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

I have 3 rescue cats that are my absolute whole world; Copper, Chasen, and Lily. I have had cats (and dogs) most of my entire life. I also have had birds (wild rescue care and exotic), fish (tropical and saltwater), and reptiles. I love all creatures big and small! Before I became a paramedic and firefighter first responder, I was a veterinary technician. I also worked in police forensics. I no...

Charla is amazing! She was so gentle and good with our 3 kitties, she played with them and sent lots of pictures and videos with each visit! I felt very comfortable leaving my babies with her and would easily book her again in the future and plan on it! thank you Charla! 🩷

Charla is a top notch cat and home sitter for us who is without a doubt, the best sitter we’ve ever worked with. We have four cats, two male Burmese 8-year olds (same litter) and two mixed breed rescues from a different litter that are females and a bit younger. Charla has been our sitter twice before when we were out of area for a few days. But this time we would be gone for nine days on the east coast so we were glad she was available to feed and play with our cat family twice a day. And the rains were coming to San Diego, so I was even happier to have Charla close by. Charla is exceptionally capable. She has our medical references for our cats, knows them by name, goes over their meals with us, tends to the litter (no small thing with four cats) and gives us reports morning and evening when she’s in the house. Charla plays with all of our cats on each visit and lets us know how they’re doing. She also sends plenty of pictures during each of her visits, without fail. So we get to see how every one of our cats is doin Charla (phone or text) to stay caught up. Charla is simply one of the best sitters there is: experienced, great with our cats, technically skilled, communicates well, and makes sure we’re in the loop. I can’t think of a more capable individual.

Charla has taken excellent care of our 2 kitties several times now. She always goes above and beyond to make sure everything is comfortable for them while we are away. Charla sends a detailed description of her visit with tons of heart warming photos. I am so happy we found Charla. When we travel, I feel confident the cats are in good hands.

It is always a huge relief to know Charla is taking care of Zeppo! I know he is having fun and getting love as well as being fed right and having a clean box each day.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $35.00. 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.
