I'm Shelby | Cat Sitting in Fresno, CA
Hi! I can't wait to meet you (&your furry friends💚)! My name is Shelby, and I've had the pleasure of living alongside my 3 cats for over 2 years. Before them, I had the joy of living alongside a plethora of pets, like dogs, fish, lizards, frogs, and other cats in my family! I work a government job, so while I work typical hours M-F, I do have the flexibility to adjust! This is especially great for families with pets that are on a specific feeding schedule or need their medications at set times. Generally, I'm available for sitting before work, during my lunch hour, and after work. I am fully vaccinated for covid-19, as well as standard annual flu shots. No shoes inside your home? No problem! I have lots of cute cat-theme socks 🐈⬛ I o...
Shelby was a terrific cat sitter. I was out of state for Christmas and her attention to detail and messages with information about my cat kept my mind at ease. My cat was happy and healthy when we returned. I would definitely recommend Shelby and hope to book with her again! Thank you!
Shelby is the most amazing sitter. She's genuinely caring, very attentive, and above and beyond with our kitties! Not only did I think these things of her but so did our kitties. My cat was very happy and calm with her. Even our most shy kitty went to cuddle with her and that says ALOT!
Shelby was very attentive and caring with our senior kitty, Mr. Snugglepants. She made me feel at ease leaving him, knowing she would communicate any changes he may be having. He is deaf and scared of strangers, but warmed up to her during the visit. Highly recommend!
We were extremely pleased with our cat sitter, Shelby, and with the overall experience with Meowtel. Shelby is a terrific pet sitter, the best one we’ve hired. We found Shelby to be very competent and conscientious, and she communicated very well, notifying us before each visit and providing a report immediately after each visit, including photos. We have a difficult cat – older with health issues and very skittish around other people, and we were very worried about leaving her while we were gone for 9 days. Shelby took wonderful care of our cat (Jude), and really helped ease our worries about being gone. Shelby got Jude to warm up to her. Jude never really liked any of the previous pet sitters, but she responded well to Shelby. In addition to taking care of Jude, Shelby dealt very well with some house issues such as a malfunctioning kitchen faucet and adding water to an outside fountain. Shelby followed all instructions we left to the letter, and went above and beyond in keeping our home clean and keeping Jude happy and comfortable. She was even thoughtful in leaving some welcoming lights on for us (asking first) since we got home very late. We very highly recommend Shelby for pet sitting, and will definitely hire her again.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $39.00.
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.
