I'm Carlos Mariano | Cat Sitting in San Francisco, CA

I'm a big cat person and enjoy caring for and meeting new cats. I have 4 cats, Oreo, Mochi, Chai Chai and Ling Ling. I am centrally located in the Design District in San Francisco and also in Petaluma. I have a car to get around. I am competent in administering medicine and pills. I fostered cats while I was living in Austin, Texas. I am reliable, on time...

Carlos Mariano's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Carlos was fantastic. He was very responsive to us and great about giving our cat his medications. It gave us much peace of mind while we were away. We’d absolutely have him cat sit for us again.

Carlos took excellent care of our two cats while we were away, and was so helpful by cleaning up some messes that the cats caused while we were out. Great communication and photos too!

Carlos did a perfect job giving Panda his food and playing with him. Panda loves him even though he’s often shy with new people! Highly recommend Carlos!

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 $42.00. 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.
