I'm Patricia | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

As a former zookeeper, I started my animal care career volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary where I cared for big cats. The most fascinating thing I have experienced is that all cats, regardless of size, have so many similar mannerisms. In my time as a zookeeper, I have worked with tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, snow leopards, servals and bobcats. The main part of the job included feeding, watering and cleaning up after the cats. Some of the more interesting parts of the job were training behaviors, enrichment and being a part of big cat surgeries. I have a cat of my own named Kiki. As the saying goes, she picked me and the rest is history. Kiki is a tuxedo cat with a perfect little mustache. Her favorite thin...

Patricia's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Pati was so incredible! She truly went above and beyond and our kitties absolutely loved her. She delivered medication to our asthmatic cat 2x every day via inhaler and updated us each time so we knew he was doing well. She sent wonderful pics, videos, and updates and we could tell the cats had a blast playing with her. Her passion for animals truly shines through and my husband, sister, and I can’t reccomend her enough :))

The absolute best of the best! I don’t know where to start! She took the best care of my 2 cats. Phil had last minute conjunctivitis and she wasn’t upset at all with the additional medication she now needed to provide. She sent me thorough updates 2 times a day with tons of pics and videos. I knew they were in good hands and the pics made my day while I was away and missing my fury kids. Will be using her again and I can’t recommend her enough!

Patricia did a fantastic job with my two cats especially through a difficult situation. One of my cat’s had diarrhea and was shy, and both were very picky eaters. Patricia was not phased by any of this and took the best care of them both. I have never had such a great cat sitter before! Definitey book her for your next trip!

Omg Patricia is THEEEE BEST!!!!! She exceeded my already high expectations. If she is available - book her. Super communicative, punctual, and my cat loved her. She administered medication easily and I felt so calm knowing my cat was in her care. I can't rave about her enough. 10000000/10

Patricia was amazing with my two cats! I needed a sitter at the last minute and she was very accommodating. when my flight was canceled she even made time to come the next day. My cats can be shy but they warmed right up to her. She made me feel very comfortable while they were in her care. And she takes the best pictures!!!

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.
