I'm Susan | Cat Sitting in Valencia, CA

Hello there! My name is Susan Edwards and I am a crazy cat lady from Santa Clarita, CA. I wear that title with honor and pride. Currently, I am owned by four cats of my own. My interest in pet sitting began in 2016 while volunteering at a local cat rescue. My experience there led me to some of my very first jobs. In the beginning of my pet sitting career, I was a full-time sitter with another company. I cared for cats, dogs, bunnies, and other small creatures. When the pandemic hit, I temporarily cut back on pet sitting and transitioned to a full-time admin job. That job has ended and I am back to pet sitting as my primary job. This time I am focusing on cats. My experience spans various types, ages, and personalities of cats, largely gained through my work with the Heaven on Earth rescue. As a volunteer there, I assisted in adoption events, cared for the cats at the local Petsmart, and spent countless hours at their sanctuary, helping socialize the shyest and most spirited kitties. As of July 2022, I am now volunteering for Kitten Rescue, where you may spot me caring for the cats at the Stevenson Ranch Petsmart. Feel free to come say hello! I am skilled in administering insulin, giving oral medications, applying topical ointments, and dispensing eye/ear drops. I have limited experience with sub-q fluids. I was trained on a cat that required two people to administer the fluids. I am hoping to gain more experience. Additionally, I hold certification in animal CPR/First-Aid from the Red Cross, and am privately bonded and insured through Pet Sitters International. When it comes to your precious kitties, I ...

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

Technically I have been cat sitting for friends and family for decades, however that doesn't necessarily translate into professional experience. My first jobs came in 2016, while volunteering at a cat rescue. By the Summer of 2018, pet sitting had become my primary source of income and I now considered myself a true professional in the field. In 2021 I decided to start focusing on cats only.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

It's tough to pick a favorite, so I will go with a notable one that I get excited about whenever it comes up. It is the biggest cat household I have ever taken on. The number of cats varies per booking. It has been as low as 12 and as high as 17. All of the cats are (or were) local community cats. The client has taken it upon herself to T'n'R the entire neighborhood. Some cats are forever feral so they stay outside. The rest she finds homes for or keeps them herself. The last booking there was 13 total. 4 upstairs, 7 downstairs, and 2 outside. It's a lot of work but I love every minute of it.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I do! I have four. "Sir and the Nuggets". The Nuggets were an accident. Sir is my senior rescue boy. He's approximately 14 years old. I adopted him in 2016. In early 2019, I lost my soulmate cat. He was almost 19. My plan was to adopt another older cat when I felt ready. Six months later, the Universe dropped three kittens into my life. Ralphie, Crackle, and Pippi were born in my Mom's backyard. I took on the responsibility of getting them ready for adoption. They got fixed and had their last round of shots just before Covid shut the world down. Well they got comfortable in my home and my heart, and now I have four cats. It happens. Momma cat (Lucy) is now fixed and living her best life indoors at my Mom's house. She sure picked the right backyard to have her kittens in.

Susan's Reviews

Attention to Detail

one of our naughty kitties opened the lid to the automatic feeder. Susan noticed and sent pics. We decided to let them free feed until we came back home. if not for Susan we would’ve never known and it would’ve been a mess. Sure they were a bit chubbier when we came home. but in all fairness so were we! hahaha.

My kitty is very shy and timid. Susan was fantastic at working with her, and also of improvising to make sure she was getting enough to eat.

I appreciated Susan’s updates on my kitties. She is definitely a cat whisperer! The pictures and videos demonstrated her care and joy for all felines. In addition, she followed my specific feeding instructions and made sure everything was the way I left it. Bonding with my furry babies was another goal Susan made sure she achieved. Thank you for taking good care of my spoiled but loving children.

Wonderful experience having Susan take care of our two kitties while we were out of town. She was so friendly and always sent updates and photos/videos letting us know how things were going each day :) 100% would use her again!

I couldn’t have asked for a better sitter for my cats. She is obviously very experienced in dealing with cats and all of their widely varied personalities and quirks. One of my cats is extremely bonded with me and usually ignores everyone else. She’s the only person who has ever been able to get him to interact with her when I’m not there. When I’ve had other sitters he’ll spend the majority of his time in my bedroom, but she sent me pics and videos of him all over the house, looking totally relaxed, while she was there. It was such a relief to see him acting normally while I was gone. Susan will definitely be my “go-to” sitter 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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $39.00. 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.
