I'm Patricia | Cat Sitting in Richmond, VA

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 local animal shelter where I was...

Patricia's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Patricia is wonderful! She set my mind at ease when we had our preliminary meeting, and from the minute she arrived to care for my cats, she did an absolutely stellar job. I can't stress enough how great she is. She is most definitely my pet sitter from now on!

Patricia did an amazing job taking care of my older cat who has health issues. From medication to food to litter box accidents, she was on top of things, and provided great updates!

Making reservations with Patricia is amazing. She makes it so easy, and I’m not sure who loves her more, I, or kitty Kai! it’s always hard to leave the little fellow, but he looks so happy when she comes to visit. She has endless patience and is truly genuine. I cannot recommend her enough.!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. 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.
