I'm Alex | Cat Sitting in Eugene, OR

I love cats and they unconditionally love me as long as they get what they want. I do know what is unhealthy for them (aka too many treats) but I maintain a middle way depending on what the owners want. Cats and I seem to attract each other. That's been true since I was a child living on a farm in Maine. Here's one recent example: I had stray 8 cats come to my porch in Meadville, Pennsylvania during the four years I lived there. They were all welcome including a mother cat who brought her 3 3 week old kittens across the street to live with me. They had heated shelters and plenty of food. They finally went to fostering six months later and were adopted quickly. I pay attention to the needs of both the cats and their owners. I am pretty good with the language of cats and know when they are distressed, happy, or res...

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

I have cared for stray and feral cats for many years. I lived in a small Pennsylvania city the last four years and had a small house with a porch. The cats in the neighborhood knew there was food and shelter every day. I had heated shelters and plenty of food year round. A mother cat brought her kittens over when they were about 1 month old. They all stayed on my porch for 5 months until I was able to get them into fostering and adoption. I also cat-sat for people in my neighborhood on a regular basis. In one way, I've cat sat all my life.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Taking care of someone else's cat(s) is a great joy to me because the owner doesn't have to worry about their animal companions when I'm on the job. I especially enjoy meeting new cats...all of whom have unique personalities and demands.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My most recent one involved taking care of a cat whose owner was away for the holidays. Every day at 9 am I would arrive to feed, clean, and play. The cat wasn't sure about me at first but later left her window to play and be brushed. The owner was very satisfied with my work and he got pictures every day.

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.
