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

Hi! With a name like Kathryn, I was destined to be a cat lover. My friends call me Kat or Kitty, and I am proud to say it’s because I am an unabashed cat person! My love for cats started with my first tuxedo kitten I named Bingo, a gift from my mom for my 5th birthday. Since then, our family has included more cats, dogs, fish, a pony, guinea pigs, and hamsters. We even lived next to a farm, where I learned to care for cows, pigs and chickens! As an adult, I have been a cat mom to eight rescue cats in total, all having been raised in pairs or multiples and fortunate to have lived long, healthy lives! To me, cats are magical beings. I consider them better than therapy! As a single mom, I adopted my (human) daughter when she was 11; the comfort and acceptance our cats gave to a newly placed foster child was so precious to me, and she is now equally feline-enamored. Now that my daughter is grown up, my empty nest is filled by the huge personalities of my two “old guys” – rescue cats, Jonah and Oliver. I have also been a volunteer with Friends of Cats (where Jonah chose me) and with the San Diego Humane Society; I even head a team for their annual Walk for Animals named Kitty's Litter. :) I moved to San Diego from the Midwest right after college. After 25+ years in event and hospitality management, I was laid off from the hotel industry at the start of the COVID pandemic. This change led me to refocus my attention towards things that matter most to me, like family time and supporting the animal community. Pets are cherished family members, and it’s a privilege to provide trusted care and love when called upon to help. * For holidays - or If you need a specific visitation schedule (for administering medi...

Kathryn continues to be the kind of cat sitter you can only hope to find! She consistently goes above and beyond, visit after visit. And, of course, our cats still adore her.

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 $38.00. 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.
