I'm Meredith | Cat Sitting in Highland Park, NJ

I grew up with two cats and now have a lovable orange and white furball of my own. I have had her for 4 years and adopted her from an animal shelter I where I volunteered. She chose me that day when she stuck her paw out of her cage when I passed. I have a 9-5 job as a leasing assistant and can schedule a visit with your adorable cat before and after work during the week. I have greater availability and flexibility on the weekends. I am comfortable providing oral medications (pills) and insulin/medicinal injections. I have had Four Moderna/Pfizer vaccine shots. I have ...

Learn More About Meredith

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy getting to know the individual cats. I feel a lot of joy when a shy cat decides to come out and trust me.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one cat named Gemma. When looking for a cat to adopt, she ended up choosing me as I passed her cage.

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

For cats who are timid or anxious, I give them as much space as they want. I will try to sit in the same room as the cat and allow them to warm up to me in their own time. Some cats warm up very quickly and other cats take time but I have found my method has been successful overall.

Meredith was great with my shy kitty. She was fantastic with the basics of cleaning the litter box and feeding him. But the time she spent just talking to him and soothing him I am the most grateful for. She sent detailed photos and made me feel less anxious about leaving him the first time. She even accepted a last minute extra visit to fix one of our pet cameras that fell over. I came back to a happy cat! We already have Meredith booked for our next trip. I could not recommend her any more!!

I was a nervous Nelly as it was my first time ever having a cat sitter for my two void boys, but Meredith was so reassuring and helpful through the whole process and was very detailed as she took notes on all their care needs. She sends detailed updates on all of the happenings and of all cat-tivity. Some of the picture updates she sends are better than the pictures we can snag of them too!

Meredith was a wonderful cat sitter for our 2 very shy & nervous cats. Her patience and calm nature got them to join her for playtime & come out of hiding and they were genuinely happy to see her. We appreciate her attention to detail and thorough daily updates & photos. We absolutely plan on using Meredith again to care for our kitties!

Meredith did a great job, keeping me informed with photos of every detail and comments in a unique way. Totally recommended.

Meredith was amazing with my shy senior kitty, Theodore! She sent informative (and humorous) updates day-to-day, made Theo feel comfortable, and even got him to play with her (which is a feat in and of itself). Hire Meredith the next time you need a kind and attentive cat-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. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $32.00. 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.
