I'm Amy | Cat Sitting in Houston, TX

🐱Hello, Hello!🐱 I am a pet lover that would love to offer my services to care for your companions. My friends call me Amy "Dolittle". I have 4 dogs, 2 cats (ages 19 and 12) and a macaw.

Learn More About Amy

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

I have been professionally caring for cats for five years now. My experience includes caring for any type of feline from kittens to special needs (tripod, blind), seniors, to hospice care kitties.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

The ability to connect with cats is a special accomplishment. I thrive to provide a comforting, reliable experience for the cats and cat parents. I love that I can become a part of the family and see them throughout their years.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I am proud to have a 19 year old female named Binky that we found in a dumpster when she was 6 weeks old. She is my most precious and she rules the house. I also have Cathy, she showed up at my door 2 days before Hurricane Harvey hit Houston. Of course I just opened the door and said come on in. She is my energetic girl.

I cannot speak highly enough about Amy! Admittedly I am a very anxious cat mom and am very picky about who I allow in my home to care for my three little ones. Amy took precautions to make sure my escape artist didn’t get out, sent me pictures during the visit and even checked in once I got home! Even my hesitant kitty warmed right up to her! Having Amy care for my littles while I am away provides such a peace of mind and helps ease my “mom” guilt a bit! Seriously can’t wait for them to have more play time in a few weeks🥰

Amy was fantastic with our shy girl! She gave her time and patience to warm up to her. She was also wonderful at sending updates and pictures of our cat. I would recommend her to anyone and hope to work with her again!

Amy was incredible! My feline friend needs oral medication and is generally shy/easily spooked, so I was nervous about her first cat sitting experience. Amy was a rockstar in 1. taking care of Plum and 2. reassuring me. During the meet and greet she took notes, paid attention to details and the cue words I use for treats or food or medication, she suggested other ways of making my cat feel less alone such as cat TV, and even was open to filling up the food bowl for the outdoor kitties that come to visit sometimes. The pictures and updates were amazing and I deeply appreciate the calm, understanding, and empathetic energy Amy radiates. Plum could feel it too and especially appreciated how Amy let her take her time when getting comfortable and trusting. I came home to a happy cat who didn’t exhibit her usual stressed symptoms and I am profoundly grateful for the whole experience. I will absolutely book her again!! I’m so glad I put my trust in Amy!!

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.
