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

Hi! I’m Nico, and I’m a cat lover! I’m also a general lover of all beings big & small (fun fact: I used to beekeep full time!). I’m based in Silverlake, and am happy to service surrounding neighborhoods. I’ve been a guardian of my senior kitty, Timmy, for 5 years, and have learned so much about living with and caring for cats. I’ve learned how much personality a cat can have and how much love they have for those who listen to and care for them. I’m also very patient with cats as I know it takes time to build trust with (some of) them. I approach any relationship with a cat from an intuitive point of view— I always respect their boundaries and move at the pace they set. As I have been cat sitting this year, I realized I have a knack for helping anxious/fearful/nervous kitties feel comfortable in my care. It’s been a ...

Learn More About Nicole

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I do! I have a senior cat (13 years) named Timmy. I’ve had him for 5 years and he’s changed my life. I never had cats growing up since my mom is allergic. I didn’t know how much cats can teach us about love! I am so grateful for my Timtim!

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

Confirm that the dates do work for me, then schedule a meet and greet where I get to meet the human and kitty in person in their home. I’m also happy to schedule a virtual meet and greet if that is preferred. I will take notes during the meeting and plan to collect keys whenever it is most convenient for my client.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

Be patient and gentle. My own cat was like this when I adopted him. Give them space, but be fully present when they engage with you. Be consistent with showing up and create routine. I like to show the cats that I am reliable.

Nicole was great with our two cats and went the extra mile to build rapport with our sky kitty. She provided detailed updates so we knew our cats were well taken care of through our entire time away!

This was Nicole's second time caring for my cat. She did a wonderful job! She is very caring, thorough and attentive. She went above and beyond to make sure my cat was happy and left my home even tidier than when she arrived. Thank you Nicole!!!

Nicole did a wonderful job watching my cats for the weekend. So appreciative of her updates, loving care, and tidiness. She even vacuumed around the litterbox. 10/10!!!!

Wow, I can't recommend Nicole enough! She took care of Squeaky and Lloyd while we were away and did an outstanding job. Not only did she follow all my instructions to the letter, but they also went above and beyond to ensure my cats felt comfortable and loved. She even brought in my packages and took the trash out . Every update she sent me included photos was detailed and reassuring, giving me peace of mind during my trip. She genuinely cares about animals, and I wouldn't hesitate to book her again in the future. Thanks a million, Nicole!!!

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.
