I'm Kalena | Cat Sitting in Vista, CA

(New clients get 10% off for 60 minute visits! Use coupon code ALZW8MC0) :) Hi there! My name is Kalena and I am a true cat lover! I grew up loving animals, and have been around them throughout my life. I owned cat and dog encyclopedias and became obsessed with learning the different breeds and behaviors at an early age. I have always found cats to be such interesting little creatures because they're able to communicate their boundaries and needs so effectively, and as much as they love to play and be affectionate, they also love their alone time, just like me! I have dog and cat sat a number of times, and I frequently cat sit for my neighbor and his adorable cat. I worked at a pet store for a period and had a blast learning about pet nutrition and behaviors, and my favorite part of my job was getting to give treats to the animals that would come in, including some cats that liked to be walked on leashes! Something I find so important when it c...

Learn More About Kalena

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to know each cat's individual personality, finding out what their favorite toy to play with is, if they like treats, and if they enjoy pets. Once I know more about their behavior, I can interact with them in a way that feels most comfy to them!

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

I know the importance of paying attention to any changes in behavior that could indicate sickness or pain. I think since animals can't communicate with us verbally that being aware of their physical cues or signs of distress is necessary to keep them safe and healthy. I also think keeping a clean litter box, making sure they have proper food and water are a part of their safety as well.

Are you usually available during holidays?

I am usually available during the holidays! I don't mind coming and hanging out with your kitty since holiday festivities can be somewhat overwhelming for me anyway.

Kalena's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Kalena was exceptional! Her attentiveness to my mom’s senior cat was remarkable. She was incredibly responsive and provided excellent care throughout. We felt at ease knowing our furry friend was in such capable hands. I highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a caring cat sitter.

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 $32.00. 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.
