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

I have been doing Meowtel in my free time since Aug 2021, and I am so blessed to have met so many sweet, adorable kitties! It truly brings me joy to comfort and hang with them while the owner is out of town. I personally have one 9-year-old orange tabby cat, Dexter, who I rescued as soon as I was living on my own. I grew up with at least 2 cats in the household at all times, so I knew I wouldn't last long without having my own furry friend. He is my best friend and we rely on each other for so much! Everyone I know calls me the cat lady, since I don't hide my love for Dexter or any other cat I meet! I know how important Dexter is to me, which is why I treat all other cats with love the way their owners would. I want the owner to feel ...

This was my first time using Meowtel. Shelby was amazing! She sent videos for each day she came and my cat really was fond of her. My cat never speaks to new people so to see her so chatty with Shelby was comforting! I would use Shelby again and recommend hee to anyone.

So happy with how Shelby took care of our cat, George. She was highly reliable and consistent. She updated me daily with photos and videos and I could see that George was happy. Wonderful job!

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.
