I'm Brian | Cat Sitting in Lititz, PA

Hello and welcome fellow fur parents. Likely, the most indisputable trait my mother instilled within me and my 2 sisters during our upbringing is our overwhelming appreciation, love, and concern for cats. I've noticed that some dog owners (my wife previously included) feel as though they are able to look down on cat owners (a.k.a. fanatics) because of being perceived as 'lazy pet owners' since we are not required to interact with them as often as dogs. But I wholeheartedly disagree in that many of us cat owners realize that we are in fact more engaged with our feline friends than others would be with their dogs to make them the pets we hope for them to be. Thor, our first young adult male cat, acts like a dog and I am his master. When he isn't napping, he often intentionally seeks me out to be near me. While preparing food in the kitchen, he stays between my legs and moves back between them every time I move from one place to another. When I sit in my recliner he hops into my lap and sprawls out so that I can rub what most cats consider the 'danger zone' the belly and he snoozes with his paws tucked up into his chest. I can't have an entire night of comfortable sleep without him being either hammocked between my legs, tucked under my arm, or (more often than I would like to admit) crammed face-first into my butt while I try to sleep on my side. Nevé, our 2nd fur-baby (generation 2), was adopted from my sister's unintentional collection of cats and kittens at a local (to her) barn. Nevé is a French word of Latin origin that means 'field of granular snow' which suits her perfectly as she is a beautiful fluffy white color with 2 grey highlights: one on her forehead and one on her tail. She is 3 years old and has taken to my wife from the start. As I initially described her, she is the most INTENSE LAP CAT I have ever met. She often and instantly asserts herself into the lap (of my wife more than mine) and takes instant comfort in knowing she is loved. Our 3rd fur-baby (generation 2) is Loki. He is also from the colony of cats that my sister has tried to keep in good health while also trying to control its expansion. The first visit I made to my sister to select a cat to adopt resulted in Loki (then called Isis) crawling up my clothing and jumping into my arms. Since he was not neutered, I didn't want to take a chance on his adoption until that had been done. I wanted to reduce the chance of either him or his stepbrother (Thor) starting to spray and causing issues with the furever adoption. On that first visit, I adopted Nevé instead but went back 2 months later to get this crazy guy. It only took a few days for him and Thor to become BEST BUDDIES! It is heartwarming to see those two boys play throughout the house; flying squirrel moves; mutually att...

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

I've been cat-sitting for over 2 years with a start around 1/2022 and have had nothing but positive experiences both with the fur babies and the parents. I attribute that to being a fur father myself and understanding how 'cat people' are and that baby talk isn't only for tiny humans.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

While bursts of laughter from playing with kitties are fun, I truly enjoy when I start with an apprehensive kitty that hides upon my undesired (in the cat's eyes) arrival. With time and patience it eventually gets to where it looks forward to seeing my arrival. I know that 'belly rubs' are typically something that most kitties do not enjoy; I take great joy in building the bonds of confidence and regard they need to accept and even enjoy belly rubs.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I have one kitty in particular that reacts with overwhelming enthusiasm upon my arrival. When I enter clients houses I always give a greeting to the kitty/kitties there. With this one, I endearingly shout her name and what I get in return is what I would consider an aggressive reply back much akin to 'Where the h3ll have you been!?' to which I would respond that I missed her as well.

I couldn’t be more at ease leaving my cat in Brian’s care. From the intro visit to the last visit, he was kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable. I had no reservations about having him in my home and no worries about the care he would provide. He sent daily updates to reassure me he showed up. Zoë adjusted to the situation immediately and was waiting by the door for his arrival every morning. Brian spent 45 minutes with her to make sure she was feed and loved. He exceptional service allowed me to enjoy my time away without worrying about my cat’s wellbeing. Well worth everything! Thank you!

We just moved here from Florida & three weeks later had to go back for a wedding. To say we stressed about finding a good cat sitter was an understatement. To add to the worry the cats were already stressed about the move up here. Brisn was amazing from our first meeting. After the second day he had not seen one of the cats & let us know he was concerned. We still had boxes in closets & were far from settled. He went early the next day & found a couple of her hiding spots. He sent lots of pictures & detailed updates. when we came home… the cats & the home was pure Zen Thanks to Brian. We would stand in line to get him again! Brian was just the BEST!!!

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 $34.00. 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.
