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

Hi there! I'm Sydney and live in Harlem, NY with my husband and our two cats, Lif the Lap Cat, and Ash the Purr Monster. I grew up an animal lover in small town Iowa, and have spent over 12 years pet sitting for nearly all of my friends and family. I have cared for pets of all ages and temperaments, administering medicine, and ensuring they are comfortable and happy. I am extremely detail-oriented and guarantee that I will fulfill all of your cat's needs, especially if they are considered at risk or have other health issues. I treat my cats like family, and I promise to do the same for yours when you can't be with them. Your peace of mind is my utmost goal! While I am willing to make exceptions in terms of travel, please note that I do not have a car to get around, and rely solely on public transportation....

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

I've sat for cats with many different needs for over a year now professionally. However, I've had cats of my own for almost 25 years, and I have dealt with many different purrsonalities and tempurrments. ;)

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love seeing my clients happy when I'm able to provide the quality of care they're looking for to their kitties. I also enjoy meeting new cats and forming relationships with them.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My favorite cat sitting surprised me! She was a little timid and shy cat, but friendly upon our first meeting. Throughout the sitting, she blossomed and we developed a fun routine together, with her getting closer and closer each day, until I literally couldn't get her off my lap! I tend to bond quicker with male cats, who are usually more needy and want attention, so this girl kitty really swept me off my feet!

Attention to Detail

Sydney always does a great job with our senior cat, Olive. We love having her watch our sweetie and know she's in good hands.

Sydney did an incredible job looking after our kitty Valley while we were away. Her photo updates were perfect and Valley was super relaxed around her. I highly recommend Sydney!

Sydney was wonderful with my older, stuck-in-her-ways gal. She was communicative and punctual. I was nervous to leave my cat since she has been on a new medication regime, but Sydney put my nerves at ease! I will definitely be booking again with her.

Sydney did a wonderful job caretaking Tiger! He is shy and scared, and she understood how to interact with him, and was able to administer his medication without any issues. She sent me daily updates so that I knew how he was doing and felt comfortable while I was away.

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.
