I'm Austen | Cat Sitting in Sacramento, CA

Hi, my name is Austen and I am 28 years old. I would love the opportunity to care for your furry, fanged family member. Since I was a young boy, I've always had love and compassion for animals. I have owned three cats over the course of my life including a wild Bengal cat Mooshu, a standard issue cat named Toby, and currently I have a very special Seal Point Siamese girl named Skye. We also have a sweet 10 year old Yorkshire terrier named Oliver that loves his big sister that he helped us raise. I have a lot of experience caring for dogs and cats including several months long periods. I go beyond just feeding them and changing the litter, I really take my time to make sure they are mentally and physically stimulated. Additionally I want to thoroughly respect your home and rules i.e. make sure that I take my shoes off, turn the lights off and lock the doors. Other work: I...

Learn More About Austen

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love their individuality. Each cat shares a lot in common with other cats but also has a ton of their own funny, adorable and interesting traits.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have a beautiful 4 year old female Siamese girl. She is a major character in our life. She knows how to vocalize her needs.

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

By thoroughly following and respecting the rules set by the owner. Other common sense things such as not letting them door dash and locking the door when I leave.

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 $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.
