I'm Ruth Anne | Cat Sitting in Rego Park, NY

LOOK NO FURTHER FOR AN EXPERIENCED SITTER! Currently, I provide services across all 5 New York City boroughs based on availability and schedule constraints. Growing up in a pet-friendly family, I have long loved animals. I have a comprehensive background of training and caring for cats, dogs, horses, guinea pigs, chameleons, and many more pets. Currently, I am a proud mommy of three cats. With my work-from-home schedule, I spend a lot of time at home with my feline friends. Each one has a unique, purr-fect personality. I am dependable and responsible, taking care to pay attention to detail to ensure your feline friend(s) feels happy, comfortable, and loved. Having cats of my own, I understand the importance of routine and respect. I would love the opportunity to spend dedicated-time with your cat(s) (and best friend!). It is often expensive to ensure pets get the love and care they deserve, I am happy to...

Learn More About Ruth Anne

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I'm the proud mommy of 3 cats. Each one has a unique, purr-fect personality. My cats are all named after 80s musicians - Bowie, Prince, and Lennox (after Annie Lennox from the Eurythmics). I frequently work virtually from home which offers more quality time with my kittens. I understand how hard it is to be away from your kittens / cats.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

My philosophy is FIRST and FOREMOST to always respect the animal, each with its unique personality. I have worked with shy cats that need time before they come near me and I’ve also worked with cats that completely hide throughout the reservation. I find my approach varies based on the cats needs and what they are communicating. But I NEVER chase or intrude on a cat's private space. I often play the ‘Calm My Cat’ playlist to provide white noise for any loud / startling sounds (e.g., opening a can or moving litter around). I also happily sit and patiently wait, staying an extra few minutes if the cat approaches at the end of the visit. Another thing that works is making soft eye contact and blinking at the cat, I read that’s how cats smile when they’re comfortable.

I had Ruth Anne check on my two cats (one of which is a kidney cat) over the weekend. Ruth Anne was great with updates, and even better with my kitties. She was very patient with my shy kitty and my kidney kitty. She followed all my instructions amazingly and administered fluids and medication like a pro. My cat also struggles to eat and she made sure he ate enough on each visit. I felt very relaxed having Ruth Anne watch my cats - you should definitely book her!

Ruth Anne was the biggest blessing my cat and I could have ever received! I was extremely nervous leaving her alone with someone to do her inhaler for the first time but not only did Ruth Anne administer the medication flawlessly, my cat LOVED her! I got such detailed and incredible updates, along with so many photos and videos of her playing that I felt completely at peace with her caring for my babe! I am already planning to rebook Ruth Anne in the coming months and can’t recommend her more! Thank you so much for loving my baby so well while I was gone. You’re so appreciated!

Our cat doesn’t always warm up to new people right away but she was best buds with Ruth Anne right away. I looked forward to all the daily photos of their playtime shenanigans. So nice to know she had a good time while we were away for a week.

Ruth Anne is a detailed caretaker, and I genuinely felt like she cared about my girls and that she was excited to visit with them. She updated me when she was on the way to our home and sent great photos and videos of my darlings!

The Meowtel Promise & Satisfaction Guarantee

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $34.00. 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.
