I'm Angelica | Cat Sitting in San Jose, CA

Hi Cat Parents! Please message with any questions πŸ‘‹ My name is Angelica and I am an experienced and dedicated cat caretaker who travels to you. πŸˆπŸˆβ€β¬›πŸ§ΆAllow me to be your partner in ensuring your cats are content and cared for in the coziest of environments - their own home. 🏑🐱🀝 I have over 5 years experience in the veterinary field. This has helped me to develop skill in reading cat behavior very well. Personally, I can recognize the "velcro" kind of kitty from those who need their space... and then stay aware there are kitties who fall somewhere in-between. πŸ’Š I comfortably administer medications and insulin. πŸ’‰ On top of my years of service in veterinary medicine as a profession, I have cared for cats my entire life. Growing up with cats and dogs by my side I'd love to help care for your cat and give you the ease and confidence to book with me. 😻 πŸ‘ 🐾 ✨ When Humans Are Away Cats Can Still Play: My main goal is to help you elevate your cat's comfort and care and form a trusted relationship with you as a pet sitter meaning you'll want reach out again. To me, your cat's well-being matters and so does your peace of mind while you are away or on vacation. I'm here to be a backup companion to your kitties and offer personalized care and individual attention to everyone who wears whiskers at home. πŸŽ’ πŸ’­ πŸ” MEET AND GREETS: Our Meet and Greet is great for setting your expectations - here's a helpful tip: πŸ“„ Instructions written down or quick reference lists you'd like to leave me are a super easy way for me to make sure I'm meeting any and all of your expectations during visits. I think it's important for you to know: I take your instructions very seriously. WHAT, WHO, WHERE, WHY? πŸ¦‰πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈβ˜πŸ»πŸ“† : In general, I serve clients with last minute trips, with plans to see family or to attend business, and with extended reservations. I'm offering trusted cat sitting local to all of San Jose, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Milpitas, Santa Clara, and even Los Gatos. At each visit, no special requests needed, you will be provided all of the following: - updates on feeding, drinking, play, health, and behavior of each cat in the home πŸ˜ΊπŸΎπŸ€Ύβ€β™€οΈβ›ΉοΈβ€β™€οΈ - photos of a clean and tidy home, clean litter boxes πŸ“¦πŸ“€, full and clean fountains β›²πŸ«§ or drinking bowls, and food prepped according to your instructions, or photos of an auto feeder that is full with updates on how it's running πŸˆβ€β¬› πŸ₯£ I'm respectful of your space and will keep everything neat and tidy πŸ§ΉπŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈ - medications, oral, injectable SQ and topical are administered with care (and prescription refills called in for you as needed) πŸ’ŠπŸ’‰ - weighing cats or weight...

Learn More About Angelica

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I've been cat sitting as a part time occupation for 7 years. About the same length of time in which I've been at least working as a veterinary assistant if not a medical volunteer for the humane society.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Seeing cats of all ages and with such unique and varied personalities.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have three cats myself! Josie, King, and Orti the Tortie. All rescues! We love our former shelter babies. They've all been best friends for nearly the last 5 years now when my last two were adopted.

Angelica was so thoughtful and sent very thorough notes (as well as photos and videos!) which really eased my anxiety about leaving my younger cat, as it was her first time going more than a few hours without any human family member at home. I was worried about whether the cats would eat, so she sent me photos and specific updates about that which I really appreciate.

Angelica was wonderful & went above and beyond. We did a meet & greet before the appointments which helped us see that she really connected with our kitties. She gave very detailed reports for each visit with photos & video updates that really put our minds at ease. She was quick to respond to extra clean ups and special requests that we had while we were away. She was very attentive and played with our kitties and helped our shy cat feel comfortable too! We would absolutely have Angelica watch our cats again without any doubts!

Where do I begin to say how wonderful Angelica is. She went above and beyond in every aspect of caring for our kitty’s. Sending pictures and updates to verify feeding . Cleaning bowls and dishes , changing water and playing with our babies. We never had to worry about them while we were gone knowing they were in good hands. She is such a kind caring person too. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and would use her again!

Sharlotte

Angelica is incredible! This is the very first time we left our two boys without having a family member watch them (as it was for our wedding), and Angelica made sure everyone was as comfortable as possible. One of our boys is very protective of his space and kept hissing at her, and her patience and persistence eventually gained his trust. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and will definitely book Angelica again in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $39.00. 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.
