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

Hello, Pet Parents. I am Margaret, a long-time New Yorker who moved to Los Angeles in 2019. I'm a cat mom to Wylie Coyote, a 14-year-old Maine coon, Harry, a big black and white bear who I rescued in Hollywood, and Yumi, a feisty tortie kitten who is a Foster Fail from my volunteer position as 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 setting the right tone with a gentle approach to any new animal I meet. I will follow your instructio...

Margaret's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Margaret is my go to cat sitter. I have a shy little girl and Margaret is the only one who has been able to successfully get her to come out and say hi. She is always very quick to respond, sends pics and videos, and makes my girl feel comfortable. Highly recommend!

I am so grateful to have found Margaret to be the one fo look after our kitty over the holidays! It made me so happy and comforted to receive so many adorable photos and videos of her playing with Margaret and receiving sweet pets 🥰🐈‍⬛ I couldn’t believe how quickly she took to her, since our cat is usually much more shy! thank you again for your wonderful and loving nature with our girl!

Our cat immediately liked Margaret. She clearly understands cats and takes catsitting seriously, so we didn't have any concerns leaving home for a few days. She handled medication without issue and sent updates with nice photos.

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.
