I'm Elaine | Cat Sitting in Columbus, OH

I grew up with pets - cats specifically - my entire life. I currently have just 2 cats, but both have special needs/health issues. Over the years I have particularly sought out abandoned cats in need. Cats with disabilities. Cats who are shy or need special care. I have a love of all felines and am patient with them knowing that each has their own unique personality. With time and love you get to see the real inner personality of each cat. I have had several special needs cats in particular the last 20 years. Ones that have required medications or special care. I am comfortable giving all types of medication (pills, liquids, eye drops, ear drops & cleaning, as well as injections) as my special needs cats...

Learn More About Elaine

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

Cat sitting is highly enjoyable. I love meeting new furry friends and nothing brings me more joy than when a more reserved cat begins to come out of their shell. I also have a blast with the outgoing cats and everything in between. I have been doing this since 2000 in varying degrees of frequency. It started off as favors for family or friends and has grown.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Meeting all the great different personalities out there. Learning how to meet each cat where the are comfortable being.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I think my favorite was when I had a cat that I was told really didn't like anyone and to be careful in case they didn't want to interact with me in a positive manner. I walked in calmly but not pushy with either of the two cats, and the one I was warned about came up and greeted me like I was an old friend. I have worked with a lot of shy cats and I do love it when I can get them to come out of their shell or trust me somewhat, but this was different in that the cat really doesn't take well to many people and yet could sense that I was a safe person.

Elaine's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Elaine was patient and responsive to our cats needs. She gets very anxious and afraid when we’re away and Elaine recognized her discomfort and did what she could to take care of Sprinkles. We appreciated Elaine’s updates and visits to try and make our cat feel safe. Thank you Elaine!

Elaine was absolutely AMAZING with our fur babies! we were very worried about leaving our 3 month kitten and our very shy and anxious adult cat but Elaine made it so easy. Our cats instantly trusted and accepted her. They played with her and she was extremely gentle with them. We highly recommend Elaine - she is now our go to cat sitter!

Elaine is amazing!! She really is a cat whisperer. Our cat is normally nervous around new people but Elaine was so wonderful and calming with her. She has had many cats and is clearly very comfortable and skilled with giving medication and injections because she has had no trouble giving our nervous kitty fluids. I could not be comfortable leaving my baby (yes I’m one of those people!) in her care.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $27.00. 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.
