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

Hi there! My name is Michelle, and I'm a cat lover living in San Diego. My partner and I have three kitties, Quinoa (6 years old), Sesame (2 years old), and our newest addition Hazelnut (1 year old)—we're big fans of cats named after food! I've always been a cat lady at heart, and jumped at the chance to adopt as soon as I had the opportunity. My cats are the joy of my life, and I can't imagine ever being without a feline companion. I love cats of all ages and temperaments, and it's my goal to make your time away as stress-free as possible. I have experience fostering kittens for a rescue and cat-sitting for clients, as well as some basic medication experience (liquid medication by syringe). While I am located in Downtown San Diego, I am able to travel throughout most of San Diego; please s...

Michelle was amazing! it was our first time with her and my 3 kitties took to her straight away - even our one cat who is kind of mean and hates everyone! will definitely book her again:-)

Needed a last minute cat sitter for my mom's cat for a surprise trip to Japan. Michelle was able to do the meet and greet on short notice. Gracie is a super shy cat and Michelle was able to win her over and send pics during our trip. Michelle is very responsive and was easy to work with. Will definitely be reaching out to Michelle again for any cat sitting needs!

This was our first experience with a cat sitter from a company, and Michelle was great! She is friendly, reliable, took notes, and followed instructions. We received plenty of updates on our kitty. If we have to use a sitter in the future, we would be happy to reserve Michelle again.

Michelle was reliable and kind. I felt secure knowing my cat was receiving attention and care while I was away along with lots of photos to see how she was enjoying the visits!

Michelle was an outstanding pet sitter during my recent thanksgiving trip. She was extremely friendly and communicative throughout the whole process and sent many updates and photos/videos during her visits. She really made the entire process easy. I would definitely hire again and highly recommend.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $36.00. 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.
