I'm Hillary | Cat Sitting in Havertown, PA

Meow there! I'm Hillary, your dedicated cat caretaker, and I've had the purr-ivilege of being a kitty aficionado for as long as I can remember. One of my clients even referred to me as the "Mary Poppins for cats," and I strive to live up to that title every day. My journey as a kitty sitter began with friends entrusting me to look after their feline companions. In 2019, I made the life-changing decision to return to my hometown, primarily to care for my father. It was also an opportunity for me to hit pause on my corporate career and seek something more fulfilling. After all, "There's the whole catnip world at your paws." Taking care of kitties isn't just a job for me; it's a labor of love that never feels like work. After all, who could resist the chance to visit your beloved kitties, play, smooch, and snuggle with them? "In every job that must be done, there is a whisker of fun." And yes, I'm no stranger to the litter box, as I already tend to five in my own home. Medications? No problem! I'm well-versed in administering them and have a bag of tricks to make it a stress-free experience. I've navigated through feline diabetes, asthma, arthritis, cancer, heart issues, urinary blockages, and kidney disease, so you can trust me with your kitties' health. And speaking of trust, I've learned to be ultra-vigilant when it comes to sly, door-darting, ninja-like, escape artist cats, thanks to my own mischievous Nemo's escapades. "Anything can cat-happen if you let it," and Nemo proved that when he accidentally got outside and was lost for over a week in the middle of winter storms. Th...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

Being a devoted cat lover has been a significant part of my life for as long as I can recall. My experience as a cat sitter commenced when friends started relying on me to care for their beloved feline friends during their trips. In 2019, I made a pivotal choice to go back to my hometown, driven by the desire to support and care for my father. This decision also marked a turning point as I decided to take a break from my corporate career in search of a more meaningful and fulfilling path. That is when I connected with Meowtel.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

What I find most enjoyable about cat sitting is the opportunity to connect with and care for these wonderful feline companions. It's a privilege to create a comfortable and nurturing environment for them while their owners are away. I appreciate the unique personalities of each cat and the joy they bring into my life. Building trust and forming bonds with these furry friends is a rewarding experience, making cat sitting not just a responsibility but a fulfilling and heartwarming endeavor.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My favorite cat sitting reservation is one where I connect deeply with the feline companion. It's particularly rewarding when I befriend the shy, timid, and even the spicy kitties, building trust and creating a comfortable environment. I cherish opportunities to use my experience, especially with cats that have unique needs. The most fulfilling reservations involve not just meeting basic requirements but fostering a genuine connection and providing personalized care that leaves both the cat and the owner content and at ease.

Hillary is a perfect sitter. I feel at ease knowing my cat Josie is being cared for in the manner that I care for her. She is everything you want and need in a sitter!

Hillary has been our cat sitter for several years. She truly enjoys the cats, and comes not just to feed and clean litter, but to play with them and give them some human companionship in our absence. She goes "above and beyond," rising to unexpected challenges. Her response to e-mails and text messages is always prompt and complete. We've already booked ahead for our next trip!

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 $32.00. 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.
