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 �...

Sydel did a great job of taking care of my cats including getting my shy / cautious cat to open up. I got great daily updates and pictures throughout the my time away and I will definitely be going back to Sydel for future sitter needs.

Sydel was very flexible with my changing schedule for taking care of my cat Daisy. She took lots of pictures during her visit and provided a great deal of information about her visit. Highly recommended!

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.
