I'm Alvina | Cat Sitting in Irvine, CA

Hi! I'm Alvina and I live in Irvine, CA. I work in project management at a video game company. I have 4 rescue cats who were adopted at different times. One of my cats was diagnosed with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) in 2020, and my partner and I helped him throughout the entire 6 months of treatment and observation to full recovery. We had to inject him daily for almost 3 months and provide him with oral and ear medications throughout the treatment process. Given my experience, I am quite comfortable with providing medical accommodations to a certain extent. 😸 Completed over 1,300 drop-in cat sitting visits for happy clients 😸 Additionally insured with Pet Sitters Associates 😸 Certified in Cat and Dog First Aid with Red Cross Here's what I will do for your babies while you're out: ● Wash the food and water bowls daily ● Feed your cats per your instructions ● Play with y...

Alvina's Reviews

Attention to Detail

We are fortunate to have found Alvina. She is the only cat sitter that was able to coach and care for a very shy Bengal cat. Our second cat is very social with strangers and had no problem warming up to her right away. Alvina is the first sitter to show patience and allowed for him (Bengal) to trust her at his own pace. She provides many pictures on every visit and always provides a short update as to how the day went. She truly goes above and beyond with the care of both our boys. Since their diet requires raw food feedings and can be a little tricky, Alvina nailed the feeding on our first trip and understood the process and preparation of the food. Although a little pricier than some other sitters, the proof is in the visits, feeding and videos she shares of both cats. I would HIGHLY recommend giving her a try. I promise, you will not be disappointed in the results.

Thank you for taking care of my cat while I am away. You did a great job: Sending me status report every day and pictures of my cat. it's good to know that my cat is in good hand instead of pets hotel. Thank you Alvina

Alvina is an A+ cat-sitter! She is able to tune in to what your cat needs and really understands how to interact with them. She’s very dependable and she sends lovely photos, videos, and updates. I wouldn’t trust my cat with anyone else. She is the cat’s pajamas! We couldn’t be happier with her services.

Alvina has been my go to cat-sitter for over half a year now. I honestly don't know what I'd do if she ever stopped. My cat is in love with her and is crazy comfortable with her. I had a few other people try to cat sit but Alvina (in my opinion) is hands down the best. My cat has a dietary fiber supplement that she should be eating to help with digestion and she refused to eat it from me because the manufacture changed the formulae by a tiny bit and my cat can tell! But Alvina was able to get her to start eating the new one thru her amazing cat charming tactics. Thank you Alvina!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $38.00. 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.
