I'm Jessica | Cat Sitting in Collingswood, NJ

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hello, my name is Jess and I am a cat welfare advocate in South Jersey ๐Ÿพ Iโ€™ve always been an animal lover & officially became a cat loving lady after adopting my first cat 15+ years ago. Since then, I have adopted 3 more cats and have experience with kittens, adults, and senior cats through my experience as a cat mom and by volunteering/fostering for local shelters ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿˆโ€โฌ› โœ… Why choose me as your cat sitter? First, I know that cats are our family members & their people want to know their cats are safe & well cared for while they're away. Second, when I travel, I am often thinking about my cats & wondering what they're up to. I love getting updates about my furbabies when I'm away. It puts me at ease knowing that whoever is watching my cats is providing them with love โค๏ธ, food ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ—, water๐Ÿ’ง, and clean litterboxes ๐Ÿ’ฉ. As your cat sitter, I would keep these thoughts in mind & provide you with plenty of updates & pictures ๐Ÿ“ท from each visit. ๐ŸŒŸ Curious to hear more about what kind of experience I have with cats? Iโ€™ve been volunteering for Voorhees Animal Orphanage (VAO) in the cattery since 2020 and can often be found socializing shelter kitties with all different purrsonalities. I love talking with potential adopters & providing education while they're on their search for their next 4 legged family mem...

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

I have been cat sitting with Meowtel since July 2023 and volunteering with cats since 2020.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes, I have 3 amazing kitties who I love dearly ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป Their names are Ralphie, Georgie, and Missy. Theyโ€™re all young adults & each of them are a ton of fun. They range from a little shy to super shy around strangers. So I understand shy kitties very well! I also have 1 kitty who crossed the rainbow bridge named Sammy๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿพ. He was my very 1st cat & he was 17 years old when he passed away peacefully in 2023. Sammy had a very dog-like personality and was super outgoing with everybody. He is my inspiration for all of my work with cats & the people who love them.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I typically do a short phone call โ˜Ž๏ธ with new cat parents to learn a little bit more about the kitties in the home. During this call, I also share more about myself, my experience with cats, and we schedule an in-person meet & greet. The in-person meet & greet typically lasts 30 mins & I ask lots of questions about your kitties routines, needs, likes, dislikes, etc. I take notes๐Ÿ“, which I always refer to before & during the reservation. It's very important to me to support cat guardians in feeling as good as possible when theyโ€™re leaving their kitties home during a trip.

Every time I go out of town I ask Jess to sit for my cat Maxx. He absolutely loves Jess. This was the first time she had to give Maxx medication and she did a fabulous job even though they were ear drops. Maxx always looks forward to seeing Jess even when she has to give him medicine.

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 $31.00. 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.
