I'm Elaine | Cat Sitting in San Francisco, CA

I'm an events director, and I live in San Francisco with my three cats and child (who thinks she is a cat). My life is all cats all the time! I have experience with cats of all ages (my previous cat lived until she was 20). I love all interactions with cats - playing, snuggling, brushing, feeding, and just hanging out. I have extensive practice with feeding picky eaters (like my own furry friends at home), and with administering medication via pill (including chemo), injection, and transdermally. I'm responsible, punctual, reliable, friendly, and I believe cats are family members and treat them as such. I have a particular soft spot for grumpy cats who secretly have hearts of gold. My own three cats have a wide range of personalities and p...

Attention to Detail

This is our second time having Elaine watch our cats. She is really amazing! This time our shy boy warmed up and it was great to see the pictures of him playing. She understands and truly likes cats and that comes through in each of her updates.

Elaine is absolutely wonderful! Just a Purrfect Cat Sitter! I feel confident that when Elaine cares for my kitty, she is in good hands. Elaine is caring, reliable, loving, keeps me informed of how my kitty is doing. I am sooo happy to have found Elaine.

We are so grateful and appreciative to have Elaine as our regular cat sitter for our sweet Luna. She takes such excellent care of her every time and Luna adores her—they have a special bond as Elaine has cared for Luna since she was a tiny kitten, and she is so good with her. We feel so comforted and reassured knowing Luna is in Elaine’s thoughtful and thorough care!

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.
