I'm Sydel | Cat Sitting in Raleigh, NC

I've loved cats all my life - to me they are the sweetest, most graceful and loving creatures. I love and respect kitties and I believe to do so, we have to love them on their terms. I'm a bit of a cat behavior nerd, and I've watched all of Jackson Galaxy's (the cat whisperer) shows. I have been called a cat whisperer myself, and easily make friends with strays, shy kitties, "mean" (personally, I don't believe in mean cats, and will fight anyone who blames poor behavior on the cat) kitties, picky kitties... You name it! I have owned cats most of my life, and I have also volunteered at the ASPCA as a cat matchmaker. Currently I own two sweet siamese mix kitties who I raised from kittenhood and trained to the best of my ability. My own cats can do tricks (when they feel like it 😹), go outside on a harness, and have gone to petco with me in my kitty kangaroo pouch or in their cat backpack. I believe in enriching their lives as much as possible, but within their comfort zone. Recently, my cat Ruby has had some medical issues🩹, so I'm experienced with giving kitties tablet or liquid medicine �...

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

I've been cat sitting through Meowtel for 1.5 years, but I've been a cat lover since I can remember, and have always been involved in cat sitting or volunteering with cats.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to know new cats and being able to have fun and get lots of snuggles 😻.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

One of the most rewarding experiences for me is when I have lots of time to interact with a cat, and I'm able to bond with them - especially when I put in the time with a very shy kitty, and they open up to me ❤️

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
