I'm Sarah | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

Hello and thanks for taking the time to read my profile! About me: I'm a proud cat-mom to two felines I adopted from local shelters. My other job is in people-care, but I believe cats are the absolute best pets on the planet, and I truly love caring for them whenever I can. Why you should consider hiring me? I... - Enjoy learning cats' quirks, playing with, caring for them, and giving them lots of affection (or leaving them alone when they communicate they want that). - Have years of experience cat-sitting for friends and clients. I have yet to meet a cat who didn'...

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two kitties who've taught me everything I know named Biscuit and Saoirse (aka "Cheech"), pictured in the photos.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Go with your gut! Hire the sitter that makes you feel the most comfortable, one you trust to follow your instructions, stay in communication and shower your kitties with love and attention. If you have a meet and greet and it doesn't seem like a good fit, go with a different sitter. The relationship has to work for everyone involved!

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

I approach my role in your home like I would my own. I stay observant. If something seems off, I investigate and get in touch with the cat parent immediately. I scan for hazards in order to prevent issues, and notice/address any change in a cat's status or the home (like a hose left on, Christmas tree that needs watering, or a sticky door lock). I'll fix the problem and then let the cat parent know. I'm conscientious about following instructions. I ask questions- I want to make you and the cats happy! Whenever I leave the home I get a visual on every cat & double check lights and locks.

Sarah has cared for my cat Ruthie a few times now and she’s always my first choice when I go out of town. She’s great with medications and always sends thorough and thoughtful updates and photos. I so appreciate the care she shows Ruthie and can’t wait to have her again!

Sarah is the best!! I have actually quit another service in order to use her exclusively from now on because I was that impressed by her and prefer to have the same one person come to my house instead of multiple people (per the other service). She was punctual, caring, thorough, detail-oriented and had amazing communication throughout as well as follow-up after the visits were completed. She also sent super cute photos of my kitties on every visit that absolutely set my mind at ease while I was away. She went above and beyond taking care of several house tasks. 10/10 would trust her with my babies again! Thank you Sarah! 🐈❤️🐈‍⬛

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.
