Meow! I'm Alyssa, a Cat Sitter in , PA

Hi! I’m Alyssa, your kitty’s awesome catsitter! I’ve had the privilege of owning two cats for four 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 ten 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. As a scientist by day, I take COVID precautions seriously.

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!

Scheduling was very easy and Alyssa promptly accepted to cat sit my girl. She visited us to meet my cat and they got together very well. She is very dependable and send me pictures of my girl every time she visited her. I can’t say more about how wonderful she is with my girl and did her job diligently. I highly recommend Alyssa as a pet sitter.

As someone who has a cat with special medical needs, I’m always concerned with who will watch my cats when I travel. Alyssa was great! No problems giving my one cat medication. She sent photos to update me while I was away. Knowing she was taking care of my cats let me really enjoy my trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
