I'm Laurel | Cat Sitting in Pasadena, CA

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.” Leonardo da Vinci's observation could not have been more accurate. I love all animals, but I especially have enjoyed living with and caring for cats all my life. I appreciate every cat for his or her own unique purrsonality and like to get acquainted with them on their terms. Everything I do as a cat sitter is rooted in building mutual trust through love, compassion, respect, honesty, and lots of patience. I have been cat-sitting regularly since 2019. While I frequently get repeat customers, I welcome new kitty clients too! I have enjoyed establishing strong, positive relationships with the kitties I care for so that they feel comfortable and secure with me when their families are away. I obtained my Ph.D. in Psychology (Animal Behavior, Conditioning, and Learning) and often apply training techniques when I work with kitties to make brushing and other treatments as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. I love playing with cats during my visits to give them exercise and prevent boredom. I will do my best to provide your kitty with the same kindness and quality care that I would want my own cat to receive. I can never replace your presence, but I will try to replicate your daily routine as clo...

We have been been booking with Laurel for over a year now and just went on a 2 week international trip. This was the longest we were away and Laruel was amazing with our two kitties! She always sends such amazing updates and playes well with them (even got our shy older one to play a bit which is a huge thing for us). Laurel is an outstanding sitter and we love having her watch our fur babies!

Laurel is a fantastic sitter! She is extremely detailed in her first meeting visit, and checked for updates before starting the first visit. thank goodness! one of my cats needed a diet change and medication. Laurel handled both flawlessly, provided great, detailed updates with lots of photos and videos. she even went out of her way to get extra things for the kitties so they could be their happiest, healthiest selves. there is no one better than Laurel!

Response from Laurel on Mar 5, 2024 "Thank you, Elena! I love it when clients tell me their cats were relaxed upon their return. Barnabas, Naomi, and I became fine feline friends. You have clearly done an awesome job of raising trusting and affectionate kitties."

Laurel is an incredible cat caretaker! I’ve been fortunate to have many great cat caretakers through Meowtel, and she is perhaps the best thus far. I was impressed from the initial free “meet and greet” visit where Laurel brought her own detailed checklist she created and took notes of everything I said about the cats, where their food and litter is, their preferences, etc. She asked great questions and the cats liked her right away. She is super responsive, very professional, and friendly/great to interact with. She even went above and beyond with bringing extra supplies the cats needed that we didn’t have at home while we were out of town. All around had a fantastic experience and plan to hire Laurel for every trip away, going forward!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $39.00. 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.
