I'm Carmen | Cat Sitting in Cardiff By The Sea, CA

We've been cat sitting on Meowtel for almost 5 years! We would be honored to care for the special felines in your life so you can enjoy your travels near or far. We are a mom and daughter team, Carmen & Marina (15). Cats have always been a special part of our lives. I am a shelter volunteer and we foster kittens too. Fostering is very rewarding. We don't keep them all, but every now and again, one will steal our hearts or our kitties heart. We have 3 kitties; Princess Heart (9), Prince Waffles (3) -a former foster & excellent foster cat-dad, and most recently Skully Bear - a 3 month old kitten who fell in LOVE with Waffles, they are now a bonded pair. ...

As always, my kitty was disappointed when we got home that we weren’t Carmen. She takes such good care of Chillito and communicates his status with us by text. I highly recommend her for all of your kitty needs.

Carmen was so loving and caring with my kitty. I think he loves her more than he loves us! She sent many updates with pictures and videos as well as kept detailed notes. I feel very confident leaving my fur (pur) baby with her anytime. Thanks so much Carmen for your love and care of my Chillito!

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 $36.00. 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.
