I'm Martha | Cat Sitting in Lawndale, CA

Hi cat parents! My name is Martha and I have been a cat lover all my life. Unfortunately, I wasn't ever able to have a cat growing up because my dad was allergic. I adopted my first kitty, Peaches, in September 2017. My friend fostered her and her siblings and I fell in love. She has changed both mine and my husband's lives. She is truly our daughter and love her to pieces. We just recently added two kittens (Ebony and Pepper) to our family. They were rescued from a storm drain in November 2022 along with their brother who my friend adopted. We think they were about 7 weeks old. Pepper loves his new big sister and the love is mutual. Ebony is a mama's girl but also loves to snuggle with her brother and new big sis. Prior to joining Meowtel in 2019 I pet-sat for my same friend who fostered Peaches. She has 2 Golden Retrievers and a kitty. I have stayed in their house and brought Peaches along to sit for their pets when they have been away. I have also volunteered at the NKLA adoption cente...

Martha was our sitter for a vacation out of the country and she was amazing with our little Willow! We were very nervous about leaving our newly adopted kitty, but she loved the visits. Martha was communicative and sent lots of pictures and videos. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to get videos of our tentative cat purring next to Martha! It’s clear that she has the patience and knowledge to help cats of all personalities to feel comfortable. We highly recommended her and would love to have Martha come back the next time we need someone for Willow.

Martha is definitely a true cat lover and was very attentive with every detail for our kitties and their individual personalities. She provided great updates and photos. It was reassuring to know she was stopping by.

Martha has been our cat sitter for awhile now, and she is wonderful. we have two older cats, and one has medications that change sometimes. she has always been so helpful and calming while helping with our cats while we are away. she always sends photos, she arrives on time if our cat have medication he has to have at a specific time. She is tidy and so sweet to our fur babies. she really has been such a relief since we have started using Meowtel. I highly recommend anyone who needs a cat sitter to use Martha. 😊

Martha came to visit our cat for the first official visit after our meet and greet, to help get our cat used to visits while we’re away. We adopted our young cat only two months ago, so she’s still getting used to her new home. Martha was amazing! She was very patient with our kitty and helped her feel safe. We’re so lucky we have such an amazing sitter to come check on our cat!

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 $43.00. 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.
