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...

Kooka has been abandoned multiple times until now. So when I have a late day, I do not hesitate to book Helen. Kooka loves Helen! Helen has a gentl, calming voice and mannerism. She truly loves cats and they love her. If you are worried about your kitty, Helen will quickly win you and them over.

My kitty can be spicy sometimes, but Helen was able to administer his meds and even get him to come out and play with her, which never happens! She made my first weekend away from my problem child so easy and totally took all the anxiety out of leaving him with her!

This was our first time using a cat sitter and Helen was great! She took the time to make sure my shy kitty ate and felt safe. Her updates and pictures helped us feel ok with leaving our babies home. She even offered to feed my fish! Highly recommend Helen!

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.
