Hey there! I'm Melanie, aka Auntie Mellie! I have been petsitting professionally since 2016 - dogs, cats, guinea pigs, fish and more! I was raised with pets always in the home. I don't know what a life without pets looks like, nor do I want to find out. Pets bring us so much joy, they are truly little furry antidepressants ;) I do have one cat of my own, Spidey Cat. He casts a web of cuteness so it was the perfect name for this feral rescue. My experience with cats includes feeding, medication administration, play time, nutrition, and lots of cuddles of course. I've cared for indoor cats, indoor/outdoor cats, and even ferals. I recently made an insulated kitty house that sits on my porch in the winter.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $26.00.

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.
