I'm Jessie | Cat Sitting in Bellevue, WA

Hello! My name is Jessie and I recently moved to the Seattle area (Bellevue!) with my spouse and two cats, Dora and Makita. I am excited to meet other cat people and their kitties! Before moving to Washington, we lived overseas for work and moved every two to three years living in Pristina, Kosovo, Tokyo, Japan, and Lagos, Nigeria. Through these moves, Dora and Makita accompanied us to every location and after 12 different flights, they still don’t like traveling, but they are very resilient felines and it has been quite the experience to travel with them. Dora and Makita are tortoiseshell sisters from the same litter with very different personalities! Makita was the runt of the litter but you’d never know it now with her 12 pounds of fluffy attitude! Dora has always been a very curious kitty and though she’s shy around new people, she is super playful and cuddly when she gets to know you! They are both excellent hunters and love to play with toy mice and nerf balls. Though Dora and Makita are my first indoor ...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have experienced both sides of cat sitting -- I've been both a client and a cat sitter. I've hired cat sitters for my two cats since 2014 so my spouse and I could travel without anxiety. Before the pandemic, I exchanged cat sitting services with several coworkers so they could travel with ease. One kitty I cared for was a senior fella with very specific litter, dietary, and medication needs. I started cat sitting with Meowtel in December 2023.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I have always loved cats, and being a cat sitter means I get to meet amazing kitties and their cat-loving humans! It makes my heart happy to win over shy kitties and learn about the funny quirks each cat has.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two 9-year-old tortoiseshell kitties, Dora and Makita. They are sisters from the same litter born on my parents' farm. Their mother and one of their brothers still lives at my parents' farm and they love seeing me when I visit! Dora and Makita have traveled across the globe with me, from their birthplace in Missouri, to Nigeria, Japan, Kosovo, and now Washington. They still act like kittens when they play, but are just as happy to be snuggly lap cats too!

Jessie was very responsive to messages and took notes about how to take care of the cats. She took lots of photos of them during her updates and let us know how they were both doing. We do hope to work with her again.

Jessie was absolutely amazing. She was willing to learn how to give insulin to my diabetic cat and handled it well. She's very thorough during her visits, gives excellent updates, and adorable photos as well. I really enjoyed reading her updates because they were like well-written short stories. I have found my new cat sitter, and look forward to working with her again in the future. Looks like the cats have a new "auntie."

We were so happy with Jessie! She has a magic touch - our super shy cat actually came out and allowed herself to be petted. Jessie is detail-oriented and provided us with lots of updates while we were away. Highly recommend!

When I realized how immediately Khleo clicked with Jessie, I knew right then and there that Jessie would be perfect. Consistent and with detailed updates, I enjoyed reading and watching videos and pictures of Khleo looking so happy and relaxed. Jessie is so sweet and respectful, with quick responses to any question I may have and super smart. She will continue to be my go-go sitter for my Khleo girl! Thank you, Jessie!

It's wonderful how quickly Jessie made friends with my girls, even the shy one. She was careful about their routine, and is a really great photographer

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 $29.00. 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.
