I'm Shaun | Cat Sitting in Emeryville, CA

I’m a customer of Meowtel as well and my times away have been that much better knowing that my cats are in great hands. The twice daily pictures and updates I've received have made me feel fantastic, and I would love to make other cat owners feel the same way when they're away. I often take care of my friends pets (cats and dogs), and I would love to do it for folks within my neighborhood and community (North Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley area). Willing to also travel to other areas of the East Bay, North Bay, and San Francisco. Obvious services that I will provide are: - Feeding cats as instructions demand - Cleaning litter boxes and appropriately dispose of old litter - Cuddles and playtime - Lots of pics of the cats from each visit - Text updates from each visit Also happy to water plants, bring in mail or packages, take our garbag...

Attention to Detail

Shaun was great! He sent daily updates and photos of my cats who warmed right up to him. I’ll definitely be hiring him again!

Shaun was responsive, thoughtful and kind. He sent pictures daily so we could see how the kitties were doing. Great cat sitter!

My cat, Abu, has simply avoided previous sitters, but he took to Shaun immediately. Instead of dashing out the cat door, he would hang out with Shaun and allow petting and chatting. Shaun also was completely responsible in feeding Abu and taking care of the mail.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $41.00. 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.
