Learn More About Mina

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Cat-sitting allows me to offer a service to others while expanding my knowledge of pets I WANT TO SERVE my entire life. The cat stories you have shared always enthrall me; I love learning about their backgrounds. Knowing their history makes them more likable! I get so excited to know it's okay to cuddle them. The only thing I love more than cats is providing pet owners with peace, safety, and comfort while you are away. I want to assure you that your cat(s) are with loving, caring, and respectful hands. I love every single cat as my own.

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

I will respect your cats’ emotions. Cats have every right to feel timid or anxious when meeting a new person. I prefer that cats approach me first. I facilitate that process by giving them space and time. During that process, I bend or sit on the floor and let the cat(s) sniff me. If they permit me, I will pet them. I have a knack for getting shy cats out of their shell. However, if your cat(s) prefer to keep their distance, I will let them observe me as I continue with other reservation tasks. If your cat is extremely timid, I still show them love by leaving 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.

Mina is fantastic! She deserves more than 5 stars. Everything was perfect including an extra session because my return flight got cancelled last minute! My cat loved Mina. From the videos and photos I could see that my cat loved her!

Mina went above and beyond to take care of our kitties while we were away! She dealt with one of our spicy girls and was very respectful of her boundaries. I would definitely recommend Mina as your next cat sitter! She is very professional.

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.
