Meow! I'm Marissa, a Cat Sitter in , WA

I was retired as an active fur parent in November 2021, and I've found the next best thing is to be an adopted fur parent 💕 I started kitty sitting because I had a kitty shaped hole in my life and I wasn't ready to start a relationship with a new kitty yet. I love all animals, but I am extremely passionate about kitties and making sure they receive excellent care because they are truly special creatures. I have been sitting through Meowtel for over a year now, since December 2021, with over 130 completed reservations, and It has been so rewarding being able to apply my personal kitty experiences to help others! I have since adopted two kitty brothers born on April 13th, 2022 😻 and have loved kitties through Meowtel from 8 weeks old to 23 years old 😻 I love to be greeted by a talkative kitty, but I understand not all kitties have that personality! Paying attention to body language to help minimize stress and maximize comfort levels is very important to me, and I continually research kitty behavior, paired with my own experiences. I have had/cared for multiple elderly cats with medical conditions that require more extensive care including diabetes, cancer, kidney failure, thyroid issues, IBS, seizures, asthma, FIV, herpes, high blood pressure, and severe arthritis.

Working and communicating with Marissa was easy and she did great with Smokey, not the friendliest cat on the block. The pics and videos she sent were fun and reassuring. I would definitely work with Marissa again. Yay to Meowtel for helping me find her.

Marissa was fantastic. Her daily updates made me know my cat, Leo, was in the BEST of hands, and was being watched by someone who cared. I will definitely use her again.

Marissa was great and kept us well informed throughout our time away. I completely trust my kittens and home in her care. The pics & video she sent each visit was appreciated as well as her updates. She took care of a few things around the house for us. Completely satisfied! Will use Marissa again!

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. 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.
