I'm Melissa | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

I have been the go-to cat sitter for a number of friends and co-workers long before the online accessibility of platforms such as Meowtel. As a traveler who lives with cats, I understand the peace of mind of having someone care for your bestie while being away on vacation, business or emergency trips. Cats need company and people need the reassurance that while away, all will be taken care of. I will work hard to make sure your trip is stress-free and that your feline companion is living their best life while you’re away from home. About 5 years ago, I was out of town for an entire summer for work and had a great cat sitter taking care of my cat. When my cat became unexpectedly very sick, it was such a relief that he was there to take care of her, take her to the vet, monitor her progress and send me updates.

Melissa was an amazing catsitter! We needed someone very last minute and she jumped in to save the day. She was responsive and thorough in her updates about her kitties (pics and videos) and seemed genuinely interested in their personalities and care.

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 $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.
