I'm Helen | Cat Sitting in Issaquah, WA

I have always loved animals! In my early years growing up, I rode and trained quarter horses. Of course, dogs and cats were a part of the ranch scene. All my life I have kept cats in my surroundings. Currently, I own a cat, Izzy who was a stray five years ago. I am a retired school teacher but recently returned to substituting in my local city of Issaquah, Washington. I taught special needs children for 35 years. I have always wanted to be a veterinarian but growing up in the early sixties made this career very limited to girls entering college. So recently, in late January 2022, I was hired at a cat hospital to work with the "boarders". I was as...

Working with Helen was a great experience - from her quick reply to my request and the meet and greet with me and my cat, to her updates while cat sitting, and all communication in between. Meeting her immediately put my mind at ease and I knew Lucy would be in good hands. When I got back from my travel this was confirmed. Lucy was happy and calm and you wouldn’t even know I’d been gone. I’m so happy I found Helen through Meowtel and feel much better about traveling now that I have.

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

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

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.
