel Disease that causes pancreatitis which has required hospitalization more than 5 tim...

Marissa is the best - she goes above and beyond to make sure our kitties are happy and well cared for, and our house is in good shape. One of our cats needed meds this trip and Marissa managed it easily.

I would definitely hire Marissa as my cat sitter again for my 2 cats. She is very professional and attentive as a cat sitter. From the videos and photos that she sent me, I can tell that she kept the litter box clean, played with and interacted with my cat that was not shy and afraid of strangers. Marissa even attempted to locate my shy and scared cat to make sure that he was doing alright. I assured her that my home cameras showed me that he was coming out in between her visits to eat and drink his water. I will definitely be booking Marissa again in the future.

Marissa took great care of our older cat and was able to administer her medication, too. She was great at communicating updates!

Marissa helped care for my cat Jasper when I was out of town. She was very professional, responsive and caring for my cat. She gave me live updates and took pictures. I would recommend Marissa to anyone!

Marissa was very diligent, communicated well, and sent great pics (including of my cat’s litter box to show it was clean). Plus, my cat seemed to love her! Would book her again!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $35.00. 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.
