I'm Grace | Cat Sitting in Woodside, NY

Hi there! I'm a huge cat lover and I offer in-house cat sitting all over NYC on weekdays, weekends, and holidays! Given my remote day job as an analyst for a non-profit, I have a pretty flexible schedule and can easily commute to you. I have volunteered with the ASPCA as a Cat Volunteer for over eight years. I have taken care of many cats and kittens, from as young as a few days old to as old as over twenty years old. I've also worked with shy and fearful cats who require additional patience to get acclimated to new people and environments. I am well-attuned to cat behavior and will make sure that your cat stays as happy as possible while they are in my care. When working with any cat, I always let them take their time to approach me so that they feel as safe and comfortable as possible. With shy cats specifically, giving them space and being attentive to their body language is key. I also try to see if a cat is more food motivat...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have been cat sitting for over 8 years, starting as a cat volunteer at the ASPCA. I've since worked as a freelance cat sitter for various clients with cats of all ages, sizes, and needs. I truly enjoy working with cats and I'm committed to providing them with the best care possible. I make sure to provide them with lots of play and mental stimulation to help keep them engaged through the day.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

While it's hard to pick a favorite, I have to say I particularly enjoyed cat sitting an orange and white kitty named Harry and his black and white sister Natasha. They were both really sweet and one of them had extra thumbs which was too cute! While Natasha was on the shyer side, she quickly learned that I was a safe person and really came out of her shell. I've since taken care of them multiple times - each time is a new adventure!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

As a previous cat owner, I would suggest looking for three main things. First, make sure your sitter is committed to providing high quality care. Second, your sitter should be a great communicator and continue to provide photo and text updates to help you keep your peace of mind. Lastly, your sitter should understand how to read cat body language and know when a cat is overstimulated so they can avoid overpetting and things like that.

Grace took amazing care of our kitty while we were away! She's an awesome cat photographer, and was very communicative and responsive. We really appreciated the time she took to play with our energetic furball!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $31.00. 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.
