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 visit...

John's Reviews

Attention to Detail

I’m so grateful to have found John. Since getting my kitties, I haven’t really left my apartment and haven’t gone on any trips as I worry that they’ll be sad, without clean water, without food, or without a clean litter box, despite having automatic feeders and litter boxes. My experience with John has conpletely changed that and I feel excited to explore more of the world, knowing that my babies are in good hands. John was really easy to talk to and coordination was a breeze. His detailed questions reassured me that he really was thinking of everything. My cats liked him instantly. To this day, close friends think I have one cat because one of them is so shy. But John was able to get her to come out of hiding! I looked forward to receiving each detailed update and see the photos of my babies. It was so clear they were happy and comfortable with John. Now they can’t wait for me to leave again to see 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

The average price for a cat sitter is $42.00.

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.
