I'm Svetlana | Cat Sitting in Wayne, NJ

I recently graduated with a degree in Physics and am currently working as a part-time tutor. To supplement my income and indulge in my favorite activity, I am offering cat care services. My love for cats and their care is evident through my volunteering at the Homeless Animal Adoption League since 2018 (you can find me there on Sundays!). This is an all cat shelter, where each feline member gets to runs around every day whenever we clean the cages. I also take care of Monday morning medicine shift at the shelter. I give insulin shots to one of our cats, and multiple other medicines, craftily encased in Churu bites or given directly in the mouth. I love to socialize less confident cats at the shelter and give them lots of love and play time when I am there. Additio...

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

I will come to your house to do a meet and greet. I will ensure that I know where everything is located, the feeding routine and any quirks that might help me make friends with your cat. I'll need to know where the litter boxes are, the water bowls, the garbage, the plates and spoons, the toys and any hiding spots if your little one is a scaredy one. I won't be pushy with your cat when I come, we will have a plenty of time to get acquainted when you are away.

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

My cats are escape artists so I have a body memory of how to open the door making sure that nobody sneaked in. I also obsessively check and cross check everything that I do, and I will triple check if I locked everything and all the cats are accounted for before I leave.

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

Very slowly and gently. Sometimes I just have to sit and talk to them, slowly blinking, till they are comfortable enough to let me pet them. It's usually easier from there. I know how to respect their boundaries if they give me a bite or a scratch, and I am not afraid of scratches and bites.

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 $33.00. 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.
