I'm Josephine | Cat Sitting in Seattle, WA

Hello and my name is Josephine and I live on Capitol Hill. Thanks for checking out my listing. Diabetic cats and cats who need a little more care will be prioritized and my current clients will also be prioritized. Please message before you make a reservation with me and we can explore details so I can can respond to you and your kitty needs 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 dog. Last year, my cat Pascal crossed the rainbow bridge. He was diabetic and finally it was the diabetes and perhaps GI failure that got him. 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 alon...

I had a cat parent who was so detailed and a cat who just wanted to sit on my lap for the whole drop in! It was a lovely experience for me as a cat sitter and I can tell the cat loved me too.

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

Hire a cat sitter who would look after your cats the same way they take care of their own!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I respect their space and boundaries. I let them come to me when they are ready for pets and loves.

Josephine's Reviews

Attention to Detail

I want to start by saying that I was BEYOND anxious to leave my girls, Red and Maisie, for this trip. Red has some health issues so I wasn’t sure she’d be getting the same level of care if I wasn’t there. Finding Josephine on here and seeing how amazing she was during our meet and greet put me at ease. Both of my girls were treated like QUEENS and got the most loving care and attention from Josephine during my time away. She was incredibly thorough about her trips to see them, would always send me photos while she was at our place and even made the apartment more cat-friendly in ways I had never thought of. I was even getting litter box updates letting me know how many clumps were in each box… it was a dream come true for me as a cat parent. She made all of us feel safe and just truly went above and beyond for me and my girls. I can't recommend her enough and will certainly reach out in the future. Thank you, Josephine!!!

I always feel emotional when we get home because Josephine just takes SUCH good care of our kitty, Jiji. I really don’t know how we got so lucky. Words can’t express how grateful we are for her loving care!

Josephine was great when watching over my fur babies over the holidays! She promptly sent multiple pictures and updates when she was with them, made sure that my cat with diabetes got his meds and glucose measures done, fed both of my cats, and kept the place clean and litter boxes tidy. She was really open with communication and even had some suggestions to improve my cat's condition since she has so much experience with cat diabetes, and also she was friendly to the cats and I could see how much they were opening up to her too. Would recommend her 100/100 especially if you have a kitty with special medical needs. Thank you so much Josephine!

Josephine was truly a gift for my fiancee and I who needed an urgent cat-sitter to help care for my diabetic cat on insulin injections. Josephine was very responsive, professional, and interested in assisting in any way she could. She seemed to get along well with our cat and was able to confidently provided her much needed insulin injections while we were away. She was responsive to our messages and sent daily updates and pictures of our little one. I would love to work with Josephine again in the future and trust her with the care of my pets.

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

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.
