I'm Melissa | Cat Sitting in Knoxville, TN

Hello, My name is Melissa! I just moved from New York a year ago and I’m loving Knoxville. I have been around cats my whole life and I would not have it any other way. I currently have a 3-year-old cat named Goose, a 2-year-old cat named Coyote, and a 2- year-old cat named Ollie. I could not imagine life without them! I know having to leave your cats when you are out of town is always difficult but I will give you the peace of mind of knowing your cat is being cared for and loved. I will...

Melissa's Reviews

Attention to Detail

We were quite pleased with the way Melissa took care of our kitties. We were gone for an extended amount of time and were initially concerned about leaving our cats so long. Melissa made sure that we got an update everyday with photos. This really put our minds at ease. She even went above and beyond by making sure the houseplants were watered. We will most definitely use her again!

Melissa was super at communication, and always kept me in the loop about everything going on with my babies. Every visit she let me know what she was doing, and she is super trustworthy. She even accommodated a special request I had about making a time change for a visit. I highly recommend her.

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.
