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

Hello and my name is Josephine and I live on Capitol Hill. Thanks for checking out my listing. Please message before you make a reservation with me and we can explore details so I can can respond to you and your kitty partner promptly! I have had cats since college and they were always rescues and from the shelters. I work from home for a local non profit and I have been living on Capitol Hill since 2003. In my spare time when I am not helping humans, I am caring for my senior diabetic cat and a senior dog. I used to foster dogs and now that I have two senior pets, I am pausing on fostering for now. Being around animals brings me so much joy! My experience with cats ranges from caring for them when they are healthy and giving medications when they not feeling their best. I have had so many rescue cats, I know their behaviors when they are playful or when they are nervous and want to be left alone until they get to know me better. I am an experienced cat lover and owner. I have a senior d...

Josephine was the absolute best. Our cat loved her and the detailed updates and multiple videos/ photos she sent every day were amazing. Josephine even braved the infamous ice storm to take care of our cat. Highly recommend.

Josephine is the best of the best! I found her in a time of desperation, as our usual boarding location was completely booked for the Christmas holiday-- and I'm SO glad I did! She clearly has a true love and appreciation for the furry friends she's looks after, and I could immediately sense this during our initial meet and greet. Not only did this immediately ease my nerves about leaving my 10 year old cat, Jupiter, for about 10 days-- but it also assured me that Jupiter was in excellent hands in the unlikely case that something were to go wrong while I was away. Josephine made sure to get all the details about Jupiter's care in order, and didn't leave any stone unturned, which only highlights her experience, and her dedication to our pets. I was particularly impressed when we figured out that the key set I'd initially given her wasn't working! I was so thankful both then and now for her coming back to my apartment after our first meeting to test the set of keys prior to my leaving! I can't imagine the chaos that would have ensued had she not had that idea. While I was away, she sent wonderful pictures and videos of Jupiter along with detailed reports on any litterbox issues, apartment temperature/environment updates and overall status updates. I never once felt out of the loop, which is something I'm sure every pet parent can appreciate! Aside from the excellent care she provides, Josephine is also extremely kind and patient-- both to humans and to animals! I really enjoyed chatting with her and I knew Jupiter would pick up on her calm and positive energy. Upon my return home, Jupiter was relaxed, happy, and even seemed a little disappointed that it was me walking through the door instead of Josephine! I recommend Josephine very highly to anyone in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle who needs attentive, thorough, gentle and consistent cat care, and I'll be sure to reach out to her again when my Jupiter needs looking after!

It was such a pleasant experience to have Josephine taking care of my cat. The communication was smooth, and she’s genuinely caring for Bo (my cat). She went out of her way to buy kibbles for Bo, and built a lovely bond with my cat, who’s usually very shy towards strangers.

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.
