I'm Fernie | Cat Sitting in Austin, TX

This is Ferni! I am a seasoned vet tech and animal-passionate gal who recently started her own business to bring my skills home to your doorstep! Cat-sitting is nothing new to me - I have a lifetime of experience sitting on neighbors' cats, and about 6 years of experience at a feline-friendly, AAHA approved veterinary clinic. I have worked with cats of all a...

Fernie's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Fernie did great with her first time cat-sitting our two cats. She was very attentive and took notes during our initial visit and paid extra care to our one cat who is very shy. Would highly recommend!

Fernie was extremely attentive, followed my instructions, and spent time getting to know my four kitties. I highly recommend her!

Fernie proved to be very conscientious and caring. My cats had other ideas, however. She really did her best to give my cat her allergy meds, but my cat was way too wiley to fall for this stranger’s charms and hid herself away. Fernie suggested having supervised visits while I’m home to help build trust. I think that’s the only way and am willing to work with her on that so she can be more successful next time.

Fernie did an amazing personalized job taking care of my young and old kittens! She carefully gave medicine to my elderly cat and spent time playing with my 2-year-old who needs lots of attention. She also did great at taking care of the various chores like litter and water and making sure my house stayed nice while I was away. She kept me well informed of what was going on and sent me a nice note at the end of each visit.

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.
