I'm May | Cat Sitting in Astoria, NY

Hello cat parents! My name is May and I live in Astoria, Queens. Having always been a cat lover, during the pandemic I finally got to adopt my own cat - a chubby tabby cat named Emmy. Her big green eyes and big personality taught me so much and totally rearranged my life priorities. Through her I learned how to be crafty and creative (making houses with post office boxes, building tunnels with bubble wrap...etc), how to build and respect each other\'s boundaries, and more importantly the healing power of a head bump and morning kneadi...

Learn More About May

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

Since I was a child I've been tasked to look after a neighbor or friend's pet, and have kept doing so ever since I moved to New York. Only in the past 2 years I started cat-sitting professionally for my visits and taken on new clients like friend of friend.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Getting to know the cat's character and how to best interact with them; make them comfortable while their persons are away. It bring me absolute joy to get a slow wink from them or see them flop their belly to show their ease - that's when I know I'm doing my job.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

Give them space and make sure their basics needs are met (foods, water, clean litter box...etc). I do not force them to show up or come close, everything needs to be at their own pace and I try to show them that I respect that.

May took the absolute best care of our cat. It was so clear to us through May’s super-detailed and updates, videos, and pictures that our cat was so comfortable and happy with May. May followed all care instructions perfectly and communication was amazing. We can’t wait to have May sit for us again.

May was extremely responsive and kept me updated on how my cat was doing with cute photos, videos and texts. He was happy and contented when I got home, so I know he was well taken care of. I will definitely use May in the future and can’t recommend her enough!

May is warm, kind, compassionate, and understands cats well. My cat was so well taken care of while I was away and she sent me so many pics and videos! my cat is usually very shy around new people but it’s a testament to May’s lovely and easygoing demeanor that he came out and played with her. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

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.
