I'm Janelle | Cat Sitting in Columbus, OH
Hello! My name is Janelle, and I am a cat mom to two special-needs loveable furballs. I’d love to give your cats the special treatment too!! I’ve been owned by cats most of my adult life. Currently I live with Cleo, my senior queen with diabetes and CKD who is allergic to almost everything, and Zorro, my 6-year-old blind wild child. Both of them require special medications and diets, and I would love to care for your cats the way I’ve cared for them over the years! I’ve also volunteered at SaveAGato in Puerto Rico and worked with my neighbors to help feed, care for, and trap local strays in Clintonville. I have been with Meowtel for about a year now, and I love meeting new friends! I have found that my specialty is sitting and waiting patiently for shy kitties to warm up to me and trying other tricks to get them to come out of hiding. I also have experience with giving various types of cat medications, including insulin or other types of injections, special foods/diets, eyedrops, inhalers, ear drops, pills, and more! I have been double-vaxxed and boosted, and I am definitely able to follow whatever COVID protocols you might have in place at you...
Janelle went above and beyond taking care of our cats who had some high-maintenance requirements. She sent plenty of pictures and updates. Perfect!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $27.00.
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.
