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 large breed cats, Cthulhu and Hugo, and they are the best part of my day. Hugo is elderly, diabetic, and requires both special food and medication. 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 caring for cats with CH, and understand they often require special care and attention. I work in higher educatio...

Daphne recently watched our three fur children. She was a pleasure to work with and we loved having her watch our kitties. We would definitely recommend Daphne to others!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $43.00.

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.
