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

We have one amazing and lovable senior kitty, Koshka, who is 16. Recently we lost our other senior kitty, Rudy, at the ripe old age of 19 3/4. Koshka is a sweet, nervous lady with some medical conditions to manage. Before Rudy passed away, he received sub-cutaneous fluids regularly for three plus years, plus a host of other medications to help manage his chronic kidney disease. We miss him terribly! Over the years, I’ve gotten very comfortable managing cats medical needs, and know how hard it is to find good reliable care for them while o...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I’ve been cat sitting with Meowtel now since November 2022, and have taken care of friends cats for years before that! I love doing it—I love meeting new kitties, and new people!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I do! I have one senior kitty named Koshka. She’s 17 1/2, and I adopted her when she was just seven months old! She’s been with me through several moves and two states, and I adore her!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Meowtel does an amazing job of vetting and training sitters! When we first moved to Jersey City, we found a cat sitter through Meowtel, and then I became a sitter, and I learned so much and felt so good about the meowtel process. I would trust anyone I found through Meowtel to take care of our kitty.

Alison was so amazing for our long weekend away! She sent so many great pictures and updated us each time she went over to take care of our fur baby. We were so lucky to have Alison and all her help while away. We will absolutely book again when needed!

We were lucky to have Alison to take care of our ̶k̶i̶d̶, I mean, cat for the time of our vacation. She totally left an impression of diligent and trustworthy person on our very first meet&greet, and proved to be so during the actual time of our absence. She was always very responsive, quick with updates (including pictures/videos) and overall easy to communicate.

Alison was great and my cats loved her too! Timid Cherry even sat on her lap, which she has never ever done with anyone else while Toffee clearly got lots of playtime. Both were well-fed and watered while I got lots of photos to show how they were getting on. Happiness all round!

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.
