Meow! I'm Lucy, a Cat Sitter in , NY
Hello! I'm Lucy. Your New York City Professional Cat Lady. I provide in-your-home cat sitting services in the south Bronx, and Manhattan above 42nd St (including Hamilton Heights, Harlem, Upper West Side, Upper East Side, and Hells Kitchen). I have lived with cats all my life, and love and appreciate their eccentricities and quirks. If your cat enjoys attention, I will shower them with fuss. If your cat is more reserved, I will respect their boundaries. I love cats of all sizes, shapes, and personalities! I have two cats of my own - a beautiful pair of bonded brothers named Ferris and Storm. You can see them in my photos - Ferris is the black one, his brother Storm is the grey one. ^_^ In my day job, I am a licensed Physical Therapist (I enjoy looking after humans almost as much I enjoy looking after cats!). My non-feline-related interests include Broadway and musical theatre, politics, Australian football, and 90s music. If you need a mature, reliable, and trustworthy cat sitter in New York - look no further! I am also happy to take care of any other odd jobs while you're away, such as collecting mail, watering plants, or bringing in packages. I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19, including 2x boosters. I am also happy to wear a mask while I am in your home if you prefer - please let me know. Generally, my calendar opens up for bookings about three months in advance. I recommend booking as early as practical, to avoid missing out! Holidays in particular fill up very quickly - usually a month or more in advance. Christmas, Memorial Day, and Thanksgiving are my busiest weeks of the year; if you need cat-sitting around these periods book as early as you can to avoid missing out. Additionally - I usually take a vacation myself in late August and early September. So, I am typically NOT available over the Labor Day weekend, sorry. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q: Are you available on xyz date? A: Please refer to my schedule/calendar right here on my profile! (Scroll down to find my calendar). I keep my availability updated.

It was so amazing to have Lucy look after my cat while I was away! I received tons of updates and pictures and felt great knowing that my cat was in good hands :-)
Lucy was such a fabulous cat sitter for our cat. She was extremely attentive and detail-oriented and clearly loves all cats. She made the most of her time with our cat every day she visited and sent us so many great photos. We will definitely hire Lucy again, we felt at ease knowing she was checking-in.
Lucy is a fantastic cat sitter! She is clearly a pro and my cat warmed up to her right away. She provided detailed updates after each visit, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
Lucy is the best. Period. She is loving, nurturing, and attentive. She also takes the best photos I’ve ever seen. She went above and beyond. My partner and I AND my cats all felt very taken care of. She also took great care of my house. Cannot recommend enough. Seriously.
This was my second Meowtel experience with Lucy and I'm so glad to have found such a caring and reliable cat sitter! Lucy communicates clearly and consistently, with many photos, and takes excellent care of my cat. Highly recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.
Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
