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

I have been a zookeeper for fifteen years, specializing in exotic cats and am currently pursuing my veterinary medicine degree. My first job in high school was working at a domestic cat-only vet clinic and I moved on from there to eventually become a senior wildlife care specialist at a zoo in San Diego. I have raised and cared for a variety of wild cat species (including domestics) from neonates to geriatrics. At home, I have 2 cats: one 18 year olds and one 12 year old. I’ve owned cats my entire life and am comfortable ...

Lauren's Reviews

Attention to Detail

My cats warmed up to Lauren so fast even though they're usually scaredy cats! Lauren followed directions well, and even brought in some packages for me. She even had the idea of hiding some snacks around the house for the boys to find to not be bored. Booking her again for sure!

Amazing! Lauren sent me daily updates with pictures and videos of not only my pets but also my home. She went above and beyond what I asked her to do; absolutely incredible cat/house sitter and a wonderful, genuine person. I will be requesting her services again.

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.
