I'm Margaret | Cat Sitting in Berkeley, CA

Hi, I'm Margaret and I love cats! I grew up with cats and currently have one official cat- Buho- and many neighborhood cats I'm friends with. Recently, I visited friends with 3 cats! They were proof that each cat has it's own personality. Leah was the talker, Che the "scaredy cat", and Cleo the playful goof-ball. I loved them all! I love the mix of curiosity and independence that cats have. I have that too. When I'm not with kitties, I'm with my preschooler and managing air b n b's, dancing tango (pre-covid) or enjoyi...

Margaret was great. She took wonderful care of my cat and kept me updated on feeding and medicine and included plenty of photos to show how well my cat, Luna, was doing. And when I got home, Luna was in good spirits. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Margaret was great to work with! She kept me updated with epic photos of my cats while I was away. She's knowledgeable about cat care in general and I could tell my kitties enjoyed their time with her.

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.
