I'm Elaine | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

Hi I'm Elaine, a life long cat lover available for jobs in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Now offering a 10% discount for all first time clients! For the last 15 years I've been the primary caregiver to my adorable rescues, Toetoe and Meeker. Toetoe is a confident, adventurous boy with a bit of a bullying streak, while Meeker is a shy girl who takes her time warming up to people. They've taught me that no two cats are alike and how to figure out each one's needs. There's nothing more beautiful and satisfying to me than figuring out how to befriend a new feline. I once spent two and a half years patiently wooing a friend's cat until I was their best friend. I have an endless supply of love for the cats of the world and look forward to sharing it with my clients. As the parent to two elderly cats I have experience managing all sorts of behavioral and medical issues. This includes an extensive experience with a variety of medication methods such as oral pills (both hidden in food and given directly), oral liquids, eye/ear drops and topical skin creams. I'm also experienced at managing cones and other neck collars. My kitties mean the world to me and I've seen first hand how much of a difference a quality pet sitter can make. I'm...

Elaine is fantastic and sent updates and photos. One of our cats is very shy and Elaine did a great job with her too. I highly recommend her.

Elaine took great care of my elderly cat and I had such peace of mind while I was out of town! She did an extremely thorough intake with me before I left; she even made sure to ask where I stored the carrier in case Judith needed to go to the vet while in her care. Elaine will be my first choice for my next trip!

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.
