I'm Mari | Cat Sitting in Bothell, WA

Hi! I’m Mari, an animal lover and devoted cat enthusiast. I’ve had cats all my life and wouldn’t have it any other way! I thrive on discovering the unique personalities of new kitties and getting to know their quirks. I’ve even been told that cats gravitate to me and that they reveal their cuddly and friendly side in my presence. I’m CPR and first aid certified for cats and dogs. When I began pet sitting on Meowtel, I completed a continuing education course, at WCC in Bellingham, called PetSaver. Now I feel much more confident caring for your cats and knowing when (and how) I can help them with an emergency and when they need to go to the vet. I’d recommend this course to all pet owners - you will learn so much! I have been a volunteer at Seattle Humane, caring for cats that were waiting on thei...

Learn More About Mari

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to know the quirks of each unique cat and discovering what makes them purr! Capturing creative photos of your kitties is very rewarding. It’s so fun to try to capture their personality in a single frame.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I do, and we've been together for more than 10 years! Kuya is my orange and white tuxedo tabby boy, and I have a gray, black and orange tortoiseshell girl, Boomer (she’s been going by Boomsie these days). I adopted them in 2013, when they were just 8 weeks, from the Humane Society in Bellingham, WA.

Mari's Reviews

Attention to Detail

This is the second time Mari has babysat my cat, and she continued the 5 star service. I totally trust Mari with Polo and look forward to future worry free getaways.

Mari bonded right away with our cat. He loved her from their very first meeting. She was consistent with feeding, care, and giving him lots of playtime. We appreciated her clear and consistent communication, especially since this is the first time we’ve gone away since adopting him six months ago. When we got home, he seemed relaxed and very well cared for. We will definitely hire Mari again.

Mari was fantastic with Polo, giving him medications, playing with him, and sending great pics. It was a relief to be totally comfortable with his care while I was away.

Mari was wonderful! She earned the trust of my shy kitty and burned the energy of the rambunctious ones. Great updates and attention to detail for potential issues I should be aware of while I was out. Will book again.

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.
