Meow! I'm Liz, a Cat Sitter in , CA

Hello! My name is Liz Michaud. I am a professional psychotherapist, experienced cat sitter, and life-long cat lover :) I am extremely trustworthy, responsible, caring, and experienced with cats. I have a background in the arts, and began my career in counseling in 2011. My job as a therapist requires me to be mindful, caring and trustworthy, and I bring those qualities to caregiving for the animals in my life too. I have established cat-sitting relationships with friends in the Bay Area, and I am happy to be of service to your cats, too :) I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19. When in your home caring for your pets, I will be wearing a mask and will practice great hygiene to make sure that you and your loved ones remain safe. For the first 20 years of my life, I always had multiple cats in the home that I grew up in. My family and I saw them through the good times of playfulness and cuddles, as well as the hard times of cat medical issues. This forever solidified my love for cats and equipped me with the awareness of the kinds of care that they need.

Another wonderful experience with Liz! She was really flexible when our travel plans changed and when I somehow accidentally booked the wrong dates. She is always quick to respond to messages and sends great updates with a lot of pictures. Our kitties had a wonderful time! Will definitely be reaching out to Liz again!

Liz was absolutely wonderful! She was friendly and professional and our cats took to her right away (even our shy girl). She kept us updated with lots of pictures and we knew the kitties were in good hands! We will definitely be using her in the future!

Liz is wonderful! We have 3 cats and were nervous about leaving them. Not only did she take great care of them but she even managed to get photos of all three, even the really timid one who "hides" around strangers. Thanks, Liz!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
