I'm Mara | Cat Sitting in North Charleston, SC

I moved to Charleston two years ago and love it. I am a former teacher and I was hoping to make some extra money and meet some animals doing it. I travel occasionally and know just how much I worry and want proper care for my pets. I feel that there are not enough people who do what is needed to care for our fur babies, so I decided to be that person. I grew up around animals. I have had, cats, dogs, horses, raccoons, opossums, lizards, snakes, and even an alligator for a short time. It is an interesting story, you can ask about. The cat distribution center found me at 2 years old. My mom said he refused to leave my side and followed me everywhere. He was a pretty siamese, that I called Sylvester. I have had at least one cat ever since. They always seem to find me, or I t...

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

I have taken care of lots of pets for people over the years. My mother's cats, my friends and other family. I feel special knowing theu trusted me with their loves and often asked me to do it again.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy meeting new cats and just loving them.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two cats. Vlad is a senior Bengal-Siamese. I inhereted when my mother passed, because I was the only one other than her that he showed affection to. Bast is a small black kitty that I found under a car. She was feral and is now the sweetest thing.

Mara is amazing! I was overly anxious about leaving my two kitties for ten days but she did such a great job! She communicated with me daily and took pictures. She also went above and beyond by cleaning when my kitties created messes around the house. She swept, vacuumed, and kept our place neat and tidy.

I am so happy that I contacted Mara to kittysit for my Bobo. He is an 8-year-old, high maintenance, special needs cat that needs daily medication and special care. Mara went beyond my expectations and provided *everything* that I requested. I was so grateful that she was available within a day for the meet & greet. Mara sent me tons of photos and videos and kept in touch with me about every aspect of his needs - from feeding to litter box cleanup to his meds, Mara was wonderful in all aspects!! I absolutely would not hesitate to reserve her again. The meet & greet was wonderful. She spent time with my shy fur baby and everything worked out just so wonderfully!

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.

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.
