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

Hello, purr baby parent! New clients are welcome 😸 I’m ready to serve your precious kitty/kitties and give you peace of mind while you’re away from home. Let’s schedule a Meet & Greet 😺 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ AVAILABILITY NOTE: If a date you’re interested in booking me for is marked unavailable (indicated by a red X) on my calendar, please message me to ask if I can open up a slot for you. 🗓️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All cats, or as I call them “purr babies,” are angels on Earth! 😻 My name is Mary, and I’ve enjoyed the companionship and unconditional love of cats from a young age and am now in my midlife years. 😸 Sometimes I adopted them, and sometimes they adopted me (you probably know how that goes). I’ve rescued abandoned cats, adopted shelter cats, fostered cats, and even bottle-fed newborn kittens. Being a Meowtel cat sitter allows me to make even more kitty connections. Prepare for your purr baby/babies to be pampered! 😸 If you’re going out of town and need someone experienced, reliable, and attentive to take care of your cats’ needs (at your home), please check out my competitive rates! I recommend one morning and one evening visit each day. I’ll feed your purr baby/babies, provide fresh water, scoop the litter box(es), and brush or play with your cat(s). If they take oral medication or vitamins, I can handle that, and I’ve even given insulin injections before. 🙌🏻 Once you make your initial reservation booking with me, I’ll message you to schedule a free 30-minute Meet & Greet. During this visit to your home, I’ll get to meet you and your purr baby/babies and learn the details of what I need to know to ensure a successful experience for all. This is also the time you’ll give me a copy of your house key (and a code for the security alarm, if applicable) to use while I’m cat-sitting for you. You can have peace of mind because I’m insured through Meowtel, and the company has also ensured I have a clean background check. And rest assured, I’ll never bring anyone else into your home. ✅ After each visit, I’ll post a written update along with pictures or videos of your cat(s) on Meowtel. 📷 😸 I usually wear my own vinyl gloves 🧤 when feeding cats and scooping litter boxes. I’ll deposit a tightly tied garbage bag containing any empty cat-food containers and the litter-box w...

Are you usually available during holidays?

I’m always in town during the holidays, but my cat-sitting calendar does tend to fill up quickly during peak demand times. I recommend booking your reservation with me as soon as you have firm travel plans. I’ve even had clients book me several months in advance.

What is your favorite cat toy?

My favorite is the toy your kitty enjoys playing with most! For some purr babies, it’s a wand toy with a long snaky string or chirpy mouse; for others, it’s a laser pointer with a red dot light. One of my cats loves to play independently with his interactive ball chase track toy.

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

I take my time, respect your kitty’s boundaries, and speak softly. This means I won’t make any sudden or noisy movements or try to force anything with your cat. I usually get down on their level (i.e., sit on the floor) and offer my hand so it can be sniffed. I’ll also set a few treats down, if available. I may use a playlist on my phone that plays calming music designed specifically for cats. I’ve had much success with earning the trust of shy/timid/anxious purr babies using these techniques.

Mary is a master. She takes hiccups in stride and then steps into the house with the cats non-flustered. I never have to worry when I am away. It is so easy to travel, knowing my kitties are in her care. So very grateful we have such a special person caring for our cats.

Mary was great! We had a nice meet and greet. She got to know the cats and asked thoughtful questions. My cats liked her day one. Mary sent great videos and updates while we were away. It was great to know my cats were in good hands. I will book Mary again next time we leave town.

Mary sends the best, funniest videos of my little ones being the goofs that they are. I’m sure they look forward to her visits… she takes such good care of them and gives them each the playtime they love. She reads them so well 💖

Mary jumped in twice while I was away for two weeks while my mother was dying. I had many things to have to worry about while I was away, none of them were cat related. The girls were so calm and happy when I came back, the house felt warm and friendly with Mary having been here. She even left me the kindest card which meant a great deal to me. Mary does go above and beyond.

Our lives changed when we discovered Mary through Meowtel. She genuinely loves our girls so much and I can leave them and while I miss them, I know they are well cared for and Mary will ensure anything they need is always done.

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.
