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

Hello everyone! I am Yuriy and I am a vet assistant and an experienced cat sitter - I have 5+ years of experience in monitoring sick cats and conducting regular medical procedures (such as injections, cleaning, pills, etc.). Veterinary assistance and volunteering. As a vet assistant in Brooklyn Heights Veterinary Hospital I have decent experience with cats and providing different medical operations. Before that I was a volunteer at the Rescue House Adoption Center, San Diego - during my participation in the center, many single and bonded cats passed through me. Many of them were ferals and behaved quite aggressively, but scratched hands will not discourage me from making friends with a pet. Personal experience. As for my personal experience - unfortunately, a few years ago, two of my dear cats Max (16 yo) and Solomon (4yo) got really sick, which ...

Yuriy takes wonderful care of Louis. He sends very detailed updates and really understands cat behaviour. I feel relaxed when I’m away, knowing that Yuriy is taking care of Louis.

Yuriy is the absolute best! Incredibly thorough and professional, he graciously minded the unique needs of our little monster kitty - which included daily administration of oral medication, among many other things. It was clear that our 9 yr old tabby grew very comfortable with Yuriy during their visits, which he recapped in detail to us daily along with photos and videos. He absolutely went above & beyond in not only entertaining Fitz, but also ensuring his comfort. Yuriy also put a lot of effort into the daily photos; he sent us some of the best snaps we've EVER seen of our kitty bud, including a few lovely portraits. I'm so happy we found Yuriy ... He really took the stress out of leaving our little furball behind. We hope to have the pleasure of booking him again soon.

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.
