I'm Dawn | Cat Sitting in Albany, NY

Meow ! My name is Dawn and I LOVE cats! I have 3 cats of my own at home. Purnestine (Tuxedo), Tito (Black Bombay), and our newest addition Roberta (a Tortie kitten - making an appearance in my profile pic). If anyone ever tells you Tortitude isn't real... they are lying ;) They are all rescue cats and I absolutely love them all and spoil them rotten, just like they should be. They each have different diets, Tito has to have special UR food, Roberta is still on kitten food, and Purnestine is a picky Tuxie, so I have a lot of experience in feeding separate diets, as well as feeding separately and supervising. I also am a volunteer with Whiskers in Albany and work in the free-roaming shelter feeding, cleaning up after, and giving much needed love a...

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

I have been helping friends and family take care of their cats while they are away or busy all my life ! I have been volunteering at Whiskers cat shelter (over 100 cats) for over a year caring for cats of all personalities and needs (even feral ones).

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love meeting new cats and giving them extra special attention when their humans are away. I enjoy helping others and making the owners have a total sense of trust and confidence that their babies are being well taken care of.

Are you usually available during holidays?

Yes ! All of our family are local so we do not travel for holidays and am typically available to sit !

Dawn was great! Professional and sent humorous updates about our "invisible "kitty. Even though our shy girl never showed herself, Dawn reported food and treats eaten as well as litterbox use. Oh, yeah, she watered my plants too.

Response from Dawn on Jun 17, 2024 "Thank you ! It was a pleasure to visit your professional hide and seek kitty. I'm still up for the challenge of trying to spot her and would be happy to feed and water her (and the plants) again."

We had been leaving my cats alone for short trips and felt terrible. They always seemed so sad when I came home and my nervous kitty would be supper clingy for a day after. So when this time we needed to leave for a little longer I decided to get a sitter. I really loved Dawn’s profile. She seemed to really love cats and have lots of experience with them. At first I only scheduled Dawn for 20 min each day. I had assumed my kitties would not come out or be very skittish. But when she came for the meet and greet, she got down on their level and spent time to get to know them. She asked lots of questions about their routine and their likes and dislikes. They were cautious but friendly when meeting her so I increased the time. They LOVED Dawn. She sent cute pictures and daily updates. She let me know when she arrived, what they were doing, and when she left. This really cooled my anxiety. She gave them their wet food and vitamins. They played with her and accepted treats. My very skittish kitty sat in her lap. They were very happy. I came home to very calm happy kitties. Dawn is amazing! She even pulled the trash to the curb on trash day. Thank you so much Dawn!

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 $25.00. 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.
