I'm Leah | Cat Sitting in Oakland, CA

Welcome! And thank you for visiting my page. As someone who grew up with cats and currently has two of my own. It would be an honor to cat-sit for you! Each cat has their own personality and it's fun to learn their individual quirky sparks. My cats are named Allegra and Target, I rescued both of them from Florida. I am responsible, on time, strong attention to detail and communication. I will ensure your cats are in great hands under my care by providing them with a lot of love, attention, and following your instructions. I am also more than happy to bring in packages, water plants, ...

Attention to Detail

Leah took amazing care of my boy while I was out of town. She sent detailed updates with photos and videos every time she visited, and responded so quickly every time i reached out. My cat tends to get anxiety and be a bit moody, but just loves it when Leah visits. She is by FAR his favorite babysitter!!

Our cats Love Leah!! As always, she kept us up to date and reassured us with photos and videos of Billy and Gaïa, letting us know if she had any questions or if there were any accidents or anything like that. As an added plus she got out mail and watered our plants. We can’t thank Leah enough!

Leah was wonderful! Keeping us posted with photos and videos. We really appreciated that she spent time playing with our little dude and that he received such excellent care while we were away. Would absolutely book her again - she’s awesome!!

Leah is amazing! This is the second time I’ve booked her to help while we were out of town. She’s very responsible and detail-oriented. I especially appreciate her updates after each visit a and her responsiveness when messaging her through the app. I will definitely be reaching out to her again in the future when we are going to be out of town.

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 $41.00. 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.
