Meow! I'm Jim, a Cat Sitter in , CA

Hello! My name is Jim and I love caring for cats! I live in the East Bay, and can provide service to Berkeley, Pinole, Richmond, El Cerrito, Kensington, Albany and Emeryville I fell in love with my first cat over fifteen years ago when a Tuxedo who needed a home stole our heart. We named her Sammi and I've had cats in my home ever since. I currently have two cuties named Dillon and Lobo who I absolutely adore. I have completed hundreds of sittings and I make sure to take amazing care of each cat that I'm responsible for. I communicate what's happened during each visit so you can relax and know your loved ones are safe and sound. My updates are timely and I give an account of what happened. In the unlikely event there is an emergency I'll try to contact you immediately. We will meet in person and go over the routines you've established to create the most comfortable environment for the...

Jim was diligent and conscientious. Even though he never saw our kitty, who is still very shy about strangers, he came every day to feed her, clean up the litterbox and the stray poop she made in the hall, take care of mail and garbage cans. And he texted us every day. We will definitely hire him again.

I hate to say it because I want to be able to book Jim all for myself, but he is great! I never worry when I have Jim booked for my two cats. He always updates me when I travel and it is such a load off my mind. Whew! Thank you Jim!

Jim took amazing care of our fur babies! I could see at the meet and greet our cats loved him. When we got home Butterball and Popcorn were happy, which told me they got great care. They will complain a lot if they have not gotten the attention they need. They were also freshly brushed. Jim also took care of some complicated feeding requirements for our cats. House looked great when we returned home.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
