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

Saying I'm obsessed with animals is putting it lightly - I'm the type of person who will sit in a corner during a party petting the resident cat and trying to slow blink it into loving me. I've grown up with cats and my love for them hasn't stopped. I've put more than 500 hours into fostering every type of cat at the local NYC ASPCA, from two-week-old babies to elderly cats. I've administered oral (pills and liquid syringes) and topical medications, helped treat ringworm kittens and applied compresses for new mama kitties. I've taken multiple trainings to help socialize shy cats and I'm an expert at cat body language. My goal in life is to pet every cat I come in contact with and my goal for YOU is to treat your fur baby like my own! I've scooped hundreds of litter boxes (and vacuumed so much litter), refreshed countless water and dry food bowls, and played with so many cat toys I...

Learn More About Sara

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

I've been cat-sitting for a few years now, both boarding and in-house visits. I love having the opportunity to get more cat time in and always make sure to keep the parents updated via text check-ins and photos so they know their baby is well taken care of.

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

I'm interested in learning about the cat's routine and mannerisms so I know how to first approach and a little bit more about what they are like, including favorite toys, treats and habits. I want to make sure both cat parents and fur babies are comfortable and every experience is a positive one!

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.
