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

Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my profile. I am a experienced cat sitter with over 100+ bookings. 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, inhalers, 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 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 fully respect your privacy and will leave your home as if you never left it. I can offer mail and p...

Vivian's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Vivian is truly the best! She is the only sitter where I have zero doubts my girls are getting the best care. My cats have two very different personalities and Vivian manages them both wonderfully. One of my girls also has chronic KD and needs quite a few supplements in her food. This is no problem for Vivian.

My wife and I have booked Vivian multiple times and she is excellent. We have a special needs cat that requires medication 2x a day and our second cat has a prescription diet. You are in great hands with Vivian!

Our cats are usually hesitant with strangers but they love Vivian. She's so wonderful with them, and she can handle all the various logistics of dealing with their different meds and dietary needs. We never book anyone else if we can help it!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
