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 snuggling! 😸 MEDICAL EXPERIENCE: *I have first-hand experience with various health con...

Caitlin completed exceeded our expectations. She gave us all the photos and videos. Told us about our girls behavior. We could tell they were both feeling so so loved. Truly went above and beyond. We were able to relax on our trip knowing that were being loved and taken care of. Cannot recommend her enough.

Another amazing experience with Caitlin! All our kitty’s needs were taken care of, including lots of play and cuddles. We were so comfortable all week knowing he was with her. The updates were detailed and adorable. Highly recommended!

Caitlin is such a down-to-earth person. When we did the meet and greet, it was like looking in a mirror. We had a lot in common. Our personalities just clicked! A very caring human being. What I admired the most when I read her bio was the fact that she does a lot of rescue work and was really good with shy kitties. It showed me that she loved what she did and the care she put into every fur baby she watched over. I have three boys, and Anu was diagnosed with FIP back in May 2023 and nearing the end of his treatment. Being a worrisome mama and haven’t left my baby in 115 days I was nervous being away. After receiving the first day of photos and videos, her reassurances, and seeing how loved Anu and the other boys were left my heart with ease. I saw how Anu had taken to her and how attentive she was with them gave me that peace of mind while we were away. I knew she would take care of them like they were her own. When we came home it felt like I never left. The boys miss her, of course. If you’re in search of a loving person to watch over your fur baby (ies), I highly recommend Caitlin. She is exceptional! She has the gift of cat charmer!

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.
