I'm Taylor | Cat Sitting in San Jose, CA
I have always had a “thing” for animals in general, but cats have always been a type of animal that I closely relate to. I enjoy their spunk, willingness to express exactly what they want, and very obvious body language cues. I LOVE having something to care for and it would help me feel closer to cats again after my longtime buddy, Alex, died of old age. I have a kitty named Winston (8, on banner) whom I adopted at age 7 and a kitty named Eleanor (3) that we found as a baby on the street who I share with my longtime boyfriend. I also have an Aussie puppy named Toby! I have a mainly open schedule as I am a full-time behavioral science student at SJSU and would be very willing to adjust my schedule for any cat who needs it. I have experience with medications, insulin injections and topicals as well as with cats of all personality types with a knack for reading their energy. I also have a background in plant care, so I am more than willing to ...
Taylor has speedy response times. She's dependable and kept everything nice and tidy. She's very sociable and loves cats.
Taylor is my go-to cat sitter, and I (and my kitties) absolutely adore her. She adapts easily to the needs of each cat, and it’s easy to see how much she cares. She’s always willing to go above and beyond to make sure each cat is well taken care of. For example, one of my cats started a medication shortly before I went out of town. Not only did Taylor enthusiastically agree to give him the med, but she also experimented with different strategies for administration so that I would be better equipped to give it to him when I got home. ❤️
Taylor did a great job of taking care of our cats while we were out of town for a long weekend. She’s very thorough and responsive, which really gives us peace of mind. She not only expertly administered insulin to my shy & blind 19-year-old kitty, but also spent extra time earning her trust and brushing her while we were away!
As usual, Taylor was lovely, attentive, and thorough. :)
Took great care of Sesame and was able to cuddle with him lots even though he was feeling a little irritated from his fleas :)

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $41.00.
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.
