Meow! I'm Deanna, a Cat Sitter in , OR
Hello! My name is Deanna, and ever since I was a small child, I knew that I would grow up to work with animals. Having pets of my own at a very young age (including cats, dogs, hamsters, chickens and a box turtle), I independently provided care for all of their needs. The current rulers of my home are my beloved fur babies, Mowgli & Marley (the gorgeous orange kitties posted above). They live such a pampered life that family and friends often joke about wanting to live as a cat in my home! As an adult, my dream job became a reality while working for a local veterinary hospital, first as a receptionist, and later as a licensed veterinary technician. Working at a busy small animal hospital has given me insight and experience connecting with, and caring for, a variety of cat dispositions, temperaments and personalities. I have since retired from the hospital, but will never retire from loving animals! I keep my technician license current and attend continuing education seminars on a regular basis. Being 'retired' gives me the freedom, time and flexibility to provide exceptional care for your beloved furry friends. My love for all things feline, as well as my compassion and experience, will allow me to provide the extra special tender loving care your kitties deserve, as well as any medical or special attention that they may need. My sitting style is to let your cat dictate what we do, I appreciate and respect each kitties uniqueness. If they want to play, we'll play...
Deanna was patient, warm and so engaging with my very shy kitty. After just a day she had my cat comfortably eating out of her hand and playing. I was very nervous to leave my cat, but Deanna sent wonderful updates, photos and videos and made my cat (and me) so comfortable.
With 3 cats and wanting 2x ***** 20 minutes I have to remove one cat from my profile, book the times then add the 3rd cat back. However the ***** support is excellent in navigating this caveat.
Thank you so much for the short notice reservation! It was a huge relief having one less thing to worry about while facing possible flight delays and cancellations! PS. Our cats miss you and are bored with us already :-)
Thank you so much for taking such good care of our boys while we were away! They were both so happy and so calm when we got home which is a testament to your great care. You have no idea what a relief it was to know that you had cats of your own and would instinctually know so many of the nuances and demands of the kittys! We have several trips in mind for 2023 and we would love to have you care for them again. We will contact Meowtel and ask for you!
Deanna was great with our kitty, Joey. She readily bonded with him and spent time playing with him. While we were on vacation, Deanna contacted us regularly with updates and sent pictures showing us everything was okay with the house and that Joey was doing well. Thanks, Deanna!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.
Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
