I'm Aryka | Cat Sitting in Portland, OR

Hi! My name is Aryka (pronounced like Erica, I use she/her pronouns) and I cant wait to meet you and your cats! I currently have two cats, Smoresoles and Reptar. I've had Smoresoles for 13 years and raised her from a tiny kitten. She has some health issues, so I have a lot of experience with administering medications such as topicals, pills, and liquids. Reptar came along with my husband and has made a joyous addition. He's a shy guy who just wants some under-the-collar scratches and to yell a little sometimes. I have a lot of experience cat sitting for friends and family and all types of pets. I love getting to know every cat's unique personality and seeing what gets them excited and engaged. I've cared for cats of all temperaments, from shy under-the-bed-hiders ...

Aryka's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Aryka is very reliable, sends concise reports with pictures after ever visit with just the information you'd be wondering about. Very comforting to know she's on the job!

Aryka is amazing! She arrived during the timeframe we discussed, she immediately sent me messages detailing what she did and pictures showing the food out, the clean litter box and Bailey in her hiding spot (super shy girl!). Knowing Bailey was so well taken care of enabled me to have a worry free trip. Looking forward to using Aryka on my next trip. Much thanks!! :)

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

The average price for a cat sitter is $30.00.

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.
