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

Hello! I'm Sophie. I am originally from Minnesota and moved to New York recently for graduate school. I spent the first 18 years of my life with 3-5 cats at all times of varying ages, temperaments, and health. I tragically now live in a pet-free building and would love to take care of your cats and give them my excess cat care! I can guarantee lots of pets, pictur...

Sophie is the best! So good with our cats - they love her. And so responsible and responsive. We would book her for every trip if we could.

Sophie is the best! Came over ahead of time to get familiar with the cats and the lay of the land in our house. Fed the cats on time and played with them lots. She gives us lots of peace of mind when we go out of town that the cats will get as much love as we give them when we’re home.

Sophie was wonderful. Our shy guy quickly warmed up to her, and she went above and beyond when the cats hacked into their food dispenser. We look forward to working with her again.

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.
