I'm Joanne | Cat Sitting in Woodbridge, VA

I have had cats since childhood. We lived on a farm and had six cats. I have mothered Asia (she lived for twenty-five years), Cosmo and Mindy. I have their ashes at home. Currently, I am mother to Kahli and Mahli, brother and sister. I rescued them from a feral life in 2020. My cats are sweet, social, playful and happy. Prior to retirement, I worked for the National Council on Aging (NCOA) as the Director of its Senior Environmental Employment (SEE) Program (a national employment program for person aged 55 or older) funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. I have over two decades of experience performing the duties of Project Assistant, Program Officer, Human Resources and Program Director. My specific focus was in the administrat...

Great cat sitter! Joanne came into our home when she was scheduled at around 5-5:30 pm to give our kitties their dinner. She notified me that she was there and went straight to her work! She also took an adorable picture of our youngest, George, in his sleep saucer!

Had a great meetup prior to catsitting, good communications, clear pics and updates, and cats clearly were receptive. Very good cat-sitter.

I highly recommend Joanne. Our cat can be difficult at times but she was able to take care of him very well. Our cat needs medicated and Joanne was able to tend to his special needs. It's not easy to find someone willing to give a cat insulin shots. Joanne knows exactly how to do that. Joanne provides excellent feedback on each session with the cat, and provides plenty of photos. She is very timely with answers to your questions. I will book Joanne in the future when we need care for our cat.

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 $27.00. 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.
