I'm Jared | Cat Sitting in Knoxville, TN

I have had a total of 5 cats in my care for well over a decade of my life and nothing brings me more joy than the feeling of knowing their needs, no matter how fickle, are met. Understanding an animal’s needs goes beyond their ability to simply communicate them to us. Instead, it requires a deeper understanding of their behavioral cues and mannerisms to determine when an animal is doing well or when it is lacking in care. To that end cats, as wonderful as they are, are subtle and elusive creatures. I take a large amount of pride in my ability to go the extra mile to make sure that their individual needs are observed and acted upon. In my personal and professional life, I have committed my energies towards the preservation of all living things. My background in the natural sciences has led me down the path of environmental law because my deepest desire is to make sure those who cannot preserve their interests are heard a...

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I prefer to immediately establish a clear and abundant channel of communication. There is never a situation where a cat parent can communicate too much with me. I recognize how much they care and want to match that care and then some. Once we feel comfortable with our established communication, I then process all given instructions and will typically attempt to reiterate my understanding to them to make sure there is no misunderstanding. Following that, key points of follow-up include: how they prefer their updates, what behavioral cues should I look out for, and how often would they like phot

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

Taking a thorough approach to security is essential, especially during the first few days when all parties are getting used to the arrangement. Taking precautions to check all possible entrances and exits for both outsiders and the cats themselves, helps limit all possibilities of potential accidents. I treat a client's home like my own and their pets the same way. I want them to rest assured their safety and comfort is my utmost priority.

Are you usually available during holidays?

Yes! I am happy to work nearly every holiday except for Christmas. Even then, I am often only busy for a day or two of that season.

Jared's Reviews

Attention to Detail

I was very anxious about leaving my cat, who is 21 years old and deaf. She had a bad experience boarding a few years ago, so I thought I would try a pet sitter. I was so pleased with the care by Jared. He is a very responsible young man who is courteous, professional and thorough. His questions were appropriate and focused on Molly. I immediately felt at ease when I saw her interact with him. I received daily feedback and this helped me so much. I can't recommend him highly enough! Thank you so very much!!!

I would 100% recommend Jared as a pet sitter. He was super sweet with my cat, Luna. He took the time to play with her even when she was a bit shy. He followed all my instructions about Luna's diet and sent me detailed updates and tons of pictures. He always replied quickly, too.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $26.00. 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.
