I'm Rainier | Cat Sitting in Guilderland, NY

Hi there! My name is Rainier, and I adore cats. I have a little calico at home, and she is such a goofball! She loves to play, and is very affectionate, but she is extremely food-motivated, so I have plenty of experience making sure that she doesn't get into food that she's not supposed to be eating. I have 1.5 years of experience as a veterinary assistant and am comfortable with giving medication, fluids, or any other accommodat...

Learn More About Rainier

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love cats and taking care of animals, and it has been a lot of fun to meet so many people's pets. It's also kinda cool to see the different care set-ups that people use and get ideas for my own cats.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 2 cats myself! Epi, a small and very silly calico with a single piece of kibble for a brain, and Duke Zagnar the Ever-Formal, a tuxedo who is too smart for his own good and always causing trouble. I love them both dearly.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I tend to let them do their thing. I'm not a fan of forcing animals into uncomfortable situations, so I make sure I take care of things like food and litterboxes quietly and let the cats approach me if they so choose.

Rainier took wonderful care of my socially uninterested kitty. They sent along photos when there was a sighting and daily updates. This was the first time I had someone watch my cat and it went as smoothly as I could have hoped!

I have two cats, one with a lot of (often changing) medical needs. Rainier was able to handle everything from last minute changes to uncooperative med times, prescription foods and was even able to charm my shy girl. This was by far the least stressed that I've been leaving my babies and I could not have asked for a better experience!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
