Over 50,000 happy kitties serviced on Meowtel

I'm Alyssa | Cat Sitting in Blackwood, NJ

Hi! my name is Alyssa and I’ve had extensive experience in caring for cats and kittens of all ages (over 7 years of experience!). I currently own 5, 4 elderly and 1 adult. I’ve taken care of others as well as rescuing and nursing stray kittens off the street. I understand how difficult it is to care for another animal on your own when your schedule is hectic. I’m glad you’be decided to download Meowtel and provide excellent care for your kitties! They are family and deserve the upmost care, attention, love, and respect. I have experience in handling medications such as oral pills, skin ointments, and handling mouth, ear, and eye infections. I’m always learning about different conditions whether it is physical, neurological,...

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

When I enter my home or another’s, I scan the area for any dangerous items on the floor such as rubber bands, pins, string, etc. I have knowledge of various plants and foods that are toxic to cats and I immediately get rid of them (I will send notice to the owner if this is a concern). Any cleaning products should be safely stored in a cabinet and wiped clean with water on any area a cat may walk on. If there is a mess on the cat, I only wipe them clean with a damp cloth with water. I make sure all doors to the outside are closed and locked. I comfort the animal when there is a noisy storm or fireworks outside.

What is your favorite cat toy?

My favorite cat toy is probably a mouse wand toy! I love when they chase it around and catch the prey! Very rewarding and entertaining for both the person and the cat.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

When I am in the presence of a cat that is timid, I remain calm and confident to reassure them. I let them get used to my presence and let them come to me. I hold out a hand palm up and let them observe my scent. I try to look for these signs of a relaxed and happy cat: Ears up, tail up and curved, and relaxed eyes and hair. I come down and scratch them on the chin with a loving touch to tell them I am a safe being. Treats and play are great bonding skills too! I learn what they do and don’t like when it comes to touch and play.

Once again Alyssa did an amazing job taking care of my cat while I went away. She was very thorough with everything and sent me detailed and timely updates. I would recommend her 1000 times over!

Alyssa is amazing! She is professional, friendly, and totally went above and beyond for me, my home, and most importantly my cat. She made sure each visit was fun for my shy kitten and thoroughly communicated with me (pictures and text) , which I appreciate so much! She also organized my cat's space so nicely which was great to come home to. Overall an amazing A+, 5/5 end to end experience! I am so happy to have had her take care of my kitten.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
