I'm Valerie | Cat Sitting in La Verne, CA

Hi, I’m Val 🦋 I am a 2020 UC Riverside business graduate, who is currently working remotely out of my hometown of La Verne. On the weekends, I have the pleasure of working with a feline specific nonprofit rescue based out of Chino. Coming from a family of animal lovers, I have had the privilege to experience life always having a best friend by my side. I now reside with my two rescue babies; 1 yr old husky mix (Gia) and 3 yr old russian blue (Shia)….. If you’re wondering, yes they do get along, in fact, the dog thinks she’s part cat and copies her! Val's experience: I have nearly 2 years of formal pet sitting experience (through another platform). Through this, I have pet sat over 100 dogs and cats of varying breed, age and temperament. While my background on paper may reside mostly in the corporate world, I aspire to turn my love of animals and dedication to their welfare into my full-time endeavor! When Val is with you...

Learn More About Valerie

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

The experience is ever developing and never fails to bring a smile to my face! I have nearly 2 years of formal pet sitting experience.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes! I have a 4 yr old russian blue kitty who I adopted in 2020. Her name is Shia, after The Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf!

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

Communication, comfortability and trust are all crucial to maintaining healthy and successful business relations. Not only are you trusting me with your furbaby, but you are also allowing me into your most sacred and private space - your home. I myself am diligent and intentional with whoever enters my home and cares for my pets. So, please don't hesitate to ask any and all questions, especially if you are new to the pet sitting space.

I was looking for a new pet sitter and Valerie certainly came through for me. My cats are very shy around strangers but everyone seemed happy and well cared for when we returned. I will definitely use Valerie again.

My Wife and I were scrambling to find someone to look after our two cats (7 years & 5 mo) for 5 days and Valerie saved us! This was the first time we've used this service and it was the best decision for us and our furry family. Val was very engaging keeping us updated for the whole trip including pictures! Even our shy little guy softened up and she made him feel comfortable. We'll definitely be using Val again! Thank you Val!!

Valerie was a great caretaker. She was friendly, and loved taking care of our two cats. She even went so far as to take our more outgoing and friendly cat on a leashed walk outside. (With our permission and encouragement, of course.) I will definitely be using her services again.

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.
