I'm Kelly | Cat Sitting in Auburn Hills, MI

From nurturing neighborhood pets as a child to a decade-long career within the veterinary field & animal rescue realm, my journey has always revolved around caring for animals. 🐾 What sets my service apart is my expertise in medical pet sitting. As a seasoned veterinary technician, I specialize in caring for cats with unique needs—whether they're recovering from surgery, managing medical conditions, or requiring specialized attention. Administering medications, handling injections, and providing gentle care are second nature to me. Beyond technical skills, my approach is defined by my warm, calming energy. I've often found that even the most shy cats tend to gravitate towards me, allowing me to quickly establish trust and...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I've been cat-sitting since I was a child for all of the neighborhood cats! In high school, I joined the Michigan Humane Society as a foster owner for cats and kittens, many of whom were sick or required lots of TLC and socialization before becoming qualified for adoption. In college, I joined the veterinary field and kicked off my pet-sitting career on a much larger scale. In summary, I've been caring for others' pets as if they were my own for over 10 years.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

By far, the furry friends made along the way! My favorite thing is when I receive random messages from past or current clients, telling me that their cat misses me. I truly love every cat like they are my own, and I absolutely love receiving photos and updates on them throughout the years.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My favorite cat-sitting reservation was for Sesame, a one-year-old Ragdoll cat. Her owner discovered that she was terribly sick with a life-threatening disease, and he wasn't confident that he could handle her at-home treatments on his own. What started as a one-time consult to teach him how to administer Sesame's medications turned into a 3-month booking. I visited the home daily to provide the necessary life-saving medical treatments. Today, Sesame is cured, healthy, and happy. I still visit her often - just to sip coffee with her owner while Sesame is purring in my lap. I feel incredibly honored to have played such a crucial role in saving her life after a heart-crushing diagnosis. We established an incredible bond and I will always adore her.

Scheduling with Meowtel was easy, and Kelly responded quickly. I could tell that she read all about my cats before coming over. I have five and three of them are very shy. She was very patient and managed to get one of the shy ones to come and play and they are now friends. She asked all the right questions about food and their likes and dislikes and other important things to know when taking care of my special little babies. I'm looking forward to developing a relationship between her and my cats so that they will know they're cared for if I ever have to leave home.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. 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.
