I'm Amanda | Cat Sitting in Arlington, VA

Meowllo there! Here’s why I’d be the purrfect catsitter for your kitty/ies! About me: Originally from NY, I’ve worked in DC in health policy for 1.5 years.

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

When entering a client’s home, I always keep an eye toward my feet to prevent a potential escape. I also ensure that access to the litter box and food is unobstructed.

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

Having a very anxious girl myself, I know how important it is to interact with cats on *their* terms, whether this means leaving them alone, or kneeling down and offering my finger to let them come to me if they want, familiarize themself with my scent, and decide if we can be friends. I also know that an invitation to be petted is not an invitation to be picked up. If I’m unsure, I ask my clients how the cat likes to interact, if at all.

Amanda was such a great sitter for my cat, Pia! She was quick to respond and took great care of P while I was out of town. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone! Thanks, Amanda!

Amanda went above and beyond taking care of my kitty Phoebe. I could tell my cat liked her instantly because Amanda is such a sweet person. She provided me with daily updates and cute pictures, and it made me much more at peace while traveling knowing my baby was well taken care of. I’ll be booking with her again.

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 $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.
