Meow! I'm Gretchen, a Cat Sitter in , OH

My name is Gretchen and although I've only been a cat parent myself for about 7 years, I've always loved cats. As a kid when my parents didn't want to adopt a cat, I befriended a neighbor's outdoor cat, who began to come by and hang out with me on the porch every single day. All of my friends are cat-lovers, and I've become the go-to sitter among my friend group. I'm responsible and have so much fun hanging out with animals. I love sending cute photos and videos to the pet parents to make them smile while they're away, and assure them that their pets are in the best hands. Full time, I work AV for live even...

Gretchen did an amazing job with our two cats, especially helping out with a last-minute food change & medical needs. She made sure both cats got their correct food and also gave extra to our neighborhood strays. Highly recommend!!

Gretchen was a wonderful cat sitter! She sent us pictures every evening and even brought in our mail and rinsed the cats’ dishes. Excellent cat sitter!

Gretchen was so sweet to our elderly kittie. She took time with him each day and sent us pics that made us miss him.

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.
