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

Hi! My name is Karina and I’m a cat sitter based in Woodside, Queens (New York City) servicing western Queens and north Brooklyn neighborhoods: Astoria, Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City, Greenpoint, Maspeth, Elmhurst, Jackson Heights (please contact me if your neighborhood is not listed). I have loved cats from a very early age and grew up with them. I have one fur baby now named Zelda who I rescued 6 years ago. As a cat lady I recognize that every cat is different with different needs, not unlike people—and I respect that. I like to build trust with cats by demonstrating a calm demeanor and friendly approach. I have applied topical ointments and flea preventives, de-flea'd and bathed (with waterless shampoo and with water),...

Karina to the rescue again! My two cats, with wildly opposing temperament, love her! Banana is usually very aggressive and territorial and Arbee is ultra shy, but Karina is able to bond with Banana and Arbee is less and less shy with her. I can now travel with a peace of mind. Karina goes above and beyond and making sure everything is spotless clean!

I'm so, so, so glad to have booked Karina! She's very clean, followed all instructions, and my cats LOVE her! I have two cats with completely different personalities and she's able to cater to both of their personalities and interacted with them both. Will book her again!

Karina is an amazing cat-sitter! She followed all our instructions perfectly and left everything sparkling clean too, even taking out the trash for us. I always get anxious leaving our two cats, but Karina sends tons of photos and videos and seeing how happy they were with her made me feel at ease. One of our cats is very skittish and nervous around strangers, but she always came out by the end of Karina's visits. She also brought in our mail for us which was much appreciated! I would definitely hire her again :)

Karina was an absolute gem! My two cats were take care of above and beyond. Karina provided routine updates, cleaned up accidents, found my 1 super shy cat and coaxed her out of her hideout and gave them both pets. She also brought in my package and mail. Im so happy they were in great hands.

Karina was very professional and showed lots of care with my cat. I wasn't worried at all and felt that my cat was in good hands with her. I would completely recommend Karina to anyone looking for a great cat sitter.

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.
