I'm Amy | Cat Sitting in Portland, OR

I first fell in love with a cat at 8 years old. He was a family friend named Zorro and for some reason he decided to follow all of my instructions to jump on and off of things, I guess because he liked my reactions, because he did not do this for anyone else. Cats. I have loved many many cats since, and my friends can tell you about all of them in excruciating detail. If you're wondering, none of my other cat friends reliably (or sometimes ever) follow my instructions, but they are all perfect. I started cat sitting about 10 years ago, first for friends and friends of friends, and later moving on to a more app-based lifestyle. I've cared for kittens, senior kitties with special medical needs, cuddle buddies, cat-letes who require regular wand toy exercise, very shy kitties who want to come out of their shells and be besties, and very shy kitties who prefer their space. My medication experience includes betray...

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I just love getting to know so many different cats! I love all of my cat friends. They are silly kids and reliably make me laugh. And the cuteness! They all deserve the best and it makes me feel good to give it to them. My favorite is when I earn the trust of a shy kitty because the trust of a cat is special - they don't give it to just anyone, and sometimes it can take a long time to earn. And the reward is so soft, both literally and metaphorically.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Oh great, an opportunity to tell you more about Bumblebee! Like I said earlier, Bumblebee refuses to let me have other cats. She hates other cats so much she literally throws herself against the window when she sees one outside. And then I have to pick her up and remove her from the Situation so she doesn't hurt herself, and she yowls and hisses but doesn't even attack me a little bit, even though she hates being picked up. That's what a good girl she is. Another thing she refuses to do is pay rent. I love her so much.

Amy was a great caretaker of the kitties. She provided great updates, and took care to try to bond with them. She fed and watered them as requested. I would hire Amy again!

My friendly kitty absolutely fell in love with her and she sent the most adorable photos and videos, including loud purrs. Everything was neat and clean upon my return and they still had lots of food. Definitely a cat charmer!

Amy does an incredibly great job at cat sitting. Our kitties got lots of play and our kitty Batman got his meds without issues. Amy is a cat whisperer as well, befriending our kitty Bruce (not very social) and getting him to play.

Amy was amazing with our three kitties. She was easy to reach and immediately responsive. She quickly befriended all three kitties, including our most skeptical boy. And she takes the best pics and videos! We enjoyed our time away knowing our babies were well cared for. We have found our new kitty sitter. Thank you Amy!

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 $33.00. 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.
