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...
Caitlin is INCREDIBLE. This was our first time using a cat sitter we didn’t know and it could not have gone better. She came over ahead of time to meet the kitties and clearly was a cat goddess with how amazingly she handled them. Every day while we were out, she gave us a photo and text update that included information about our cats’ medication, food, water, litter, and more, and this update became one of the highlights of our day while we were away. She was incredibly detail oriented, even checking in about whether and how we’d like her to leave the key on her last day — something we hadn’t even thought about. We rested so easy knowing our cats were in such loving, capable hands. We’ll definitely be asking Caitlin to sit for us again in the future, and cannot recommend her highly enough!
Caitlin is fantastic. Her updates make us so happy. We highly recommend her.
Caitlin was an amazing cat sitter! She took great care of our cats and it was so relieving to be on vacation and not worrying about them. I appreciated all of the photos and her going above and beyond 😻
My only regret with Caitlin is that we didn’t find her earlier. After years of struggling to find loving and caring sitters, we magically, miracously, found Caitlin, and I’ve finally been able to rest when I go out of town, knowing my babies are in the best hands and I can count on Caitlin for pretty much anything cat-related. She’s administered medication, help me crate train my cats for an upcoming trip, and has been the only sitter in 16+ years who my oldest cat, a shy and reserved boy, allowed to touch him. I can’t recommend Caitlin enough.
Caitlin was AMAZING. Her updates and photos were detailed and comforting. Her replies were super fast, and I just can't say enough good things about her and the care she took of my senior tuxedo boy. I'm usually super stressed when I have to leave him, but I wasn't at all this time!

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $41.00.
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.
