Meow! I'm Austin, a Cat Sitter in , NY

All of my cats lived long, pampered lives with amazing veterinary care. I have experience with older cat care, administering a variety of medications and subcutaneous fluids. Kix is a senior cat with special dietary needs, so I understand the importance of strict feeding guidelines. In my 9-5, I work as a designer and researcher, specializing in work with Latinx and LGBTQ+ communities. I also do work adjacent to Disability Justice and feel comfortable discussing client (and pet!) access needs. I love to share what I know and learn what I don’t. I am *officially* picking up cat sitting because I’ve done it so often for friends. I also work from home, and hanging out with cats is great motivation to get up and out of my apartment—especially in the ...

Austin was great and I plan to have him take care of the cats anytime I’m out of town. He got in touch quickly, made an effort to meet the cats and get a key, sent lots of pictures and updates while I was away, played with cats and gave them treats. He also left their bowls and the house clean. A+!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
