I'm Mike | Cat Sitting in Santa Clara, CA

Only 2 spots left to book with me for this Christmas/Holiday Season!! 🎄✨Hurry, hurry before it’s too late, this season is a busy one!! 😁May make exceptions depending on where you reside from myself and locations of reservations already made. Will not go over 15 kitties a day however (individual kitty clients/houses). Have yourself a very purrfect Holiday this year! 🩵 I believe I am the purrfect cat sitter for you! Wanna know why? Well let me tell you! For starters, there is my incredibly deep love, care, compassion and understanding for animals as a whole!I have worked with animals my whole life, specifically cats and dogs, and I love cats like no other! Cats just have such a way into your heart, such an amazing way of connecting to your soul and making you feel truly loved and valued. Cats unlike dogs offer such a special human like connection you can't get anywhere else. Besides my love for them, I'm overall extremely diligent and make sure to follow directions very precisely! In my past I was a vet tech for a while at Mid Peninsula Animal Hospital, so l am very familiar with my way around cats and their meds! I know how to give oral meds, shots, and especially how to properly care for kitties with special needs or conditions! Besides being a vet tech I worked at the Tsar Blu cat breedery, h...

Mike's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Mike was fantastic and followed all instructions to the letter. It was clear he really cares about the cats he is watching. Went above and beyond to care for them. Will definitely hire again and wholeheartedly recommend.

Our cat has diabetes which requires two shots a day and Mike has been great about keeping him on schedule when we're away. Our cat took to him very quickly and enjoys his visits with Mike. He's very good with our cat and seems like a "natural" cat person. I really like that he sends us pictures/videos after each visit so we can rest assured when we're away traveling. If you're looking for a great cat sitter - especially one with vet tech experience - Mike is a great choice!

Mike took care of my cat while I was away at a conference. He did a great job and I fully recommend him! I could tell from the meet & greet that Mike has a very gentle approach to meeting new cats, so whether your cat is outgoing or likes its distance, Mike will listen to the cat and respect that. My cat also takes a probiotic (which always made me a little nervous to find someone to take care of her), but Mike has experience giving medications to cats and he had no trouble following the steps every day to give it to her! Mike also sent me an update every day with a message and photos and videos of my cat which was a great touch, just to confirm he made it and that my cat was doing well! I will definitely hire Mike again!

Mike did a great job taking care of Patitas! This was our first week long trip leaving him alone with someone to check on him and we were worried about he’d do. But Mike updated us with pictures and videos and reassured us that he was doing great and Patitas had warmed up to him! This eased our anxieties and we were able to enjoy our trip! I definitely recommend booking him, your fur baby will be in good hands.

Have used Mike twice now to take care of my fur-babies. Both times have had excellent results. Sends me videos and photos of the cats while we are gone. Cats are happy and healthy when we return. Will definitely continue to use in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $40.00.

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.
