I'm Samantha | Cat Sitting in Mount Sinai, NY

Hi! My name is Sam and I would love to take care of your cats while you're away! I'm 24, and have been pet sitting for almost ten years now! I take care of a bunch of feral cats in my backyard, I have a three legged cutie named Tiger and a kitten named Bitty who live inside my house! (they are formal ferals turned insanely spoiled). I am available to stay overnights, or just do drop in visits where your pets will be loved and taken care...

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

i have been pet sitting since i was about 15! i have worked in a pet daycare facility with both cats and dogs, have volunteered in an animal shelter, and have rescued/ rehabbed many feral cats in my backyard! i love animals so much and being able to be a safe space for them in this scary world is such an important thing to me.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

i love getting to know each cat's personality! taking care of feral cats has taught me that they are all so different, even if they're related! each cat has something special and have so much love to give. i love being able to share that experience and make them feel as comfortable as i can while their owners are gone.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

i take care of a bunch of feral cats outside-- yes i've named them. I'm too attached. their names are cheeto, pickle, clover, freckle, princess, soup, and mustache! inside, i have two feral cats who have turned into super spoiled indoor/outdoor cats- their friends are still outside so we let them in the backyard. One is a three-legged cat named tiger, and the other is a mini cat named bitty. i just lost tigers brother over the holidays, his name was muffy. he was the biggest feral cat baby there ever was- and decided he liked the indoor life and clinging on to me at all times better. i miss him every day.

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 $29.00. 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.
