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. I would hope to be able to provide that level of confidence for fellow cat owners when they travel. I also consider myself a bit of a cat photogr...

Melissa took great care of our cat while we are away. She sent lots of photos and videos, which was a comfort, and I could tell from them that our cat felt very comfortable with her. She was respectful of our home and even watered some thirsty plants in our absence. We are very grateful she was able to fit us in to her busy holiday schedule.

Melissa has become my go-to for taking care of Ginger. Her communications are frequent and the photos and videos she sends fabulous. Definitely recommend her, and I have to other friends.

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.

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

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.
