Meow! I'm Melissa, a Cat Sitter in , LA

Hi! I'm Melissa Carley and I absolutely LOVE cats. I've been obsessed with cats since I was a small girl and have been owning, loving, and caring for them almost my entire life! I've been in veterinary field for a third of my life (13+ years), and although I'm not currently working at a vets office anymore, I care for my own, friends' and family's cats all the time! I have a long time client who I catsit for on the regular as well. I figured, what's a few more?! I recently lost my beloved Bombay cat, Bynx to chronic kidney disease at 18, but he gave us two extra years with my home veterinary care of meds, fluids, and love! I have two other cats as well...

Melissa was super sweet and easy to work with for my kitty, Satsuma. She sent me quick check-ins/updates on my cat which were fun to see. I’ve already added her to my favorites list!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $26.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
