I'm Sydney | Cat Sitting in Raleigh, NC

I have had cats since I was a child, 14 years as an adult I raised 2 strays from the streets and brought them into my home. I love to be around other kitties and make sure they are loved, played with and more importantly safe and healthy. I have been told I am the "Cat Whisperer" by both friends and strangers. Cats seem to gravitate towards me due to my calming nature and letting them smell my hand before engaging further. I really enjoy playing with cats who will let me as I feel cats aren't played with enough in todays busy world. I also enjoy speaking nice and calming things to cats as I feel those words help them grow into great fur babies. I currently have 1 Javanese of my own and she is very much spoiled and loved. When it come to feline health I am big on giving them the proper medicine, food and clean environment as no one wants to live in filth. A cat's surroundings must be a top priority because nothing ever ...

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

I’ve been sitting for cats for over 10 years. Almost a about a year with Meowtel!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Knowing that I’ve taken care of all needs, clean, fed, water and most importantly play!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My favorite was for one of my first sittings with Meowtel. I sat for 2 cats that both needed special needs and food. They were older and one had 3 legs and the amount of love both of those cats showed after I cared for them really made me feel like I was doing my part to help better their lives!

Sydney's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Sydney is great with our cats and she is proactive about other things around the house. She noticed when the bird feeders were empty and asked how to fill them. She even asked me about the mail. (I had it held so there was nothing to do, but I was impressed by her question.)

Sydney always goes above and beyond and takes good care of my super shy, sweet girl, Lucy. She came to my assistance last minute when I needed to spend time with my dad.

This is my second time using Meowtel and Sydney to watch my fur babies. I couldn't be happier with her and it is so nice to leave them in her care and enjoy my time away without any worries. I highly recommend Sydney!

We think Sydney did a great job. She was very receptive to our input on how to address our shy cat and she adapted her energy to suit him. Our fear was that he wouldn't eat because he's had that problem in the past when we go out of town and sadly he has notably lost weight from not eating while we're away. Sydney made sure to give him his space so he could eat. No weight loss and he was calm upon our return home. Our other little kitty also did very well under Sydney's care. Sydney sent lots of great videos too.

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.
