I'm Vivian | Cat Sitting in New York, NY
Hello! My name is Vivian and thank you so much for taking the time to read my profile. I have been a cat person all my life, I love cats, I foster cats as my volunteer work and I am really great with shy cats, it’s kinda my specialty. Cats warmed up to me quickly because I am very patient with them. I like that I have to earn their love and respect, and through fostering cats at various stages, I learned to read their needs and understand their behavior more than your average cat sitter. In high school, I used to volunteer at Animal Medical Center (Midtown East) so I am comfortable with providing medications such as topical ointments, oral medications, and eye/ear drops. I currently work in the Flatiron area with very flexible hours so I can drop in before or after work anytime and available on the weekends. I am a very detail oriented, I will be taking detail notes and asking questions on how to care for your kitty during our meet and greet. I am a very timely, respectable, and clean person. What to expect when you book with me: Full attention to your cat(s). Daily videos/pics of your kitties, report on their food/poop habit if anything is out of the ordinary. Cleaning litter box, refresh food and water. Plenty of play and pets depending on your cat needs. I will leave your home as if you never left it. I can offer mail and p...
Vivian took care of my two girls for over a week. One of them has medical issues and Vivian was wonderful about giving her the proper supplements each meal. They both have very different personalities and she was able to adapt and connect with each of them quickly. I always looked forward to her updates. I would definitely recommend Vivian!
Vivian is amazing, my cat has 3 human friends. my partner, myself, and her.
Vivian took great care of my kitties while I was away, she sent tons of pictures and updates!
I had an exceptional experience working with Vivian. Went on a trip for two weeks, the longest I have ever left my cat, and Vivian made sure to take detailed notes during our meet and greet and provide regular updates and videos when I was away. She went above and beyond brushing my cat twice a day and making sure she was active. My cat takes a bit to warm up to new people but she was purring with Vivian after only a day or two which was very reassuring to see. Highly recommend Vivian and look forward to working with her again soon!
she made friends with my extremely shy street cat that hasn’t let strangers pet her before. she is our sitter now.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.
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.
