I'm Ryleigh | Cat Sitting in Portland, OR

Born & raised in Portland, OR I am a huge pet lover! I just returned from studying abroad in Berlin & I have studied 2 previous years at Columbia College Chicago where I specialized in Experimental Photography! When I was young, probably around 14, I began taking care of pets in my area. Word of mouth from quality care spread to more and more pet care gigs. I watched cats, dogs, turtles, hamsters, birds, and even once... hissing cockroaches. I grew up in a home with usually 3 dogs at a time, it was wonderful, they all hold a special place in my heart. When I moved from home for college, there was nothing I missed more than my beloved pets. That's when I discovered, applied for, and obtained my ...

Ryleigh's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Ryleigh saved me and my cat Aelfwynn last weekend. I needed to last minute book someone and she came to the rescue. She was an amazing communicator and sent the cutest photos. I had to communicate everything over a phone call (and I tend to ramble :P) and she got it all down and executed perfectly. She also administered medication and gave Aelfwynn the love she needed while I was away. I would definitely book again!

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.
