I'm Amy | Cat Sitting in Los Angeles, CA

I travel a lot myself and I've had cats of my own for 20+ years. I started sitting for Meowtel because I know firsthand how much people miss their kitties and how happy-making it is to get pix and updates! It really does make ME feel good to give THEM peace of mind. As a cat sitter, I want...

Amy was such a lovely cat sitter. She was very thorough and thought of precautions and activities for the cats beyond what I asked of her. She also made sure the apartment was tidy for when I returned even turning on the fan when she noticed things getting a bit stuffy. Amy kept a strong line of communication, sending me photos and giving me peace of mind while I was away. I really appreciated that because it helped me notice things in the apartment that the cats had messed with a bit and she was able to put things back into place before it got out of hand i.e my cats were kneading their claws into the chair and the blanket over it got moved so Amy made sure to put it back in place to prevent more damage. Little things like that here and there made me a lot less apprehensive about any mischief these little buggers could've done without some supervision. On top of all this, Amy was very sweet and loving with the cats. And they took really well to her. It's always hard being away for so long and Amy made me feel very at ease.

Amy is an amazing sitter! From the moment we met her and introduced her to Pas de Chat, we knew we trusted her to keep our little one safe and cared for while we were away for the week. Pas de Chat is a grumpy ex-feral kitty that doesn’t trust new people and Amy totally understood how to interact with her and didn’t push pets or feel bad if she hid when she came over. She gave her love and attention in other ways, which we really appreciated. Thank you Amy!

Amy was really fantastic with our kitties while we were out! super communicative, friendly, and managed to get photos of our cats (who can usually be very shy of strangers). highly recommend!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
