I'm Denise | Cat Sitting in Houston, TX

Hello and I graciously welcome You and your Special fur babies to Meowtel. I am a professional Purrfect Mom Cat Sitter. I service many areas in Houston/Harris County, however, I reside in 77070. The new platform with Meowtel allows us to pick 2 (two) zip codes as our primary locations. My Purrect Fur Baby Sitter zip codes are 77070 & 77069. I am available for additional zip codes in Houston/Harris County and surrounding areas. I recently received the latest covid vaccination on September 21, 2023. If you reside outside of 77070 & 77069, I am available for additional zip codes in Houston/ Harris County, however, the rates are slightly different due to the additional distance. Hello, my name is Denise and I have loved and lived with cats since I was a child. I will treat your fur babies and your home the same as my own, as if they were my babies. My cats are family members and are spoiled. I will Pamper your fur babies with EXTRA love and care. I bring extra toys to each visit because I absolutely enjoy playing with all my furry babies! I am available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, I am extremely flexible and 100% reliable. I am always just a call away. I send approximately 25 to 40 photos from each visit. I love animals, especially cats I have had cats all of my life. I currently have 2 cats, DD (Delilah) & Silverbelles and a grandmother to my son's cat, Pixie. My cats think we are all cats or they think we are all humans. I have also been a foster mom to cats/kittens all of my life. Please contact me if you are more than 15 miles away, I will consider any reservation. I offer a free 20-30 minute Meet & Greet (either in-person or via Zoom, as you prefer) to learn as much as possible about your fur babies and how to best take care of them while you are away. Many times my Meet & Greet can last over an hour. I take the time to stay and talk long enough for you to get to know me and ask any and all questions. My clients feel absolutely confident in leaving their fur babies and key with me without any reservations. I am very observant and I follow all instructions from my clients. To give some insight with one of my clients, fur baby. I cat-sit with a cat named Banana's and Banana's likes for me to give her "Piggy Back" rides. She actually will jump on my back and neck and she loves to go for what I call, "Piggy Back" rides. I am more than happy to accommodate ...

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

I have been cat sitting since 2021. I would have been cat sitting for most of my life. I have had kittens and cats in my life since I was a little girl. When I was working it was very normal for me to have "work" cats. I would keep cat food in my personal vehicle. I would feed the cat(s) as soon as I got to work, and I would feed them afterwork. When my co-workers and I would get off work they would see the cat(s) coming up to me and would ask me, "Is that your cat?" I would say absolutely, yes. I usually worked six (6) days a week, I would only worry about the cat(s) not eating of my day off.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy the fur babies! I have so many clients, and I LOVE their cats. I actually fall in love with a lot of them. I have a sign on the kitchen table, Do What You Love And Love What You Do! My husband says, I love cats, so cat sitting is naturally a great opportunity for me. I could play with fur babies all day long.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I have had a fur-baby who likes to hide & open all kinds of doors to kitchen & bathroom cabinets to hide in. Most of the fur-babies who hide from me, are now my best friend. A fur-baby can tell if you are a cat person or not. Their instinct is 100% on point. Most of my fur-babies love to see me and we have lots of fun playing. I never leave any fur-baby-sitting without seeing my fur babies. I will stay there all day until I find the fur-baby. It usually does not take that long. I did have 1 client who set up places in his residence for one of his cats to hide from me. I found his cat too.

This is our second time booking Denise and we love her and so does our kitty! She is always so quick to reply, sends great photos and my favorite part is that she plays with Link and is so accommodating to his needs. He clearly loves her and we love that he is always safe!

The Meowtel Promise & Satisfaction Guarantee

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations. For reservations where each visit is at or above $20 and paid for through Meowtel, your cat(s) will automatically be covered under our insurance policy in the event that things don't go as planned.

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.
