I'm Emily | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

Hi, I'm Emily Joy and my life revolves around cats! I worked at a vet clinic in South Austin for 5 years. I am tech trained! I transitioned to be a full-time pet sitter in October 2022 so thank you so much for considering me! There are 7 cats in my family and I foster frequently for Austin Pets Alive and Austin Siamese Rescue. Prefer South Austin area, but willing to commute if it seems like the right fit. On short visits, I prefer to spend 30 minutes versus a 20 minute visit as long as the kitty is enjoying my company and my schedule allows. I am fully vaccinated and am available anytime. I have been pet sitting for extra income for many years and can provide great references. I once pet sit for a 19 year old cat for a whole month providing 2 visits a day and subcutaneous fluids once a day. The owner had to leave the country and was so happy that I was available for her. Luckily, the kitty did fine while mom was away and I really enjoyed spending that time with her. I will provide photos and updates for each visit. I can check mail, water plants, push and pull garbage bin...

Emily's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Emily was amazing! my cat is extremely shy and didn’t come out much, but she went out of her way to make him feel comfortable and even left him some new toys. I felt very comfortable with her taking care of my little guy!

Emily took great care of my two kitties while away for a week. She went above and beyond to play with my more confident kitty and worked diligently to gain confidence and also play with my very shy kitty. The pics and videos she sent let me know they were doing well the entire time and I couldn’t have asked for more.

Emily is amazing! It is such a good feeling knowing our kitties are in good hands with her. Super responsive, sends great photos, and loves to play with our very energetic Bo and Birdie. They are always so excited to see her. We love Emily!

Great! I've had Emily watch my cats a few times now and I really appreciate her updates and the care she provides for them.

I’ve been one of Emily’s clients for about a year, and she’s been the best cat sitter I’ve ever worked with. I have an elderly cat and I feel comfortable with Emily taking care of her when I’m 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.
