Hello! My name is Deanna and I am the owner of MEOW! A Cat Sitting Company.

My career in the pet sitting industry began way back in 1997 in Richmond, VA. I had just adopted a beautiful Persian Cat from the local shelter and I wanted a job that would allow me to spend as much time with Maxwell as possible. (My banking job was a 9-5 cubicle job that I was ready to move on from)
I was looking through the classified job ads and came across a job listing for pet sitter. Keep in mind, this was back in the day when we did not use computers regularly and if you were in need of a job you went to the newspaper. I saw the ad and was immediately intrigued. I had no idea there was such a job available.
Within a week, I was hired to work for a company called Pet Pleasers. The owner of the company I worked for, Carol Tomas, was a pioneer in the industry. Pet Pleasers was one of the first In Home pet sitting companies in the US and even though she has since retired, the company is still in business in Richmond.
I worked for Pet Pleasers for many years but due to family issues had to relocate from Richmond to Charlottesville VA. Because of this move, I decided to launch my own pet sitting company in Charlottesville, VA and successfully ran that company for several years. I had a team of 13 pet sitters that worked for the company at that time.. When I decided to move back home to Florida, and after continuing to run my pet sitting company here that cared for all pet types, I made the decision in 2019 to transition from all pet care to cats only. Thus, MEOW! A Cat Sitting Company was born.

I am actively involved in the day to day of the business, in fact most days I can be found out in the field caring for our customers cats. Honestly, this is where I want to be!

I currently share my home with two kitties; Mooshi and Henri. If you follow us on Instagram you are sure to see their pictures pop up from time to time.

My inspiration, Maxwell lived a long, amazing life with me! I was truly blessed! unfortunately, his time came and My sweet Maxwell passed away in my arms on February 21, 2018. He was my heart and soul for many, many years and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of him and wish I could go back in time for just one more day with him! but I believe he is in heaven now and we will see each other again one day!

Thank you for reading.
