Learn More About Laurissa

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy the opportunity to connect with different cats, each with their own unique personalities and quirks. It's fulfilling to provide them with love, care, and attention, knowing that I'm helping them feel comfortable and happy while their owners are away.

Are you usually available during holidays?

Yes, I am usually available during holidays. I understand that holiday periods can be a popular time for travel, and I strive to provide reliable and caring cat sitting services during these times.

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

For timid or anxious cats, I approach them with patience and understanding, allowing them to adjust to my presence at their own pace. I create a calm environment, minimizing loud noises and sudden movements. I use gentle, reassuring tones and movements to help them feel more comfortable. I also provide hiding spots and high perches where they can retreat if they feel overwhelmed. Slowly building trust through positive interactions, such as offering treats or engaging in quiet play, can help them feel more at ease.

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 $34.00. 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.
