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

Hi there! MEOW are you?! My name is Caitlin (she/her), and I am a self-proclaimed cat lady with a problematic number of cat mugs 😹 and multiple "cattoos" (cat tattoos!) 😺 I have had cats my whole life, and as a cat sitter, I have years of experience and oodles of helpful cat knowledge. Most importantly, I firmly believe that cats aren't just pets, they're FAMILY - and your family deserves the best care in the world! I would be honored to look after your babies and ensure that they get all the loving care they deserve. ABOUT ME: *I have never not had multiple cats! Currently, my husband and I have 4 furry children: MacKenzie (5), Butterbeer (5), Rocket (9), and Cashmere (10, who happens to be the floof at the top of this page!) *I have been heavily involved in cat rescue, fostering, and adoption for the past nearly 20 years - it is my passion! ♥️ *I have years of experience socializing and rehabilitating kitties who have been neglected, abused, and traumatized, and subsequently nervous or aggressive. (It’s amazing what time, love, and patience can do!) *Professionally, I am a working actor – you may have seen me on TV at some point! I also work in administrative support part-time. *I live in the Paulus Hook area of Jersey City and am able to cat sit anywhere in Jersey City, Hoboken, and most of NYC. *I am completely trustworthy, endlessly compassionate, and 100% dependable. *I am fully vaccinated (and up-to-date boosted) for COVID-19. MY SPECIALTIES: *GREAT with shy, anxious, and/or nervous cats! I have been called a “cat whisperer” many times – a true badge of honor! *Special needs assistance (ie: blind, deaf, neurological disorders, impaired mobility) *I have cared for cats of all breeds and ages, kitten through senior. *Behavioral issues – I’ve seen it all! (Much of which in my own home at one time or another!) *Masters and Doctorate degrees in chin scritchies, cheek rubs, and sn...

Caitlin is the perfect sitter! While we were away for 10 days, she gave Niko lots love and care, administered his medication, and provided many photos and videos. It was so nice to see Niko so comfortable and happy with her. We are so thankful for her! She is so friendly and responsive! She left us a touching card on her last day and left Niko some treats! We will definitely book with Caitlin again!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $35.00. 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.
