I'm Bobbie | Cat Sitting in Pittsburgh, PA

Hello! I am new to Pittsburgh but not to kitties! Frankly, cats are a major part of my personality. I grew up in the country and had multiple indoor-outdoor cats as well as a colony while I was growing up. I now have 1 fully indoor cat that gets catio time. I love spending time with any and all kitties. I ESPECIALLY appreciate the challenge of getting shy kitties to open up to me. My fur baby, Willow, has chronic calicivirus. Due to this condition, after a routine teeth cleaning and removal, she developed an intense amount of swelling in her eye. Unfortunately, our vet at the time was underprepared to manage this condition, and Willow quickly lost all vision. She had the impacted eye removed in October 2022 and has been the sweetest and happiest baby ever since! Using portrait mode on my phone to take pictures of cats is my favorite pastime. I'm also a plant girly so I will definitely water your plants...

Learn More About Bobbie

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Besides hanging out with kitties, I love sending you photos of your babies! When I’m away, I just LOVE seeing my kitty, especially when the photos show how happy she is, even while her favorite people are away ❤️

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

I’d highly recommend looking for glowing reviews with specific details about what a client liked. Something like “She was great, kitty loved her.” Is a little vague… also if your preferred sitter is unavailable, feel free to ask them who they might recommend! I’m a sitter, but also occasionally a customer on Meowtel!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I’m a huge believer that getting down on their level is so important. I typically prefer hanging out with kitties on the floor so that I seem to be less of a threat. Additionally, as the saying goes: slow and steady wins the race. I’m happy to start out the relationship slow until there is some trust there. Outside of this, I love to hear advice from the parent(s)! Sometimes the initial approach is the hardest thing to orchestrate. So, if your kitty has a favorite snack, toy, or sound (such as a bag opening) please let me know so I can work to associate things they love with my presence!

This was my second time booking Bobbie so I knew my cat, Linus was in great hands. Linus is super social and loves to play and you can tell by the pictures she sends that he's getting all the playtime and attention he needs. Absolutely nothing to worry about when leaving your fur babies with Bobbie. She's 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.

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 $31.00. 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.
