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

Greetings everyone! My name is Katie and I adore cats. Cats hold a special place in my heart. I am a cat parent of 3 for over 8 years now: Oreo, Pretty, and Lucky. In addition, I have experience in volunteering at the SFSPCA and fostering young kittens before they are ready to be adopted. Specifically, I had the opportunity to care for young kittens prior to their adoption date and support them towards gaining enough weight in order to find their forever homes! Finally, I have been able to successfully provide topical ointment medications to my kitties (flea preventative medicine) and to the foster cats I have had. My experience engaging with a variety of cat personalities allows me to determine the best ways for me to interact with the cats. These personalities range from playful, vocal cats to the shy or skittish cats. For example, I allow the the shy or skittish kitties extra time for them to slowly warm up to me while showing them that I continue to c...

Learn More About Katie

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

My experience with cat sitting is positive and enjoy spending quality time with the cats. It is fun taking lot of photos of cats and giving updates to the parents so that they are relieved their cat(s) is doing well. I have been pet sitting for 5 years and cat sitting for Meowtel for one year.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy getting to know each of the kitties’ personalities and learning more about their interests. It is also rewarding when the cats who are shy or hesitant at first become affectionate and look forward to the visits!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

There was a shy kitty that I was cat sitting for and this kitty only had interest in the food/treats in the beginning of the reservation. During the reservation, I continued to provide food/treats and focused on letting him become more comfortable by sniffing me. Towards the end, the kitty allowed for me to brush him and ended up purring next to me. That was the largest amount of progress I have witnessed in a short amount of time with a shy kitty.

Katie came for the second time to take care of our cat, she did a great job, he was very happy with here. She followed our directions and also took good initiatives. She sent updates and photos every day. She was respectful of the apartment and the hours. She is an amazing cat sitter.

Katie was a great cat sitter for our two young cats! they can both be a little shy at first but they took to her right away. She was responsive and punctual, and asked a lot of great questions during our initial meet and greet (we are first time cat owners and this was our first time using a sitter so I appreciated that she thought of things I hadn’t). We will definitely reach out to Katie next time we need someone to check in on our cats!

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.
