Hello and Meow! My name is Karissa and thanks to my mother, I have always had a love of cats. There have been cats in my life for as long as I can remember, and in 2015 I was given the opportunity to work with them exclusively when I applied to a cat-only clinic called Cat Specialist in Colorado. I worked there for a period of six years as an assistant, receptionist, and finally as a Nuclear Medicine Technician (a fancy way to say that I coordinated the section of the clinic that treated cats with hyperthyroidism). My husband (now also a cat lover, thanks to me) and I moved to the Minnesota area about a year ago.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
