I'm Ryan | Cat Sitting in Portland, OR

Hi, I’m Ryan (she/her) and I love cats so much and truly believe that they are the most precious creatures on Earth. ♥️ I always had cats growing up, and currently have two boys from the same litter - my family actually adopted the entire litter together! My cats are the loves of my life and I strive to give them the best lives possible. I wanted to become a cat sitter because I find joy in caring for cats and giving them all of the love that they deserve. As a fellow cat owner, I understand the stress that comes with having to leave your babies with someone. I am committed to giving them all of the loving pets and affirmations they want while they wait for their wonderful parent(s) to return. I was a veterinary technician for several years and always had a special place in my heart for the cats. I’m naturally good at reading cat language and have taken care of all temperaments regarding kitty person...

Learn More About Ryan

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

My favorite aspect of cat sitting is developing a relationship with the cats. I love learning their personalities, quirks, favorite toys and treats, etc. I value animals as highly as I do people, so getting to visit a cat feels like hanging out with a good friend.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

Anxious cats are my personal specialty ♥️Often, an anxious cat doesn’t know if they can trust you with their safety, and their prey instincts kick in. So in order to show them that I am a friend, not a fiend, I will talk very quietly and gently to them. I will be very aware to not make any sudden sounds or movements, and always let them come to me. Once they feel comfortable I will pet them, continue talking to them, and eventually they will begin to feel safe. One of my favorite clients is a very anxious boy, and he is now so social and loving with me and I melt every time I see him ♥️

Ryan is the best, she makes leaving our cats so much easier. The cats love her, I don't know how she gets both of our cats cuddling, but they're obviously happy to see her.

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.
