I'm Dena | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm currently recovering from knee surgery (injured in a bike accident), so I'm pausing on cat sitting until at least mid-July. I'm looking forward to taking on reservations with friends old and new when the time comes. Thank you for your patience and understanding as I heal. ❤️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hey there! I'm Dena, your cat's new favorite sitter! As a dedicated cat enthusiast, my journey from pawrent to professional cat cuddler has been nothing short of purrfection. From playful kittens to wise seniors to injured/healing furballs, I've got the knack for making every feline feel at home. Picture this: a shy fur baby who once hid away from every sudden movement, now insisting on relaxing cuddle sessions and endless pets. That's just one tale from my repertoire of feline success stories! My patience and genuine love for our whiskered friends speak volumes. I'm super flexible! Need someone to just make sure the fur babes are alright and to check on the food/water bowl levels? Need a low-energy lounge buddy or a high-energ...

Learn More About Dena

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

I've cat sat for more than two years with friends' cats.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I just love being around cats in general whether they want to be cuddled up with me or watch me from a safe distance.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I used to co-pawrent my kitten name Grace. She ended up staying with her other pawrents when we all moved (my new apartment didn't allow pets), but still visit and cat sit her to this day.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
