BEFORE BOOKING, ASK ME ABOUT DISCOUNTS! (Certain clients/reservations may be eligible for discounted rates based on location. Discounts can only be applied at the time of booking. Discounts cannot be applied retroactively. Message me for details!) THE IMPORTANT STUFF: Fully vaxxed and prepared to follow any additional precautions to ensure you feel comfortable and safe allowing me into your home. I will treat your pets with the same care as if they were my own. As an independent consultant, I set my own hours and therefore have broad and flexible availability to accommodate your cat-sitting needs. For established clients, I can likely accommodate last-minute/emergency requests. I have my own car. I live in the near west end (near Willow Lawn) and have lived in RVA nearly my entire life, so I know my way around. Ideally, I'd like to stick with clients within 20 miles, but am willing to consider further distances. I love animals. All kinds. I am kind, patient, compassionate, detailed, and professional. I believe pet sitting is about establishing respectful relationships with the pets and their pawrents. The importance of establishing trust and nurturing a feeling of safety for everyone involved, including the animals, cannot be understated. I have fostered dogs and kittens and find this process incredibly rewarding. ABOUT ME/MY EXPERIENCE: My current pack includes: - Mack, a 90lb boxer-mix rescue...foster-“fail,” who thinks he’s part human and part cat - two “kittens”, Cheese (an orange tabby who thinks she’s part dog) and her brother Brent. We rescued them, along with their 3 other siblings, from the storm drain outside of my apartment in April 2022 – Mom and Dad were rescued (TNR) too and I fostered and socialized all 5 kittens until they were adopted. - a 4-year old tortie named CeCe who is not thrilled to have gone from being an only cat to a multi-cat + dog household I got my first kitten, Muffin, when I was 4-years-old. As I sat on the floor of ...

Very friendly and trustworthy catsitter! She sent photos and updates every day, kept the food/water/and litter tidy. She even managed to charm our shyest cat which is a real challenge! We felt so comfortable with her caring for our kitties. Thank you Kat!

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

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $32.00. 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.
