I'm Melissa | Cat Sitting in Columbus, OH

I love cats and would be the perfect cat sitter for you and your fur babies because I've always had a pet in my home since the age of 5. Yes, my first pet was a dog and I do love them, but a cat fit in my lap much easier! All of my cats throughout my life have either been feral or from a shelter/foster situation. I love to take them from a not the best situation into my loving home, and spoil them a bit! My last cat I had before my current 4, had diabetes and was required to have insulin twice a day, so I am comfortable administering medication via needles, if needed. I currently have 5 cats that once again are from a local foster. The 2 oldest are sisters & have a year younger brother. The 4th is from a local lady who needed to remove her. And my 5th from the same rescue as my first 3. I just love how comforting cats are and no matter how you're feeling, they are always there to give you love and I want to be the one there for your cat when you can't be! I am currently a stay-at-home mom, small business owne...

Melissa's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Melissa did a wonderful job watching our three cats. She handled our ornery girl who decided this was a great time to find a new hiding spot and was able to get our shy guy to come out for cuddles. We would highly recommend Melissa and will definitely be using her in the future!

This was the first time I worked with Melissa. She looked after my cat for four days. She was able to get through to and calm my fearful and defensive cat. She did the rather complex set of tasks involved when I was gone and did them well. She was personable and easy to work with. She was responsive to my questions throughout the whole time. I would definitely recommend her.

Melissa was a great petsitter and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new one! She was able to take care of my two cats that have different social needs. The daily updates and pictures with every visit were fun to look forward to.

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations.

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.
