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

Hi Cat Parent, Cats have always captivated me. I admire their individuality, physical prowess, fuzzy faces, languid beauty, and napping ability. I share my home and bed with two rescue cats (8 and 12 yrs) and my yard with up to 6 community cats - one who lives on the porch and her (currently) 5 pals. I am experienced in being the Cat lunch lady - curtailing bullying and making sure everyone gets fed. I’m especially focused on cat diets - as my older guy has a fussy stomach and GI issues. I’m always monitoring his litter box leavings, noting water intake, and stomach issues (and cleaning them up). Most importantly, I understand it’s the cat’s decision on how they will interact with me. My primary role in their life is to be their caretaker - to provide clean water, be diligent in feeding as directed, meticulous in litter box cleaning, ready to play, gentle (or firm, cat's choice) in brushing, and patient as they get to know me. During my time with your cats, after the needed tasks are completed, I will be “the...

We keep asking Starla back because she really goes above and beyond to make sure our cats are as cared for as possible. She sends detailed and consistent updates so we are never worried about how the cats are doing. She is great with playtime, especially with our less social cat, and is also great at sharing photos.

Starla is a cat whisperer! My very shy, anxious girl is so comfortable with her, and my voracious boy LOVES the treats she brings. She sends great updates and photos/videos, and she remembers so many details about them. Starla is very conscientious and affectionate, and gives me a lot of peace when I travel for work. She also has great advice about cat-care, and I trust her expertise.

Starla is super thoughtful and patient! She is really great about communicating and sending photos. She brings lots of treats and toys (and is conscientious about cleaning the toys between cats), and she's very knowledgeable about cats. I appreciate having her take care of my cats!

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 $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.
