Meow! I'm Melinda, a Cat Sitter in , 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. His purrsonality 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 have created many personal cat portraits for people of their favorite feline friends. ...

Melinda went above and beyond and I am so glad we found her to watch our two cats. We got updates on the cats and we knew they were so well cared for while we were out of town. I cannot recommend her enough!! We will definitely be reaching out to Melinda the next time we need a cat sitter!

Melinda is the best and we will be asking her to care for our kitties whenever we are away from home. She arrived to care for our kitties at the exact time we requested each time and sent pictures and videos each time she visited them to let us know how they were doing. We really appreciated her patience and creativity when it came to our two younger kitties who are pretty shy.

I was so nervous as this was my first time using a cat sitter. I loved that it was in home so our cats would be comfortable. Melinda was wonderful! She’s very experienced and you can tell. She was so kind and got my shy cat to come out around her and even got to play with him! I received updates every visit with pictures and even videos. She helped me relax through my vacation and was so wonderful. I’ll definitely be using her as our catsitter when needed!!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.

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.
