I'm Melinda | Cat Sitting in Tacoma, WA

Hi there, I adore cats! They have always been a calming presence in my life. I have spent many years working with and caring for our beloved feline friends. They bring lots of smiles, laughter and love to our days. I understand that leaving our little meow friends in the care of another might bring on some worry for both you and them. I have lots of experience with cats who are either shy or social and know how to approach each cat friend I meet with compassionate care and love. I currently live with a sweet orange tabby boy who I named Miro, inspired by the famous Surrealist painter Joan Miro. In September my boyfriend and I adopted a new kitten friend from the Tacoma Humane Society, who we named Blue. Their purrsonalities, along with the variety of other cats I have cared for or met are muses for my creativity. I am currently a working artist who is inspired by the lovely nature of the Pacific Northwest. I also work part time at the Seattle Art Museum where I a...

Melinda's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Melinda Is always a great cat sitter. our cat who is more outgoing loves his playtime and treats from Melinda! Our more shy cat is starting to come around more to having another person stop in while we’re gone, Melinda has always respected his space and gone at his pace to gain his trust!

This was my first time having Melinda care for my kitties and I couldn't be more grateful. She took photos so I could enjoy seeing their happy faces, and she played with them both which they love and is part of their routine. ♥️ I'm going to be gone soon for two weeks and know exactly who I'll be asking to give my cats love while I'm away. 🤓

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 $32.00. 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.
