I'm Alyssa | Cat Sitting in Philadelphia, PA

Hi! I’m Alyssa, your kitty’s awesome catsitter! I’ve had the privilege of owning two cats for five years and I can’t picture my life without them. I’ve volunteered at animal shelters and I have a passion for TNR work. I’ve lived in Philadelphia for eleven years, six of those being in Fairmount. Outside of kitty-related interests I like hiking, running, kayaking, paddle boarding, and molecular biology. My two cats were adopted as a bonded pair from PAWS and have very different personalities. Onyx is a shy and more reserved snuggle bug while Obsidian is an outgoing goofball and very playful, so it is very important to me to learn and respect each cat’s personality to ensure their comfort while I’m around. That’s one of the things I love most about cats; each one is different and they don’t have blind loyalty to humans. It’s a wonderful feeling when you earn their trust and they can be their true selves around you. I know how worrisome it can be...

Learn More About Alyssa

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

I’ve been cat sitting through Meowtel for about 1.5 years. I’m experienced in giving oral medications (solid and liquid) as well as handling anxious/nervous kitties. I’m also quite skilled in handling super playful and “please hold me” kitties!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love meeting new cat parents and cats! It’s fun for me to be able to talk cat-stuff to other cat lovers. I even found a different brand of treats through a client! One client of mine had two floofy main coons which was amazing.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I had a client with two very anxious kitties who hid the majority of the time during a week-long reservation. Towards the end of the reservation, I was able to catch a glimpse of both cats! The one even came out of hiding and stood in the room with me while I was sending an update to their parent. It was a great feeling to see both cats starting to trust me!

Jack and Mo had a great experience with Alyssa! Alyssa sent photos and updates each day and managed all of our cats’ particular quirks to keep them well-fed, hydrated, tidy and not stressed-out. We were happy to have peace of mind about their welfare while we were away!

Alyssa was a wonderful cat sitter for Penny! She was very communicative and attentive, and took care of all the care tasks I asked of her while I was away. She also sent pictures of Penny during each of her visits, which was greatly appreciated!

Alyssa was wonderful! I felt very comfortable and safe entrusting her with the care of my two shy cats while I was out of town for a 10-day trip. She is patient, attentive, and reliable, and sent me thoughtful daily updates that really set my mind at ease. I will definitely work with her again!

Alyssa took great care of my two cats while I was away for a week. She sent me regular updates and really seems to love cats! My cats were perfectly fine when I returned, which means that they were well cared for :) thanks Alyssa!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. 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.
