I'm Catherine | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

Tu gato es mi gato... That is to say, I will provide the same tender, love, and care and commitment to your fur baby as I do to mine! Hello, my name is Catherine and I'm a young professional who works remotely in Brooklyn in South Williamsburg! I'm a proud cat owner, lover, volunteer, and sitter who has interacted with kitties of various personalities from the super snuggly to the ever temperamental. I have had many years of successful experience with cat visits, overnight catsitting, and volunteering at shelters. I can adapt to different requests and needs as necessary. Due to my remote work arrangement, I can also be more flexible with home visit timings as long as you provide advance notice on your preference. Currently I have an adult orange tabby named Pigi who is curious, playful, and just the sweetest boy. He is becoming fast friends with my roommate's recently adopted precious, silly tu...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I've been providing catsitting services on apps for over 6 years as well as for friends and acquaintances, making visits and boarding their kitties. I've always had great experiences with the clients and kitties, no matter the personalities, needs, and communication styles.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I catsat for a client who became a recent cat parent and brought in a stray kitten from her backyard. She was super nervous and timid but over the course of days/weeks, it was so endearing to see her open up so warmly and sweetly each visit, approaching closer and with more confidence. I was also able to provide my experiences with cats, whether it was interpreting and bringing out different behaviors or giving recommendations on feeding schedule, toys, and interactions. I loved getting to know the kitty and client more over several visits and being a reliable sitter for them.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I usually ask some initial questions to understand the clients needs for the reservation including visit schedule/constraints and preference for the meet-and-greet to ensure I can meet their needs. Then we set up either a virtual or in-person meeting where I have a set of questions to go through to fully understand the logistics of the visit as well as get to know their kitty more comprehensively. I always offer opportunity for any questions from the client or additional notes/reminders during and after the meeting. I explain my typical process and communication style, aligning it to the client's preference. I keep in close contact with the client up to and during the visits to ensure their kitty (and home!) is in good hands.

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

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $35.00. 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.
