I'm Thomas | Cat Sitting in Hayward, CA

Hello Hayward and Easy Bay Cat Owners! My name is Thomas and I have been an animal lover and owner my entire life. Growing up in a smaller town, I was raised on a ranch with dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, snakes, chinchillas, fish, turtles, hamsters, guinea pigs, parakeets, various reptiles, and many more types of animals. Animals are one of the best parts of life and living! We are very lucky to have cats in our life. My partner and I have four cats at home: Riley, a beautiful Russian Blue adopted from the Peninsula SPCA in July of 2016; Nala, a DSH (whom I call 'Tiny' because of her super tiny frame!), also adopted from the Peninsula SPCA in July of 2018; and we have just recently (October 2022) "foster failed" two kittens that we found in our neighborhood, dubbed Spooky and TreyC (well, he WAS Trey, but then SHE became TreyC). Riley is turning 7 years old this May of 2023 (oh my goodness, how time flies by) and Nala will be turning 5 in May as well! At the top of my profile, you will find a picture of Riley in her favorite clear tub. I am always happy to share pictures of our babies, so don't be shy to ask for pictures! Believe me, I have plenty...

Thomas's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Wow! Another AMAZING sitting! Video, photos, happy cats. I was a bit overwhelmed with tasks so not having to worry about my cats because I knew they were in good hands was a blessing. Thomas sent numerous videos and photos both days!

Words can’t describe how amazing Thomas was with our 2 boys. He showed them so much love and affection and really went above and beyond to make sure not only our cats were ok but our house was as well when we had some random issues pop up due to a power outage. He sent us photos and videos whenever he would visit and it made our anxiety about being away from our babies disappear! 1000% recommended!

Another great experience for both us, and more importantly, our cats! We returned to happy healthy cats. Thomas spent quality time with the cats and provided pictures and videos of our cats that put a smile on our faces. We couldn't be happier with the support he provides!

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 $40.00. 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.
