I'm Ilene | Cat Sitting in Burke, VA
Hi there! My name is ilene and I have had pets all my life. I currently have 2 senior dogs and 3 cats. I just adopted Mango after fostering 5 kittens for Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. Mango stole my heart....he is so friendly and loving! So, he is a “foster fail.” My other cats include my oldest, Kahlua, who an 11-year-old Siamese. Then there is Noodles, a black cat who is 7 years old and super friendly. I have been a dog walker and cat sitter on and off for years. My neighbor has her own pet sitting company and I have filled in for her when she was unable to sit for a client. I can give m...
my normal Meowtel sitter was unavailable and Ilene was a good stand-in. She had good quick communication, was willing to do extra things like water plants or pick up the mail, and bring over some wet food when I ran out. she was good about asking questions anout things i might have forgot. I would use her again if my regular was unavailable
My cat Mikey is a very shy senior cat, but Ilene won his trust. Ilene kept in touch with me via email and even sent a video of Mikey responding to scratches. With a 5 hour time difference I appreciated the timely updates. My plants appreciated her care, too. Ten stars for Ilene!
Ilene helped take care of our two cats while we were away for a week. She was communicative and easy to reach. Everything went smoothly. I wouldn't hesitate to ask Ilene to help again.
Ilene was great and our cats are happy and healthy. She set up a meet and greet ahead of time and took notes to make sure she remembered everything. She also helped with other tasks like bringing in packages and checking on our bearded dragon. Would definitely use again!
Ilene did a great job taking care of our cat while we were on vacation! She was a great communicator from our first meeting through the end of our trip. She sent daily updates (with photos!) and also took in the mail. We will definitely be using Ilene to take care of our cat again!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.
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.
