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

Hello fellow cat parents! I am returning to Meowtel after a mini hiatus and hoping to assist in your cat sitting needs. I have to confess, I have a "mild" obsession with cats. I create a long lasting bond with every little fur baby I meet; I just love getting to know their individual personalities. So please, let me meet your kitties!!! Cats are my absolute favorite animal and I believe in another life I would be a wild cat myself. I have extensive experience cat sitting between Meowtel and sitting for family/friends. Since I was born, I have lived with cats and I currently have my own little fur babies myself, the two sleeping cuties pictured below are Lola and Raiden. I am located in Marina del Rey therefore my main service area covers homes in the following neighborhoods: Marina del Rey, Mar Vista, Venice, Playa Vista, Playa del Rey, Culver City, Westchester, Manhattan Beach as well as Santa Monica. With the new Meowtel update I have been able to extend my service area outside of these ne...

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love love love meeting new little furbabies and getting to know their unique personalities. Cats fascinate me in every way and I feel I connect with them on a very personal level. I form a deep connection with all of my kitty clients which makes them all feel comfortable during repeat reservations.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two little ones! Lola is a female Bengal and is 6 years old. Raiden is a male Lilac Point Siamese and is 1 year old.

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

Cats who are timid and anxious have every right to be! It's a scary world out there and now there is a stranger stepping into their home without parents around. In these instances I give them their space, stay calm, and try to use as little movement as possible. Normally (after my tasks are completed) I will sit quietly within their vicinity which will let them know that I am safe. Nine times out of ten they will eventually come out to greet me! After that no sudden movements are required until they feel comfortable. They always seem to come around!

All three of my fur babies LOVE Mallory! I had zero stress when I was away. She gives wonderfully detailed updates, and shares great photos. Communication is excellent. My three cats have different needs, and she spends time connecting with them and she understands their personalities very well. I returned home to happy and relaxed kitties. Thank you, Mallory!

Mallory was so attentive to my kitty cat! I loved that she gave updates on visits and plenty of pictures. She gave me peace of mind that everything was well while I was away! Mallory is a true gem!

Mallory is a wonderful pet sitter that we have used now on 2 occasions for an extended period of time, each time. We found her to be very responsible, caring and considerate not only with our boys but with us pet parents as well! I will not hesitate to reserve her again for our next trip!

Mallory was amazing! We were gone for a full two weeks and nervous about leaving our two kitties for so long. Mallory was really attentive and took fantastic care of our guys, down to the tiniest detail. She was also really sweet and communicative and made sure to send us pictures every day!

Mallory is a lovely person and an especially great choice for Lola as she managed to coax my timid kitty out of her hiding place every visit and get some cuddle time in. Lola is very shy so this was a wonderful surprise. Mallory is truly a cat whisperer. She also took lots of great pictures and was very responsible. I will gladly hire her again next time we need a sitter.

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 $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.
