Meow! I'm Irene, a Cat Sitter in , NV
I have a deep love and appreciation for all animals, but can't deny a lifelong affinity especially for those of the feline persuasion, from the very beginning having had an older kitty "sibling" (ultimately my ONLY sibling) that lived to be 18 years old and many kitty kids since then. I love the dichotomy you find with cats in their possessing an independent nature with minds of their own while at the same time the desire to give and receive love and affection if they have your trust. They have such individual personalities and I love their purr...it is so calming and therapeutic. I am also drawn to their similarities to their larger, wild counterparts. I currently am a cat mom to 6 cats ranging in age from 6-17. All are rescues (including 2 former ferals and 2 former strays that literally adopted ME) and are the joys of my life. Two have special needs. I have experience hand raising kittens, providing palliative care for chronically/terminally ill cats, managing cats prone to constipation and litter box aversion/mishaps, elder cat care and insulin administration to diabetic cats. I would love the opportunity to be able to provide your feline fur baby/ies with the same loving care I do my own during your time away from home. I understand deeply how important it is to be able to leave home for a period of time with the peace of mind knowing that your kitties will receive the loving care they deserve during your absence and how preferable it is for them to be able to remain in the environment they are most familiar with and feel safest in. Rest assured I will provide the absolute highest level of care during my time with your furry family member(s), regardless of how long or short our visits are. Cat sitting is not merely a side gig for me with my availability dictated by ot...
Awesome sitter. Irene sent me pics which was so cool and took great care of my critters
Six stars. Irene is the best cat sitter I have ever worked with! She paid close attention to our two cats. One is very outgoing and one is very shy, and I could tell that she spent a lot of time trying to draw our shy one out. Her updates were comprehensive with a lot of attention to detail to our cats and our home. Thank you so much Irene!
Irene was incredible! I made the reservation about six weeks in advance. She immediately scheduled a time to drop by and meet Mayhem and me. She was extremely punctual and, going forward, always replied to any texts that I sent her immediately. It was that responsiveness that made me feel secure enough to entrust her with our cat and home. Afterward, she reached out again, as she said she would, to pick up the key to my house. Irene came every day for four days, and every day I received a bunch of pictures of my cat, who was cuddling with her. In addition, she would text me and let me know how he was doing (Also, since we were in an area with poor wifi, Irene also offered to ***** us, along with text us every day.). I was extremely pleased with all the attention she gave Mayhem, and we could tell when we got home that he was content too. Normally he meows and complains when we get home, and it's very clear that he's not happy that he was left alone. But this time, he didn't do that. So I attribute that to Irene and all her tender loving care. Lastly, a beautiful handwritten letter was waiting for us when we came home, along with a magnet that stated that Mayhem had made Honor Roll because he was a good boy while we were gone too. All in all, it was a great experience, and I will definitely be using Irene again in the future!
Irene does an amazing job! Her daily reports are detailed and thoughtful. I will be requesting her again on my next vacation and you should too!
This is the third time we’ve used Irene and she was just as wonderful as the first and second time! She’s now our go-to cat sitter! Thank you Irene for your attention to detail and the love you give our kitties. :)

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $26.00.
Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
