I'm Michelle | Cat Sitting in Pleasanton, CA

Hello, fellow cat lovers! My name is Michelle, and I’m your premier choice for making sure your furball has the purrfect day, every day! As the reigning “Cat Nap Consultant” in the East Bay Area, I have mastered the art of translating meow into over twenty dialects of “feed me now” and “leave me alone.” Why choose me as your cat sitter? Well, aside from my impeccable references and my ability to throw the most attended cat parties (the secret is in the tuna cupcakes), I bring a deep, heartfelt love for all things feline. Having two cats of my own, one with special medical needs, I am well-versed in administering medications and managing specific care routines. I understand that leaving your cat in someone else’s care can be daunting, but rest assured, under my watch, your cat will not only receive the utmost attention but will be pampered with the finest chin scratches and the most engaging feather wand tournaments. I specialize in maintai...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have had cats in my care for the past 30 years.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I ❤️❤️❤️ kitties and love to love on them!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Adam and Jamie were rescue kittens and they are now 12 years old. Unfortunately, Adam has developed diabetes and requires an insulin injection twice a day, as well as oral gabapentin for pain. He's now on a special carnivore diet, but he’s doing so much better now. He’s even back to climbing up the cat tree!

Michelle's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Michelle is the best cat sitter we’ve ever had. I actually trust that she’s taking care of everything for our three cats, even doing a quick vacuuming during each visit for all the rogue furballs from their epic wrestling battles. It was such a blessing having her take care of them for us. She really reduced my stress and burden with what a great job she did. Plus, I think the cats also really like her. They seemed happier after she took care of them compared to any other cat sitters before. She’ll be my new go-to sitter from now on!

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 $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.
