I'm Nicole | Cat Sitting in Encino, CA

**Fully vaccinated, including booster** Hi, I'm Nicole and I have been pet sitting for over 20 years. I have 5 cats of my own, a big dog and 2 teenagers. As a lifelong cat parent, I always worried about leaving my cats at home when I traveled, until I found someone I trusted to watch them. I would love to give y...

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Prior to my current crew, I only ever had two cats at a time. Now we have five! The last one was a foster fail, but we couldn’t help ourselves. We have Pin, Kevin, Alice, Cleo, and Loki.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Don’t be shy about asking questions and be honest if your cat has any special needs. Some cats are very low maintenance and others are not, and that’s ok! The more information you can give your cat sitter, the more successful the visits will be. For example, if you have a kitty who gets stressed when you leave town and may go potty somewhere other than litter box, be honest with your cat sitter so he/she knows to survey the house for potty accidents. That’s only one example, but don’t be embarrassed to talk to your sitter about anything you are worried about.

Are you usually available during holidays?

I am usually available during most holidays. I have grown children and a husband, who doesn’t like to travel, lol, so I stay close to home most of the time.

I have used Nicole a few times and she is great! She is responsive and very responsible. Each time she visits she provides a report and photos. I have a few very shy cats — 1 of them now comes out of hiding when Nicole comes. I’m hopeful that the “invisible kitty” will make an appearance the next time Nicole comes to feed my cats, etc. I highly recommend Nicole — she will take good care of your cat(s) while you are away!!

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 $42.00. 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.
