Meow! I'm Elaine, a Cat Sitter in , 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...

My cats all loved Elaine, even the very picky guy who she had to medicate against his will so I think that speaks for itself.

Elaine was a great sitter! Even though our cat is extremely shy of strangers and tends to disappear, Elaine strove to get at least one photo of him to send to us, and regularly reported after each visit, making sure that he was eating and using his litter box. She’s friendly, prompt, responsible, and we couldn’t ask for more. We have no doubt that if we had hired her for longer than a few days, our cat would have warmed up to her. Definitely would hire again!

Elaine is excellent and responds quickly. I could tell my kitties were comfortable, and she handed oral meds confidently!

I hired Elaine for 3 overnights with my 5 month old kitten and she gave little Luna fantastic care. It was wonderful to get a daily summary in both words and photos/videos and I could tell Luna was comfortable with her. She left my home very clean. I highly recommend Elaine!

Elaine was a super communicative and reliable cat sitter for our two very shy feral rescues. She was incredibly patient and attentive to detail, and very knowledgable about our litter/feeding system. Highly recommend!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
