Learn More About Joy

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's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Joy has become our go-to cat sitter. She is detail oriented, our cats love her and she sends amazing updates while we’re away. Couldn’t recommend her more highly!

As usual Joy went above & beyond! She even stayed late to make sure Reilly was ok. It is such a great feeling knowing that our little guy is in such good hands!

Joy was kind enough to accommodate me last minute after I had a death in the family and had to leave the city. It gave me some peace of mind leaving my cat with her again.

Joy was amazing with my girls. She took lots of notes at the meet and great and even charmed my shy girl. I really looked forward to her pictures and videos she sent, and I enjoyed my trip so much more knowing my girls were being taken such good care of. Will definitely use Joy again for future trips and recommend her to anyone who is nervous about leaving their babies

Joy is the best! From the pre-trip visit, thorough to-do list and attention to detail and consistent updates she made taking a trip away from our kitties so much less stressful! Highly recommend.

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 $31.00. 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.
