Learn More About Karina

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

I’ve taken care of so many kitties over 20 years and actually took care of 20 cats last year (on and off this app).

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My favorites were Mir and Lucie. They went wild for Churu and their toys. Mir can’t hear and has a neurological disorder that makes him walk a little wobbly but that doesn’t stop him from living his best life, like riding my back like he’s a baby goat. Lucie has asthma but she still plays so much. They were hilarious together and I loved taking care of them.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I do! Her name is Katy and she’s a 15yo senior kitty. We adopted her three years ago and she was 19lbs! It’s been a beautiful journey giving her a retirement home and she’s now down to 13.8lbs! 🥳

Karina's Reviews

Attention to Detail

It was obvious from the many images and videos that my cats loved and trusted her. They played, they showed their bellies, and were even comfortable enough to use the box in front of her! I came home to happy babies and that makes traveling feel easier.

I'm so glad I found Karina for my Ryuk ! he's kind of a silly guy and he's been a little standoffish with pet sitters in the past but he must've felt at ease with Karina. He has hyperthyroidism and we think hyperesthesia that he takes meds for and she was wonderful taking care of him. She gave amazing videos and pictures so I knew Ryuk was having a good time !! and also gave me a report of the visit after. I feel like I can go on vacation without worries !!! thank you Karina I know Ryuk would love to see you next time !!

Karina was above and beyond in all ways possible! my cat loved her at first sight, she consulted me on an ongoing litterbox problem, was so loving towards my cat that my 3-day leaved could not have been better in terms of cat concerns. This is my second time coming right back to Karina, because my somewhat shy-tempered kitty loved her immediately. When we returned I could see in her eyes she was reassured and warmly taken care of. Karina thinks for her like her own cat, viewing her environment to imagine what might be best for her, and do things out of her expected responsibility to absolutely ensure their comfort. I am so moved by her, and Yubi (my kitten) and I are forever helped by her. Thank you, and I will keep coming back to Karina as long as I live in nyc. I'm so grateful for this Meowtel service and the chance to connect with Karina in this way!! Thank you!!

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.
