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

I don't know where I would be without cats. They have helped me manage my anxiety for the past 2 decades. We currently own 4! Scout is almost 13, Pickle & Pippa are almost 11, and young Succotash just turned 1. Pippa has medical needs so I have experience administering pills and liquid meds. In the past we've fostered cats and kittens, both for rescues and neighborhood strays. I also started working for a local cat-sitting service this summer, but as that's wrapping up I'll be able to devote all of my time to Meowtel clients. A bit more about me is that I'm a voracious reader and have had past lives as a bookseller and Children's Books Specialist/Buyer. I also love boardgames, TV, puzzles, gin cocktails, comic books, trying new restaurants, and traveling with my friends! I'm currently available to cat-sit in the East Bay.

Amanda is wonderful with cats and very communicative! She sent pictures every day and confirmed that tasks were completed (litter, food, playtime etc.) Would absolutely book with Amanda again next time I leave town!

Amanda is awesome!! Our sweet cat hasn't done great in kennels previously, so knowing that she was able to stay home and have daily care was such a treat. Amanda provided daily check in via ***** with pictures which helped us feel even more reassured. One of the days ***** was "extra spicy" and Amanda let us know she gave her some space, while still tending to her food, litter and water bowl. Amanda even left a new little toy for our cat :) I highly recommend Amanda!

Amanda was absolutely wonderful! It is clear that she really cares about and loves our pets as if they were her own. Marzi was exceptionally well taken care of (as were our fish!). She’s great!

Amanda did a great job taking care of my two kitties while I was away. She cleaned up an accident in the bathtub and suggested we turn the heat on to make things more comfortable for them. She also left them a present which was very nice of her. I definitely recommend Amanda for your cat sitting needs!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.

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.
