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...

Learn More About Jon

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?
I have been sitting for years and have experience with cats of all types and personalities. I even have a background with various types of short and long-term medications and cats with disabilities who need special care.
What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?
I work with the parent to schedule a meet and greet and answer their questions. Short-notice bookings sometimes require something virtual, but I usually like to meet the kitties and parents in person to talk through any concerns they may have. I check in as often as requested with pictures and videos (some parents like a check-in every visit, some of my regular clients prefer once a day or even once every few days).
How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?
I always check the doors and windows and keep packages from collecting at the front door so the home doesn't appear empty. Keeping the kitties comfortable with as little disruption to their routine as possible is very important to me.

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.

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.
