I'm Jon | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX
I work in the service and hospitality industry as a Training and Development manager and have lots of experience with learners of all backgrounds so patience is definitely a talent for me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE cats! I adopted two twin girls during the pandemic I tell everyone saved my life! They were my Covid kittens and they came to stay with me at a time when the world turned upside down for everyone. They were ringworm kittens and had special care needs for a while but we bonded and built a great home. I love all animals honestly but I have always had a special place in my heart for the mystery and independence only a cat possesses. We can teach a dog to do anything and they will do it. We can teach a cat to do anything but they will only do it if any when THEY want to and I love that. :) I was sad to lose both of my babies last year due to an irresponsible sitter while I was traveling and I never want that...
Jon was absolutely amazing with my Bengal cat and responded immediately anytime I texted him. I cannot recommend him highly enough!! He is such a sweetheart and will love and play with your cat like it's his own!
Jon assuaged our concerns for our babies during our Thanksgiving week trip. He pampered our 16-year-old cat and showered our 2-year-old kitten with affection. He kept the litter fresh, the food bowls full, and the treats a-flowing! Without a doubt, we’ll be seeking his services again in the future!
Jon was amazing with my shy kitty! He is extremely professional and such a nice guy to talk to! I definitely recommend Jon to anyone who needs a sitter!
Jon is very considerate and reliable. He sends detailed updates and photos of each visit and is fast to respond to messages. He also does his best to interact with our shy cats. This was our second booking with Jon and we would work with him again.
Jon accommodated our last minute needs and was upbeat and wonderful. He kept in touch with great photos throughout. We will use him again. Highly recommended!

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.
