I'm Claire | Cat Sitting in Portland, OR

Hi, I'm Claire (they/she)! I'm relatively new to Portland and I've cared for so many sweet kitties here already! I believe that every cat has their own special personality and quirks that make them unique. Earning a cat's trust is so important in creating a solid bond. I am skilled at helping shy kitties warm up to me and feel comfortable. I also am happy to give more social cats all the pets and cuddles they crave. I know it can be stressful to leave your kitty behind when you go out of town and I'm here to ease those worries! I will happily send photo and/or video updates and texts while your cat is in my care. Cats have been a part of my life since I was in elementary school. My parents taught me to care for my two cats when I was very young and I've carried those skills into adulthood. One of those kitties, Jasmine, lived with me for her final years during and after college. She had kidney disease and was on a veterinary diet. She was the most amazing companion animal. There is a special place in my hear...

Learn More About Claire

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love gaining the trust of shy cats, and even watching more outgoing cats become more comfortable with me is a treat! It's so important to me that they feel comfortable while their paw-rents are out of town because I know that can be stressful for kitties. I give them lots of love, treats and playtime.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have a senior calico kitty named Anita! When I fostered her, her name was Anita Nutha Cat and that name stuck! My roommate has a fluffy black cat named Marceline who thinks I'm her pawrent too.

What is your favorite cat toy?

I love wand toys! Most cats I work with really love them (including my own) and it's a classic toy that they never get tired of.

Claire accepted a last minute sit request and handled everything while we were gone. We will certainly use her again.

Claire is the Mary Poppins of cat care. She is extremely adept at handling medication administration to a very resistent cat, as well as charming my highly territorial lady. I have greatly appreciated the photo and update quality, and overall find her exceptionally easy to work with, both patient and respectful. We travel frequently and for long stints, I will not hesitate to book her for every kind of getaway - - knowing my cats are well cared for and getting my daily dose of pictures puts me much at ease!!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
