I'm Danica | Cat Sitting in Alexandria, VA

Cats are my passion—the animal I love most in this world. As people who know me could tell you, cats make me very happy and I light up whenever I see one. I have one black cat named Spyro that I love so much. My friend observed me with the baby angels and thinks they can tell that I adore them. I'm gentle in my approach and let them warm up to me, in one way by bending down to get to their level so they feel more comfortable and less intimidated. I've been pet-sitting since I was young. Last year, I became a cat care volunteer, and I wish I had started earlier! O...

Learn More About Danica

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one black cat named Spyro, who I got about a year and a half ago. He's around 9 years old, and I'm obsessed with him. Waiting almost three decades for a cat makes having him all the more special.

Are you usually available during holidays?

Yes, I am typically available during all holidays.

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

I'm patient with them and let them say hi when they're ready. I sit with them and sometimes sing to get them more comfortable with my presence and voice.

We’ve had Danica watch Posie 3 times when we’ve gone away. She takes great care and is very communicative with us all the time. 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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $31.00. 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.
