I'm Cailyn | Cat Sitting in Seattle, WA

Hi everyone! I’m Cailyn. I live in Capitol Hill, and I work in tech communications. I love to write, cook, embroider, read, and listen to music. I’ve always grown up with cats, and I currently have two of my own. Dart is an 9 year old tuxedo girlie, and Pabst is an 1 year old brown tabby guy. Dart is the cuddly one; she hops on to my chest and purrs every night before I go to sleep. Pabst is so energetic, he loves to play fetch and chase wand toys. They both bring me so much joy, and make our house a home. Every cat is unique, and I love to learn about their quirks and distinct personalities. I’m patient with cats on the shy side; boundaries are incredibly important to me and I promise to give your cats the same respect I’d want mine to receive. I also know how crucial playtime is to younger and/or more energetic kitties! I will keep their energy directed positively with toys and exercise. I’ve been catsitting with Meowtel for almost a year and a half. It’s become a passion project for me, I prioritize connection and enrichment. I’m not just here to fill up food bowls! I promise to give your cat my undivided attention in play and pets, and keep your home clean and tidy. Iha...

Learn More About Cailyn

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

I’ve been catsitting with Meowtel for a little over a year and a half. Before that, I have been the go-to pet sitter for my friends and neighbors here in Seattle. I seek to build relationships with both my clients and their humans 😁

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I want to help and make life easier! We all love our pets so much and it’s always stressful to leave them behind. When I’ve had people catsit well for me, it’s such a weight off of my shoulders. It allows me to be fully present in my travels, and I know my cats like making new friends. I want to do the same favor for my community, and getting to pet cats often is an AWESOME perk.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes! Dart is a 9 year old tuxedo girl, and Pabst is a 1.5 year old brown tabby guy. They’re both very sweet and social, and they get along for the most part 🤪

Cailyn is great at getting our cat out of hiding and out of her comfort zone. We noticed our cat being more relaxed when we got back from our trip. would book again!

Cailyn was friendly and responsive to messages. She's good with cats and got lots of pictures with them while stopping by for the weekend.

Cailyn did a phenomenal job with my gremlins!! I was very worried for her because as a fellow cat sitter who has probably seen hundreds of cats, my cats are the neediest, loudest, and most destructive beings I know of. However, Cailyn tamed and took great care of the monsters!! She even engineered a method to safely feed these creatures, and successfully took cute pictures of them. I will definitely be booking her again if I have to leave them!!

Cailyn sent adorable updates, which always put my mind at ease. When I returned, my home was spotless, and my three cats were clearly content and well-cared for. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a reliable and loving cat sitter. 😊👍

Cailyn was amazing with both cats and left us feeling at ease while on vacation. All of the photos and updates of play time and cuddles assured us that our kitties were doing well and having fun. I can’t recommend having Cailyn take care of your cats, enough! She was amazing.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $33.00. 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.
