I'm Alex | Cat Sitting in Nashville, TN
My name is Alex Jenkins and I live in East Nashville with my two babies - a 3 yr old spunky orange Tabby female named Tally and a 5-year old sweet fluffy gray boy named Apollo. I absolutely love cats because they’re much sweeter than people think and are wonderful companions. Snuggling and playing with my furr babies is my favorite thing to do. I’ve had cats since I was a little girl and have had experience caring for dogs and cats as a pet owner and a volunteer at shelters. I have fostered a few kittens as well who were struggling to be adopted due to their demeanor - but I was able to help socialize them and find them furrever homes. I have a lot of experience with helping kitties take their meds as my cat growing up had asthma and my gray boy, Apollo is currently on medication for early stage kidney dise...
Alex was an awesome cat sitter and I can’t wait to hire her again! She’s very responsive and sent me lots of updates!
we’re #TeamAlex over here. i have two very attention-dependent sphynxes, so my main concern is making sure they receive a lot of love— Alex gives that + playtime, feedings and litter checks/clean up. her photos always make me feel confident and ready to get back to my babies. will book Alex every time!
Alex was so flexible to care for my baby when I had to last minute go out of town! she’s always so thoughtful and responsable- and I’m starting to think my cat enjoys playing with her more than he does with me!! haha
Alex made me feel so comfortable leaving my baby for my first time away. She was very attentive and responsive to his cues, and he quickly took a liking to her despite his not usually liking new people! she sent amazing photos each day along with updates and did an amazing job keeping his food, water and litter well cared for. I can’t say enough great things about Alex!
Alex is the cat sitter of your dreams! Ive never had to hire a cat sitter before, but we just moved to a new city and were headed out of town for a last minite trip. Alex was able to come over and meet with our kitty while I was there to introduce herself and pickuo the keys. I was so surprised at how fast our kitty took to her! Our cat Kiki is unpredictable around strangers 😅but she loved alex! It gave me so much peace during my trip that an experienced cat-person was checking in on her while I was gone. Thank you for everything Alex!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $26.00.
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.
