I have felt a deep connection to cats as companion animals throughout my life, starting by wanting to be a cat when I grew up 😸. I cared for many cats growing up, and as an adult I cared for my 3-legged boy - Stitch - for 3 years. My friends have trusted me as their cat & house sitter for an elderly (medicated) tripod cat, and also to come soothe and locate their cats who were hiding during a house flood. As a pet sitter I understand cats' needs for both routine and novelty. I have enjoyed vol...

Calvin's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Calvin did an excellent job taking care of our two boys. Our cats are very shy around strangers, so I can't rate Calvin on how well the played with our boys, but they did a good job with the food, water and litter box cleaning, then spent some of the remaining time quietly waiting to see if anyone was going to be brave and peek out. Calvin sent regular updates on what they did, and we used our cameras to keep track of the boys. I highly recommend Calvin as a cat sitter!

Calvin was a wonderful petsitter for our cat. He was prompt, spent time with our cat, and made sure she was always comfortable and cared for. Communication was excellent. We felt really comfortable knowing our cat was in such good hands.

Calvin took such wonderful care of our kitties while we were on vacation for a week. Daily updates with photos, we felt safe leaving our kitties in his care and he even got our shy one to come out and have some plays. We hope to have you sit again should we ever have a need!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.

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.
