Meow! I'm Barb, a Cat Sitter in , NC

I have loved cats for as long as I can remember, and I have always had a special affinity with them. I currently live with six cats - Amber, Cleo, Apollo, Lucy, Spots and Luna - along with their black lab friend Finn. I’ve been a professional cat sitter since 2017.

Barb was wonderful. From the first introductory meeting to the time she took care of our crew. From the pictures and after we got home you could tell the cats were well taken care of. She is great with cats and truly loves her job.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
