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

Hi, My name is Cara and, my other job is being an Elementary School teacher. So, patience and being a good listener are some traits I will bring to being your Cat Sitter. A couple years ago I inherited my sister's beautiful Maine Coon boys. I have had a passion ever since in everything Cat. It was a big learning curve in understanding everything about caring for them. In the process, I have learned so much and I feel qualified to share this with caring for other furr...

Cara's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Cara was wonderful with my kitties! Despite their shyness, she was able to make sure they were taken care of while I was away!!

As a new cat mom, I was so nervous to leave my kitty on her own for the holidays! Cara was beyond patient, communicative, and kind. Had fob issues in the beginning, and Cara was very patient with getting into the apt building. Her daily updates with plenty of pics and videos made my day! My Cher looked so content and like she was having the time of her life. Cher is very energetic, and Cara made sure to get in lots of play time! It was such a relief knowing that my kitty was in great hands while I was away - allowed me to enjoy the holidays that much more. Planning to book Cara to watch Cher for future vacations! 🤗

Cara was so helpful and flexible. My cats immediately warmed up to her and loved playing with her. Cara managed our cats differing diets well and maintained everything they needed. We had a few small issues with our automatic feeder while we were gone and Cara stepped in and helped us problem solve immediately. So thankful to have someone like Cara around to care for our kitties! We will definitely be using her again for our next trip!

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.
