I'm Nico | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX
Cats have a variety of personalities just like people, while being adorable too, but there is also a certain mysticism about them. I am very passionate about the care of cats, and it is my utmost dedication to meet your cats needs at a five star level. Once you book me and I confirm, I’ll set up a free meet & greet, either in person or via Zoom or FaceTime. During each visit I will send text updates as well as photos and/or videos. I’m also known to leave a toy or treat at the end of each booking. I also have experience with giving cat medication, should that be neede...
Nico was great, prompt and reliable.
Nico took great care of Tiger! thanks!
Nico did a great job with our 2 cats and fish. The kitties were well cared for and happy when we came home. Nico was reliable and communicated very well. We received pictures from each visit and I felt reassured that our kitties were in good hands. I would definitely how Nico again!
Nico went above and beyond to take care of our two cats while we were away in Europe. We left for 11 days and our cats were happy and well taken care of when we returned. so grateful for Nico and would highly recommend.
This is my second time booking Nico to care for my cat and it went as great as the first time! He is very attentive to special care, as us very communicative with every visit, making my vacation worry-free as I could rest assured my cat was in great hands. I'll be booking him again for a third time for sure!

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.
