I'm Jazz | Cat Sitting in Berkeley, CA

Welcome to Cats With Jazz! My name is Jazz, and I'm thrilled to introduce myself as your dedicated cat sitter. With a profound passion for feline companionship, I bring a wealth of experience and qualifications to ensure top-notch care for your beloved cats while you're away from home. As a student at UCB, I blend my academic pursuits in Economics and Animal Science & Management with hands-on experience as a proud owner of three rescue cats: Biggie, Sweetie, and Dottie. My journey with cats began early in life when I rescued my childhood cat, Stripie, at the age of 5. Since then, my love and dedication to cats have only deepened, guiding me to volunteer with local animal rescues and become a foster parent for cats and kittens. From nursing neonatal kittens to socializing semi-feral cats, I have a wealth of experience that has enriched my understanding of feline behavior and care. Certified in Feline/Canine CPR and First Aid, I'm also a proud member of both the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) and Pet Sitters International (PSI). In addition to these organizations, I am currently training to become a Fear Free Certified Pet Sitter. My experience extends to administering various medications, including liquid oral medication, pills, inhalers, topical ointments/flea preventatives, eye/ear drops, and subcutaneous injections. I'm well-versed in caterin...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

Amid the pandemic as a community college student, August 2021 marked a turning point—I transformed my love for cats into a fulfilling job. With a lifelong bond with cats and diverse experience in their various life stages and medical needs, I bring a wealth of knowledge. I have owned cats since the age of 5, and have cared for thousands. From personal ownership to collaborations with rescues, your cats are entrusted to capable and caring hands. I will treat your cats with the same love and care as if they' are my own, while also respecting and caring for them as your cherished companions.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love the opportunity to connect with fellow cat lovers, forging special bonds with their kitties, and providing support to cats in need. Since starting my journey as a cat sitter, the Cats With Jazz family has flourished. The community of cat owners, lovers, and enthusiasts we've cultivated fills my heart with gratitude. I look forward to welcoming more cats and their owners into this warm circle in the future. Serving you and your cats is not just a pleasure but a true privilege, and I'm sincerely thankful for the trust you place in me for their love and care.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I was fortunate to take care 19-year-old Liem, who reminded me of my childhood cat, Stripie. Liem had CKD and needed to be closely monitored to ensure he was eating, drinking, and using the litter box. Despite the difficulty behind health issues, Liem was a simple cat who loved simple things. Similar to Stripie, Liem and I would spend hours in his backyard together, watching hummingbirds fly through flowers and trees while the sun rose and set. When he was tired, he'd sleep in my lap or on my chest. He passed in January 2022, though I still think of him every day and cherish those moments.

This was our first time using a cat sitter and Jazz went above and beyond! Our two kitties totally warmed up to her, and she gained their trust. They looked forward to her visits, cuddles, and treats.

Recently moved from SF to Marin County and was so sad to leave my cat sitter who I had been using for many years. This was my first time using Meowtel and it was an amazing experience. Jazz came for the meet and greet with a list of questions and made sure she had every detail down before her first visit. The cats were well taken care of and Jazz sent great visit summaries after each visit and plenty of pictures! Thank you!

Jazz is a wonderful cat care giver. She most recently created a posting for one of my cats I have to rehome. She has been so supportive through this whole process and truly took the time to get to know Nina and wrote the most comprehensive and kindest profile for her. And she took excellent care providing her with the medication she needed and all the love and attention she desired. Thanks Jazz for all the excellent care to 'Neens', I hope she gets adopted soon.

What a wonderful experience it was working with Jazz! My cats loved her (even the one that normally doesn't like anyone 😆). Jazz, sent me pictures and updates daily; she went above and beyond to make sure myself as well as our furry babies were happy! Definitely going to hire her again.

Jazz was an amazing cat sitter!! She spent time caring for our little boy who needed an inhaler twice a day and other meds. Jazz was able to endear herself to our shy kitty in a short amount of time. She was very responsive and took a ton of cute pics. Will definitely house get again in a heartbeat.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $40.00. 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.
