I'm Sarah | Cat Sitting in Dallas, TX

I am a Neuroscience PhD student at UT Southwestern and I cat sit for Meowtel on the side to get an extra kitty-induced dopamine boost. I grew up around cats and I now and have a fur baby of my own now named Binx, who is a very chatty and playful Russian Blue. I have been cat sitting for friends and family since I was a child and for Meowtel since 2018 and I have taken care of cats of almost all ages and temperaments. My friends, family, and previous clients have called me the cat-whisperer, which drives me to connect with all my kitty clients as best I can (even the shy ones) so they don't feel alone while their humans are gone. Meet & Greet: As a Meowtel sitter I offer complimentary meet and greets. I find them to be the perfect opportunity to get to know new fur-clients and learn how you take care of them. When I meet new kitties I take things very slowly and let them make all the decisions (but am not above bribing friendship with their favorite treats haha). Your Visit: During each visit I will take care of your fur baby's basic needs (food/water, litter) as well as play with, brush, cuddle, or just...

Learn More About Sarah

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have been cat sitting my whole life for friends & family & have been cat sitting for Meowtel since 2018. Over the years I have sat for cats of almost all ages & temperaments as well as dealt with a variety of oral medications for my clients.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one kitty, a very chatty & playful Russian Blue named Binx. I was lucky enough to adopt him from a nearby shelter several years ago & he has made my life so much better!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I have dealt with many timid and anxious kitties. I've found the most effective way of doing so it simply patience and quiet. I am very willing to just sit quietly next to their hiding spot with a favorite snack or toy until they feel comfortable emerging. For cat parents with particularly timid/anxious kitties who really want their fur-baby to bond with their sitter I recommend booking longer time slots so their kitty has more time to get comfortable.

Sarah was amazing taking care of our two cats while we were out of town. She even got our very shy cat to come out when she was over! I highly recommend Sarah if you are looking for a cat sitter

Sarah was very careful, she followed all my instructions to the letter and kept me updated with pictures of my cats. she made sure to check on both of them, even one that is very shy and hides all the time. I recommend her for sure.

Sarah took care of my car perfectly! I had peace of mind because Sarah was taking care of my cat when I was on extended trip out of the country.

Sarah was prompt in setting up an initial meet and greet. Each day she sent us photos and messages about our pet that made us feel good while we were away. We will certainly book Sarah again.

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $31.00. 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.
