I'm Sarah | Cat Sitting in New York, NY
I would love to be the one to give your kitties all of the affection and care they need in your absence, as I am a cat mama myself and absolutely know the apprehension about having to be parted from your fur babies! (I still get anxious about leaving her.) I worked for a reputable cat sitting agency for a long while, but now am a part-time personal assistant. I miss getting to meet and spend time with the cats of NYC however (I’ve met all kinds!), and am interested in getting that back into my life! I am a diehard “cat person”, always have been, although I love all animals really. I also am a Meowtel client myself, so I’ve definitely been on the other side of this! (Meowtel rocks!) My own sweet kitty, Willow, is very much on the shy side and it took a lot of time initially to gain her trust, so I know all about how that goes. I have also taken care of man...
Sarah is terrific, the model of what a cat sitter should be. Of course she did all the basic things perfectly: fed them correctly, cleaned the litter, played with them when they were in the mood, and sent me timely and detailed descriptions of how they were doing, all with photographs. But, on top of this, she gave me very good advice on how to improve their diet, the superiority of certain implements for litter cleaning to the ones I have, etc. The truth is that after years of cat-sitting and reading a vast amount of material on the care of domestic felines, Sarah has become a cat expert. An additional point: beyond her thoroughness and knowledge, the thing that really impressed was Sarah's ability to befriend my two cats. This wasn't easy -- one of them is extremely wary of new people and usually hides in a closet when I'm gone, and the other can be a little aggressive with strangers including new cat sitters. Yet, on the very first day Sarah sent me a photo of the two cats, sitting together (something they never do with me) and watching her with quiet curiosity. By the next day, Sarah and my cats and become friends. And when, after 5 days, I arrived home, I found both cats calm and less stressed than they ever have been before after my trips. In sum, Sarah is not your ordinary cat sitter. I can’t imagine I would rather have caring for Gertie and Gus when I’m away.

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.
