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

Hi! If you're looking for a reliable, trustworthy cat sitter to take care of your fur baby, I'm your gal! I love cats, but because my co-op board doesn't allow kitties, I can't have one of my own. I'd love to give my love and care to your cat(s). Some things about me: I am trustworthy, reliable and not too nosy (aka I won't rummage through your home), and I'm great at following directions. I run my own business and don't need the money so I donate most of my earnings on Meowtel to cat organizations in NYC. I love cats, their presence makes me happy and I've pet kitties all over the world: USA, Turkey, Taiwan, Japan, Peru, etc. I understand it's a stressful situation for your kitty to not have you around and will do everything I can do maintain their routines and to care for them. I love snuggle/petting time, brushing time, and also playing with toys/laser time. Since I work for myself, I have a very flexible schedule and can take care of your kitties most times. My favorite is when I'm petting a cat on their head and they turn their face ...

Learn More About Shuai

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

I've been catsitting on Meowtel for a couple years and LOVE it so much!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I just enjoy the company of cats. They're such majestic creatures, each with their own personalities and I like trying to figure out what each kitty wants/needs.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I visit them for a meet and greet to get to know their kitty, and learn about where things are/feeding schedule/etc. I like taking plenty of pictures and notes so I can make sure everything is done just right. Then during the booking, I make sure to send an update every visit with information about the cat's activities/food intake/etc and I usually create a photo album to dump hundreds of photos of the kitties.

Shuai's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Shuai was amazing! Arrived at the same time each day and sent so many amazing pictures of my kitties. Her updates were also detailed and made me feel much better about leaving them for a few days.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $35.00. 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.
