I'm Erica | Cat Sitting in Sunnyside, NY

Cat-mom of two goofy little boys, I treat all the little ones I meet as if they were my own. Mainly local to Eastern Queens - I'm available in LIC, Sunnyside, & Woodside, Astoria & Jackson Heights any time! (And if not, message me, I'm flexible!) My cats live the good life with plenty of play and toys. Always respecting boundaries and letting them come to me - or give them the extra socializing (or the space!) they might need. On alert to any discomfort and attentive to kitty body language - patience is important and respect is key. What's my pet history you might ask? I've raised anywhere from a newborn kitten to a 19 year old senior! I'm great with all ages and health situations. As a kid, my very first cat had a litter of kittens, 8 total! From that moment on they stole my heart. I've also had finches, adorable rats, a plethora of goldfish, and a Boston Terrier, huge animal lover here. Big plant-mom as well! H...

Erica's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Erica was awesome! She kept our extroverted kitty socialized and active while we were gone and gave excellent, pic-filled updates. Look forward to booking her again!

Erica was great! My cat has special needs and takes multiple meds on a daily basis and Erica was able to navigate that like a pro. I was worried that she would be put off by my cat’s frequent diarrhea (IBD) and the low possibility of her having a vomiting episode, but it wasn’t a problem at all. She sent me a lot of pictures every visit, played with my cat, did everything according to my instructions, and even cleaned the litter box before I got home. Will definitely be hiring her again the next time I go out of town.

My second booking with Erica and she was as fantastic as the last time! The girls really seemed to remember her and to respond to her even more quickly this time, and she could engage them in playtime and keep them busy for a while which they really needed while we were away! Her photos and updates were awesome as usual. She was also able to offer us an extra date we had wanted, that she had originally been unavailable for. It was so thoughtful of her to get in touch and let us know that we could book that date with her after all. She was very considerate and even offered to help out further if we had any problems or issues returning home on time. She picked up our packages and checked our mail too. It made a stressful weekend that much easier to know our girls were in the best hands. We will definitely be booking with her again!

We could not have been more confident and comfortable with Erica taking care of our two girls while we were away. She really took the time to get to know them and their very different personalities, and made the effort to give them each what they needed. She was very patient and adaptive with our more "difficult" cat personality, giving her space and time to adjust to a new person in the home, and she was attentive and affectionate with our more playful kitty who loves attention and pets. She was able to give oral meds as needed, and she went above and beyond in keeping our home tidy and clean, sending us pictures to show how she had left things. She asked questions and offered ideas and suggestions of her own when it came to the girls, and we couldn't be happier with all the photos and videos she sent daily. As much as we loved being on vacation, we were just as excited to get our daily report from Erica. It was hard being away from the girls, but we would absolutely book Erica again in a heartbeat because of how well she took care of them and how thoughtful, considerate, and compassionate she was. We recommend her with all our hearts!

Can I give Erica 6 out of 5 stars? She was terrific! First, she took the job on short notice when a neighbor’s plans changed. Then she took careful notes of everything she needed to know to take care of our cat. She asked about details that I hadn’t even thought of. She sent us great pictures and notes every day. She played with and brushed Gandalf. Everything was spotless when we returned. Erica even left us a lovely “welcome home” note. We were so lucky to find Erica and you will be too. 100% will ask for her again the next time we need a sitter.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $32.00.

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.
