I'm Alex | Cat Sitting in Ridgewood, NY

Hello there! Cats have always been a part of my life, having grown up with one at home, both my grandmothers owning multiple and having two of my own since then. My current baby is a very clingy snowshoe named Gizmo. I personally believe one’s pet is just as much family as anyone else and if someone is away they should know that their loved one is in good care. Why would you do anything less than provide the best you can for another living being? Let alone one that means so much to many. I keep in touch frequently with tons of pictures and videos, double check to make sure I’ve got everything on their care down and notify if I think something might be wrong. Making sure your precious kitty has the care and attention they need is what I do best! I've had experience in giving insulin injections to one of my cats, it was pretty easy with him. I gave him food and was able to inject between the shoulders by the scruff while he ate. Thankfully he went into remission shortly after. I'm also familiar with topical medication applied to the ear, and while i've also administered oral medica...

Learn More About Alex

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one cat named Gizmo, he’s a needy snowshoe baby that loves to talk and pester me as he pleases. Especially when i’m working on projects or trying to eat, laptime is a necessity whenever, wherever.

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

It’s always best to give a cat their space, do your own thing in the meantime and let them come to you. Forcing interaction with a cat will only make them more anxious and less likely to interact and tolerate your presence. Respect their space and be patient, maybe try some treat persuasion, then leave them be till they’re comfortable.

Excellent and consistent care for our cat while we traveled. Alex kept us well informed of her visits and we enjoyed great peace of mind as a result. Highly recommend!

This was our first time using a service like Meowtel, and Alex instantly put us at ease during the meet and greet. She's super detail-oriented, a great communicator and also just really nice. She made sure our little guy was doing great, and consistently went above and beyond to keep his daily schedule as normal as possible while we were away. We were able to fully enjoy our vacation without any worries - and the regular updates that Alex sent were a delight to receive. We will absolutely use Alex and Meowtel again for future trips, and can't recommend her enough :)

would and will book again in the future. I’ve always been able to get friends or family to watch my cat, so I was a little nervous. but Alex did a great job and sent tons of videos and updates.

Alex took great care of my kitties! They were very happy when I got home and they're usually stressed after I go 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.
