I'm Karissa | Cat Sitting in Hastings, MN

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. Our two cats, Artemis and Apollo, are still adjusting to the move and are less than ecstatic about the freezing winter temperatures coming in to the house when we open the door. However, they do love the sunshine during the Minnesotan summer! I'm ...

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.
