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

Why hello there!πŸ‘‹πŸΌ My name is Irene and I am a registered vet nurse and a mama to 3 fur kids. I have 2 cats of my own, both rescues from the streets as kittens and they are just the most amazing little creatures aren't they? Sully our 1.5yr old, is a Flame Point Siamese, and we call him our brave warrior. He loves to explore, meet new people, snuggle, and go on walks. Our other cat Mikey is the complete opposite! We call him our ghost because if there are strangers around, they won't see him cause he is busy finding the best hiding spot! He is such a playful and silly cat otherwise but can't seem to get over his fear of humans- and that's ok. πŸ₯° I understand that cats' personalities can vary like the colors of the rainbow 🌈 , and I also understand feline behavior. I have been in the vet field for almost 10 years, and prior years volunteered at the shelter and zoo. I got my bachelors degree in zoology and then went on to get my vet tech license. The human animal bond is something I cherish and I treat every creature big and small with respect. I respect their wants and deliver their needs. ...

Irene's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Irene was amazing! This was our first time using a cat sitter and she immediately put us at ease. She was very attentive to every detail and request, and was also amazing with our cats. She even got our shy cat out to play by the second day! On top of that, she is a vet tech and is super knowledgeable about monitoring and treating certain feline issues (e.g. one of our cats is an FIP survivor). We know our cats are in good hands when with Irene.

Irene was wonderful with our two cats. She sent detailed updates and photos that put me at ease while I was out of town. I would not hesitate to hire her again!

Irene is fantastic! She is very reliable and thorough. She also went above and beyond during her visits and took the time to engage both of my cats in their favorite activities. She even brought her own treats for them to try! She asked great questions and was a great pseudo mom - I'm nervous they may have actually preferred her level of attention and care XD

Irene was fantastic - she was very reliable, flexible, and had great communication, which put me at ease. She gave detailed reports of her visit with lots of pictures. She was patient with our cat (who is shy with new people) and took her time to make our cat feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Irene for cat sitting and will definitely be asking her again in the future!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $43.00.

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.
