I'm Karuna | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

Howdy! My name is Karuna and I've worked with animals almost all my life. I did petsitting as a teen, my first job was as a kennel assistant at a vet office, and I now work as a professional pet care provider and dog trainer. With all this experience, I can offer some of the best cat care in Austin, TX! I love kitties, and I know many cats need just as much care and attention as dogs or other animals. I'm not just a cat feeding service, I also love to give them cuddles, treats, and play time. Here are some of my favorite things to do with kitties: -Sit with them and cuddle, of course. -Brush their fur and give them skritches. -Play with cat wand toys with them, or whatever their favorite toy is that gets them excited to play. -Toss treats around so they can hunt. -Rub their bellies (if they let me). -Tell them about my day. I'm sure they listen intently ;) This way they get used to the sound of my voice. I've owned cats for about 9yrs, and my first two adopted bab...

Karuna's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Karuna took great care of my three cats while we were out of town. Feeding them isn't easy as they all have to eat separately and she's seen it all before and knew exactly what to do. She gave them treats and attention and made them feel loved which I really appreciate. Her updates through the app were fantastic and I enjoyed all the photos and details. So thorough and kind as well. Highly recommended!!!

Karuna did an amazing job taking care of our car Ellie. She was quick to communicate and provide updates. It was such a relief to be able to go out of town knowing our little kitty was in safe and loving hands.

Karuna took amazing care of my cat while I was away for the holiday. She was super responsive and sent great pictures. He usually doesn't come out for strangers that quickly!

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.
