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 an incredibly reliable and competent cat sitter who has been looking after my two cats with conflicting personalities and needs on many occasions. I trust him 100% when I have to go out of the country for long trips.

David took such excellent care of our kitten while we were away for a long weekend. It was our first time leaving him since we rescued him and so we were extremely anxious about the whole situation. Our little guy has A LOT of energy and is used to a good amount of attention and engagement throughout the day so we were unsure how he would do with us gone. David helped ease our worries by communicating with us throughout our trip including daily pictures and videos. He also went above and beyond to make sure our apartment was just as we left it and even brought us a can cover for the leftover wet food. We really felt like David took great care of our cat and would definitely recommend him!

I have worked with David numerous times for cat sitting my two fur babies. He’s spot on with his communication and photos. Your fur babies will be in good hands with him!

David is like Dr. Doolittle. He is so amazing with our cats. Not only does he feed them, do the litter box, all the normal things. But he’s interactive with them. He puts Cat TV on for them, please, with their toys with them. he sits pets and loves them. He is just such a fantastic Cat sitter. Amazing energy, super kind, great with the cats. We look forward to booking him again, I know our two cats really look forward to it as well. He also was so great in sending us update, photos andvideos. Really above and beyond.

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.

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.
