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

I have had cats in my household my entire life except my freshman year of college. Therefore, I moved off campus, and immediately went to the local SPCA to rescue a stub tail kitty who would be my loyal companion for many years! He would be the first of many additions through the years after leaving my childhood home, and while raising my own daughter. My friends and family call me the cat whisperer as I have rescued some with behavio...

Gayle's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Gayle was wonderful with my 2 boys! The meet and greet went well and Gayle was very attentive to my concerns and getting to know my cats. I was very happy with her daily updates and photos. Little Nibbler is curious but very hesitant of new people and I was so happy to see the GREAT pictures of him playing, eating, and getting more comfortable with her. Peter Parker is a love bug and they got along purrrfectly. I highly recommend Gayle and know that she will take excellent care of youur cats :) I will continue booking Gayle in the future.

This was our first time with a cat sitting service - our sitter backed out last minute. WE were a bit anxious but Gayle eased all our fears. She came over for the meet and greet and we felt like we had made a new friend. The updates and communication were great and we were able to focus on our time with family knowing our kitties and our home were in great hands. Our big orange cat warmed up to Gayle quickly and she was even able to get acquainted with our very shy scared grey tabby cat. When we came home they were happy to see us and very clearly well taken care of. I would 100% recommend Gayle and we will be using her again in the future.

I have used Gayle a few times now for my aged, feisty, medication needing kitty. She has been amazing at befriending her and getting the medication done.

Gayle is terrific My 17 year old cat likes to meet people but then is done with them. Not Gayle. She really bonded - even let Gayle pick her up and groom her. (Something we cannot do!) She brought her a toy and sent darling photos and videos.

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.
