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! I have 6 cats of my own and 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. I typically spend closer to 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 bins from the...

Emily's Reviews

Attention to Detail

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.

Emily's exceptional care for our Phil, was truly remarkable during our month-long trip! She went above and beyond to ensure Phil's well-being, sending daily updates with photos. Her attention to detail and thoughtfulness were evident as she even brought over toys for Phil to enjoy. Emily's dedication and love for our furry family member made our vacation worry-free. We couldn't be more grateful for her outstanding service! Highly recommend Emily for any pet sitting needs.

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.
