I'm Dena | Cat Sitting in San Antonio, TX

I am a retired, dependable cat lover with plenty of time on my hands to take care of your precious feline(s) while you are away. I love cats and have always had one living with me (with the exception of when I lived in the dorm in college). My current furry friend is Princess, whom I adopted from the Humane Society about 9 years ago. She has deformed feet and cannot retract her front claws. The person at the Humane Society said that no one wanted her because of that, which meant I had to take her home immediately (and I did). She is a wonderful best friend and we love each other dearly, even though she often claws me (but doesn’t mean to) because of her handicap. In fact, she is sleeping next to me as I write this. I am thrilled to be a cat sitter with Meowtel. I treat my cat like a princess.....thus her name....and I will be happy to take great care of your furry friends and treat them like the princes and princesses they are. I grew up in the country, on a farm, at the end of a dead-end road, 10 miles from any town. My childhood was idyllic and included interaction with many types of animals — cows, pigs, chickens, dogs, and of course, cats. My grandfather, who had a dairy farm, always had plenty of “barn cats” that were semi-feral (but we always played with them) in order to control rodents on the farm. I am probably one of a few people who can say that I watched my grandfather milk the cows and aim the udder on the ground so that some of the fresh milk went to the barn cats —and they would lap it up and love it. I eventually left the farm and went to college in the southwestern part of Arkansas and, of course, I couldn’t ha...

dena is my kittie’s best friend! Her visits have actually made him look forward to anyone coming to the door, he no longer hides when the front door opens. She is very responsive and works with you on visit times, etc. Thanks Dena!

Dena is so awesome and my kitty loves her! I am so relieved that I can now travel and know that my kitty is happy and relaxed. I see zero stress when I return, and I love all the photos and updates each day. Thank you Dena!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $30.00. 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.
