I'm Barbara | Cat Sitting in Portland, OR

I am a cat magnet. My two kitties, Spoozie and Sylvie, are rescues who came home 9 months apart, and after 6 years together are bonded sisters. They love when I come home from other cat households, so many glorious scents to check out. I have been trading cat care with neighbors and family for years, and now that I'm self-employed/retired, the time is right to expand my services. It's so important to find the right person for our precious kitties, and meeting in person is the best way to determine if we might be right for each ot...

Barbara was the ideal sitter for my shy friend. She was responsive, kind & caring and provided lots of photos and updates. I never had any doubt that my cat and home were in good hands. Highly recommended!

Miracle

Barbara really loves hanging out with cats and taking good care of them! My cat Odin vociferously welcomed Barbara's presence in our home whenever he saw Barbara arriving on the back street walking seeing from the window sill, he also begged for play time with new toys (lately the stick game), and reciprocated with his paws. Barbara is very thoughtful, loving, caring, and attentive, Odin still missed us being away but still liked hanging out with Barbara not just for water and food but also for emotional connection.

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.
