My name is Melissa, and I am a cat lady! I have housed and loved cats for all of my 30 years of life! I currently am owned by 3 black cats: Basil, Romeo and Noche, which are all under 4 years of age, and one dog, an 8-year-old chihuahua named Gypsee. Basil and Romeo are my furry alarm clocks, while Noche is my secret love, when her brothers aren't looking. I make myself available to the greater Los Angeles area and am very flexible with distance and my time. As a married woman i currently do not...

Melissa's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Melissa is fantastic! She is prompt and thorough, dependable, and trustworthy. We needed twice daily visits for four days for two cats and she was on top of everything. She is great with cats and has attention to detail. We would absolutely have Melissa watch our cats again. Highly recommended!

Melissa was warm from the moment I met her. I had warned her that she may never see my cat because she’s so shy, but I was pleasantly surprised to see all the photos and videos she sent while I was away for work. Melissa really has a way with shy cats! I won’t hesitate to work with Melissa again for future trips.

Melissa took great care of our babies and sent photo updates everyday which was just what we needed while away from home. I was particularly impressed that everything stayed neat and clean even with messy eaters like our three cats. Melissa was even so kind to help feed our fish. I will definitely hire Melissa again and highly recommend for anyone who needs a dependable 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.

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.
