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

It's been a long time since we've taken a vacation, so we were nervous about being away from our 4 kitties, especially our senior kitty that needed meds and is a picky eater and another kitty that can be a bit bossy. Gayle was very reassuring and put us at ease. She texted updates and took pics. We felt better as each day went by that she was taking care of them. Thanks Gayle!

This was our first time hiring someone through and all. Gayle just gets it. She bonded so well with our kitties in our meet and greet. Gayle took the initiative to do things that needed to be done without me telling her and she just let me know of them, I appreciate this a lot . The boys loved her. Very thankful for Gayle!

Gayle continues to be the best cat sitter I’ve ever had! My cat can be really anxious around people, but Gayle has found the secret code. It feels great to leave my fur baby in such good hands!

Gayle is a cat sitter I booked for the second time, and absolutely happy with her every time. Definitely my go-to sitter, as she was able to find a common language with my cat, who has trouble connecting with anyone but me. Correction: everyone but me and Gayle.

We have been using Gayle to watch our kitties when we go out of town for almost a year now. She is seriously the best and has basically become a little extension of our family. The cats love her, and we are so happy we have someone that not only loves our cats as much as we do but that we can also rely on to show up and properly feed/ medicate, as one of them has special needs. Gayle always sends really cute photos and updates. She’s even left us little notes and gifts. Gayle, we don’t know what we would do without you! If you need a trustworthy person to watch your fur babies so you have peace of mind, look no further than Gayle.

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.
