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 a communicative, caring, and responsible gal in my mid-30's and--as a cat mom myself--here to give the same quality 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 speci...

Learn More About Michelle

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love meeting new cat friends and chatting it up with fellow pet parents! We all have so many stories about our fur-babies, so I adore learning more about each cat's personality (and I'm a big sucker for silly meows.)

What is your favorite cat toy?

My cat, Ted, is obsessed with catnip-filled toy squirrels (I have a small menagerie for him which--quite often--find their way under pieces of furniture. ;)

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

It's so important to let cats show you the speed they need! Some are very loving and chatty, but the shy ones often prefer to get used to a new person's presence incrementally. I make sure I speak aloud often so they get used to my presence, and if they want to come investigate, I never push the issue, but allow them to approach as much as their comfort and willingness allow. 😺

Michelle is truly a cat whisperer. She coax my shy Margery out of her hidey hole and gave her plenty of lovings. sent me pictures every day and kept me informed.

Michelle was absolutely phenomenal! She went above and beyond to communicate daily updates about Clancy and clearly cares very genuinely about taking care of our kitty babies. 100 out of 10, couldn't recommend enough!

Michelle is amazing! We have some really shy kitties - Michelle was so sensitive to their needs and made sure that everyone got love and attention in the way they prefer to receive it. She went totally above and beyond keeping the space clean, and her updates were amazing. I have some new favorite photos of my crew thanks to her! She was flexible with updates to our (admittedly convoluted) feeding process and made sure everyone was happy and had what they needed. I get so anxious about leaving the cats, especially because we're merging households and doing a staggered introduction process. Michelle managed everything flawlessly and I am so grateful to her!

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.
