I'm Elsa | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

My friends tease me and say I have the crazy cat lady gene but I see no problem with it! I have 3 cats of my own that I adore and spoil very much. I volunteer regularly at Austin Pets Alive! Specifically, the neonatal department, which focuses on caring for kittens and pregnant moms. I have fostered families of kittens too and found each of them loving homes. My approach to meeting new cats is to put my hand out to let the cat get a sniff or feel for me, and if they walk away, I respect that. If they choose to allow me to pet them or want some affection, I will gladly follow suit. I have dealt with many different types of cats volunteering in the animal shelter. From barn cats that are feral and pretty anti-social, to cats who have been sheltered their entire lives by loving owners. I respect every individual...

Elsa was very sweet to my kitty and very responsive. my kitty was still a bit shy and hiding a lot but she does that some even when I am home. She got plenty food and water and litter box was clean.

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.
