I'm Rachel | Cat Sitting in Albany, CA
I was born and raised with cats and have loved them my whole life. They have their own language and way of communicating, and I’ve found they respond well if you speak their language. (Or have treats). I work in Albany, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Emeryville, Kensington, and Richmond. I’m currently owned by two cats, who are BFFFs (best furry friends forever), and they make me laugh every day. I have experience with all different types of cats. One of my current cats was wild a...
Rachel is wonderful! She took such great care of our kitties and even got our shy girl playing! Updates were great and we loved all of the great pictures and videos, plus she was super helpful/accommodating when we had an issue with our front door key. Will definitely be booking with Rachel again!
I was so impressed by Rachel’s warm, efficient communication, her kindness, and her absolute affection for my sweet cat. We received picture updates and check ins with each visit and our gal seemed totally happy and at ease. Would absolutely work with Rachel again. In the future!
Rachel is an awesome catsitter! While we were away our cats unfortunately had some litter box issues, and Rachel handled it all with so much patience and professionalism. She also connected with our cats right away and shared regular updates to give us peace of mind.
I felt totally at ease with Rachel watching my kitty while away. During the meet & greet, she asked some great questions about her diet, habits & what the plan is for emergencies - total professional here! She sent daily updates of videos & photos so we can see how our queen was doing while away. Rachel & Lily got along great, will definitely request her when we go away next.
Rachel looked after our 5 m/o kitten, Cliff, for over a week, feeding him, giving him his medicine, and cleaning up after him. She did a great job keeping him company and giving him lots of much-needed play time. I highly recommend her and would be delighted to have her look after Cliff again.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $41.00.
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.
