I'm Colleen | Cat Sitting in Philadelphia, PA

I am sometimes called "The Cat Whisperer". Cats that normally don't trust people will amaze their owners by approaching me, and allow me to get close and pet them. I have literally had cats follow me down the street. I consider my ability to bond with these beautiful creatures a true privilege and blessing. I will love your fur babies just as much as my own, and understand the bond you share with them is precious. I pay attention to detail, and communicate regularly with owners to give them updates. I understand how tough it can be to leave your babies, and I go above and ...

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

have almost 25 years of experience caring for animals. I began my career at a boarding/adoption kennel. I was responsible for ensuring the safety, and comfort of dogs and cats, which were entrusted to our care, which included: walking dogs; housekeeping; feeding; administering medications; transport of animals for routine or emergent vet care; bathing dogs; tending to our cattery (at least 3x a day, in a separate building); and assisting with adoptions in order to ensure proper placement of animals in a safe and loving home. I have also worked in 4 animal hospitals.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

It isn’t work to me! It’s medicine for the soul! I enjoy the various purrsonalities, and love every cat I meet. I feel so relaxed and fortunate to be doing something that I absolutely love!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 5: Shylo and Stormy (black brothers); Sarge (orange); Foster (long haired cream color), and Jaspurr (brown/black tabby).

I had a positive experience with Colleen overall. She helped me plan for my upcoming trip and made helpful recommendations ( pocket pill treats, pet pill gun, rearranging the furniture to administer SubQ fluids). Unfortunately I was unable to book her for my upcoming trip ( medical emergency). However, she gave me enough time to start looking for another sitter before my upcoming trip ( which I really appreciate). She also went above and beyond to help assist me with finding a replacement sitter. Colleen’s help made administer SubQ fluids easier , and if available I would definitely book her again.

absolutely, highly recommend Colleen. the cats LOVED her. she's very good with all 3. I was recovering at home but couldn't do litter box, feedings. in addition to all that, she was kind enough to bring me water from downstairs ( confined to 2nd floor) and put trash out for me. cleaned up after them, played with them, gave me great tips for their care and always on time. if she had to be a little late, she updated me with what was happening. also, fun to talk to. you will absolute not regret hiring her. Best pet sitter!!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
