I'm Canaan | Cat Sitting in Buffalo, NY

I’ve had cats as pets since I was 2 years old. My first cat's name was Victor. He was a quiet cat, loved laying in the sunlight and drinking the milk out of my cereal bowl. He developed diabetes after a steroid shot he needed after he snuck out and got into an altercation with another cat. For a couple of years we gave him insulin shots 2x a day until unfortunately, it became too much for him and we said goodbye after 13 awesome years. After a couple of months, we started looking at cats again. I found a kitten that was about 3 months old online, and my mom and I went to go meet him. While at the foster home, we met the kitten, but another one who was about 2 months old kept climbing up to us to give us hugs. We left with 2 kittens that day, instead of just the 1 we intended. We named them Spencer (named after Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds) and Albus (named after Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter). In addition to administering insulin to Victor, I have experience with other medications as well. Spencer, as a kitten in the foster home, developed an eye infection from a herpes virus. It flared up occasionally and I’d have to give him eye drops and liquid amoxicillin. At 13 years, Spencer was diagnosed with Lymphoma and requi...

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

I have been pet sitting since I was a teenager. In 2019 I began working for a local cat sitting company, which ended up closing in 2020 due to COVID. I loved it so much and missed visiting kitties, when I found Meowtel I was so excited and applied right away. I have about 15 years of years of pet sitting under my belt.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love caring for animals and I love that my clients feel their cats are safe. When they tell me they were not worried about their babies and could enjoy their vacation or going out for the night it truly makes my heart happy. And I love spending time with the kitties!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes! I have senior cat, Albus (named after Albus Dumbledor from Harry Potter). He is an American Shorthair. He was born in 2010 and is 14 years old as of this April 2024! I also have a kitten, I adopted her at 9 weeks old in April 2024! Her name is Iris Meadow. She is a black domestic short hair! She’s my baby girl 💕

My second time with Canaan sitting and as always, she does a great job. I love how my kitty takes to her and even cuddles when she’s not much of a cuddler! Her updates are outstanding and she even brought in my mail. Canaan always goes above and beyond!

I was so nervous about leaving Monky for our vacation but after meeting Canaan my fears were assuaged. Monky took to her right away (when she is normally very skittish around new people.) Canaan just has this kitty charming way about her and knows exactly how to connect. I was impressed with her attention to detail for everything kitty related but also just being in your home, like for mail and plants. I didn't ask for this but she took care of the mail anyway! I had her come visit daily for five days. I specified morning or evening on two of the days, which she diligently made work, but the rest of the time, she nailed down a consistent schedule which I think helped Monky to feel more comfortable when she came over. Playtime was adorable. (As I saw in the many photos and videos she sent.) She played with the toys like they were her prey and switched things up if they weren't responding. Playtime was a priority for me and she did not disappoint. It was obvious there was a great deal of time that was spent just hanging out too. She reported on what she fed her, how well Monky ate, and what she was interested in (or not interested in.) She gave her a variety of puzzles and treats which I had laid out for her to use at her will. The litter detail was most impressive of all. Not only did she pay attention to what she scooped but she even scooped out all the small clumps so the litter was immaculate when I got back. I really appreciate the photos and videos since I will have them forever. I get to see Monky in a new light and with a new friend. I will only use Canaan for future sittings. I had the best vacation without any worries and now Monky is acting like we never left!

Canaan was a perfect fit for our picky eater solo kitty. We got videos of playtime and mealtime, and a so happy to know that we have found a kind and knowledgeable kitty sitter for our little cat.

Canaan was responsive to my late booking from the word "go". My diabetic cat's insulin dose increased slightly since Canaan had last seen her so she called to make sure she had it right. It was garbage day and she was kind enough to bring the bins in from the curb. She reported back on each of my 3 cats. I'm very happy with Canaan's service. I've recommended her to a friend of a friend in need.

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 $30.00. 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.
