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

When I was younger, I used to cat-sit for my family. My aunts have had cats for as long as I can remember, as well as my dad for a while. I was the one people asked for when they went on vacation and I was only too happy to accommodate! I'll be celebrating 2 years with Meowtel in July 2024! This whole experience has been really enjoyable. I feel safe and supported, and like I can really focus on the cats I sit for, knowing how well prepared I am for it.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I know this feels obvious, but the cats! When you reserve me, you will probably get too many pictures and videos of your little ones. They are so precious :) - I love playing with them of course, but my absolute favorite is when they trust me enough to let me give them pets and scratches and bellyrubs!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I've had a few similar experiences, but my favorites are when a skittish cat, who rarely comes out for strangers, warms up to me and feels safe enough to approach me and get pets! There's no greater feeling than winning over a precious shy kitty! This doesn't always happen, but when it does, it's magic!

Joy did an amazing job taking care of my two cats while I way away. She went above and beyond, and I will definitely hire her for the future.

Once again, Joy went above and beyond caring for my two babies, one of whom has been a little sick lately. They have completely accepted her as one of their trusted people - even my scrappy cat lets her pick him up! she’s wonderful at updating me with all their antics and keeps an extra eye on my little old man, giving me as much peace of mind as possible when I’m away. 10000/10!!!

Everything went smoothly, from reservation to the end. Joy was a big help! She managed to charm my shy and grumpy cat and was able to make her show her gentle and sweet side. I can certainly trusy Joy with my 15-year little girl! My cat is deaf but I am sure she can hear the song of joy from Joy! The daily photos and videos made me feel like I never left home.

This is our second booking with Joy. In short, she’s amazing! Incredibly detail oriented, extremely reliable, and amazing with our two cats. She is always successful at getting our shy kitties to come out of their shells and to open up, which has had an incredibly positive impact on their development and ability to interact with us and our friend and family. We can’t imagine trusting anyone other than Joy to care for our kitties while we’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 $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.
