I'm Stephanie | Cat Sitting in Santa Ana, CA

My name is Stephanie and I absolutely love and adore cats. Some call me the “crazy cat lady” but in reality cats are my passion. My admiration for cats lead to my calling to care and love them. I have 8 cats and one dog currently. Throughout my whole life I have always been a pet owner. The multiple years of pet care experience years have been for family members to my friends to complete strangers. With my past experience working at an animal hospital, I interacted with multiple pets with different types of personalities from being scared and timid to excitement and joy. I also possess experience in administering medication for cats since...

Learn More About Stephanie

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

I love cat sitting. I enjoy the peace of mind of the cat from being within their own homes and not at a boarding facility. I have been cat sitting for about five years.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

The most enjoyable thing about cat sitting is getting the love and cuddles from them. Knowing that they are happy and comfortable in their own home fills my soul with joy.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

Cats that are particularly timid or anxious I comfort them by talking to them. I like to say their name and how precious they are. If it's a girl then I say that she is a pretty girl or if it's a boy then I will tell them that they are handsome. I let them warm up to me at their pace.

Stephanie took care of our two cats while we were away for over a week. Her communication was excellent and she shared lots of pictures with us each visit. She even brought in packages for us and offered to check mail. Kitties looked great when we got back. Thank you !

Stephanie was terrific! My cats were well taken care of, and she even got our shy little girl cat to come out and see her. Everything was clean and tidy, and I love getting pictures every day. Would definitely recommend her and would hire her again! Thank you, Stephanie!

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 $41.00. 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.
