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

Hello everyone! I am Yuriy and I am 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.). Volunteering. The last place of my service for the benefit of cats is volunteering at the adoption center Rescue House, 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 very sick, which left me no choice but to become their personal nurse. Outside of cat sitting I am a part-time game developer and thanks to remote work I had the ...

Yuriy has been excellent with communication and details. I received multiple pictures of my cat playing and relaxing. he took the time to play with him, cuddle him. I am very happy with the service that Yuriy did in my absence. It made my trips away from home so much relaxing as I know my cat was perfectly taking care for. I definitely will recontact Yuriy for my next trip. I will definitely recommend Yuriy to anyone who asked. Thank you very much! Amalie

Yuriy was a fantastic sitter. I have two cats, one of which is diabetic. The diabetic cat requires insulin shots twice daily, which Yuriy handled extremely well. Yuriy was responsive, responsible, and very detail oriented. It's hard to find sitters that can deal with my cat's special medical requirements as well as the behavioral issues that come with it. I can't recommend Yuriy highly enough!

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

The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.

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.
