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

As soon as I could talk, I relentlessly pestered my parents for a cat. My parents (begrudgingly) caved when I was 7 years old, and a tiny white cat named Snowflake came into my life ❄️ Snowflake and I grew up together, and she taught me everything about how to properly treat and respect animals. My current cat/surrogate child is named Haley, and she's been with me for 10 years and counting! She was a shy and suspicious shelter rescue who wanted nothing to do with me at first. I gave her space and time, and she slowly warmed up. She now follows me everywhere and insists on sleeping on top of me every night 😭 It reinforced the value of patience, that's for sure! From taking care of Haley and my roommate's senior cat, Taylor, I'm experienced with flea treatments, eye dr...

Learn More About Emma

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

My favorite part of cat sitting is discovering the unique quirks of each cat. Every cat is different, and it's so rewarding when they feel comfortable enough with you to be their (often somewhat strange) selves.

Are you usually available during holidays?

I am often available during holidays, and I list my availability as far in advance as I can. If you're interested in a particular holiday, feel free to ask!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

When I'm cat sitting for a nervous cat, I'll make sure to talk to them throughout the visit so that they can acclimate to my voice and feel confident that I'm not trying to surprise them. If they're comfortable enough to be in the same room as me, I'll sit on the floor and initiate playtime from a distance. Most importantly, I don't rush them - patience and following their lead is essential. Nothing touches my heart more than a shy cat coming over to me for the first time!

Emma is our regular cat sitter for our two cats, one of whom are afraid of most people. Emma, in addition to doing all the basics with care and consistent dependability, has managed to befriend my very very shy kitty! very sweet pics and videos of both kitties getting lots of sweet pets n treats❤️We will continue to have Emma back. She’s the best.

Another wonderful sitting with Emma. She is our go to cat sitter. We love her thorough updates and trust her implicitly with our cats. She’s great at taking initiative and always goes above & beyond. She even lured our one shy cat out, which never happens!

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.
