I'm Rin | Cat Sitting in Portland, OR

Please reach out through messages if you’d like me to sit for you through Meowtel and if I am a good fit I will open my schedule for you to book your dates. Hi! I’m a lifetime cat lover who has owned a few cats and fostered a plethora of them as an adult. As a child, my family always had cats, along with a few found litters over the years. I currently have two wonderful cats - Podcast is a black and white three-legged wonder, and Oslo is a chatty, engaging lynx point.

I am a veterinary technician with nearly 20 years of experience, mostly in ER, Urgent Care, and some time in general practice.

Attention to Detail

Rin provided such great care for my kitties while I was away for the Thanksgiving holiday! I’m so grateful, and I know my cats were, too. :)

Rin made fast new friends with our cats. Was loving and respectful of their needs. And kept our place clean and orderly! What I especially appreciate about Rin is the fast and effective communication in updates and responses. Supreme cat sitter!

Rin was super friendly and kept in great communications which helped reassuring me that my cats are in good hands. I really appreciated Rin’s knowledge and capability to help one of my cats with her ear medication. Highly recommend Rin!

Rin truly went above & beyond for our girls. From changing her work schedule around to accommodate my cat’s insulin schedule, to being willing to help evacuate the cats to safety because a wildfire sprung up overnight less than 5 miles from our home— she is a real life superhero!

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.
