I'm Gwen | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

Hello, I'm Gwen! I'm 27 years old and live in Brooklyn. I've been an animal lover my whole life ever since I bonded with my neighbor’s outdoor cat Sunset when I was 3. I fostered-to-adopt my first cat the second I started living on my own - when rescued he had a recurring stress-induced eye infection that required surgical intervention. After I fostered him through his surgeries his eye cleared up and he has been stress-free ever since. A year later I adopted him a companion and I'm happy to say I found his soulmate. I can think of no better way to spend my days than hanging out with and taking care of your cat(s)! I have experience with oral and topical medica...

Gwen's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Gwen is the best! They went above and beyond watching our cat while we were out of town. We loved all the photos and updates and felt so safe knowing Gwen was there for our cat. Will 100% be booking Gwen again next time we go away!

Our life has been a bit unexpected and Gwen has come in to steady it with our cat while we’ve been out. Our cat doesn’t trust anyone outside of her fur pawrents but seems to be warming up to Gwen, no easy feat!

Gwen did an amazing job with both my cats Mika and Podo! She made sure to give plenty of playtime for Podo, made shy Mika feel comfortable enough to come out of her shell and even gave the humans an update on the clean litter boxes. We were very impressed with her attention to detail. She also took the best pictures for our updates. Would highly recommend Gwen to any cat parent!

Gwen was great to work with and clearly knows cats. My babies were happily in her lap by the end of a short trip :)

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

The average price for a cat sitter is $32.00.

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.
