I'm Patricia | Cat Sitting in Richmond, VA

Fall and winter holidays are approaching! Book early :) Hello! My name is Patty, and I have been a cat lover/owner for over 50 years! My first cat was Tinkerbell, a shelter cat my parents adopted for me on my 7th birthday. And that was the start of my official cat-loving life as Tinkerbell was followed by 6 others! That being said, there has been only one 3 month stretch when I was without a cat. Currently, my husband and I have a 13 year old Tuxedo named Happy or Hap for short. I love the laid-back attitude of cats and their ability to decide when and who they will befriend. I also respect that each cat has his/her own personality and will decide when he/she is ready to approach a new person. I have had experience tending to cats who need to take oral and topical medicines as well as finicky and shy cats. In the past, I volunteered at a loca...

Attention to Detail

This was my second time using Patricia, and she is wonderful :) She goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable leaving your kitty, by sending plenty of photos and videos. I completely trust Patricia, and know she is always reliable. Arwen loves her too!

Patricia was an awesome kitty sitter. She played with EJ and took great pictures of him, especially when leaving the door open for him to sun himself. Litter box and food care were great. Thank you, Patricia, for the awesome kitty care you gave you EJ. I felt comfortable knowing you were there for him😻

Patricia was amazing! Kai instantly felt comfortable. We were nervous about leaving Kai and Patricia put us at ease. We received pictures and videos every day. She is kind and compassionate. We highly recommend her!

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

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.
