I'm Melin | Cat Sitting in San Diego, CA

i currently have 2 cats, Mika and Pepper, that I am obsessed with! I used to travel a lot and would feel guilty and anxious leaving them behind. Especially when one of them became diabetic and needed daily insulin injections, special diet, and TLC. So, I know how important it is to have just the right cat sitter to love and care for my kitties when I can't be there. While my friends were available to help in a pinch, they can be unreliable since they were just doing me a ...

Melin's Reviews

Attention to Detail

We've had Melin come by a few times this year to take care of our cat and she always does great. We get plenty of pictures and the occasional video. She always lets us know if he's eaten everything (which weirdly enough is something he has trouble with) and if he's using the litter box (which is always good to know). Melin accommodates our requests partway through the sitting (eg we asked her to switch to feeding more dry rather than wet because he wasn't finishing before she lefT). Our fur baby is in good hands!

Melina was amazing. Sasha loved her. Melina took lots of pictures and videos and updated me about her every day. definitely using her services again. Happy to find someone like her in SD.

Melin did a great job maintain my cat's routine and keep him content. She provided good daily updates with specifics about their interactions. It's nice to get real feedback and feel he's getting personalized attention and not just basic care.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $36.00.

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.
