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

I’m an unrepentant and incorrigible Cat person (although I’ve grown to appreciate Dogs via roommates) and overall animal lover whose had cats at various times in my life. Currently I have two cats, a male Siamese and a female Bengali mix who make life very interesting. The Siamese has feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) so I’m experienced with delivering medication and know my way around the SCPA emergency rooms in the Mission and Pac Heights. My dayjob is marketing and I am usually the first person to sign up for the Walk A Human events when the local animal shelter vis...

John is great! My cat doesn't like everyone but she likes John and I don't worry while on vacation. We have used him before, but I didn't leave a review in the allotted timeframe, so I wanted to ensure everyone knows how much we appreciate John. Thanks john, we are glad we found you!

This was our first time having John watch our two cats and it was a perfectly worry free experience! We have an alarm and John navigated entry and exit without issue. He sent great updates each day with photos showing he played with the cats and gave them love. He even did a little ad hoc I.T. work to restart our modem at my request. He is a very nice person and it was a pleasure to interact with him!

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.

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.
