I'm Kate | Cat Sitting in Aptos, CA

Aloha! My name’s Kate and I’m a lifelong lover of all things cat! I adore their curiosity and independence. They have personalities all their own, and I respect that they might not always be open to physical touch. I have always made an effort to read their body language and wait for their cues before going in for the snuggles. My family often called me the cat whisperer, as the majority of them seem to warm up fairly easily to me. I’m the girl at the party petting the kitty outside or trying to “pss pss pss” strays and community cats. I have a special feline familiar of my own named The Babe. She is nearly eleven and is a little bit lazy these days. So much so that I’ve considered getting another kitty that might like to play a little more often. Alas, she is a “one cat” cat. So this is an amazing opportunity for me to get out some of my kitty fever! I’m a stay at home mom most o...

Kate is an actual angel I'm not kidding. We were super nervous to leave our kitty for the first time without a family member and Kate exceeded all of our expectations tenfold. I absolutely adored our daily photos and updates and could tell from my cat's body language how comfortable and happy he was in her company (he literally fell asleep in her lap laying belly up like a human baby). She also went above and beyond in addition to loving the fur baby - she tidied up his litter box area when he lad a flinging-litter party, tidied up his miscreant activity when he got into the pantry to find snacks, and tidied up his food area & washed his bow / food can & utensils (he is still learning manners). We are so grateful to have found Kate and are planning on begging her to help us again for the next trip.

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 $33.00. 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.
