I'm Antonio | Cat Sitting in Elmhurst, NY

Aside from my natural connection to all animals, I have an affinity for cats. We share similar traits, mannerisms and character. I've cared for 2 cats while living with my family, and once I left, still maintained care for them whenever needed including a weekly visit. Oreo and Smokey are their names. Oreo was cared for 19 years until his recent passing, while smokey (a rescued street cat) is now 12. Neither were special needs cats until smokey developed diabetes, which we were able to reverse and keep in check! However, now, in my new living space, I own a special needs white Persian cat. Going on 3 years old in November 22, we took him in from owners claiming they could not care for him anymore, in February 22. And apparently he was passed around twice, making us his 3rd (and final) owners. His prior caregivers did not care for him properly and we had a lot of work ahead of us. He was all matted and in pain from it. His eyes were filthy and he could barely keep them open. Wasn't neutered affecting his health. He was miserable and I could feel it. But now, he has a forever home, gets cleaned, groomed and treated like a prince daily. He's happy, excited to see us all the time, and most importantly,...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?
I've cat sat for the last 10 years for family cats and a my best friends kitty. I've spent more than 60 minutes at a time caring for them as I was required to watch them for several hours, days, up to 1 week at a time.
What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?
Making a new connection to another feline friend. Bringing my care and love to an animal that is in need of it at the time. Letting them know that more than just their owners are worth meeting, knowing and having fun with! Love experiencing all the different personalities out there!
Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?
I currently care for our white Persian, whose name is Blankie. Looking to add a companion for him in the very near future when we make our move to our new living space. 🙂

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.
