I'm Makayla | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

I have been a pet owner and lover my whole life! I currently have two cats with unique health needs which I think would make me a great cat sitter! One of my cats, Oliver, has diabetes so I am comfortable tracking glucose levels, giving insulin, and carefully watching his food intake. My other cat, Sharpie, has IBD and liver disease meaning he is on a very strict diet and needs to be monitored for any weight changes. In addition, I live with a 7-month kitten who just recently when through major surgery (he ate a rubber band), and have been monitoring him closely. I have experience with Hepatic Lipidosis and feeding tubes and have gotten very good a problem-solving feeding tube imperfections. Cats tend to be misunderstood creatures by those who don't own their own, they are silly, clumsy, and all-around wonderful pets to keep you company. I unde...

Makayla is always available to get me out of a jam in a hurry. She has filled in for me several times when I had to attend to another kitty elsewhere. She is sweet and kind to the kitties and they seem to really enjoy her visits. She sends great videos and all is always well when she is there.

Makayla did great with our babies! Our super shy boy even came out to say hi to her (which he has never done with a sitter before!) She gave us great peace of mind while we were away, and we loved all the video and photo updates of our cuties while we were away. Definitely will recommend her to others and would love to use her again in the future.

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.
