I'm Lara | Cat Sitting in New York, NY
I'm Lara, and my life has been graced with the company of cats since I can remember. I've not only been a lifelong cat owner but also a passionate advocate for their well-being. My understanding and love for these wonderful creatures deepened when I rescued a kitten named Charlie. His journey from being a timid stray to a confident, loving companion has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. As a lifelong pet owner and lover, it’s important to me that your cat feels loved and social even when you're away. I pride myself on being an expert in cat beha...
Lara is very thoughtful and has a big heart. We always try to book with Lara.
Lara is amazing! Very attentive care when she visits. My kitties get lots of play time and attention and I couldn't be happier to know they are well taken care of. I really appreciate her detailed updates during the visit. And she gets the cutest photos. I'm so thankful for Lara.
Lara is a great cat sitter! She is kind and sweet and my shy kitties love her. I know this because I get the most adorable pictures and videos of them playing and enjoying themselves. And lways accompanied by a detailed notes about the visit. When I have to be away from my cats, it's very comforting to receive such information. Puts my worries at ease. Highly recommend!
Lara was absolutely wonderful. It was the first time I didn't feel so guilty about leaving my cat behind. I wouldn't hesitate to have Lara catsit again!
Lara did an amazing job! I have two kittens who are a bit scared of new people. But first visit Lara was able to get them both out playing, eating, and even for a pet! Lara sent pictures and videos of the kittens each time she visited and a synopsis of each cat to let me know they were doing well. I have already booked Lara again for a weekend I will be away. I highly recommend her!

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.
