I'm Jamie | Cat Sitting in Montclair, NJ

My name is Jamie and I am an avid animal person! I’ve been taking care of others’ pets or my own for nearly my entire life and I would love to talk to you about taking care of your furry friends. Let me tell you a little about myself. I currently reside in Montclair, NJ, just a few steps away from Glen Ridge and a short drive from Bloomfield. I am extremely passionate about animal welfare. Until recently, I had two beloved pets, Bandit (tabby cat, passed away at 18 years in 2020) and Whipple (American Eskimo/Shepherd mix, passed away at 14 years in 2016), both of which were rescued fro...

Learn More About Jamie

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

I have been cat sitting for most of my life, starting when I was in high school and continuing on and off as an adult (so for 20+ years!). I am extremely passionate about animals, particularly felines. When I was able, I would foster cats and kittens. Through this work I became familiar with taking care of new cat moms and their litters, orphaned kittens as young as 3 days old, and cats who might need special medications and/or diets. I'm very comfortable around cats of all ages, types, and personalities. Caring for kitties always brings me a tremendous amount of joy and fulfillment!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love being able to give my clients peace of mind while they are away, knowing that their furry friends are receiving the best care possible. It also brings me great joy to meet new kitties and build relationships with them, whether they are extroverted, playful, cuddle-bugs or need some time and space to warm up to me (being generous with treats helps!). Cat sitting fulfills the natural caregiver in me and it would be my pleasure to share that with your kitty!

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

When I receive an inquiry I try to respond within 1 hour if the message is sent within business hours and 12 hours if the message is sent before/after hours or on weekends. If I'm available for the cat sitting opportunity then I'll arrange a meet-and-greet, where humans and kitties alike can introduce ourselves in person and I can learn the details of my client's needs. Should things still seem like a good fit, we'll move forward with the booking and exchange information so we can remain in contact to confirm dates, times, and details.

Jamie's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Last year, I made a move across country from San Francisco, CA to Glen Ridge, NJ with a senior dog (16+) and an 8 year old cat. I had a purrrrfect situation in San Francisco with a dear friend who would stay at my place while traveling. All of that went out the window when I moved and was the biggest stressor and limiting factor with making travel plans. I finally took a leap of faith and found Jamie. She recently stayed at my house and was our cat’s companion for five days. What a gift! She took such incredible care of our cat and gave him the best care. She was so thoughtful during her stay and took great care of the house and checking in to provide fun updates. I really can’t recommend Jamie highly enough!

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.
