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

Hello! My name is Garrett, I'm a freelance animator and life long animal lover. I can't wait to get to take care of your cat. I currently have one shelter cat of my own, Pazu, who is a 3 years old grey tabby who's trying to sit on my keyboard as I type this. I have grown up around animals and can accommodate any personality or special needs your cat may have. In high school I volunteered at a wildlife rescue and part of my job was helping out with Bob, the Bobcat who had been kept as a pet and improperly fed a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by his previous owner. Trust me, compared to Bob, I feel like I'm up to whatever challenges your fur baby may throw my way! I'm happy to follow whatever play, feeding or medication instructions you may have.

Learn More About Garrett

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love animals, and getting to know them and their personalities is one of my favorite things about cat sitting. Developing a bond with new cats, learning what they like and what makes them feel happy and cared for, is really satisfying and my favorite part of the job.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one cat at the moment, named Pazu. My wife and I adopted him from a local cat rescue as a tiny kitten. It’s been a joy to raise him and he’s really made our home feel complete.

Are you usually available during holidays?

My family is not local, which typically leaves me free to help you with your cat sitting needs most holidays.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $32.00. 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.
