Over 50,000 happy kitties serviced on Meowtel

I'm Judi | Cat Sitting in Raleigh, NC

My name is Judi Sunshine ☀️ and I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have kitties underfoot. 🐈🐈‍⬛🐈 I love all their unique personalities and the vibe they bring to my home and life. I especially appreciate their companionship now that I’m officially an “empty nester”. Not only do I love cats and have cats, I also know a lot about caring for them! I’ve spent over 13 years volunteering for a local cat rescue where I learned to bottle feed and care for newborn kittens, administer medications, vaccines, and sub-q fluids. I have also socialized numerous kitties and helped them find their forever homes. In total, I have over 30 years of experience caring for ...

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Meeting new people and hanging out with new feline friends is the best job ever! The thing I enjoy MOST is being able to offer my clients peace-of-mind while they are away as well as making the time as comfortable and stress-free for the kitty(s). Sidenote: I became a Meowtel sitter after using the service. It was such a game changer—a totally different experience than having a friend or family member help out. I went to Europe for 9 days and never looked back. My sitter updated me every day and it was so nice to know everything was fine and the kitties were having a wonderful time, too!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

*Roy* is an 11 year old Siamese who is now living his best life with my youngest daughter at college. *Izzy* is a 6 year old orange cat that moved in with me when my oldest daughter moved to Europe. *Willow* was a newborn kitten that I bottle-fed from birth. She is a 4 year old buff-colored tabby that is extremely smart and funny and loves to play fetch. You can see them all in the photos I posted. 🥰

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

The first time I used Meowtel as a client, I was looking to connect with a cat sitter who I felt comfortable giving the key to my home and watching my 3 cats for over a week while I was out of the country. I also wanted to find a sitter who I could use again in the future without hesitation. All Meowtel sitters are highly qualified and insured, but if it’s important for you to “click” with a sitter (like it was for me), you should definitely reach out and ask questions—about them, their cat-sitting experience, or anything else that’s important to you. I think you will find that their answers—and even their response time—will give you a good idea if they are a purrfect match for you!

Mark And Julie

Our regular sitter was busy, so Judi agreed to help us out. She came for a meet and greet prepared and took notes. While we were gone, she arrived everyday at the time she promised and let us know everything that was happening with pictures and texts. She took excellent care of our sweet kitties and had no trouble giving medicine. We really felt so secure in her abilities. She went above and beyond even leaving a little note on our return.

Judi was wonderful! She was quick with replies and flexible for my short-notice trip. She was very friendly and did a great job with keeping things clean and sending plenty of much-appreciated photos. Great experience!

Judi did an absolute wonderful job with our cat! She took time to play with her, snuggle her and even got her to fall asleep 🤣. She was so thorough with her updates. Made sure the cat had fresh food and freshwater everyday! Even wrote me a sweet Mother's Day note from my cat to me and it was very very sweet! Judi is very knowledgeable with cats as she has shared with me that she use to work and volunteer at veterinary hospitals and shelters! She was such a success and I can't wait for her to come next time!

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 $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.
