I'm Maria | Cat Sitting in Escondido, CA
Hello! My name is Maria and I have been a cat lover my whole life thanks to my grandma. I have such a passion for loving cats and making sure they’re well taken care of that I volunteer weekly at my local cat center. I take such joy knowing that our shelter cats...
she made a terrific attempt to locate my shy Houdini cats, getting pictures of them.
Maria was able to get a couple of my furries to come up to her on the intro visit which is rare. she may just be a cat whisperer. I am feeling very comfortable heading out on a 4 day trip and having her stay with my boys and grand kitty.
Maria was amazing at caring for our kitties while we were away! It really took the stress off knowing that our babies were in such good hands. We got all the updates for each visit with cute photos and felt so reassured knowing they warmed up to her so well! She really went above and beyond thank you Maria! will definitely reach out if we need someone again ❤️
Maria was great! Her updates gave us piece of mind while we were away. Her pictures were honestly some of the best we have ever seen of four cats. Thank you, Maria!
Maria was reliable & comforting as always!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.
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.
