I'm Salma | Cat Sitting in Milwaukee, WI

Hello there! I am the proud cat parent of Lieutenant Soot on the Snoot, the 7-year old rescue who is pictured with me in my cover photo. Besides my time with this fine gentleman, I worked part-time as a professional cat sitter back in San Diego. I have experience with basic cat behavior, caretaking, and giving drops and pills. I grew up taking care of birds, tortoises, cats, goats, and rabbits at my local 4-H club, so reading animal beh...

Learn More About Salma

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

I’ve been cat sitting on and off since 2014! Started as a cat sitter for neighbors and friends, was briefly a professional cat sitter in San Diego, then moved here and got on Meowtel.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to know cats with different personalities, learning how they best like to play (we have the racers, the prowlers, the “lay down and bat”ers, etc), and so on.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

Just one?? I have never met a cat I didn't love, and all my clients are very special to me. Two that stick out: (1) Lightning, a very old little man with a creaky meow that didn't usually have energy to do much other than sleep, roll around on his bed, and grudgingly accept his medications. After two visits, though, he would shakily lift himself up and follow me to every room I had chores in, chatting all the while. (2) Gus, a previous feral whose dads told me that he hated EVERYONE except for them. It took four or five visits, but he warmed up to me, would eat treats out of my hand before I tossed them, and would brush against me. His dads told me he's never been that way with anyone else, so it was such an honour!

Salma's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Salma was the purr-fect cat sitter. My tuxedo cat (Thundercat) is a little lover boy, and I didn’t want him to get lonely while going away for the 4th of July. I’m so glad Salma could give him the attention and cuddles he needed. Salma was detailed, thorough and always sent the best pictures! Overall, Thundercat gives the experience two claws up!

Salma was AMAZING. We have a shy gal kitty, and a sassy old boy who needs a twice-daily inhaler but doesn't like new people getting too close, so it's a tricky situation. This was our first time using a pet sitter since we've always been able to just have a friend pop in in the past, but this was the first time we didn't have one available, especially since the inhaler situation came into play, requiring more frequent visits than before. Anyway, Salma expertly handled his medical needs, while doing everything they could to gain his trust/affection in the process. In the end, he got all his inhaler doses, and the shy cat even allowed some pets. And everything else was taken care of as well, of course. Communication was strong, visit pics were adorable, and everything went as smoothly as I could have hoped. I couldn't have asked for better care from someone who just met our complicated cats. Salma is truly a cat whisperer!

Salma was the most amazing cat sitter and I would 10/10 recommend her! She took great care of my two cats and her communication and attention to detail was fantastic. She sent detailed updates and the cutest pictures of them. Definitely put our minds at ease on vacation! I would be happy to have her watch them again.

Salma was attentive and asked a lot of really great Q’s ahead of watching our cats. She sent pictures of the girls and kept us updated. I didn’t worry at all while we were away. I couldn’t have asked for a better sitter.

Salma is excellent. She followed all our instructions, monitored our cat's food consumption and litterbox, offered to clip his nails, and kept us up to date with great photos and videos. Rest assured your cats are in good hands with Salma.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. 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.
