I'm Elvin | Cat Sitting in Walnut Creek, CA

I love cats as they give me so much joy through cuddling and snuggling on my lap all the time. I have two cats that are just over 2 years old. I love that they purr so much when I give them pets or just sitting next to them makes them relaxed and comfortable! I recently adopted out 2 kittens that I socialized from feral to lap kitties. it was so rewarding to make them from flea & tick covered little spicy kittens to...

Elvin's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Elvin went totally above & beyond in cat sitting for us. He dealt with a leaky litter box (cleaning up the leak AND carrying it outside so the kitties would stop using it), brought in a very heavy package that was delivered, and took pictures for us every day even when the cats were hiding. Will definitely be booking Elvin again!

Elvin is fantastic and totally went the extra mile for us! We had an issue with our automatic litterbox and he came to the rescue without complaint. He even brought out/in our trash bins and packages without asking. His updates are detailed and made us feel at ease knowing our kitties were in good hands. We so appreciate Elvin and would definitely ask him back!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $42.00. 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.
