I'm Pauline | Cat Sitting in Oakland, CA
Hi there! I'm Pauline, and I've worked with cats and kittens since I was a student. While I am not a cat owner myself, I have volunteered at shelters both in Baltimore and Oakland, including Oakland Animal Services as a foster parent. I've since fostered over a dozen kittens and young cats, and have experience with socialization, feeds, and medication administration. I will ensure your kitties are happy, healthy, and safe while you are away. Thank you for visiting, and I look forward to working with you! NOTE ON TIMES: To ensure availability, please contact me through Meowtel to confirm availability prior to booking. I will be transparent on whether I can serve you and your cats well! My availability is largely restricted to evenings and weekends, as I am a healthcare worker. Short-term drop-in visit...
Pauline is very attentive and thorough in both care of your cats and in turn your home. She made sure our kitties were fed, happy, and well rested. Both our cats enjoyed their time with her thoroughly.
Pauline is always fantastic! She takes wonderful care of our two kitties while we’re away, and I appreciate her communication with us!
Pauline took great care of my shy cat while we were away on holiday. She was very professional and provided timely updates and notes. I recommend her services without reservation and would book again!
Pauline helped us out over the holiday when our regular catsitter wasn't available, she's fantastic and Elliot the cat was in great hands.
Pauline was great! She gave me an update on everything she did. Great at communicating. she made my cats feel comfortable with her. I greatly appreciate Pauline’s professionalism and responsiveness.

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.
