I'm Katie | Cat Sitting in Raleigh, NC

Dear Guest, Do you hear murmurs of “vacations,” “trips,” “packing” and “What about the cat?” No worries! As the very first Meowtel in the Triangle, you are in purrfect paws at Katie’s Crazy Kitty Care StayCATion. Why “Crazy?” The *crazy* part is that your hoomans think *they* are going on vacation. In actuality, they are booking you— Pawsome Kitty— an all-expenses-paid vacation at a five-star resort! This place is so fancy that you’ll feel right at home…because actually…you *will* be at home. It's the ultimate stay-cat-ion of your catnip dreams! 😽🏝️☀️💤🌊⛱️🍹 We bring the resort to you! You won’t have to enter a carrier even once! No traumatic car rides, weird smells, or obnoxious dogs. No more waking up after your cat nap thinking “WHERE THE #$!% AM I?!!!” Crazy! (IKR?!) It seems too purrfect to be true but I assure you, this is right up your alley, Cat! Your purrfect accommodations include: 🐾 Your own purrsonal chef: Special diet? Raw, canned, kibble, freeze-dried— we accommodate all dietary needs with ease. Prefur a splash of water, Churu sauce, or freeze-dried-sprinkles on that kibble? Our pantry has everything yours has! Our professional cat chef will craft meals to your exact specifications, just like home. We are also happy to tend to your fawncy automatic feeder if that’s more your style. We are experienced troubleshooting multiple models to ensure that they function properly throughout your stay. 🐾 Your own purrsonal housekeeper: Our Head Housekeeper (she also happens to be our Certified Chef…yes, she is quite talented!) will tend to your litter box according to your special instructions. Do you poop in one and pee in the other? Trust us, we’ve seen it before. Do you poop about 1 foot outside of the litter box rather than in it? No problem, we’ll take care of that, too! We are experienced with all types of kitty commodes, from robots to a box in the corner with shredded paper for you old-school types. We will also vacuum and/ or sweep around your litter boxes each visit to keep things tidy and comfortable during your stay. Housekeeping also includes mail and package collection, basic plant care, trash/ recycling services, and the operation of lights (because we wouldn’t want to make your delicate paws work too hard, now would we?). Feel free to speak to us about any additional needs; we are happy to accommodate if possible. 🐾 Water Concierge: Water fountains/ bowls/ cups/ will be filled each visit and refreshed according to your purreferences. Ask our faucet attendant about our water-on-tap for the ultimate refreshment experience! 🐾 Purrsonalised Recreational Itinerary: Create your own itinerary! We offer a wide variety of activities to suit every guests purrsonal interests. Lounge in your own favorite sunny spot, cat tree, fluffy bed, or cardboard box. Whatever you have at home, we’re guaranteed to have it here! Play your favorite games with your favorite toys, or request a complimentary forehead message from our Master Masseuse. (You guessed it: she’s also our Head Housekeeper and our Certified Chef!) Of course, we always respect our guests “Do not disturb” prefurrences, as well. 🐾 Purrfessional Photo Shoot: All bookings include complimentary sessions with our Purrfessional Photographer (OK, yes, we have...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I began cat sitting in 2021. I was actually the first Meowtel sitter in Raleigh!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Caring for cats just makes my heart happy, it's hard to explain. A week off is about as much as I can tolerate!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

It's impawssible to choose a furforite! I used to cat sit for a handsome gentlemen in an assisted living community. He had two equally-handsome cats, and I really enjoyed spending time with all three of them. They were the best of friends (and a bit mischievous... ;-)

Katie is a fantastic sitter - she enables me to have a worry-free time away from my cats, because I know she’s not just seeing to my cats’ physical needs, but also spending quality time playing with them and giving them love and affection. All three of us are grateful for Katie!

As a Meowtel sitter myself, I know that Katie is one of the best in the area, but now that I've had my first experience using Meowtel as a client, I can confirm that she gives excellent care, and is so reassuring to anxious cat parents 😹. Katie gave excellent updates, and communicated very well despite cell service issues (my house is a total dead zone). We got adorable pictures and videos, and she was very understanding and chill when I asked a million questions or checked in on the camera during visits 😊. She also handled my cat's liquid medication very well, despite it being her first time with an oral syringe! Thanks Katie! ❤️

Katie responded quickly to my request. She came by for a pre-visit which was helpful. My kitties ended up being rather shy but Katie was great with sending me photos and updates. She even came by during a large thunder/rain storm. I highly recommend her!

Katie is literally the best caretaker for our girls. We have one cat who likes to eat slow and play fast, and one who is the opposite, with some spicy sprinkled in. Katie made sure they both got enough food and playtime each, and has charmed our sweet hissy girl.

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 $30.00. 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.
