I'm Erika | Cat Sitting in Jersey City, NJ

Hi there! My name is Erika, but my friends call me the crazy cat lady. I am obsessed with cats and I treat them as my babies. I love to cuddle with them and spoil them as much as I can. If someone were to ask me what my dream job is I would say cat sitting as well as opening a cat cafe!! I have three cats, a tuxedo and a tabby short hair and a Siamese named Kitty, Mia and Sol. I found Mia at a very vulnerable stage. Barely having their eyes open, indicating that they weren’t even a week or two old. I learned to bottle feed and stimulate their bottom to help them poop. I then trained them to use the litter box which required A LOT of patience, but it was totally worth it. She is now two and she is happy and healthy. I volunteer for a non-profit organization near my hometown to help remove homeless cats from the streets. I have experience with FIV cats, and other cats with...

Erika's Reviews

Attention to Detail

My cat, Winston, has heart issues and requires quite a few medications which makes it scary anytime I need to leave him. Knowing I have Erika makes me feel more at ease. She provides me with amazing updates about everything and adorable pictures/videos which I love SO much. She is amazing with my cat’s medication and it’s clear how much Winston loves her from how easy it is for her to give it to him (and all the love he gives her!) My furbaby and I are so grateful for Erika!

Second time we have used Erika’s services and she did not disappoint. She was a great playmate to our boy and took a million pictures of his activities. Always enjoy having her tend to our fur baby.

Erika is a wonderful cat sitter. She took care of my two kitties while I was away, and she was great about sending updates. She even discovered a leak coming in thru the kitchen. If you need a trustworthy sitter who loves cats and would do anything for them, Erika is your girl!

Erika is amazing, couldn’t recommend her enough! We were very nervous, having never have left Essex before. Erika kept our minds at ease with daily pictures and videos of Essex, updates on how much he ate and used the litter box. We’re so thankful for her patience and understanding with our sometimes feisty boy.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $32.00.

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.
