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

I have always had a love for cats since I was a child. Their individuality, their grace, and the memes! I am fascinated by their adorable and quirky behavior. While I don't have a cat of my own, I have taken care of the cats of my friends and clients and have always enjoyed their company. As a cat sitter, I take care of cats with love and attention. I understand that each cat is unique and has their own personality and needs. I make sure to follow the specific care instructions provided by their owners and pay close attention to their behavior to ensure they are happy and comfortable while in my care. I am patient and gentle with all cats, and I enjoy spending time with the...

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

Spending the holidays with two senior cats was such a memorable experience for me. With my family overseas, I'm used to the solo holiday routine. So it was a nice change of pace to be with the little ones. One of the cats was a bit reserved at first, but I got to see her gradually warm up and bond with me. The other cat was a laid-back buddy who always kept my feet warm at night. I loved relaxing with them on the sofa at the end of the day, sipping hot tea while we enjoyed some classical music and holiday-themed cat TV.

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

I observe their body language and respect their boundaries. Cats are sensitive souls so I aim to minimize any potential stress. I make a conscious effort to be unobtrusive as I move about. I prefer to sit on the floor to avoid looming over them. I refrain from approaching shy cats directly. I've found that giving them space and looking away can be helpful. The rule of thumb: let the cats come to you in their own time. My clients have also told me that I have a calm energy.

Nicolette was a highly attentive and conscientious cat sitter! My kitties are fairly finicky when it comes to what they eat, and she nailed their menu. Her daily updates were amazing - the details along with action shots. Felt like I was there! Nicolette was diligent with all aspects of maintaining their routine. Overall, she made me feel comfortable being away. I couldn't recommend Nicolette enough!

Nicolette was a wonderful cat sitter. Was able to give great care on very short notice and was able to add a few days when my trip had to be extended. Thorough updates and multiple photos each day. Extremely satisfied with the level of service.

Nicolette took great care of my 2 cats for the week. She sent photos and wrote detailed notes of how the cats were everyday. She was very attentive to their needs and paid close attention to them. I honestly couldn’t have hoped for anyone better to trust my cats with.

I’ve used Nicolette twice now and she’s fantastic! She always sends plenty of pictures and gives very thorough updates. KurtCobain can be easily over stimulated which causes him to act out and she handled him with nothing but kindness. 10/10!

Nicolette was amazing! It’s my first time using a sitter app so was a little hesitant but Nicolette proved to be very capable of taking care of our senior kitty! She followed my complex instructions exactly and sent so many pictures. She was able to do everything without a problem and I would definitely use her 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.

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.
