I'm Kari | Cat Sitting in Somerset, NJ

Hello! My name is Kari Patane, I am 26 years old, and I have one cat and one dog! I have always had a passion for all animals and have been helping out in big ways since I was twelve years old! For as long as I was born, my family always had a full house of pets, including dogs, bunnies, and cats! I am one of four in my family, and by being the youngest, I connected with animals on a deeper level. Fast forward to college, in 2018, I was navigating a new world without my family and I felt lost. I decided to make a visit to the SPCA shelter in Delaware to adopt a cat! Long story short, he chose me, I found my cat soulmate, and the rest is history! Now today, my cat Loki, and I go on amazing adventures together! I trained him to become an adventure cat who travels alongside me and experiences life with me! We go on hikes together, out to eat, to parks, on walks, and vacations! It is so much fun to live life with your cat! In addition, growing up I was always called upon in my neighborhood to take care of all the pets, while families and couples were away. I have cared for a variety of animals including, dogs, cats, bunnies, gerbils, guinea pigs, chinchillas, frogs, fish, etc. My neighbor is a vet and has his own clinic, and I was very intrigued and interested from a young age to learn all about animals. I would volunteer there, and raise awareness for animals that would come in looking for a new home! While I was at college, I worked at Doggie Daycare, caring for, feeding, playing, walking, cleaning, etc. I also found small jobs on care.com throughout my college career and absolutely loved watching over all those furry friends! Also in college, I was a part of a service sorority and one of the services we did was going to shelters each weekend. We brought donated items from the week, walked the dogs and played with them, played with the cats and gave them company, dealt with feeding times, changed litters, gave medications, and many more! Volunteering at the shelter was one of my favorite times and I looked forward to seeing the cats and dogs each week! Currently, I pet sit for a couple of neighbors and family friends, but I am looking to expand and share what I am most passionate about! Over the years, on the side, in addition to working full time, I continued to care for and watch after family's pets. The most frequent compliments I receive are about updates and communication. I ensure to check in with every owner, send pictures and videos ...

Kari's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Kari was very easy to talk to and work with and she charmed our shy kitty, Stevie, who likes to hide from strangers. When we first met, she remembered to ask questions to get important information that I hadn't considered. I felt super comfortable having her take care of my two kitties. Great pixs! Quick responses. We will use her again.

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.
