I'm Joy | Cat Sitting in Houston, TX

Many people know me as that one person who befriends almost every kitty they meet. That's because I approach each one with compassion and respect on their own terms. What I love most about cats is that they each have a will of their own (sometimes a very strong one!), which makes earning their trust and affection that much more rewarding. My main service areas are Houston (mostly anywhere within Beltway 8), Bellaire, Sugar Land, Missouri City and Stafford. I currently share my home in the Galleria area with one cat, a nine year-old grey tuxedo rescue named Jasmine. Over the past few years, I have also fostered three kittens short-term and and one long-term. (Jazzy has made it very clear that she prefers to be an only child, though!) Having lived with cats my entire life, I am well-versed in the meanings behind feline body language, behavior and actions. I also have several years o...

Joy is prompt, friendly and thoroughly professional. She sent updates with pics/vids that made our day. Ziggy Stardust loves her and so do we! We have a huge sigh of relief now when we travel!

Joy was great to work with and took very good care of our kitty. She is very detailed and makes sure to get all the information needed to care for your cat/cats. I loved that she sent videos and pictures after both visits, really made me feel more relaxed while I was away. Would highly recommend her! 😊

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.
