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, Oscar & Burton, live the good life with plenty of snacks and toys. My big thing is respecting boundaries and letting kitties come to me. I like to 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 h...

Erica's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Erica is the best! I am also a Meowtel cat sitter and was impressed that she was as detailed as I am with the meet and greet. Her updates were so cute and fun and her pictures were great. She completely understood my cats personalities, I could tell they weren’t generic updates. She also took great pictures. She even managed to get my shy cat to say hi some. 10/10 would recommend highly.

Erica's amazing! First, she's so kind and clearly loves cats. And she's also so professional - she was meticulous at taking care of every aspect of feeding, grooming, playing and litter box care. She sent us detailed notes and pictures after each visit so we knew Gandalf was getting the best of care.

This is my 2nd time reserving Erica and have to say it’s such a relief knowing our kitties are in great hands! Usually I’m nervous leaving my kitties for long periods of time but Erica was fantastic with our cats and I felt so at ease. She was there for meal times, kept such a tidy apartment, and spent time playing with each of our kitties. I’m also sooo amazed at how she’s charmed our shy kitty, who always hides when we have someone new over. All of our kitties were so happy and comfortable while we were gone! Will definitely be booking her again. 😊

Erica cared for my two senior cats while I was away for a couple of days and she did a wonderful job! She was very attentive to their feeding/medication needs and sent lovely little updates with lots of photos after each visit. No complaints whatsoever and I will absolutely book her again for future trips!

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.

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.
