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...

Learn More About Rachel

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love meeting new cats, figuring out how to earn their trust, so they allow me to care for them. It’s so rewarding to see happy faces, and hear loud purrs.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two kitties right now, their names are Monkey and Bunny. They are very silly and snuggly boys. They make me laugh every day.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

During the meet and greet, we will go over what the normal procedures are. If the Kitty wants to meet me, then I love to give them some attention and talk to them so they get used to the sound of my voice. If the kitty is a bit shy, at least they get used to the sound of my voice, and then I won’t be a complete stranger when I come to care for them.

Once again Rachel was exactly what we needed! Her witty updates and attention to detail made me comfortable leaving our cat post-surgery with Rachel.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $41.00. 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.
