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

I’m a natural with animals; I grew up owning cats and dogs. The cat I had the longest was about 15 years. He lived at my mom\'s house so I’d go back home and visit him from time to time. He unfortunately got sick a lot so I got used to taking extra care of him and learning how to give medicine to him. So I’m used to having an extra caring touch and taking the proper time with pets of all sizes. I’ve been doing animal care for years so I’m very good at feeling a pets vibe. I’m always able to find a way to work with an animal until we’re both comfortable with each other. a lot of that come down to just slowing down and finding the pace that each pet would like to go.

Learn More About Shay

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I’ve been sitting with cats for a couple years now. I started back in 2015 doing cat sitting off and on over the years. The past year or so I’ve been doing a lot more and focused on that with Meowtel.

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

Typically we will do a meet and greet and figure out what exactly you want. From there we figure out what time window is best for your kitty. We’ll talk about toys and treats and access to your place. After that I’ll be good to go and start the work and getting more friendly with your cat(s). When I come over I will usually come over and turn on something to watch/listen to. I’ll play with your cat(s) with the toys and we’ll bond over some treats. I’ll also be sending you a report card of our visit that will come with pics and videos so you can see how we’re doing!

Shay's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Shay was phenomenal, very responsive, detailed updates with cute photos and videos, followed the instructions to the tee and went above and beyond with my kitty when he was a bit edgy because I was away for too long. I highly recommend Shay.

Shay is fantastic with my shy boy. Pippin needs a lot of patience to warm up to someone and both times I've booked Shay they've become friends quickly.

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.
