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...
Laurel was incredibly prepared and fantastic with our cat. She went above and beyond in taking care of and playing with her and kept us updated throughout! We highly recommend Laurel!
As always, Laurel is truly the purrrrrfect professor! The kitties adore her, even the shy one who always hides when a non-resident human is at the door runs to greet Laurel when she arrives. Want to mention, too, that the last time she kitty sat, we were not able to leave a review. We were out of the country for an extended time and Laurel was unable to cover all the days. Another great Meowtel sitter, Ariel, filled in. Laurel took care of being sure keys were handed off and made herself available to answer any questions Ariel may have had. What a team! Truly appreciate this great service - it has made all the difference in our lives.
Laurel was fantastic! She took a lot of time during the initial visit to take copious notes about the care for our babies. We immediately felt like we were in good hands and that she was serious about providing quality care. We have a 9 year old female Ragdoll and another is a year old Maine Coon. She gave helpful tips for us to use generally for ongoing care and during her visits, she arrived on time, sent videos, and followed every instruction to the letter. I absolutely would recommend her for other cat parents out there and already booked her for sitting for another trip.
Laurel strikes again....Amazing as always....Professional, caring, experienced and knowledgeable. Laurel is dependable and keeps to a schedule so my kitties know when to expect her. She makes every effort to play with them and make sure my bratty child gets her Rx despite her often unpleasant disposition.
Laurel is the purrfect sitter for anxious cat parents and I will always request her first if we need someone. She is thorough, reliable, responsive, and detail-oriented. She always checks in to make sure things are the way it’s supposed to be, even things we forget to mention, and she always makes certain we return home to our cats on time in case she needs to provide backup. We and our cats love Laurel 😻

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $39.00.
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.
