I'm Cookie | Cat Sitting in Seattle, WA

Hi! My name is Cookie and I cat sit in the neighborhood of Capitol Hill in Seattle. Please note the radius for my services in my photo gallery. Please message me before requesting a booking for prompt responses to requests. Thank you! About me: I've rescued two wonderful cats and I've rescued three amazing hens. Moving to Seattle has limited my capacity for fostering animals and so in the meantime, I love to care for animals any way I can! I love to trail run, cook, and perform in musicals. I also love to discover new vegan recipes! My desire is to do as much as I can to reduce all animal suffering. My experience: I've pet sat for cats with a variety of personalities. I’ve cared for cats with severe anxiety, cats who need endless play and attention, young troublemakers, and older adult cats with set routines. I love getting to know cats and all their individual quirks. I love the fulfillment that comes from earning a cat's trust -- they teach us about boundaries in the best way! These animals have all helped me with anxiety and depression in uncountable ways. I’ve become more receptive to how animals themselves can be stressed and anxious when their owners are away. Each animal has a unique personality that can use both soothing calm energy and bursts of fun and physical activity and I can provide both. I know that each cat is different and that cats communicate through body language. I know that behavioral issues usually stem from communication breakdowns and I strive to understand. I believe in respecting others with loving kindness at all times and that extends to their property. You can know that I will respect your privacy and property and that I value integrity and kindness above all. Please message me if you’re outside my radius or don't see certain dates available. I live in Seattle and walk to appointments. I currently service Capitol Hill. EAST LAKE residents, please send a message because I may not be able to reach your home north of East Howe Street and West of the I-5 Highway. IF YOUR ZIP CODE IS 98112, please see my ser...

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

I’ve been a Professional Meowtel Sitter since 2021 and I've completed almost 300 bookings since! I’ve lived with cats most of my life.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love earning a cat’s trust over time. I love studying how a cat shows its curiosity and over time seeing ways that their personalities blossom. My most rewarding experiences have been with shy and timid cats who “don’t like anyone”. Earning the friendship of a new cat by respecting them, paying close attention to body language, and being 100% consistent every time is such a precious experience for me.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

I recommend that you fill out your care profile carefully and review it often and between sittings! The most important thing for me is that I can evaluate whether I am a good fit for you and your cat. Having detailed notes about your cat's personality and behavior helps. Does your cat exhibit any stress behaviors when you've gone away before? Preparation is key to avoiding triggering behavior and helping your cat be happy when you arrive home. Try to time how long feeding and litter box cleaning may take! Evaluate how long of an appointment you will need from there and include time for me t

I've been using Cookie exclusively to care for my cat Tenzin for 2 years, and I would be hard pressed to trust anyone else! Even when Tenzin isn't super healthy, she cares for him as if he's her own cat. 11/10 definitely recommend

Cookie is absolutely the best. we feel so safe leaving our cat in her care. This time, we had a small problem with the house because of the cold snap, and Cookie went above and beyond to help get it sorted. I can’t recommend her enough.

Cookie is always amazing with our kitty Lucy. We've worked with Cookie for years and wouldn't trust anyone else. She's very communicative, always sends detailed updates and photos, and she is very affectionate with our kitty. Lucy always comes running when she hears Cookie come in the door.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $30.00. 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.
