I'm Ariel | Cat Sitting in New York, NY

Hello pawrents and kitties! My name is Ariel, and I have been called the Cat Whisperer. I take pride in making sure your furry friends are well taken care of and treated like family, because they are. I love the personalities of cats. Every one is different, and their funny quirks bring me joy. I also enjoy finding out their different love languages: whether that is staring at you in the corner in a loaf, or snuggling up to you so you can rub their belly and purring. I have a very good reputation with shy cats, and I feel honored that they regard me as acceptable in their books. I have previous experience in giving liquid medication and pills to kitties and am a clean litterbox advocate. I have previously given liquid medication in food and water, and I am an expert at hiding pills in food. My efforts have helped kitties dea...

Learn More About Ariel

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love learning each cat’s specific quirks and personalities. Each of my clients is such an individual, and they all make me smile and laugh in different ways!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I have so many clients that I adore, but my favorites have to be Lady, Beverly, and Charlie. Lady lives with her dads and is a plump orange tabby with quite a lot to say and loves playing fetch! I visited her over Christmas, and she was thrilled with her new mouse toys to catch. Beverly is a little void whose love languages are aggressive head butts and screaming at you for food. She is such a sweet girl, and we rang in the new year together! And finally, Charlie. He is just the best cat: loving, gentle, polite, and playful. He tolerates his little puppy sister so well, but he knows how to put her in her place at the same time!

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

I treat your home like it is my own. I always make sure to lock up when I’m in the apartment or heading out. Plus, I have watchful eyes and ears so I can spot or sound out anything suspicious from a ways away!

Ariel's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Ariel did a great job taking care of Oliver and giving me detailed updates after the visit. Oliver has a lot of kitten energy and sometimes gets very overstimulated but Ariel was able to find the perfect balance when watching him and kept him mentally stimulated. I would definitely have her pet sit again!

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 $35.00. 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.
