I'm Daphne | Cat Sitting in San Rafael, CA

For as long as I can remember, I have been a cat person. My husband and I currently have two wonderful cats, Cthulhu and Dorian Orange, and they are the best part of my day. Until recently we also had a much loved (and now missed) elderly Maine Coon, Hugo, who required special food and medication to manage diabetes, IBC, and arthritis. As a result, I am well-versed in administering all sorts of medications from steroid pills to antibiotics to insulin injections. Our other cat, Cthulhu, is mostly blind and so I'm used to the challenges that come with that disability. I also have some experience c...

Attention to Detail

Daphne did a great job taking care of my kitty, Vito. The timely updates and cute pictures were so nice to see after each visit. I highly recommend her and will use her again in the future.

Daphne is seriously AMAZING!! We left our senior cat Lily that requires medication daily with her and it couldn’t have gone better! Lily is extremely she and Daphne was able to bond with her which is extremely rare! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Thank you Daphne!!🩷

We had Daphne cat sit for the first time when our other sitter was not available and she was wonderful! Great updates and was able to coax our shy cat into coming out and purring. :)

Daphne is the best!! Our cat Lily is extremely shy and she was able to make a great connection with her! I was also very happy with all of Daphne’s thorough updates! ☺️

Daphne has watched my wife and I's fur babies a few times now. She is clearly very much a cat person and loves spending time with our little rascals. At the end of each visit she sends a helpful summary of the visit that allows us to keep track of everything going on. Definitely will be requesting Daphne's services more in the future!

The Meowtel Promise & Satisfaction Guarantee

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations. For reservations where each visit is at or above $20 and paid for through Meowtel, your cat(s) will automatically be covered under our insurance policy in the event that things don't go as planned.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $44.00. 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.
