I'm Madelynn | Cat Sitting in Durham, NC
My name is Madelynn and I have a senior cat of my own! I’ve cat sat for many people before, including multiple cats in one home, cats with medical issues, behavioral issues, as well as kittens as young as 5 months. With having a senior cat, I’m very used to giving cats medications (in many different ways- my cat has definitely evolved to like pills less and less as he’s aged so I have a few tricks up my sleeve). I adopted my cat BB (short for Bellybutton) from a shelter in 2017, and he's 13 years old- he's the black cat in my profile and cover photo! The shelter I got him from is one that I volunteered for when I lived in Maryland; while I haven't gotten a chance to volunteer at the shelters here in Durham yet, I'm hoping to start soon! I’m a graduate student at Duke, so my schedule is very flexible- I have a few classes in the afternoons Mond...
Madelynn was excellent as usual. She worked so hard to make sure our kitties felt loved and cared for. She sent timely and detailed updates with pictures. We feel so comfortable leaving them with her. They weren’t even angry with us when we returned.
Madelynn was great with my kitties. She provided great updates and photos that allowed me to enjoy my vacation without worrying about if my pets were being well taken. are of. I highly recommend Madelynn.
Madelynn is an amazing cat-sitter, and we are always happy when she is available to watch our cats. She takes great care of both cats and sends the best updates!
Madelynn was a terrific cat-sitter. This was the first time we used Meowtel and were very pleased with how quick and easy the whole process was. Madelynn sent picture updates each time she came and checked out out cat, keeping us ensured that all was going well!
Madelynn has taken care of my elderly cat, Ponce, twice now - both for about a week. She is an excellent caretaker and sends updates promptly after every visit with lovely and funny photos of my cat. She is very attentive and thorough. She also helped bring in my mail and some packages that were delivered while I was away. She is all around a great person and I would trust her to take care of Ponce again.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $27.00.
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.
