I'm Kelsey | Cat Sitting in San Jose, CA
Hi, I’m Kelsey! I’ve had dogs in my family my entire life, and after graduating college and moving into my own place, I got my own 2 kittens who are now a little over 2 years old! I work 4 days a week in office as a medical device engineer and would be able to check on your kitties before 8am and/or after 4/5pm Monday-Thursday and anytime Friday-Sunday! I live in San Jose but am willing to drive ...
Kelsey did a great job taking care of Copurrnicus while I was traveling. she provided daily updates, with pictures, to give me peace of mind. I highly recommend and would use her again.
Kelsey was absolutely amazing! My cat (Poot) is incredibly shy around most people and NEVER comes out to say hi to someone new, except Kelsey. Poot warmed up to Kelsey right away! Kelsey took care of everything that was needed and was super great about providing detailed updates and photos the whole time I was away. I 100% trust Kelsey with Poot and will book her again in the future!
Again 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you, Kelsey, for being a loving, compassionate and 100% reliable sitter for my shy kitties!
Kelsey was a wonderful sitter! Prompt, communicative, and detail-oriented! I gave her a couple easy tasks but she went above and beyond what I asked! My cat is also not social with strangers but she took extra time to try to play with him and try to win him over! She also immediately called when the kitty wasn’t where kitty normally is so I was instantly in the loop (kitty was fine, just hiding in the closet). I was very impressed with Kelsey and feel 100% safe leaving my pets with her. :) Looking forward to hiring her again in the future!
Kelsey took care of my two cats while I was traveling internationally. I received updates and photos every day and the cats were well taken care of.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $42.00.
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.
