I'm Sarah | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX
Update: My calendar is booking up for December. Reach out now to reserve a spot. Meowtel has a great cancelation policy. My name is Sarah and I can’t wait to meet your beloved cats and kittens. While I'm new to Meowtel, I'm not new to cat sitting. I've been caring for cats and kittens in the Austin area for 8 years, including elderly cats, kittens and cats with serious medical conditions, those needing multiple oral and topical medications, nebulizer treatments, and cats who require special accommodations. And of course plenty of healthy, active and playful felines! I've also 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! Do you have a cat who won't come...
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.
Sarah did great. My old cat was happy to have her around.
Sarah did such an amazing job taking care of my 2 cats! She was great at communicating and sending cute videos and photos each day. She even vacuumed the litter and cat hair so I came home to a clean house and 2 very happy cats. I can recommend her enough!

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.
