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. On March 30, 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 ...

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.

I truly couldn't be more grateful for Josephine. Our cat got very sick 16mo ago and this was the first time since that we'd had him cared for by anyone who wasn't family. I knew from our first meet-and-greet that Josephine would do a terrific job, and she did! I was really able to be present on our trip knowing that our cat Jiji was in her stellar care. And he also loved her! Only wanted pets! When we came home, he was relaxed and had shiny fur from all the love he'd received. Thank you Josephine!!!

Josephine was wonderful to work with, both knowledgeable and professional. Her great communication and apparent confidence put my mind at ease while I was away.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $30.00.

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.
