I'm Amber | Cat Sitting in Matthews, NC

Greetings and hello! I would love to care for your cat while you’re away. I’ve had cats of my own for about 25 years and have fostered over 15 cats from local shelters over the years. Fostering providing me with excellent experience in understanding cat "language" and adapting as needed. I am exceptionally patient and let them set the pace of our relationship. You’re scared and just want to sit in a corner? No problem, I’ll sit on the floor in the room with you and be available when you’re ready for scratches....

Learn More About Amber

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes! Frank (5yo) and Margie (3yo).

Are you usually available during holidays?

Yes! I tend to do my traveling on non-holidays, except Labor Day weekend (to celebrate my anniversary).

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

This might actually be my favorite cat personality. When I'm working to build a relationship with a timid cat, I sit on the floor a few feet away from them and let them sniff my hand and eyeglasses (these have a lot of your pheromones!). I talk to them in a calm and quiet voice, and avoid sudden movements. Depending on their vibe, I might try to engage in play. My overall goal is to help them understand that I'm not a threat and will follow their lead. I also understand that some cats just don't have an interest in strangers, and that's okay. They will still feel safe and secure while in my care.

This was my second time having Amber come watch my cat while I went away for a week! Leaving my cat is always super difficult for me because I love him so much and he is a very social and extroverted cat. Amber did a great job to see that all of his needs were met , and even snuggled with him and played with him each day! I loved getting pictures and videos of him each day while I was gone as well! :)

Amber is the best! She has watched after my cats twice now and i could not be happier. Amber developed a relationship with my cats and they really trusted her and had plenty of affectionate and playtime. I would 100% recommend her to others. 😁

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $33.00. 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.
