This was the first time leaving our kitties with a sitter since we moved to Virginia in March. Hillary was great, she provided daily updates and took great care of our two cats and the house. I appreciated her great communication and the care she gave my girls while we were away. Will definitely look to hire her again the net time we are out of town.

We have been working with Hillary for over a year, and I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I’ll be moving out of the area — and the only regret I have is not being able to keep working with her. My cat loves her. She is so thoughtful and communicative! Hillary is the BEST!

As usual Hillary was awesome! She sent photos or videos from every visit and even got the cats some new toys!

All was wonderful! Fluff is a picky eater but for Hillary she cleaned her dish. We were so happy with photos and daily news. Perhaps we should travel again and make our cat happy 🐈‍⬛

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations.

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.
