I'm Carole | Cat Sitting in Seattle, WA

I have had cats throughout my entire life - from childhood, thru middle age, until now in my senior years. I am drawn to kitties, and they seem to be drawn to me as well. I think it's that "cat person" thing. Kitties are pretty intuitive as well. My last kitty, Bella, lived to the ripe old age of 21! She was my "Medicare" kitty, who I loved and cared for until the very end in the fall of 2022. She had a number of medical conditions, so I am now pretty good with giving medications (in either pill, liquid or topical form). I just recently adopted two new fur babies (Macy & Mochi) from the King County Animal Shelter and Paws Cat City. They are quite the handful, and I am loving every minute as I know they won't be little for very long! So, kitten care is also in my wheelhouse (as long as the kittens are at least 12 weeks old). I am a semi-retired professional, who worked in the healthcare industry for over 40 years. Now, I am moving more into my "fun" years as an adult swim instructor, an interior designer, a writer and a poet. As you can see, I have a number of ...

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

I have been catsitting through Meowtel since March of 2023 since retiring. I have owned kitties most of my life.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Meeting new kitties is always fun for me. Each has their own unique personality, and I enjoy getting to know each one individually.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I sat for a kitty with cerebellar hypoplasia. He is the most wonderful kitty, who I fell in love with. He was my first "wobbly" cat I have met and cared for. His "can-do" spirit was truly inspirational! His resilience and strength of character truly inspire me. I was instantly smitten!

Carole went above and beyond to take care of our kitty! In addition to taking excellent care of her, Carole even brought some of her own wet food in when we ran out. She also tried to get to know our kitty's preferences, such as *how* she likes to get brushed. My wife and I miss our kitty terribly when we travel, so we were comforted and deeply appreciative for Carole to take such good care of our Marmalade. And our toddler LOVED the pictures Carole took of her.

Carole has a special touch -- our normally shy boy gave her lots of lap time! She was great at administering medicines and gave us very detailed updates on his condition. Great photos and communication let me know that all was going well while we were away -- I would book Carole again in a heartbeat! ❤️

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 $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.
