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

I currently own two indoor cats, and they are my babies. It’s hard to find someone to watch them that I trust. I rescued Hank & June from Helotes Humane Society almost 2 years ago. They are siblings. I was raised with cats, my entire life. But as a child, my parents always kept our cats outdoors in California because it wasn’t as hot there. In 2007 I adopted my first two cats from the animal shelter in Orange, California. Those cats moved with me to Texas and were indoor only from the very first day they came home. Bella and Rascal were my first experience at having indoor cats, and I have not looked back...

Learn More About Deidra

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two indoor cats - Hank and June. I also take care of an outside feral cat we’ve named Blue.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I like to set up a meet and greet the week before my pet parents leave. So I can see what needs to be done, where everything is, and meet the kitties. I ask questions and take notes. I also answer any questions the pet parent has.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I meet each cat where they are at. If they want love, I shower them with it. If they are shy or timid, I just speak to them softly as I move around doing litters, food and water. I offer treats that the pet parents leave and try to offer play time with their toys. I do not push myself onto any cat. I do at least try to lay eyes on them and send a photo of them to their pet parent.

We love Deidra so much. She always goes above and beyond and takes care of our baby like she was hers. I never have to worry about my kitty's stress level because I know she loves Deidra even more than she loves me. She always leaves my house cleaner than I left it and keeps me 100 percent in the loop.The peace of mind she gives us is truly priceless.

The reservation process couldn’t have been smoother especially with a quick turnaround for the appointment. Deidra was available the same day for a meet n greet.

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 $27.00. 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.
