I'm Laura | Cat Sitting in San Jose, CA
Hello there, I'm Laura and welcome to Purrfect Playtime! 🐾 🧶 I’ve been cat sitting for over 15 years and can’t wait to meet your kitty/kitties! I’ve taken care of all kinds of kitties from shy under-the-cover day nappers to furriends with special medications—all kitties are welcome. My dream is to own a cat of my own someday soon and make life with a purrfect friend a reality. Some of my hobbies include reading, hiking, sewing, cooking, playing Animal Crossing, and traveling. 🐈⬛SITTER DETAILS 🐈 I will always send you lots of updates with photos and videos of your furry companion and will be responsive to their every need.

Excellent again! Thank you Laura ❤️
Laura was a delight to work with and I would trust her again with taking care of my kitties! She provided timely and comprehensive updates and was always very responsive. I really appreciated the detailed updates she would give me each day/check-in and all the photos. The kitties’ litter box, food bowls, and house were always left clean and tidy.
Laura is great! she is detail-oriented, kind and loving to my cat, super responsive and very meticulous. I will continue to book Laura every time I go out of town! I have a very cantankerous elderly Kitty who is on three different meds so taking care of him is a challenge and Laura definitely rose to the occasion!
We feel so fortunate to have met Laura through Meowtel. From the very first encounter via message on Meowtel up to the meet and greet, Laura was kind, friendly, flexible and overall had a genuine demeanor about her. This was our first time leaving our fur baby since adopting her so we had a lot of doubts and concerns. Our kitty warmed up to Laura instantly and we knew she would be in great hands. We also unexpectedly needed medication administration prior to our vacation and Laura was able to administer meds with ease. Laura was punctual and let us know each time she had arrived. We looked forward to receiving her updates after every visit with wonderful pictures and videos. She also brought up any concerns she had about our kitty. When we had requests while on vacation, she was extremely accommodating and understanding. Communication was top notch and would definitely book with Laura again in the future for our fancy little lady :) Thank you, Laura!!
Laura did such an amazing job cat sitting for us! She was wonderfully detailed starting with the meet and greet and was so patient and caring with Totoro. We appreciated the great communication, and will definitely book with her again in the future!

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.
