I'm Sarah | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

My name is Sarah and I can’t wait to meet your beloved cats and kittens! I’ll love and take care of yours as if they’re my own. I've been caring for cats and kittens in the Austin area for 8 years, including being a foster for the Austin Animal Center. I’ve earned the trust of repeat clients, and I've had many overnight cat sitting jobs - including one household with 3 cats and 1 kitten! You and your felines will be provided a loving, caring and patient service with attention to the littlest details. I take my shoes off at the door. I have a special hand vacuum I like to use (only if it won't scare your cat) to eliminate most cat hair. All of the litter boxes will be refreshed, because I always scoop litter boxes and take waste out to the bin daily. I even bring my own waste bags just in case. I'm also not opposed to working overtime if your kitty seems to need a little extra love and attention. When you arrive home, your house will be clean. Your kitties might also seem a little tuckered out from all the good play time we'll have! As a foster, I have cared for elderly cats, kittens and cats with serious medical conditions, those needing multiple oral and topical me...

Sarah took care of my two cats, Freeda and Miso, for about a week. She's very calm, caring, and professional. After meeting her once, I knew that my cats would be well-cared for. She sent updates, photos, and videos of my happy cats with almost every visit and all went smoothly for the whole time I was away. Sarah spent extra time at my home quietly waiting for Freeda, my always-afraid-of-unfamiliar-people cat, to come out from her hiding place. She finally did, and by the fourth visit, Sarah sent a video of Freeda purring and nuzzling her. She's absolutely the cat whisperer! Miso liked her, too, but I've never seen Freeda take to anyone so fast. To top if off, when I arrived home, it was cleaner than when I left. No cat littler tracks anywhere! I'm so happy with the care that Sarah gave to my cats and would absolutely recommend her services.

Amazing caretaker. I was worried about leaving my cat alone for the first time since he got sick and Sarah was awesome taking care of him and making sure he got all his medications and keeping him company while I was gone!

Having Sarah as a cat sitter was a great experience for me and my cat! Athena is normally shy around new people but immediately took a liking to Sarah. Sarah went above and beyond in taking care of Athena providing emotional support to a lonely cat needing attention and offering to change out the litter when needed. Sarah provided daily updates with pictures and videos of them becoming best friends. I felt very at ease about Athena while I was traveling knowing that she was in good hands.

I’m leaving this review based on the two times I’ve hired Sarah, because I was not able to review the first time. Sarah was excellent in a long-term overnight stay capacity with my two elderly kittens, one of whom needs love all the time in the other one is a little more standoffish. Also, one cat had to be taken regularly to the vets for fluids. I I also hired Sarah for a last minute one day gig, and she was great, and got back to me right away. In both cases she had excellent communication and asked a fair number of questions so I knew she was taking the job very seriously which is important when these are your babies which is how I think of them.

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.
