I'm Laura | Cat Sitting in Petaluma, CA

Hello! I am a verified cat-fanatic and have been since I was little and would feed the strays in my neighborhood and then adopt out the kittens. Once I had my own family the first thing I wanted was a cat for my children to learn responsibility and care for animals. I have volunteered at a cat and dog rescue in NJ for over 5 years where I fostered over 100 kittens and cats and sifted through many ad...

Laura's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Working with Laura was fantastic! She was exceptionally attentive to our cats and their individual needs. It was our first time using Meowtel, and Laura made the process seamless. She provided excellent care for our four cats, especially considering their unique medication requirements. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Laurie always makes me feel like my kitties are in even better hands than when I’m able to care for them. She is incredibly thoughtful, going above and beyond to make sure they are comfortable and loved while I’m away. Both my kitties require medication and Laurie is stellar at making sure they are taking their meds and getting creative if they decide to be picky. I’m so grateful to have her as part of our care team!

This past weekend was the second time that Laura looked after my two furbabies, and I’m so thankful that she was available. She provides the best updates (with pics), and I don’t that my kitties have ever hidden from her. This last time she even took the trash out for me to prevent them getting into it. Talk about going above and beyond!

How lucky am I to have Laurie as part of our fur family! She is such a thoughtful sitter and really made me feel at ease being away from my two older kitties, who are both on medication now. Laurie had no problem with their meds, and took lots of sweet photos to document her visit. Within one meeting, I can tell she already understands & cares for my kitties. So grateful to have found her!

I've got a 16-year-old sweet little fur ball who needed eye medication. She was really great with him! I so appreciated having somebody look in on my cat because he's very very social and needs affection. I think my cat loves her more than me!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $55.00. 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.
