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

*Fully Vaccinated and Boosted* Hi there. My name is Vanessa and ever since I was little, I have always been an animal lover. I grew up with both cats and dogs. Even though I love dogs, I've always gravitated more towards cats. They have this sense of maturity yet playfulness. Also, they have so much love to give. On their own terms of course. I've always had this connection to cats. I mean, who doesn't love to eat, nap and cuddle. When I first moved to Los Angeles, I was only living in non pet friendly apartments. I literally moved into my new place because it allowed pets and as luck would have it, I found two of the most amazing cats. Recently, I adopted two black kitties. Brothers, Spooky and Binx. It was definitely love at first sight. I remember sitting down on the floor to say hi to Binx and the first thing he did was crawl into my lap. The way he look up at me just melted my heart. That's when I was told that he had a brother and they were bonded, so they had to be adopted together. They brought me over to Spooky, who was basking in the ...

Great experience with Vanessa as always - she is extremely diligent & responsive, goes above and beyond to make sure our kitty is all set with whatever he might need while we are away, and Max really comes out of his shell around her!

Great cat sitter. Responsible person who obviously enjoys taking care of animals. My shy furball even came out of hiding. Was confident my pets were in good hands while I was away!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $39.00.

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.
