I'm Rhonda | Cat Sitting in Indio, CA

I have always loved cats because they are intelligent, sensitive, curious, and loving creatures. I have two 5 month old siblings who were living outside in a clowder near coyotes, and were gifted to me after the passing of my elder cats, Kami and Sam, this past year. They were 18. I have had 30 cats during my lifetime, and watched numerous others for friends and family, some during long-term travel. I can give oral medications and am familiar with many feline health problems. I currently volunteer with the Coachella Valley Animal Campus and assist in feline photography. Sometimes I help socialize, take care of kennels, and adopt. There is simply nothing I enjoy mor...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have been cat sitting professionally for the past 2 years, though I have done so for friends and family for many years before that. I have worked many overnights, and also drop-ins. I have watched cats with epilepsy, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, and cancer. I have watched up to 9 cats in a house at a time! I have raised kittens, and tended to seniors, even across the rainbow bridge. I have taken them to hospitals during emergencies. Mostly, I have provided companionship and attention while their family is away.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

There is so much I love about this work. I love getting to know new felines. I love learning new things from clients and to see the ways that people solve common issues in different ways. I love giving them affection ❣️ and calm at a time when they might be anxious due to a change in routine. I just love to hear them purr, and know that I am doing the right thing.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My favorite is a client (who has now become a friend) who has 7 cats! She had 9 at one point. She has rescued 6 in the last year (she didn't keep them all) and because she has so many, she has a lot of knowledge about cats, products & toys they like, and is a genuine cat lover like myself. So yeah, it's kind of like a cat heaven in her house!

She did a great job taking care of our cats while we were away. She communicated well, via text during her visit.

Rhonda was amazing. She sent me lots of photos of my girls while I was away, cared for them well, and even watered my plants which she really didn't have to do. I would definitely request her help again. Thank you Rhonda!

Rhonda was the perfect choice to have watch our cats while we were out of town. She put us at ease with every step of the process. She initially visited with us to familiarize herself with the cats and the procedures. One cat needs daily medicine for seizures. She sent us updates and photos on a daily basis. We couldn't be more pleased with her services. We will definitely be using her services in the future.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $39.00. 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.
