I'm Melanie | Cat Sitting in Los Angeles, 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...

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.
