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 the BEST!! She always comes through for me when I'm going out of town. She is very consistent with her time and efficiency. Pauline is patient with my super shy cat and gets her to come out for feeding! Highly recommend.

Pauline is a fantastic cat sitter who truly goes above and beyond. She was incredibly reliable and always kept us updated with regular communication and photos. Her attentiveness to our Oswald was wonderful—he was well-fed, entertained, and clearly happy in her care. We couldn't have asked for a better sitter and highly recommend Pauline to anyone in need of kitty-care!

Pauline came to the rescue once again for a last minute trip!! She is super flexible and responsive, she remembers my babies and they seemed to remember her too. Even my super shy girl came out to greet her on the first night. Highly recommend, as long as she can always help with my babies 😊

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.
