I'm Caitlin | Cat Sitting in Oakland, CA

Hi kitty parents!! My 2024 resolution was to become the cool aunt / bff to every feline friend in the bay area! Could you help me achieve that?? I am the parent of 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 babysitt...

Caitlin's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Caitlin is such an all-star cat sitter/cat-friend!! We had a bit of a rough travel moment and her updates were absolutely uplifting and made an otherwise challenging time more manageable - she takes amazing photos and really connects with both our kitty and us as a family! Tip-top notch and will go to again in the future!!!

Caitlin always goes above and beyond. Expect no ordinary updates from her. after each visit I enjoy reading the cutest, most endearing updates from her. How she spent time with the cats, the conversations they had, their playtime shenanigans and the podcasts they listened to. It warms my heart every time. I can tell my cats have a great time with her because when I come back home they are so upbeat and loving as opposed to upset which has definitely happened before when taken care by other cat sitters that may not be as experienced or detailed oriented. it’s a behavioral nuance that speaks volume. Thank you Caitlin for loving our cats!

I've used Caitlin a few times now, & I get excellent service every time. She's responsive / communicative, sends great updates with lots of photos, and it's clear she really cares about her clients (& their pawrents).

Caitlin was an absouletly fantastic cat sitter! we hired her over the course of three weeks while we got married/honeymooned out of state, and she took fantastic care of our cat. she sent the best photos, and it was obvious our cat loved her a lot. she even went above and beyond and would stay longer with our cat (she is very clingy when she’s been left alone for any period of time!) if she had a slow day, even though we only booked 20 minute time slots. she made sure her food and water were filled every time, gave her treats to our specification, and always made sure her litter box was clean. would highly recommend!

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. For reservations where each visit is at or above $20 and paid for through Meowtel, your cat(s) will automatically be covered under our insurance policy in the event that things don't go as planned.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $45.00. 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.
