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

Hi kitty purrents! Please read my *entire bio* prior to putting in a reservation request as I touch upon neighborhoods served, notice needed, my hours of avail & other important info! 💃🏻 —— 👋 I’m Melanie. I’ve been a cat lady ever since I can remember. My best friend as a toddler was my mom's siamese, Mitzi. I had to say goodbye to the love of my life — a tuxedo named Maxwell Wellington on 12/6/20. I found him as a young adult stray September 2006. He had hyperthyroidism, IBD, chronic pancreatitis, hip dysplasia and cognitive dysfunction (kitty dementia). Because of this, I am skilled in administering various types of medication including subcutaneous fluids. I volunteered for years with a LA based cat rescue. This allowed me to help socialize and care for many different types of cats as well as personality types. I am happy to say I’ve been called a cat whisper on multiple occasions. 🥰 I think Kenny Rogers said it best, “know when to hold them, know when to cuddle them, know when to walk away, know when to run.” That’s what he said, right?! 😹 CURRENT & PAST KITTIES INCLUDE: *multiple kitties with kidney failure (subcutaneous fluids and b12 shots administered) *kitties with congestive heart failure (oral meds) *kitty with mega colon (multiple oral meds twice daily) *kitties with IBS & IBD (meds, special diets) *kitties with asthma (inhalers required) *kitties with various cancers (some on chemo) *diabetic kitty (insulin injections twice daily) *blind kitty with a heart condition (oral meds twice daily) *multiple cats with thyroid conditions (oral/topical meds daily) *partially blind & partially deaf cat (oral meds, eye drops) ————— NEIGHBORHOODS SERVED: .:.If you don't see your neighborhood listed but I showed up in your search, please send me a message *prior* to sending a reservation request to see if I can accommodate.:. ————— (MY "FIRST SERVICE AREA" SECTION): Hollywood, Thai Town, East Hollywood, Franklin Hills, Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Silver Lake, Echo Park, West Glendale, southern Toluca Lake, Hollywood Hills West, Hollywood Hills, Beachwood Canyon, lower Laurel Canyon, Nichols Canyon, Runyon Canyon, Outpost Estates, lower Mount Olympus, Hollywood Heights, Whitley Heights, Spaulding Square, eastern West Hollywood (to and east of Crescent Heights), Plummer Park, Fairfax (near The Grove), Park LaBrea, Hancock Park, Windsor Square, Larchmont Village, Oakwood, Melrose Hill, and parts of Koreatown. ————— ADDITIONAL NEIGHBORHOODS SERVED AT A PREMIUM: (MY "SECOND SERVICE AR...

Melanie is incredible! She was extremely thorough and gave amazing updates when I was away. She truly went above and beyond and I feel so grateful to have found her! She knows SO much about cat health, and gave me amazing recommendations. This was my first time ever having a sitter and Melanie made the process so easy. Not only was she great with Gigi, but she's so kind and lovely! Thank you Melanie!!

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.
