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 600 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 yo...

Alvina's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Alvina took great care of our cats while we were away. She spent time getting to know each cat individually, which helped them to get comfortable with her at their own pace. After each visit, she would provide us updates and pictures. We are so thankful for Alvina and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a cat sitter.

Alvina was great and so caring with our two cars. She made sure the cats were feed, had water and had clean litter boxes everyday. We got daily updates that always put us at ease knowing our fur babies were being taken care of.

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.
