I'm Tessie | Cat Sitting in Nokesville, VA

Hello, kitty lovers! My name is Tessie, and I cat sit within a 20mi radius of Gainesville, VA. I have experience with both friendly and shy cats, delighting in getting to know each kitty's personality and tastes. I understand that cats, especially our sweet elders, often have particular routines and expectations and can face anxiety when these are disturbed. I seek to care for your cats in the manner they are used to, to ease their tiny hearts. While I currently am unable to own or foster cats of my own, I have nearly two decades of experience with cat ownership. Thus, you will know that I am always excited to come see your kitties, as I get to enjoy their presence! When not cat-sitting, I tend a small f...

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.
