​​

  • Medication administration is available with Happy Kitty and The Cat's Meow services. See FAQ.
     

  • Anxious Kitty is an optional free add-on if you choose daily Happy Kitty or The Cat's Meow cat sitting services.
     

  • $5 extra per visit for each additional cat over three cats. 
     

  • Visits scheduled on New Year's Eve Day, New Year's Day, Good Friday, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, and Christmas Day include a $5 surcharge/visit.
     

  • New clients must schedule a minimum of two sitting visits. The new client meet and greet visit is separate and provided free of charge. Single-visit cat sits are available for existing clients.

  • No additional fee/surcharge for non-holiday weekend visits or last-minute scheduling for existing clients whom we've previously sat for, but please note that we cannot always guarantee availability at the last minute, especially during peak periods such as summer and holidays. Last-minute scheduling for new clients is subject to our availability and sole discretion because an in-home meet and greet is always required for new clients before any sitting can occur.

  • If you use a physical key, we encourage you to use a Realtor's lockbox. If you don't have one, we sell them at cost & your sitter will bring it to the meet & greet. If you won't or can't use a Realtor's lockbox, there is a $10 fee for each separate key pick-up or drop-off service before or after any sit.

  • Our services do not include job sharing with friends, family, relatives, etc., except on a rare, case-by-case basis for existing clients at our sole discretion. Read more about this in FAQ #3, as fees and more may apply.

  • We only sit for indoor kitties or indoor/outdoor cats that can stay inside while you're away. We care deeply about the well-being of every cat we visit. It's just not in our DNA to try to get a kitty indoors for the allotted time that's paid for and then leave if they don't come home within that time frame. We've gone out looking around neighborhoods and calling for kitties on our own time to get them to come home, so we know they are safe and sound. With our busy schedule, it's not possible to do this anymore. 

GO KITTY GO PET TAXI SERVICE

Does your cat need to visit the vet, but you don't have the time?

We're here to help with our reliable, personalized Go Kitty Go feline pet taxi service.

  • $20 each way for up to three cats for clients and vets within our service area. $5 for each additional cat. Each kitty must have their own secure, portable enclosure. You will be responsible for informing the vet before our arrival that you give Petite Paws Austin consent to approve a treatment or a diagnostic procedure if the vet recommends it. Also, you must have a form of payment on file with the vet that can be used for the appointment and any medications/etc. the vet provides for your kitty.  Also, try to be available by phone or text so if treatment is required, Petite Paws Austin can inform you and involve you in the decision so there are no surprises. 

  • Includes 15-minute in-office or in-vehicle wait for curbside/parking lot drop-off (following your vet's COVID-19 protocol). $1 for each additional minute after the first 15 minutes the vet is late getting the pet from the vehicle or the inner office lobby after the scheduled drop-off time or returning it to the lobby or vehicle after the scheduled pick-up time. (Luckily, we find most vets are timely.)

  • We will communicate anything the vet conveys to us about your cat & send images when the kitty is back home.

  • If you are not a current client, you will need to schedule a meet & greet before providing the Go Kitty Go service.

  • Supplies pick up is $20 within our service area. You must have a payment method on file with the vet.
