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

Hello! I've been catsitting for quite a few years now (although I've lived with cats my entire life) and it's one of my favorite things to do. There’s nothing I love more than getting to spend time with them and I recently left my job to do this full time. It’s such a joy and honor to ha...

Learn More About Jess

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

I've been doing it around 6 or 7 years now and it's been an incredible experience. I actually just quit my job to do this full time because it's just such joy to spend the day with cats.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Getting to see the personalities of each cat. They're all so different and some are loving and some are shy and some are playful and some love to just watch. It's a new experience with every new cat and I really love that.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I've had a lot that I've loved but I've recently spent a few nights at a place where I've watched the cat before. She was just so loving and would curl up on me and we spent a lot of time together bonding. I also know from her parents that she was the least anxious she's ever been when they've returned home from a trip which was great to hear.

Jess's Reviews

Attention to Detail
Anne Marie

Jess stayed on top of our two cats' eating over the days we were gone and tried to find ways to encourage the shyest one to eat while she was there. She made sure to keep us updated on what was happening while she was in our home so we could help troubleshoot if possible. Thanks for looking after our two kitties!

This is the second time that I have used Jess. She showed up each day as requested and is easy to get in touch with. I would highly recommend Jess. Angus, my cat, would too :)

This was the second time Jess took care of our 3 cats and for a much longer trip (12 days!). Amazing care taker of our little furballs!

Jess was great. She sent pics and updates for every visit. I have one finicky cat who doesn't like strangers, and she did well with him so I was really happy. Already have more visits booked for my next get away.

Jess did a fantastic job with my cat. She is very caring and sent daily updates with photos. She was patient with giving my cat her medicine and kept her content with playtime. I highly recommend Jess.

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 $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.
