I'm Jackeline | Cat Sitting in Astoria, NY

Hi, I’m Jackie & a self proclaimed cat lady that hasn’t gone crazy, yet! I grew up with all the animals at home & there was never a cat I didn’t insist on rescuing. In the past I’ve volunteered to walk dogs at shelters & cat sat for family & friends. My current kitty Brooklyn is an adopted street cat that I found on the west coast & together we road tripped across the country for 6 months. He’s been my constant companion for the last 9 yrs & has made life so much more interesting. He is vocal, sassy & just such a character. He has taught me patience & how to slow down in this hectic life. Besides loving cats, I’m also a denim designer, an artist & a nature enthusiast. I also love traveling & when I’m not able to bring Brooklyn with me, I make sure he’s left in the best care possible so I know what a great responsibilit...

Jackeline's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Jackeline was absolutely amazing with my two cats and I would recommend her to anyone! This was my first time ever using a cat sitter and she put my mind at such ease while I was on vacation and got along with my cats immediately, even my shy guy who usually isn’t super receptive to new people! All of her updates and photos were great and overall communication was seamless. 10/10 recommend 🐱❤️

Jackeline was amazing with our four-week-old bottle baby kitten! I was nervous a typical cat sitter wouldn’t have experience caring for kittens so young, who have such specific needs and require so much attention, but Jackeline was very familiar with what caring for a bottle baby entails — it was clearly not her first rodeo. And she even helped me with scheduling, offering to do an “overnight” in the middle of the day, ensuring she could stay with our kitten for the full day my partner and I were away. She was really responsive whenever we checked in to see how it was going, and our kitten clearly loved her — she sent lots of pictures of them cuddling on the couch! I would absolutely book Jackeline again in a heartbeat!

Jackeline is the absolute best cat sitter in New York City. She is so communicative, loves cats, made us feel so at ease and took such incredible care of our sometimes difficult girls. She made sure to send pictures, always gave updates, and genuinely loved getting to know them. We will be literally planning our vacations around her availability in the future!

We found Jackie in a pinch when we had to go out of town and were worried about finding care for our cat that’s been a bit under the weather and needs meds. Jackie has been so pleasant from the moment we made the reservation, to our meet and greet and providing us with updates throughout her visits - she has been thorough, detail oriented, and her love for what she does shines through so brightly. Our kitty is definitely on the shy side and she has managed to get her to open up and be comfortable. I’m so relieved to have someone to call on now whenever we need care for our fur baby!

Jackie has taken care of my cat several times when I’ve had to go out of town. I cannot express enough how fantastic her service was. As a cat mom with a pet needing medication twice a day, finding someone reliable and capable is crucial. Jackie not only met but exceeded my expectations. Her professionalism and genuine love for animals was evident from the start. She took the time to understand my cat’s specific needs and routine, ensuring that the medication was administered accurately and on time. I was particularly impressed with the regular updates and photos, which gave me immense peace of mind knowing my cat was in the best hands. What sets Jackie apart is her attention to detail and the extra care they provided. She went above and beyond, spending quality time with my cat and making sure Kiki was comfortable and happy in my absence. I highly recommend Jackie to anyone seeking a trustworthy, compassionate, and skilled cat sitter. She is a true gem, and I am so bummed that I’m moving away from Jackie’s area. Kiki will miss you Jackie!

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 $35.00. 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.
