I'm Michaela | Cat Sitting in Astoria, NY
Hello there! I’m Michaela-nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by. I have been around cats all my life, including growing up with my fur siblings and volunteering at our local SPCA. I adopted my very own little guy, Jasper, when I moved to NYC in late 2020. He is such an awesome pal to have around and keeps the laughs going! Cat Care: I can perform the tasks needed for basic cat care, such as feeding, watering, grooming, and cleaning the litter box. I also have experience with administering insulin shots, giving medications, clipping nails, and even some clicker training! Playtime/snuggles are my favorite thing to do and I strive to make sure each cat’s needs are met while you are away. Don't worry-I will send you plenty of pictures and updates so you can join in the fun! I live in Astoria, Queens, and I would prefer to stay within the Queens/Manhattan area, as I do not have a car and need to rely on p...
Michaela is so patient with our little aby. My cat, Eevee gets very sad when I go out of town, but Michaela makes a special effort to comfort her and ensure she is very much cared for. Michaela is also great with "runner" kitties, like mine, which takes great talent. If you have a kitty who is a bit anxious and too curious, this is a sitter who is considerate and careful. Absolutely book her!
Michaela did a fantastic job taking care of our cat Moses! She updated us with every visit and kept our cat company and entertained while we were away for the weekend.
Michaela was communicative and asked great questions to make sure my Rupert was safe and in good hands. I’d recommend booking with Michaela!
Michaela was fantastic. Responsive to our questions and she took great care of our cats. Definitely will use her again, and recommend her.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $32.00.
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.
