I'm Kayla | Cat Sitting in Van Nuys, CA

***Dear returning clients, It might appear that my sitter rates have increased but I assure you that I have not increased my rates in any way! The change in numbers are due to a new law passed where companies have to show the service fees upfront instead of during checkout. So, the rates on my listing are now showing the total cost: my usual rates + the Meowtel service fees. ***After completing your first booking with me, you’ll receive a discount on 20min drop-ins for life! 😺🐾 ***I am currently available: WEEKDAYS (MON-FRI): Morning visits between 6am - 7am Evening visits between 6pm - 7pm WEEKENDS (SAT & SUN): Anytime OVERNIGHTS: Saturdays only Greetings! My name is Kayla but my entire family calls me Kiki! I am a 32yr old cookie cutter manufacturer in Van Nuys, CA who is very passionate about my feline friends! A quick bit of cat history on myself, when I was 8 years old my parents got my siblings and I our first cat and dog. I immediately became a cat girl and still to this day my mom buys me anything leopard print. My great-grandmother loved cats and opened her home in Chicago to hundreds of them. She fed them all and gave th...

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Always read reviews! On Meowtel, the only way someone can leave a review is if a customer makes a reservation and then that reservation is completed by the sitter. So, the reviews are honest and can provide great insight into the reputation of the cat sitter. I also would say to hire a cat sitter who either currently owns or has had cats at some point in time because, well… they just get it! 😹

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

Once a booking is confirmed, I will reach out to schedule a Meet and Greet with you where I will stop by your residence and discuss all care details, exchange keys (if applicable) and of course so I can meet yourself and the cat(s)! During that time, I can also answer any questions or concerns you may have. If a booking is last minute or if you just prefer to do things virtually, that is no problem at all! We can conduct a Meet and Greet via Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or FaceTime. 👍

Are you usually available during holidays?

This year I will be available for the holidays! (Nov, Dec and Jan) Be sure to book early! 🎉

Lorenzo

Kayla (Kiki) was amazing. She was super easy to communicate with and provided awesome photos of the kitties while we were away. She also was great with the cats and was able to provide them their medications. Thank you so much! Will definitely hire again. 😎

Kayla is such a wonderful sitter for our cats. Her pictures and videos have so much personality and our babies really love her. Responses are speedy/professional but contain so much care. Highly recommend Kayla for cat-sitting!

Kayla was attentive to our every request and showed our kitties genuine affection with her gentle touch. Our scaredy cats warmed up to her right away! She gave lots of updates on every visit and followed our exact instructions. I would book her with full confidence any time in the future! The best sitter we\'ve had.

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 $43.00. 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.
