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 6, had diabetes and was required to have insulin twice a day, so I am comfortable administering medication via needles, if needed. I currently have 6 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 rehome her. And my 5th from the same rescue as the other 3. My 6th is a foster fail, but I just had to keep her and love her so much! 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 mo...

Learn More About Melissa

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

I have had good experiences with cat sitting. Cats seem to like me, even when they are shy or timid. I have been officially cat sitting with Meowtel since December of 2022, but have babysat dogs and cats off and on for several years.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to spend time with the fur babies and get extra love from them.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I sure do, I have 6! Their names are Margarita, Tequila, Jack, Bailey, Whiskey and Fireball Finch. They are better known on IG as the Adult Beverage Cats!

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!

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.
