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

Hello! My name is Robyn. I’m an NYC-based pro pet sitter and writer with several years’ experience in kitty cat care! Red Cross certified for Emergency CPR and Feline First Aid (2023 certified). A lifelong cat lover, I understand that compassion and patience are required in the care of our feline friends. As a professional animal caregiver, I take my role seriously. We are our pets’ defenders, their protectors. Your cat is a member of the family, deserving of safety, respect, empathy, boundaried care, and, most importantly, love. As a cat care provider, it is my job to maintain stability and hygienic safety. That means personalized consultations about your ongoing kitty care schedules. Consistency and sticking to the routine are key! When offering care, I value transparency, communication, and daily check-ins. That can be done over your preferred ...

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

I have been providing professional cat care for 5 years now! I ADORE cats; their grace, their independence, and their ability to keep us on our toes. My favorite job was caring for rescue kitties in Costa Rica--a memory I will always cherish.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Unfortunately, my dad had a severe allergy so we never had a cat growing up. So, I took it upon myself to fall in love with OPC... that's Other People's Cats! My partner is also allergic which prevents us from keeping our own cute kitty in the home. Alas! My obsession with OPC continues...

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Even the most social of cats establish boundaries, and a great cat sitter not only understands this, but can empathize too. I'd encourage cat parents to look for sitters that are deeply appreciative of a cat's inner nature; they train you, not the other way around! A great cat sitter will want to determine your cat's ideal resting state, and catalog how they respond in your absence. A cat sitter with active listening skills usually implies that they're presently minded. The attention a sitter pays to you, the parent, is the attention they'll bring to your cat.

Robyn was so amazing, better than we could have asked for! We rarely leave our kitties alone but felt very at ease with Robyn caring for them. We will definitely be hitting her up again the next time we need a cat sitter.

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.

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.
