10% discount for new clients! Use this code at checkout: XTYCRIQS 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 humans...

Learn More About Kat

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.

Kat took such good care of my cats, playing with them and giving lots of snuggles and head scratches. She is a great cat photographer as well.

We never have to worry with Kat, she always does an amazing job! It's such a relief to know our kitty is well taken care of. Kat is very kind and reliable and she goes above and beyond. I can't recommend her enough!

Our first interaction with Kat was very pleasant, and we'd enjoy having her kitty sit for us the next time we're away. She's very responsive, communicates clearly, and is detail oriented so the house looked great when we returned. We recommend her highly!

After meeting Kat, we felt very comfortable having her cat sit our two kitties, and she didn’t disappoint! She managed to connect with our somewhat skeptical kitty and engage our shy one, capturing their playful times with pictures and videos and sharing her daily experience through Meowtel chat. Thank you, Kat!

Kat is great with our older kitties. We've asked her not to search for our shy kitty as that stresses the kitty out and she has dobe as asked. Kat is also great at taking detailed directions and giving our eldest cat a pill each time. She's clean and kind and we love working 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 $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.
