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

Cats bring me absolute JOY and I've loved being a cat sitter here in New York City--from their sweet loving "cat winks" and purrs, to their sassy way of up and leaving when they want to be left alone. I've always connected with their souls and my friends often call me the Cat Whisperer. I grew up with many dogs and cats in our home, my Mom used to show our dogs in competitions so she also had a deep love for animals. I see myself in cats--I'm an energetic introvert who enjoys socializing and being around people, but I also love my alone time and know when it's time to rest my mind. I've always been meticulously attentive to details, borderline OCD, which I think also makes me a great candidate for cat sitting--nothing will go unnoticed because that is how I live my life on a regular basis. If cats were considered royalt...

After one reservation, Dan will be my go to sitter from now on. He was great with Lani and even threw out the trash unprompted. He updated with video and pictures daily and spent quality time playing and bonding with her. I was a bit worried because my request was last minute, but Dan accepted and bailed me out. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a sitter in the city, he has my full confidence and trust!

Dan was wonderful! It was clear from the Meet and Greet that Dan is a Cat Pro - my shy and wary guys took to him immediately. I had total peace of mind while I was away. Dan sent pictures and videos every time he visited. He followed all my detailed instructions to the letter and accommodated my cats' quirks! He played with their favourite toys and gave them plenty of love and attention. I came home to two very happy cats, and a clean and tidy home. I will not hesitate to book with Dan again!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $32.00. 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.
