Meow! I'm Kaitlyn, a Cat Sitter in , NY

Hi friends! I'm Kaitlyn (she/they), a musical theatre performer, coffee lover, and neonatal kitten rescuer living on the Upper West Side. I have owned cats my entire life (up to 5 at a time in my family home) but currently own none because I have dedicated my time and space to rescue and foster efforts. I specialize in neonatal kitten care and bottle-feeding, but I have also taken in pregnant street cats and assisted in live births, including the resuscitation of two kittens that were not breathing upon arrival. I have assisted vets with vaccinations and blood draws and am trained in giving oral, aural, and optical medication, so if your furry friend has meds or health issues, I'm your gal!

I was so worried about leaving my 15yo kitty for two weeks. All her life my business partner has looked after her in my absence, but he was traveling at the same time I was! Kaitlyn was/is/will always be a complete gem. She connected so well to Jasmine that this normally very shy kitty who doesn't come out for anyone she doesn't know well was out and about from day 1, playing with Kaitlyn and her fishy. If I hadn't seen the video, I wouldn't have believed it! Kaitlyn was so reliable and responsive--I will be using her again and again.

Kaitlyn is amazing. I think my cat loves her more than he loves me.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $31.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
