I'm Rachel | Cat Sitting in Alexandria, VA

I have been a cat lover for my entire life! I love how intuitive they are, and how each one has its own special personality. Meeting new cats has always been a pleasure for me, and whenever I visit friends, they always make sure to introduce me to the true head of the house! My current cat, Cookie, is such a sweetheart. She adores head-butts and scritches from her people, and will ask for sofa time with me the minute I get home. I also help care for a stray cat from afar, and recently he has started allowing me to pet him! Outside of hanging out with my cat, I am currently...

Learn More About Rachel

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one little cat named Cookie! She is 11 years old and such a sweetheart.

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

Safety is my #1 priority. I make sure that all doors are locked when I come and when I go, and that nothing had been disturbed since my last visit.

What is your favorite cat toy?

I am a big fan of the classic "fish on a string" toy!

Rachel loves cats and you can tell by her updates how she observes their behavior and moods. She was a great playmate for my wild little kitten.

Rachel was very diligent in interacting with my cat Wilma, who can be shy and uneasy with strangers. She sent daily text updates and photos, which I greatly appreciated, and was very attentive to details like litterboxes and security. Our experience with Rachel was very good!

Rachel did an amazing job watching our cat, and she went above and beyond in making us feel comfortable and informed. She was always timely with updates and proactive with communication, which is always a plus. Most importantly, Rachel was great with our cat and gave her all the attention she needed, making for a very stress-free cat-sitting experience on our part. Highly recommend!

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.
