I'm Shemia | Cat Sitting in Salt Lake City, UT

I love cats! I have worked in my professional career (20+ years) with gorillas, monkeys, tigers, reptiles, farm animals, birds...but it always comes back to cats. I appreciate the opportunity to provide the highest level of care for cats, no matter the environment they are in (shelter, community cat colony, or a private home). Cats can have complex needs and personalities so I believe personal attention to detail is a must. I pride myself on being responsible, reliable, and trustworthy. If medical concerns arise, I am very comfortable with medication administration, including fluid therapy. I'm also comfortable with...

Attention to Detail

Shemia is my go-to sitter for my senior kitty with multiple medical issues. Shemia is fantastic at giving medications and making friends with my spicy kitty. I can't say enough good things about her!

Shemia is amazing! My kitty can be difficult and requires daily medication, and Shemia is so good with her. I think enjoy traveling so much more knowing Shemia is taking care of my fur child.

Shemia is always great with our babies. She sends us pictures from each visit and a little note on how they’re doing. They actually get excited to see her even though they’re shy, since they have such a great time with her!

Shemia is wonderful. She understand our kitties and sends us updates with pictures and/or videos every single visit. It’s a relief being able to enjoy vacation and know the beans are healthy and well and in good hands.

Shemia is incredible! Her love of cats was apparent when we had our meet and greet. She even offered to bring some toys for our kittens and they absolutely loved them! She also sent us picture and video updates every time she stopped in which really gave us peace of mind. Would definitely recommend!

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 $28.00. 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.
