I'm Ilse | Cat Sitting in Santa Rosa, CA

I have always felt a special connection with cats and have found that I can befriend any cat that crosses my path! I strongly believe that they are a part of one's family and should be treated as such. I personally have a 10 year old kitty named Luna Albondiga, who I view as my child, so I want you to know that I understand the trust needed in a cat sitter. I primarily work in healthcare but I want to explore other passions like this one! Some professional skills that I feel are helpful and that I'd like to share are my ability to follow instructions, multi-task, pay attention to detail, and patience. I am comfortable applying medication as needed ...

Ilse is an awesome cat sitter! She is professional, friendly, and great at communication. Our shy cat quickly learned to trust her and we felt 100% confortable while we were away. We will definitely ask Ilse to watch our cat again.

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.
