Meow! I'm Kate, a Cat Sitter in , 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.

I cannot say enough about what great care Kate took of my cats. They were in great moods when I got home after being away for 11 days. She gave them their medicine every morning and kept everything clean. I especially appreciated the photos and messages to update me. I would recommend Kate to anyone who wants superior care for their cats.

On top of Kate being everything you and kitties could ask for, she really steps up. When my return flight got cancelled and I could not get back for many days, she anticipated every need, taking the worry away so I could focus on everything else I needed to take care of while stuck in the East Coast.

Absolutely wonderful caregiver & communicator!! What can I say that I haven't already said in past reviews? It's hard to leave my little rescue kitties when I travel. I'm always afraid they'll feel lonely and love me a little less when I come home. Yet every time they show me they were more than fine. They gave me extra cuddles as though to thank me for leaving them with the best Aunty Kate.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $27.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
