I'm Gwen | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

Hello, I'm Gwen! I'm 28 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 medication administration and have perfected my eyedropping technique thanks to my brave rescue cat who has *seen* it all...

Gwen is super communicative and sent thoughtful updates from their visits. My cat is very shy and easily frightened and she seemed very comfortable with Gwen.

Gwen is the BEST cat sitter and we will always go to them first when we need a sitter for our two cats. Their updates are detailed and they send great pictures. Our younger kitten has a lot of energy while our older cat is more chill - Gwen always finds a way to give them both attention and love. Most of all, they are reliable and communicative. We cannot recommend Gwen enough!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
