Meow! I'm Margaret, a Cat Sitter in , CA

Hello, Pet Parents. I am Margaret, a long-time New Yorker who moved to Los Angeles in the fall of 2019, as well as a writer and editor. I am currently a cat mom to Wylie Coyote, a 12-year-old Maine coon, Harry, a big black and white bear who I rescued in Hollywood this year, and Dracula, a shy little black cat I rescued when he was a kitten in Brooklyn. I'm also an occasional foster and tamer of feral kittens rescued from the streets of LA. In Brooklyn, I did TNR (trap-neuter-return) of feral cats, and I ran a cat rescue and adoption group for kittens and friendly adults I found. At the risk of stating the obvious, I believe cats are living art as well as spiritual gurus. We humans could all learn a lot by paying more attention to them and studying their ways. The safety and happiness of animals in my care is my top priority. I have a calm, loving demeanor, and an intuition that guides me about each cat's needs. I believe in s...

Margaret was great! Super attentive and communicative, and our two kitties adore her. They were better socialized with each other when we came back! Margaret worked with us when our flights got cancelled and we had to delay coming back for several days. We can’t wait to work with her again!

Margaret is lovely! She was quick to respond and clearly communicative throughout the whole process. My cat is a very independent lady and I could tell that she was happy and cared for when I returned. The texts and videos Margaret sent every day were heartwarming to receive! Highly recommend her and I would definitely seek her out again.

Margaret is awesome! We really enjoyed the daily videos and updates of our fur baby and came home to a happy kitty. She is very experienced and knowledgeable of all things cat. Ours has some oral supplements and it was really great to have an experienced hand while we were away.

Margaret was very kind and established a rapport with our sweet girl very quickly. The video updates were daily highlights for us, and we were exceptionally grateful to have someone skilled in sub-cu fluids!

This was our third time we asked Margaret to take care of our two boys during our vacation. She is very responsive and provided daily updates with videos/pics, and I could tell that my cats are so comfortable with her. She is the best sitter who truly cares about cats. Highly recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
