I'm Cecelia | Cat Sitting in Houston, TX

My name is Cecelia, and I'm excited to offer my services as a dedicated and passionate cat sitter. With a wealth of experience in feline care, I'm here to ensure your furry friends are happy, healthy, and well-loved while you're away. I have a deep love for cats that shines through in everything I do. For two years, I had the joy of managing Houston's only cat cafe, El Gato. During my time there, I took on the responsibility of caring for all the resident cats, ensuring they were well-fed, comfortable, and stress-free. My role included daily feeding, litterbox cleaning, providing enrichment activities, and creating a peaceful environment that helped over 100 cats find their forever homes. My expertise extends to all aspects of cat car...

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

I have over five years of experience in cat sitting, covering a variety of settings from daily check-ins to short-term live-ins. My approach is highly personalized, ensuring I meet the unique needs of each client and their cats. Additionally, I've fostered cats for several years, often providing emergency care for those in need. My time at Houston's El Gato cat cafe equipped me with invaluable skills, as I frequently managed the care of cats in distress, ensuring they received the necessary medical attention and comfort.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

What I enjoy most about cat sitting is getting to know each unique cat and ensuring they feel as loved and cared for as they do with their owner. I understand that changes in environment and routine can stress cats, so I strive to minimize that stress by adjusting my care to fit their temperament. Providing enrichment through playtime, offering comfort with soothing pets and cuddles, and maintaining their typical schedules are all part of my approach. It's incredibly rewarding to see a cat happy and relaxed while their owner is away, knowing I’ve made a positive impact.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes, I have two wonderful cats! One is Soup, a tabby I adopted from the cat cafe. Initially, I took her home to recover from an illness and planned to return her to the cafe, but she became my “foster fail” as I couldn’t part with her. From the first night, her cuddly, playful nature stole my heart, and I knew she was my forever kitty. My second cat is Nyx, who initially was reluctant towards Soup but now they are inseparable companions. Nyx is very affectionate and loves to cuddle by my side, though she can be grumpy if woken up—unless it's for food, then she comes running. I love them both with all my heart and they bring so much joy to my life.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
