I'm Marina | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

100+ completed reservations on Meowtel! New client? Enjoy a 10% discount on your first booking with me, automatically applied at checkout :) Growing up on a small farm, I was always surrounded by a multitude of pets, from dogs to chickens to, of course, cats! My love for animals has only increased as I've gotten older, and I've been a cat mom for over 15 years. I currently live with Ella, my 9 year old maine coon mix (starring in my gallery photos). I am based in Bushwick, Brooklyn and regularly cat sit in the area, including Bushwick, Ridgewood, East Williamsburg / Williamsburg, and some parts of BedStuy (please contact me prior to booking if you live in Bedstuy - I can only service areas off the J train at this time). I also care for several feral colonies in Brooklyn, and am known for always traveling with cat treats wherever I go! From the many years I've spent with my own pets to the hours I've dedicated to...

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

While I have been cat sitting for friends, family members, and neighbors for as long as I can remember, I started sitting with Meowtel in 2022! It has been an incredible couple of years - I have met so many amazing cat parents and cute kitties in my neighborhood.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I have always been a cat lady - cats seem to find me wherever I go, and I’m always so sad I can’t take them all home! Cat sitting has allowed me to meet so many cute, sassy, playful, interesting kitties in my neighborhood. I love discovering all of their different personalities, getting to know what they like, and of course, earning their trust and love! It is always so gratifying when I meet a shy cat who goes from barely wanting to be around me to rubbing up against me as soon as I walk in the door. Plus, I love taking pictures of cats and showing their parents a side of them that they might have never seen!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have a 9 year old Maine Coon Mix named Ella! I adopted her when I first moved to New York, and she has been the love of my life ever since. She can be a little shy with strangers, but warms up quickly and is such a love bug. Ella enjoys chasing her feather wand, watching the birds on my balcony, and sitting in the sun 🐱

Attention to Detail

We loved Marina so much! she took great care of our kitties and was so responsive and thoughtful throughout. She even left us a sweet handwritten note for when we returned. We will absolutely book for Digit & Bolo again!

Marina did an amazing job watching our cat Bo Bo while my wife and I were gone for 3 weeks on our honeymoon. She sent wonderful photos every day, really spent time playing with, and keeping Bo Bo company. When we returned, the apartment was in great shape, and it was clear she was super proactive with cleaning the litter box, filling water, etc. She was super communicative throughout the whole trip, and we would totally trust her with Bo Bo in the future. It is very clear that she is a true cat-lover :)

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.
