I'm Caitlin | Cat Sitting in Oakland, CA

I own two rescue cats, Mushroom and Sprankers, and both are special needs. Mushroom has terrible allergies that I attend to on a daily basis, and Sprankers is FIV+ so needless to say every time I hear a cough or a sneeze I instantly become a helicopter parent. I worked for Vans as a store manager for 12+ years, and learned a myriad of useful skills there that I can translate to being the best babysitter for your kitties ... time management, multi-tasking, how to stay cool and col...

Attention to Detail

Caitlin always takes amazing care of my two kitties! They are very shy with strangers, but she always manages to get them out for pets and playtime. Her daily updates always provides great photos of food/water/catbox as well as fun playtime and treat photos.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $42.00.

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.
