Learn More About Mina

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Cat-sitting lets me serve others and deepen my lifelong passion for felines. Each cat's story fascinates me, and learning about their backgrounds makes them even more endearing. Ensuring their comfort and safety brings me joy, so I treat every cat with love and respect like they're my own.

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

For new cat parents, let us arrange a meeting in a public space near you for convenience. I prioritize face-to-face interaction to discuss and understand your cat's specific needs in detail. This ensures we establish a comfortable and trusting relationship from the start.

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

Your cats' comfort is my priority. I specialize in comforting shy cats, respecting their emotions, and letting them initiate contact. I adapt by sitting or bending down for them to approach and sniff. If they prefer distance, I proceed with tasks while allowing them to observe. For very timid cats, I show affection with a pet-owner-approved treat.

Mina always does a great job taking care of our 4 fur babies. While we were on vacation, one of my senior kitties (17 years old) had a medical issue. Mina was great and took my boy to Veterinary Emergency Group to receive care and communicated with me frequently. I highly recommend booking with Mina. You will be very happy!

Mina did a fantastic job of medicating (pilling) my almost 17 year old male kitty. He gets 4 pills every night and is not a fan of getting pilled. Mina was gentle and patient with my boy and made it a wonderful experience for him. She sent me photos and videos so I could see how well he was doing after the medicine. I will definitely use Mina again and recommend her highly.

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.
