I'm Carlye | Cat Sitting in Minneapolis, MN

Meet Carlye, Your Compassionate Cat Sitter: Hello! I’m Carlye, and I’m thrilled to introduce myself as your dedicated cat sitter. With a profound love for felines and a passion for their well-being, I am committed to providing only the best care for your beloved pet. From feisty and independent felines, to chill chonks, I adore cats of all kinds! I describe myself as a kind, compassionate person who ensures that each cat in my care is safe and well-tended. About Me: As a proud cat parent myself, I understand the importance of finding a trustworthy caregiver for your little ones. My two adorable felines, Spot and Yeti, are such lovable goofballs, and I adore their kitty antics and the joy they bring into my life. I strive to make sure that your pets feel the same love and safety as my very own beloved furry friends. Outside of my work with cats, I am also an artist (with work that often features cats, of course), gardener, and a trained mental health counselor. Experience: With a background of volunteering at a local cat shelter, I have had the honor of...

Learn More About Carlye

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 2 lovable cats, an orange and white named tabby named Spot and a fluffy long hair named Yeti. Spot is just the sweetest cat and loves to curl up with his humans for naps. Yeti is a wild young man, always on the run chasing his toys and causing kitty chaos. Check them out in my pictures!

What is your favorite cat toy?

I love a good wand toy! There is nothing better than encouraging some kitty acrobatics as they jump, flip, and flop to get that moving target!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I always take it slow with particularly shy kitties. Slow movements and soft speech are where I start. I always let the kitty come to me and build trust by sitting on the floor. I also will use the "slow blink," which is cat language to show trust and comfort. I also ask the pet parents, during the meet and greet, what treats I can offer as well to help win them over.

Carlye was an amazing sitter! She was very prompt with updates upon arrival and at the end of her visit with photos and videos. My Mallard appreciated the pets and loves she provided. A household item came up during my time away, Carlye was very accommodating with this added request. I'm so thankful my tiny furry overlord was in the hands of a furball lover. :) Carlye was also helpful during the initial paperwork process. I couldn't get the vet release to save for some reason. She sent me instructions to help the process along. I was very surprised and thankful for the assistance she provided. You want to hire Carlye! I know I'm thankful I did.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
