I'm Marina | Cat Sitting in Union City, NJ

Hi there! My name is Marina and I am a scientist and educator for a non-profit in NYC. I’m a part of the queer community so always especially happy to receive bookings from queer folks :) I’ve been a cat lover since I can remember, and dedicate most of my free time to my fur babies, Martin & Juni, and Purrfect Catpanion - a cat rescue organization that works to rescue, vet & adopt out kitties in Hudson County. I have volunteered at cat rescues for over 10 years and have, as a result, become quite comfortable working with all types of kitties- from ferals to friendlies - babies to oldies - administering medicine and managing complicated kitty relationships, among other things! My oldest cat, Martin, is 7 years old and has recently developed some urinary/bladder issues which can be life threatening. As a result, I have become a very observant cat mo...

Learn More About Marina

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I chat with the parent to learn more about the kitty and their needs, and schedule a home visit once we get about a week away from the reservation date. During these visits, I meet the kitty, get to know the space so I know where everything I need is located, and ask the parent if there's anything extra they need me to do while they're gone (water plants, pick up mail, etc)!

Are you usually available during holidays?

Yes, I am usually available during the holidays! I had 3 reservations over the Christmas holiday.

What is your favorite cat toy?

I love wire toys the best– because they can engage even the laziest of cats! The movement mimics bird flight, tapping into a kitty's natural instinct and making them irresistible.

Attention to Detail

Marina was so kind and patient with Essex. We appreciated pictures and videos of playtime - it really gave us peace of mind. Looking forward to booking with Marina again in the future!

Marina was so wonderful with our cat, Oops! She sent updates regularly and even stayed a little extra a few times when Oops! needed it. She really went above and beyond and I can't recommend her enough! I will definitely be seeking her out next time I go out of town.

Marina did an amazing job watching my two cats while I was away for a week. I have one very friendly cat, and one shy cat, and she managed to get the shy cat to come say hi a few times. I’ve truly never had a sitter that was able to do that! she had great response time and frequent updates. I really felt like my cats were in good hands with her.

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.
