I'm Kari | Cat Sitting in Ypsilanti, MI

I have never met a cat that I didn't like & that didn’t like me! Several times people have told me their cat is “not a people cat” but it comes to me! I have experience in cat sitting, I regularly cat sat for an associate of mine every time she went out of town for 3 to 4 years. She had three cats & also fostered humane society cats (two of those three were former fosters). It went fantastically! I also have three of my own, one of them was my mothers that I got for her, two are mine, they are the light of my life & they sleep in my bed with me of course!

This was my second time booking Kari and she was fantastic once again! This time one of my kitties needed two doses of antibiotic and Kari said yes of course! She sent great pictures and videos. Thanks again, Kari!

So glad we found Kari to watch our cat when we go back to visit family! I feel completely comfortable with her watching our cat and know she is reliable. Highly recommend!

Kari did a wonderful job taking care of both my cats. She gave detailed updates, sent pics every day, and took care of them just as I do. Would recommend to friends/fam and would use her again if we weren’t moving out of state. She is a sweet and warm person, your cats will appreciate her!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $27.00.

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.
