I'm Barb | Cat Sitting in Waxhaw, 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. Our family spent many years in Beira, Mozambique, where I loved to bring home feral kittens, socialize them, and find homes for them. Our Mozambican friends were always amazed that I could approach a spitting, wild kit...

Barb is the absolute best! She obviously loves cats and we feel so comfortable leaving when we know she will be taking care of our fur babies.

Once again....Barb is amazing. She is so loving, caring and attentive to the needs of our sweet kitty while we are away. She is also a great communicator and I always feel well informed at each visit. She takes amazing photos too!

Barb spoils my kitties in the manner to which they are accustomed. she gives my cats their Lysine and gives them treats. I have a shy kitty who loves Barb and lets her pet her and give her food.

Barb is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! This was our very first time and we knew from the meet and greet she did a few days before our trip that our babies would be in great care!! We have 5 kitties, and she took care of them purrfectly (see what I did there??) The pictures, the texts, and the care she gave to our babies was fantastic!! We found our new kitty sitter!!

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.

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 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.
