I'm Claire | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

I grew up with cats and have always had a special place in my heart for them! I volunteered with FurKids for several years in the geriatric feline department. I have also been a cat sitter for several different families over the past decade. I am happy to sit for cats with any needs, whether they need lots of playtime, various medications, or additional attention. I have experience administering medication for asthma, epilepsy, and AIDS as well. I am comfortable administering pills and/or shots for your cats as well. I work for a General Contractor in person from about 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday. I am happy...

Learn More About Claire

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I love to do meet and greets just so the cat can meet me and I can go over the care with the owner and ask any questions in the moment. I always send pictures for every visit and be sure to give an update on how the cats are doing!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I always take a cautious approach to anxious/timid cats. I like to sit in the room with them and try to bring them out of their shell, but I also respect some cats do not want to be bothered! Whatever demeanor your cat has, I am happy to work with!

Attention to Detail
Vina Jane

Everything worked out smoothly! She sent Daily updates and It was good to see how our kitties were doing under her care through the photos she sent! 10/10 would recommend her to anyone who needs a cat sitter while they are out of town!

Claire was a great caretaker to my fur baby. While Aditi is pretty social, She does like to run around a lot and I could tell Claire helped her expend her many energies. I will definitely use Claire again and would recommend her to anyone else!

Claire cared for our 6 month old kittens on our first trip away from them. She gave great updates with pictures for each visit. They warmed up to her quickly and had lots of fun playing with her while we were gone!

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 $28.00. 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.
