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

Chosen by Bastet. A millennia ago, I labored as a vet tech in an animal shelter where I was responsible for the daily care of hundreds of cats idols every single day. There were kings and queens, wars, famine (allegedly), and at times, at least once a day, even the "end of the world" was foretold. During this period, an event known as "The Great Attack" took place. Teleporting from a faraway realm, a vicious villain known as "The Squirrel" attacked the cat citadel by entering through an open window portal. After battling this seemingly immortal creature, I was victorious, but sustained injuries. The feline missionaries provided me with a rabies vaccination to treat my ailment. Because of my protection and loyalty to the citadel, the great deity Bastet released me from my duties and bestowed upon me, two ageless creatures to protect me on my crusades across the world. In return I was asked only to free, protect, and care for others. I accepted this great honor. Today under the guise of a fintech/blockchain executive, I continue to perform my duties within the confines of lower ...

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

When was I not a cat sitter... hmm let me think... I've been working with cats for over 20 years.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Making new small and regular sized friends. It's a small world after all! I also love taking photos and making fun videos of all the cat acrobatics or sleepy timez.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

When the kitties showed the belly... And I petted it... But the kitty was in fact playing a PRANK on me and instead it was actually PLAYYY TIMMME. Trophies of the game.

Can’t wait to have Amik back! A true professional who deeply cares for cats. When I noted our cats odd eating habits he not only recommended new food but brought some for Bob to try. He is thoughtful and helpful - the best of the era.

Amik is consistently stellar with my 2 senior cats. He is a true cat whisperer and sends the best updates. I've gotten invaluable tips from him too, as he also has 2 senior cats. I know they're in good hands with Amik.

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.
