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

Let me know if I can open additional dates. I have a full-time job with flexible office/remote work, I can plan my day around drop-ins for care. I live in Lower East Side by Essex Market and work in Tribeca/WTC - i walk to/from work and visits around this area are ideal, but I'm happy to venture to nearby neighborhoods! I am a very calm and respectful person who tries to be a good steward in the spaces I'm invited into - I try to leave things in a better state than i find them and lea...

Skyler's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Skyler has looked after our cat Sam on two occasions now and we couldn’t be more pleased with Skyler’s work. We looked forward to the delightful daily pictures and updates from Skyler every day we were away. Skyler not only diligently provided fresh food and water, but also kept the litter box tidy, kept the apartment at a comfortable temperature, and provided Sam with play and affection. We highly recommend Skyler!

Skyler is amazing! He was so quick to respond to my reservation inquiry, and his communication was thorough and reliable before, during and after my reservation. Skyler was so attentive to my cat Sam, and I loved Skyler’s daily updates and adorable pics. Skyler will definitely be my first choice for cat care next time I need to travel.

Skyler did a great job taking care of my cat. She’s not the easiest and yet she seemed to have liked him a lot. Skyler was very responsible and very easy to communicate with.

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 $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.
