I'm Melissa | Cat Sitting in Xenia, OH

Hello! My name is Melissa & I have been in love with cats since before I can remember. I have extensive experience with cats including: running my own cat rescue & finding homes for over 300 cats since 2016, helping special needs cats (deaf, blind, diabetic, daily medications, missing limbs, etc.), many vet visits for routine care & surgeries, as well as jobs with big cat rescues/zoos! I always had multiple cats while growing up & helped my mom clean, feed & care for them- which was my foundation for empathy, respect & compassion for our feline friends as a child. At age 16, my first true love was a stray cat I found on the bike path, peddled home awkwardly with for miles & with whom I spent 14 unforgettable years! I promise to provid...

I love meeting other furry friends and making sure they are comfortable, happy, safe and have a clean environment.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I have cat sit for family, friends, and those individuals whom I've adopted cats to. Probably Big Ricky was my favorite with him staying with me again after being home for 2yrs! He was so sweet getting to know again for the 2 weeks I had him!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $26.00. 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.
