I'm Jim | Cat Sitting in Richmond, 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 t...

Jim's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Jim did a very nice job taking car of Alan while we were away for 10 days. He was always prompt with his communication and went above and beyond when Alan’s food ran out by running to the store and getting more! He was even kind enough to water my garden while I was away.

Even though our kitty is extremely shy with strangers, Jim made an effort to find her hiding places. He was successful once. He moved her feeding mat and bowls to another room when ants struck and also took care of our garbage cans. Jim is quite responsible and obviously likes cats.

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 $45.00. 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.
