I'm Michelle | Cat Sitting in Raleigh, NC

Hello! I'm Michelle---a long time fan of Meowtel's sitter services, and an ardent cat-lover since I was a little girl (yes, I was the "cat kid"). 😽 Our family always had cats (mostly tabby boys) of all ages, and now I'm the overjoyed owner and bff of Ted, a wonderful 13-year-old rescue boy! For years, I have helped friends out with their pets---giving medication, cuddles, and occasionally staying over with the ones who need some extra TLC. I'm caring, readily available, and deeply responsible; giving the kind of love I'd want my fur-baby to receive in my absence. In 2015, I volunteered at Safe Haven Cat Shelter in Raleigh (where I adopted Ted) and learned extra tips and tricks for special-needs, injured, and e...

Attention to Detail

Michelle was so pleasant and easy to work with and sent me lots of great pictures of my cat even when i was able to respond. So grateful for her care, I will definitely be booking with her again!

My cats loved Michelle’s visits when I was away and got lots of pets and play time. I appreciated her quick responses and daily updates with pictures.

Michelle was awesome! We recently moved to the area and this is the first time we have left our kitties with anyone. From the first time we met Michelle during the meet-and-greet, we knew she would be the perfect person to entrust with our furry family members. It was clear from the photos that she won over the cats very quickly. She gave consistent, very detailed updates each time she visited. When we returned, everything was extremely neat and orderly. It seemed that the cats were almost disappointed that it was us, rather than Michelle, coming through the door. Michelle will be our first choice any time we are away form the kitties.

Michelle was an incredible sitter! One of our cats had recently been sick, and Michelle relieved our worries immediately. Her updates and photos brought a smile to our faces each day, and it was obvious our girls were well taken care of and happy to see her. She clearly went above and beyond the typical cat sitter routine, and we are so grateful!

Michelle was a truly amazing pet sitter. From the moment we had our first meet and greet, I knew she'd so a wonderful job taking care of our cat, Fig, while we were away on a two-week trip. Fig is an incredibly shy cat and often hides from pet sitters, sometimes even hissing at them when she's scared. So when we're away for a long time, we always feel bad that Fig doesn't get much human interaction. But, as opposed to many pet sitters we've used in the past, Michelle is a cat lover and a shy cat expert. She visited Fig every day while we were away and talked sweetly to her, never forcing Fig to interact more than she was comfortable. Because of that, Fig never seemed to hide while Michelle was there. We got daily updates from Michelle with wonderful photos of Fig and plenty of details letting us know she was healthy and happy while we were away. She always made sure her water bowls were full of fresh water, monitored her food intake and adjusted accordingly (per our instructions), kept the litter clean, and even treated Fig to catnip, which she loves. We never worried about our cat while on our trip. Michelle was reliable, friendly, and great with cats and we'd absolutely use her again next time we're away.

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.
