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

Hi, I’m Lauren! Let me introduce myself! I volunteer weekly at SF SPCA and have been trained in how to handle a variety of temperaments and scenarios. I have 2 cats of my own and also love to foster. As someone who enjoys traveling, I understand how important it is have daily updates of your kitties when you’re out of town. I will make sure to give you peace of mind by keeping you in the loop with lots of pics/videos and daily...

Learn More About Lauren

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Definitely the opportunity to hang out with cats, duh! It’s such an amazing outlet to bond with my favorite animal, get out and about in the city and meet new people.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 1 fluffy cat, Pennylane and 1 kitten, Hudson. I also love to foster and get a lot of enjoyment from that!

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I am easy going- but also very detail oriented. So, I like to meet the cats and their owners before and establish a connection. Go over any cat particulars, locate the litterbox and food bowls, schedules etc. It’s important to me to take this time to listen to the parents needs and let them know their cat is in good hands!

Lauren is the best--my kitties all love her, and two of them are pandemic cats who don't really love other people. And she always leaves my place so tidy! Can't recommend her enough!

Lauren is our favorite cat sitter! She does so well with my 3, including the 2 that are pandemic babies. I feel so much peace of mind when Lauren is watching them--and she absolutely goes above and beyond! I'm amazed at how clean it is every time I come back!

Lauren was fantastic and our kitties warmed up to her very quickly! One of our cats got sick before our trip and needed and extra medicine. Laure. took care of that and sent us lots of updates so we could monitor the situation. We felt much better being on our trip knowing our cats were well taken care of. Will definitely book again when we travel!

Lauren was so great! She took imprecable care of our 16 yo cat Chesterfield. She sent great updates and photos and was consistent in her visit timing. She even swerved up his food bowl area and kept things tidy while we were away. Will certainly be hiring her again.

Lauren was amazing and we are so lucky to have found her! She charmed my shyer kitty, sent amazing updates, and definitely went above and beyond in leaving things tidier than it was before I left. We would absolutely have her back!

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.
