Attention to Detail

Shelby was amazing!! She took the time with our kitties and gave them the attention they needed that was tailored to their specific personalities. The updates were thorough and we felt they were well taken care of! We will be booking again!!

Shelby was a wonderful cat sitter! I loved the in-depth updates I received and the above and beyond care she gave my kitties. One of my cats got sick while Shelby was cat sitting and she cleaned it up no problem, while also easing my mind as a cat mom that he had likely just eaten too fast (which was definitely the case). Shelby was kind, thorough, and caring to my sweet babies. I 12/10 recommend!

Shelby did an AMAZING job taking care of our two cats! We have a diabetic cat and then one with three legs so both come with unique needs. Shelby was great with updates, communication, and being reliable! Our cats felt right at home with her! Absolutely will be booking with Shelby again!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $27.00. 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.
