I'm Heidi | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

Cats are my favorite animal. They’re like little angels in fur coats. I’ve owned cats my whole life (or rather, they’ve owned me). Sadly, both of my senior cats passed away in 2020. But I now have a former stray living with me and he has adopted me as his human. Throughout my years of being a sitter with meowtel, I have met so many cats with so many different personalities. I know that every cat is different and all have different needs, and I accommodate to each one of them. I also greatly understand that pets are family, and I want my clients to know that their cats are in good hands so they ca...

Learn More About Heidi

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?
I have been a cat sitter for at least 15 years now. I started out taking care of my friends and co worker's cats. I was accepted to work for Meowtel in 2019 and have been with them ever since.
What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?
I enjoy meeting new people and of course new cats! I've met so many nice and interesting people who love cats as much as I do. And it's so much fun and rewarding to hang out with and take care of cats all day.
What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?
Once a new client requests a reservation with me, I reach out and let them know I have accepted their request and ask when they have availablity to schedule a meet and greet. I typically like to only do in person meet and greets as it gives the client a chance to meet me in real life and it gives me a chance to meet the cats before I take care of them. That way they are somewhat familiar with me on the first day of the reservation, so I'm not a complete stranger.

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.
