I'm Cate | Cat Sitting in New York, 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 "...

Attention to Detail

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!

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.
