I'm Barbara | Cat Sitting in Woodbridge, VA

There are two kinds of people when it comes to cats: haters and lovers. I happen to be the latter (a lover!). Cats have always been a part of my life. My love for these beautiful felines is evident in the way I care for my own 5 cats. In high school I convinced my parents to build a catwalk from the stairs to the main room and they race across every day! I am...

Attention to Detail

Barbara was so easy to work with! She gave us peace of mind with daily updates and photos, even cleaning litter while we were gone.

I am so happy I found Meowtel. My cat has anxiety issues when left at the kennel and Meowtel was the solution. Barbara followed my instructions to the letter. She took very good care of my cat and everything was so clean when I returned.

Barbara did an amazing job with our cat Raven. She sent pictures and updates during every visit and kept our little guy company and played with him a lot. She was very careful when entering and leaving because he likes to sneak out. We will definitely be hiring Barbara again, thank you for doing such a great job!

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 $30.00. 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.
