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...

I have an unfriendly cat who doesn’t take well to most people. Erika spent time with him (likely exercising a lot of patience!!) and took such care when it came to updates and photos. she was so thorough in her comments and gave me all the details about her visit. Despite my cat being rude, it was so clear from his demeanor in the photos that he was still happy/engaged/feeling relaxed. I have never left him with a stranger and was very nervous, but Erika did the most to put me at ease. It was so clear upon meeting her that he was in incredible hands!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $31.00. 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.
