I'm Ashley | Cat Sitting in Arlington, TX

I am a DFW native who has had cats my entire life. I currently have three: a black & white tuxedo kitten, a blue/dilute tortie kitten, and 5-year-old grey tuxedo. I was lucky to care for my cat BFF Alex for 19 years throughout many special medical needs, so I am experienced with injections, liquid and pill oral meds, creams, and managing complicated medication schedules! I love a good spreadsheet and tend to leave pages of detailed info when hiring my own cat sitters, so I understand the anxiety around being away from home. That's actually one of the reasons I wanted to sign up as a cat sitter! I have two degrees in social work, and my prior work experience has been in...

Learn More About Ashley

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to meet so many different cats with unique personalities. Just like with people, I let them (and their owners) show me who they are and what they like. Cats can be such complex creatures with distinct preferences. My favorite thing to learn is what version of broken and/or repurposed item is their favorite toy (mine love fabric reusable shopping bags)!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Like most, our cats have Legal Names, plus the actual names we call them: Wally or Beefcake (Walter); Margaret or Magpie (Maggie); Roo, Roofus, Rooster (Veruca).

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

At the first meeting, I like to get down to their level and let them approach me while I gently talk to them. They’re welcome to sniff & explore, and I wait for the cat to initiate contact. If they show signs of being interested but still hesitant, I’ll offer treats or a favorite toy. I understand Owner’s absence may have them a bit stressed already so I’m happy to just hang out nearby and give them time & space. Some cats take a couple visits before they get close, some come right over, and others maintain their distance. I respect cats’ boundaries & how they communicate with us.

This is the second time Ashley has taken care of my cat while I was away, and both my cat and I couldn't be happier with her services. I have a couple more trips coming up and feel very comfortable leaving my cat in Ashley’s care.

One of my cats is antisocial. Ashley got her out of her shell, and was able to actually interact with her during the visit. For I cat I sometimes don't see for days at a time this was an accomplishment and appreciated.

Ashley was prompt and responsive. she was gentle with our shy guy and playful with both. she updated us regularly, even with small details. Our boys miss us when we are away and Ashley helped to make them happy.

I had a great experience with Ashley! She was kind, responsive, and my cats immediately warmed up to her. She took extra care to ensure that my cats got the medication they needed on schedule, and spend lots of time playing! She also left our house neat and tidy, brought in the mail, and took out our garbage cans. I would definitely book Ashley again!

Ashley took great care of both my indoor and outdoor kitties. She was patient with the shy ones but they eventually warmed up to her. Pictures and updates made me feel confident they were in good hands.

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.
