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

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 is a Persian, and lives up to the timid personality the breed shares. Romeo and Noche are Domestic Short Hairs and are as playful and rambunctious as ever! 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. I live in Koreatown but have traveled as far as Burbank and some parts of SFV. As a married woman i cur...

Melissa met us at scheduled time for meet and greet. She was professional. She took notes and asked questions. While we were away she communicated with us by texting and send pics/videos. She even got our shy cats to come out. She followed instructions on pet care and even feed the out door cats! I highly recommend Melissa and will use her again in the future!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $39.00.

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.
