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

Why hello there!👋🏼 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. 🥰 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 an excellent cat sitter! This is the second time we have worked together. The first time was for the week of my wedding/honeymoon and was the first time I ever left my cats with someone that wasn’t family. As luck would have it my beloved cat, Olive got sick right before my wedding and needed medication/extra monitoring. If it wasn’t for Irene, I would have had to cancel my wedding events and my honeymoon. Irene provided such diligent care and compassion for my sweet girl. I felt a huge sense of peace knowing that she was there for my kitties. She always goes above and beyond in caring for our two cats, ensuring they received their daily medication without any issue. My shy boy cat warmed right up to her, which is so rare for him! Her communication is always top-notch; we received daily updates filled with videos and pictures that put our minds at ease while we were away. It's clear she has a genuine love for animals, and her attentive care reflected that. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We love Irene and appreciate her so much!

Irene was an amazing cat sitter! She was extremely thorough in all the duties and detailed in her updates. I could tell she really cared about my cat - her updates made me feel a lot better leaving her for my trip. She was able to befriend my extremely shy and skittish kitty, and by the end of the time, she was out and about and not hiding! Would highly recommend.

Irene was an amazing sitter!! My two kitties can be shy to warm up and I have an especially shy kitty that likes to hide and they both immediately warmed up to Irene! She sent great updates and pics everyday. I know my kitties were well taken care of :)

Irene was an amazing sitter. My cat had some challenging medication requirements, and she stayed on top of everything, even making an emergency trip to the vet to refill his prescription. if highly recommend her!

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.
