I'm Katherine | Cat Sitting in Richmond, VA
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 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 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.

She was great with both my cats. Even my shy cat who rarely comes out whit people she doesn’t know warmed up to her quickly!
Kate’s communication with me was excellent throughout the process. She was wonderful with the cats, even the most timid “scaredy” one. Kat even took the time to send me photos of my cats while I was away! I highly recommend Katherine (Kat) for all of your cat-sitting needs!
She was able to help me on very short notice which was greatly appreciated. Very quick to respond, gave consistent updates, and the shared album of pics/videos was a nice touch!
Katherine did a wonderful job taking care of my cat while I was out of town recently! My cat is a little anxious but warmed up to her easily, and Katherine was great with communication and sending photos and updates while I was away. She was wonderful to work with, and I will be booking here again!
Katherine was great. She let me know how Boba was doing and sent pics and videos. I felt very comfortable having her check in on Boba.

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.
