Meow! I'm Cate, a Cat Sitter in , NY

Hello Manhattan-Only Cat Parents! I'm Cate, and have been a cat parent for over 20+ years. I love all animals, but cats and kittens have a special place in my heart. As a cat sitter, I've been able to give great chin rubs to the shy, clip the nails of the spiciest, clean the litter box of the worst, brush out a mat or two, and even given insulin shots to a diabetic senior. I respect a family's home with an English butler's discretion, and each kitty is their own mini-lion that is to be treated like a royal. I look forward to cat sitting your sweet, shy, frisky, silly or sassy purr baby! I'm happy to administer: Topical ointments/flea prevention, eye and ear drops, pills, insulin injections. I've done most of these procedures for my own cats. I am not "professionally trained" in these...

Cate is the perfect cat-sitter. She was on time, reliable and most importantly, my cat likes her! She fed and played with my cat, and sent me photos which assured me that all was well. I would certainly recommend Cate, for sure and look forward to hiring her again soon.

Cate guided my cat through two milestones: his first whole day all by himself and then, a week later, his first extended time alone while I was gone for a long weekend. Cate was the perfect friend to Gummo, making sure he had food, water, and a clean litter box for each day and keeping him company with playtime. Cate was also a wonderful sitter to me as the cat parent, always on top of communication and sending beautiful photos and videos to let me know everything was well. I would recommend Cate to anyone!

Cate was a fantastic cat-sitter and I highly recommend her services! She was comprehensive in her questions about my cats, updated me daily with pictures and information, and took special care to keep my apartment tidy. I hope to continue working with Cate whenever I need cat-sitting in the future!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
