I'm Catherine | Cat Sitting in Norfolk, VA
I'm truly a "cat person" through & through. I've had many, many cats throughout my life (with some dogs, a flying squirrel, & a bunny thrown in over the years). I currently have a number of cats of my own, all rescues, ranging in age from 4 to about 15. I also feed several feral & stray cats that visit me at least twice a day for meals, and often throughout the day, just for some affection. I've been volunteering at a local no-kill shelter for about 4 years, where I'm part of a specialized team that works with socializing scared, traumatized cats, or cats with behavioral issues, in order to ready them for adoption. There are no words to describe the feeling of watching a terrified, untrusting soul blossom into a beautiful, affectionate little cat that gets excited when they realize someone is coming to visit with them. Their transformations have been so inspiring and heartwarming! My full time job is worki...
Catherine was amazing with our kitties! She was very attentive towards them and always made sure they got the love and play time they needed while we were away for a few days. she provided lots of super cute pictures of them as well! ❤️
Very quick response and was able to help in a last minute situation! She took extra care of my former stray, and even brought him extra toys and treats to keep!
Catherine was amazing and gained the trust of one of my cats straightaway! She was very responsive, giving detailed reports and photos of how my cats were doing. I was able to travel with no worries knowing my cats were in good hands!
As always, Catherine went so far above and beyond taking care of the kitties while we were away. The updates and photos are so funny and enjoyable and we know they are in great hands.
Catherine went above and beyond for our cats! This was the longest we've been away from our cats and were nervous about how they would handle it but Catherine was great with them. She made sure they were very well taken care of and had lots of playtime with them. They are normally very shy around new people but they warmed right up to her which does how great she was to them. The updates we received were very detailed and the pictures we got of them playing were so good and reassuring to us that they were doing well. We are so glad we found Catherine to care for our kitties and will definitely be asking her to watch them again. We could not recommend her enough!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.
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.
