I'm Steve | Cat Sitting in Saint Louis, MO

Hey there! I’m Steve, a retired college professor and a lover of cats. No I won’t actually bore your cats with classroom lectures, but I will keep them fed and engaged while you’re away. My partner and I currently have two cats: Stella is the boss in charge. I rescued her after she had lost her tail in an accident and was found wet and starving by a friend. Grace is our prima donna demanding constant attention. She was part ...

Learn More About Steve

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Most cats need a bit of social interaction every day. I enjoy providing that human interaction to kitties who need a friendly touch and a kind word.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I work from a checklist of topics to learn each cat’s routine and the cat owner’s expectations. I like to meet the cat(s) and their humans before a new visit.

This was Steve's second time sitting for Sasha and we had another great experience! He provided detailed updates and made sure Sasha had everything we needed.

Steve did a great job with Sasha! She was a little reserved, but he didn't take it personally. He sent detailed updates with photos every day and made sure Sasha had everything she needed. I'll be happy to book with Steve again!

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 $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.
