I can also care of any household things you may need doing while you're away (watering plants, feeding fish, bringing in mail, etc.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What is my cat sitting philosophy? My cat sitting is based on my love for cats. I love cats in every color, breed, and personality out there. I want your cat to feel loved and social even when you're away, and I connect with every cat I meet in the way they feel comfortable. I love playing with cats, petting cats, and even just sitting with them.

Lara is amazing! Very attentive care when she visits. My kitties get lots of play time and attention and I couldn't be happier to know they are well taken care of. I really appreciate her detailed updates during the visit. And she gets the cutest photos. I'm so thankful for Lara.

Lara is a great cat sitter! She is kind and sweet and my shy kitties love her. I know this because I get the most adorable pictures and videos of them playing and enjoying themselves. And lways accompanied by a detailed notes about the visit. When I have to be away from my cats, it's very comforting to receive such information. Puts my worries at ease. Highly recommend!

Lara did an amazing job! I have two kittens who are a bit scared of new people. But first visit Lara was able to get them both out playing, eating, and even for a pet! Lara sent pictures and videos of the kittens each time she visited and a synopsis of each cat to let me know they were doing well. I have already booked Lara again for a weekend I will be away. I highly recommend her!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
