I'm Lizzie | Cat Sitting in Columbia, SC

First and foremost, I'm a felinophile--a head-over-heels cat lover! I've both owned and cared for many, many cats throughout my life, both because they bring me much joy and because cats and I get on quite well--we seem to understand one another! If you're a cat lover too, you know this feeling :) As my day-job, I'm a graduate student, and thus have quite a flexible schedule to be able to make time to care for kitties in Columbia and the surrounding areas. Having grown up and been the sole carer for many cats, I currently have one cat: a 4-year-old Persian-Himalayan female named Prynne du Pre. She's my pride and joy, and makes for the perfect academic study companion. Practically, though, she's quite high maintenance, and herself requires a plethora of additional treatments (like daily face/ear cleaning, eye drops, regular brushing and bathing, a breed-specific diet, and anxiety management). I'm more than happy to care for her in all of these ways, and thi...

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

I have lifelong experience with cat sitting, on two different continents! I have cat sat for clients and friends both in the U.S. and U.K., so have a wide-range of experience with all sorts of clients and kitties. I've taken care of young kittens to elderly cats, and have been able to acquire a cadre of loyal, repeat clients wherever I've lived.

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

I would encourage cat owners to really trust their intuition in choosing the right cat sitter - there's nothing more reassuring than having implicit faith in the person into whose hands you've left the care of your cats! And intuition can go a long way in telling you how much you'll be able to have peace of mind when leaving your cat(s) in the hands of a cat sitter.

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

One of the best strategies for dealing with timid or anxious cats is simply allowing them to feel calm and safe in your presence, which is best done by simply being around them! With cats with whom I need to build a rapport, I find it helpful to bring a book or something quiet to do, and sit near the cat and/or his/her favorite sleeping place - it shows them that you're safe and are not a threat! 99 times out of 100, the cat will come out on his/her own and initiate trust in you, helping them to ease their fear and anxiety.

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.
