**PLEASE message me prior to submitting a request to ensure that I have availability at the exact time(s) you need! It prevents me from having to decline requests and risk having my account deactivated. 😢 Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and support! 🙏❤️** Hello, and thank you for taking the time to visit my profile and consider me as a sitter for your furry friend(s)! 😊 My name's Kim, and I've been a cat person, through and through, for as long as I can recall! Having grown up with lots of cats in my adolescent years, my first job being at a pet store where I was employed for about 4.5 years, adopting and rescuing three cats of my own, I've been fortunate enough to have always had cats in my life. Aside from taking care of my own babies, I've also pet sit a number of times for others before joining Meowtel over a year ago, as well as assisted with many foster cats. I have extensive experience with cats of all ages, including bottle-feeding young kittens and administering medication to cats who were sadly ill, including pills, liquid medication, and insulin injections. While I, of course, love to interact and play with all cats, I understand that some are more laid back or timid than others and res...

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

Aside from cat-sitting for Meowtel since March of 2023, (63 reservations and counting!) I have cat-sit for friends and family, as needed, over the past several years! I have cared for just about all ages, from bottle-fed foster kittens all the way to 17 year old senior cats as well as given oral medication in both liquid and pill form and administered injections many times. Additionally, I've cared for kitties with special needs, such as partial blindness, hearing loss, ongoing medical issues, etc. I've also found that I've been able to help shy kitties feel safe and warm up to me quickly :)

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I LOVE spending time getting to know each cat's unique personality and finding what they enjoy most, whether pets and attention, playtime with their favorite toy(s), being brushed, belly rubs, or giving them space. (LOL) Cats are often hilarious little things, and so they certainly keep me entertained and literally have me laughing out loud! It especially warms my heart to be able to help the shy/scared kitties feel safe and earn their trust

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

Oh my goodness, there's no way I can choose a favorite. Each cat I've cared for has been lovely in their own way and brought me joy for different reasons! If I had to choose a general favorite, it would probably be the "only child" kitties lol. I love being able to provide them company so that they don't feel as lonely.

Kim was so great with our cats—she clearly has tons of experience with multiple cat situations and took time to check on even the shy ones who were hiding to make sure they were okay! I came home to calm cats and a very neat house. Updates were much appreciated with many photos!

Kimberly is sensational! She charmed both of our boys, including an extremely shy baby panther who takes a very long time to warm up to pretty much anyone else. He was literally eating out of her hand on the first visit (wld not have believed it had there not been pics, he really is so shy!) Kimberly was an excellent communicator and sent amazing photographs. We are very nervous parents and we were completely at ease after the first update. The kitties were completely calm and normal when we came back - no adjustment time and no surprise piles of throw up from nervousness. We wld happily work w Kim again! 10 out of 5 stars! Thank you!! 🖤🖤🖤

Kimberly beat several other competitors right off the bat simply by being the fastest to respond to my initial message. A prompt reply is always a good sign in itself but she went above and beyond from first meeting to final visit. We verified visitation dates and availability before booking and on the day of meeting she arrived on time for the scheduled meet at greet with my cats. I was definitely a disorganized mess running on a solid 3 hours of sleep and preparing for a last minute flight. No issue for Kimberly! She ensured she didn't miss any details from me on feeding schedules, water bowl locations, litter box locations, favorite toys, applicable special needs, and which foods to provide at which times to which cat. My male cat tends to harass my other cat if left unsupervised for too long, Kimberly sent frequent updates assuring all was well, and sending some fun action pics of play time with their favorite toys. I came home from a stressful flight to find all of their used bowls/plates washed and ready to put away! A pleasant surprise indeed, one less thing on my plate at the end of a long day! I would recommend Kimberly to anyone who wants reliable service and attentive care to their fur babies while they're away.

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.
