I'm Jennie | Cat Sitting in Irvine, CA

Hi friends! I’m Jennie, based in Orange County, who LOVE cats! I grew up with 10 cats at one point back in the Bay Area, my hometown. I currently have 3 furry boys who are completely spoiled. I have many years of experience with taking care of kittens, seniors, special-needs cats, and am trained in general pet CPR/first aid.

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

I've been professionally cat sitting for over 2 years, with experience both in the Bay Area and more recently in Irvine. Throughout this time, I've had the privilege of caring for over 200 cats, each with their own unique personalities and needs. My journey started out of a genuine love for cats and a desire to ensure they receive the best possible care while clients are away. My experience covers a broad range of cat care needs, from playful kittens that require lots of energy and engagement, to senior cats who prefer a quieter, more comforting presence. I've handled various responsibilities,

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I believe that cat sitting is much more than just a job—it's about building trust and a bond with each cat, understanding their individual preferences and quirks, and going above and beyond to make sure they feel loved and secure. My approach is always tailored to the specific needs of each cat, ensuring they receive the best care and attention during our time together. Gaining a trust from a cat is very rewarding to me!

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

When working with a new cat parent, my approach is centered around understanding, communication, and personalized care. Here’s a typical process I follow to ensure a seamless and comfortable experience for both the cat and their parent: 1. Setting up a meet and greet. 2. Asking questions about their cat and going over tasks. 3. Providing regular updates.

Jennie is amazing. Our cat displayed symptoms that needed medical attention, she informed us and took him to the vet, where he was admitted for treatment. We are so grateful to her. 10 stars

this was my first time using meowtel and Jennie made it a really great experience. she is responsive, detail oriented, and kind. i had to cancel my original booking due to illness and she was flexible and understanding. once rebooked, she was prompt, paid attention to all my care notes, send great updates, and was overall communicative. i felt like my cat was in good hands and i will definitely be booking again. thanks Jennie!

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 $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.
