I'm Helena | Cat Sitting in Piscataway, NJ

Hello! I’m Helena, and I would love to cat-sit for your feline friends! I grew up around cats as a child, and my love of all things cat bloomed as a young adult when I began fostering in my community in 2020. I partnered with Brooklyn Animal Action, the American Alliance for Protection of Animals, as well as Flatbush Cats as a cat foster and educator; through these groups, I successfully placed 8 cats and kittens into happy forever homes. I have a talent for helping anxious cats feel more at ease, and have worked with kittens, seniors, and cats all ages in-between. My goals with Meowtel are to continue my legacy of making cats feel comfortable and happy even in the midst of their caretakers being away from home! Cats are the most serene when they can rely on routine, which is why I approach ca...

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

I have been cat-sitting for over 20 years! I have worked with cats of all ages as well as cats with special needs.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Meeting different cats is always so fun! I enjoy the detective aspect of learning a cat's likes and dislikes as well as the way to earn the cat's trust and affection. Cats are truly the best companions.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I once cat-sat for a litter of 6 kittens and a mother cat. When I tell you it was chaos, it was CHAOS (but the best kind). The kittens used me as a tree and I successfully convinced their mother that I was indeed up to the task to care for her babies. Each of the kittens was named after a different North American cryptid (ie. bigfoot, mothman etc.), and it was so fun to learn about each kitten's personality.

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 $30.00. 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.
