I'm Sophie | Cat Sitting in Philadelphia, PA

I am a big cat lover. I grew up with four cats, and currently have 2 of my own- Henry and Simon. Henry is a ginger tabby and Simon is a Russian blue and I adore them! (I am a musician and some of my merch designs even feature my cats! :) ). Henry has had a tough year and has had to go on a few different medications for anxiety, as well as a specialized diet, so I am well-versed in administering various medications (liquid and pills) and topical ointments as well as ...

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

I have been cat sitting with Meowtel for almost a year, but before that I was cat sitting for friends and colleagues. I grew up with cats in my family, and my husband and I have two cats. I feel very comfortable around cats, have had to deal with my fair share of cat issues in my own house (medication, UTI issues, dietary restrictions, emergency vet visits, fleas, worms, etc!). I understand how much people love their cats because I love mine so much!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I just love being around cats! There is nothing quite like getting to spend time with cats to cure a mood. I love the company, and the pure love. Plus, I love the silliness of cats ;)

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I really love all of the cats I get to meet- they are all unique and funny in their own ways; however, one in particular comes to mind :) I have gotten to watch an older cat a couple of times now. She needs daily medication because she has some health issues and sometimes you have to force the pills down. She is so funny because she definitely does not love when I do that, but I love her so much. I believe I reversed her decline because of how annoyed with me she was that I made her take her pills! She got so pissed at me that she got a second wind!

Sophie was amazing with my girls! She was able to make them both feel comfortable, and she helped my shy cat open up and play. She was extremely thorough with the feeding, litter box, and water refills, going above and beyond. She sent the greatest updates with so many cute photos and videos. I couldn’t have asked for better sitter!

Sophie is the best caretaker for my shy and sneaky kitty anytime I go away. It's the only way I can leave and know my Lucy is in good hands.

Sophie was so wonderful! We have a very shy and sassy cat, and Sophie treated her so well and with such care. She was even able to give our cat medicine! Sophie was quick to respond and sent the best photos and updates. Sophie made going away really easy - I felt so comfortable our baby would be cared for! I would definitely recommend Sophie and will rebook in the future should we need another cat sitter!

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 $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.
