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

Cats are amazing. Wonderful and charming animals with loads of personality. I used to have cats since I was a kid. I have 2 beautiful kitties of my own now and we live in peace and harmony and learn tricks when they feel like it. I am an engineer by day and video gamer by night. I would be glad to look after...

Attention to Detail

This is the second time that we have booked with Ira and we were blown way (again!) but her responsiveness, attention to detail, love for our cat, and the amazing updates she sent us while we were traveling. She went above and beyond when she found out that we were traveling to celebrate our engagement, by buying us flowers! I highly recommend booking Ira for all your cat needs.

Ira was a fantastic catsitter! My cat needs medication everyday, and Ira had no problem giving it to him.

Ira was an amazing cat sitter! She showed up to our apartment for a walkthrough with kindness and asked really good questions. After we left for our vacation she kept us up to date with messages, photos, and videos of her visits. She even went above and beyond and took out the recycling and brought in the mail without us asking. She is great. highly recommend and will definitely book her in the future

Even though I made a reservation last minute, Ira was amazingly communicative and extremely helpful! She worked very hard with my (ridiculously skittish) cat and really went above and beyond to care for him. This was my first time using any kind of pet-sitting service, and Ira made the experience entirely worry-free. I cannot recommend her enough!

Ira was amazing. We recieved great pictures, videos, and updates showing us our kitties were well taken care of and Ira often caught great photos that made us laugh. Ira communicated with us and made sure to double check whether anything odd was normal behavior for our cats. We will definitely have Ira catsit again.

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.
