Meow! I'm Melissa, a Cat Sitter in , CA

Hi there! My name is Melissa and I have an older, shy little cat named Franklin who was rescued and adopted from SFSPCA. I come from a cat loving family and have always been surrounded by kitties for my entire 22 years of life. My parents currently have 3 cats, Thomas, Jinx, and Jada, who I often look after and care for. Thomas, the oldest, is about 12 years old and has a lot of health issues which require special care.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
