Meow! I'm Janelle, a Cat Sitter in , 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 several months, 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 food...

When I met Janelle I liked her immediately and felt more comfortable with her checking in on Zoi. 😻. She really tried to engage with Xoi and I appreciated that. 😊

Janelle is awesome. My cat immediately loved her, and she took such good care of him and sent really nice updates and photos while we were away. Very highly recommend!!

Janelle was wonderful with my Sid. He had some vomiting issues and she was excellent at getting him to eat and drink. I was very impressed with how well she kept me updated as well as sending me photos. I felt comfortable being away.

Janelle was amazing - first time we've felt comfortable leaving our boys in somebody else's hands in a long time. Always sent detailed updates of both boys along with pictures/videos.

Janelle was wonderful with our cat, she’s taken care of her before and we know we’d love to ask her again. Our cat really likes Janelle too.

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.
