I'm Donna | Cat Sitting in Richmond, VA
*Fully Vaccinated, comfortable following sanitization and mask practices based on client’s preference and comfortability* Hi there! Here’s a little about me to find out if I could be a good fit to take care of your kitties while you’re away. I have always loved cats and asked incessantly for my mom to let us get a family cat for years. My dream came true and she took me to the shelter when I was 12 and we met a sweet little orange tabby (who is now a very large orange tabby) and named him Milo. At 15, Milo is still happily living with my mom and I visit him as much as I can. Venturing into my own adult life, I took the plunge and adopted a little kitty named Nox about three years ago and she has changed my life for the better with her cute cat naps, her energetic dashes down the hallway, and her commitment to hunting any small pieces of paper she can find. I have the lived experience of taking care of two healthy cats. I have experience with oc...
Donna was responsive, respectful and took great care of my cats. The full process from booking through to service was straightforward and my cats were relaxed when I returned from the holidays, thank you!
Donna is fantastic!! I will use her anytime!
Donna was AMAZING. She sent multiple photos every day, and successfully medicated our cats (both being a bit challenging...like holding pills in the mouth for extended periods THEN spitting it out or hiding under a bed). One of our kitties has had many medical issues so we were nervous leaving him for 2 weeks, but he was in such good hands with Donna. We came back to a perky, healthy, happy little fella. 🥰 Looking forward to hopefully having Donna's help on our next trip!
it was easy to book and communicate with our sitter. She did a great job, she was even able to pry our cat out from under the sofa and give her medicine. It made my trip better knowing there was a caring person looking out for my "baby".
Great communication and very prompt! I felt very confident leaving Gordy in Donna’s care.

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.
