I'm Melissa | Cat Sitting in Brooklyn, NY

Hello! I was the proud best friend of a spicy, feisty, bad-for-no-reason green eyed beauty for 17 years! She was my first cat, my homegirl, and the primary witness of my life. When she arrived all those years ago, I learned that I have an affinity and deep understanding for our little weirdo roomies. I respect and admire their way of navigating the world, their sense of independence and the uniqueness of their personalities. 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 lived with a cat, 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 time away is stress-free. About 5 years ago, I was out of town for an entire summer for work and had a great cat sitter taking ...

Melissa has to be one of the most thoughtful and thorough cat sitters on Moewtel. This was my first time entrusting the care of my cat to a stranger and I am so happy I did! Melissa was respectful and transparent in her approach by keeping me in the loop via text, videos and photos. Upon my arrival home, I was very impressed to see the litter trash complete disposed of and replaced with a new trash bag liner. Melissa clearly loves what she does and respects individuals and their spaces. Whether your cat needs basic care or some social love, Melissa is right for you! I will undoubtedly hire her again.

Melissa was an absolute dream!! A wonderful communicator, attentive, and so understanding! My little guy is a very anxious and shy cat and she would keep me regularly updated about feeding, water change, and even send me photos for peace of mind that he was okay! Would absolutely book again. A 10/10 experience!! Thank you Melissa!!

Melissa was fabulous, and bonded with Ginger readily which I could clearly see through the plentiful and great photos and videos she sent me daily. She was also a wealth of recommendactions, suggesting alternative litter and food to address Ginger's and my preferences since I'd gotten G. recently. I appreciated the care and time she spent, and also the foresight in questions she asked me in our meet-n-greet. Have already recommended her to friends.

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.

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.
