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

From a young age, I've always loved animals. I actually used to be a dog person, if you can forgive me, but I've switched sides! When I first introduced my two cats, it was a struggle. I felt like my world was turned upside down. So I did what any dedicated cat dad would do. I binged My Cat from Hell, and when that didn't work, I met with a renowned cat behaviorist in the tristate area. I learned a lot of useful techniques for managing two cats that aren't getting along. After I graduated from the My Cat from Hell behaviorist crash course and I started implementing the strategies I learned from the locally famous cat bevaiorist, things actually started turning around. And now my two kitties even sleep with each other! Personal anecdotes aside, I work with feral and stray cats in various non profits and independently. I have lots of experience creating different...

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

I've been cat sitting since I can remember! (No but seriously, since I was like 14?) I used to cat sit for a neighbor with 9 cats and even a teacup maltise! Can you believe it? Since then, I've even worked for multiple cat rescue organizations!

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Well, getting to hang out with all different types of cats, of course!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two beautiful rescued street cats of my own. Someone once described them as "the big one" and the "small climber" and I've never gotten over it. Martin, the big one, is a beautiful tabby with an orange belly and a clipped ear. Juni, the small climber, is a goofy little black cat that's always blep-ing

Sean was everything we were looking for in a cat-sitter for our 2 cats - on time, took lots of pictures, and followed our instructions to the letter. Sean took time to really play with our cats and make sure they each got attention. We'd be so happy to have Sean cat sit again and I'm sure our kittens would love it too!

Sean was great! Very responsive and punctual, followed every instruction given, and got along extremely well with our cat. I will be hiring Sean again in the near future and would highly recommend them to anyone else who needs a sitter.

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.

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.
