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 was excellent, and I plan to book her again. She was responsive and detail-oriented. She demonstrated professionalism and flexibility with me several times, as I initially forgot a few key things that I intended to leave out for her/our cat. She did a great job for us, and I highly recommend her services.

This was my first time trusting a sitter outside of friends and family and I couldn’t be more satisfied with Karuna’s care. During the visits, sent me pictures of my boys, updates on how much water/food they were consuming between visits and how they were behaving. During our meet & greet, Karuna took notes of my care instructions and was proactive with making sure she had everything necessary for a successful pet sitting. I look forward to trusting Karuna with the care of my boys in the future. :)

Karuna took excellent care of our two cats over Thanksgiving, both of whom are elderly and have special needs including medication. Karuna was patient and flexible as our schedule changed repeatedly at the last minute. They were very communicative and sent prompt, detailed updates and photos. They even became friends with our anxious dog in record time. We're grateful that we could leave our cats in capable hands. Thanks, Karuna!

Karuna drew out our shy senior cat and kept us informed of when she visited and what she did. She gave us great peace of mind while we were away.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.

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.
