I'm David | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

I have been a lifelong pet owner and animal lover, having raised both cats and dogs since my early childhood. I am, by profession, an IT Specialist, but began, over the past few years, scaling back and working from home, which afforded me the opportunity to make cat-sitting a major focus. If asked about my general philosophy around cat-sitting, I would say this: many people view cats as being such self-sufficient creatures, and it’s easy for them to take for granted the notion that they are just fine when left alone. Being so familiar with them, and having spent as much time as I have taking care of other people's cats over the years, I realize how untrue this is. It is important for the cats, as well as their humans to have someone there--not just to feed them & clean their litter boxes, but to provide a consistent level of companionship and stress-relieving stimulation, if even only for a brief amount of time every day. For the most part, the cat leads this process. For one cat, play might provide the perfect stress release, and I'm there for it! For another, gentle belly-rubs and cuddles might be the need for which I am also always ready. This sort of approach is something that I feel is an ...

David is a fantastic cat care companion! We have five cats, and they can be a lot, but he handled everyone's needs and we felt so confident that we could relax with David on the job. Excellent communication, really good questions, keeping in mind the detail of everybody's needs, and even observations of other things going on around the house really shows he's paying attention. Sent great pics and videos of our silly guys having a good time, we're big fans.

This is the second time we had David sitting our cats. There’s a reason that we asked him back. He’s absolutely amazing and we would welcome him back anytime we go away. Our cats absolutely adore him. Our tenant upstairs also has a rather shy cat that David has seen to team. we love David, book him if he’s available.

David was great communicator. He also took amazing videos and brought his own laser and put on cat TV for our kitty. Thanks, David!

David went above and beyond to fit my cat’s care into his schedule, and even charmed my shy and wary cat who hates taking his medications. He’s the best!

There’s nothing more important than knowing the boys will be well looked after when we’re out of town. David’s our guy, and the boys are always in fantastic shape when we return home. Thank you!

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.
