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

Self-proclaimed cat lady here! I grew up with cats and I’ve had my own fur balls of love since I graduated college. I currently live with my foster fortune, Percy, who loves making biscuits and being a derpy void. I’m working on my PhD in cell biology and Percy has been my greatest support in this, from that playful look that tells me it’s time to take a break to the quiet paw on my arm after a rough day. My first cat was an older guy with several health issues so I have experience taking care of cats that need frequent medication. I’ve fostered with the ASPCA, from neonatal kittens to adult cats with various health concern, and elderly cats hold a speci...

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

I was cat sitting for my friends for many years, and have been a Meowtel sitter for several years now. My primary experience is with geriatric kitties, but I’ve fostered kittens as young as 5 days old.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Seeing the amazing cat-human relationships! It is so special to see that bond shared between cats and their people. Being able to earn the trust of both the human and the cat brings me immense joy. I love seeing shy kitties come out of their shells and be their authentic selves around me.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

My 11-year old baby named Percy is the light of my life. From the first day I fostered him, I knew he was home.

Attention to Detail

Ella was great caring for my shy kitty! She was attentive and saw to all her needs while still giving her space, to ensure my cat felt safe. Thorough, speedy updates with photos made it so I never had to worry at all!

Ella was responsible and caring, and did a great job with both our outgoing cat and our shy cat. She seemed to really enjoy the time she spent with them and vice versa, which gave us great peace of mind while we were away.

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 $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.
