I'm Kat | Cat Sitting in Eugene, OR

10% discount for new clients (applied automatically)! I'm Kat, a Certified Feline Training & Behavior Specialist (CFTBS) who loves spending time with cats so much that I decided to do it for a living! I currently have four of my own, and I volunteer as a foster parent for a local cat rescue. I know how stressful it can be to trust a stranger with your cats, and I love having the opportunity to help my clients have peace of mind so they can enjoy their trips without worrying about how things are going at home. I always provide multiple pictures and videos as well as a detailed account of how each visit goes, so you can feel comfortable knowing your kitties are in good hands. I’ve had multiple cats with medical issues, so I am experienced giving medication to non-aggressive cats orally, topically, and via injection if the cat is used to them. I’ve always gravitated toward cats, and I love how you have to earn their trust and respect. Behaviorally, my approach is research-based, using shaping and positive reinforcement to help cats be happy and get their needs met in ways that are acceptable to...

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

I've been cat sitting full time since June 2022.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

In addition to building connections with cool cats, I love giving people peace of mind that their kitties will be well taken care of under my care. It can be stressful trusting a stranger with your cats and your home, and I aim to help my clients feel confident that their cats' needs will be met AND they'll get comprehensive updates and pictures after each visit. I also love the variety of getting to know different people, cats, and places, and maintaining my (often chaotic) calendar is actually really fun to me!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

We have 4 senior girls: Khaleesi, Jadzia, Saffron, & Sriracha. We usually have a rolling rotation of foster cats as well. At one point, we fostered a litter of 6 kittens, so we had TEN cats in our house! Jadzia is great at showing the new cats the ropes, but our other girls are merely tolerant of them.

This was our first time using Kat and we were totally thrilled with her level of service and caring. She responded quickly to any messages we sent her. She went above and beyond in taking care of our boy Calvin who is a shy and skittish cat. Just one day after meeting our 2 cats in a pleasant and professional meet and greet, our old boy Burtrum, passed away, leaving Calvin as our now only cat. He has always had a companion and we were worried about leaving on our trip with him mourning his brother. Kat took the time to give him the love and attention that actually brought him out of his shell. We really appreciate the sympathy cards and flowers sent to us when she found out about our cat passing away. She sent timely updates about Calvin with lots of beautiful pictures and videos that we looked forward to getting each day. She really put us at ease. We were happy to see our boy doing so well in her care. Kat is awesome and is our “go to”, from now on for all our kitty sitting needs.

First time using Kat. She was extremely detail oriented, took notes on our meet and greet. She took fantastic photos and video of my kitty. Quick responses and great communication. I will definitely use her again.

This is the second time Kat has taken care of my elderly kitty. Willa is shy, but Kat takes the time to really connect with her.

The Meowtel Promise & Satisfaction Guarantee

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations. For reservations where each visit is at or above $20 and paid for through Meowtel, your cat(s) will automatically be covered under our insurance policy in the event that things don't go as planned.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $30.00. 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.
