Meow! I am Jacob, a cat sitter in Brooklyn, NY

I currently live with my two rescue cats, Lily & Silver. They’re a pair of sisters who were found in a junkyard here in Brooklyn. They were rescued by Brooklyn Animal Action and fostered by some friends of ours.

They’re still feisty and anxious sometimes, but they’ve come an incredibly long way. Silver, in particular, has come WAY out of her shell. She whines at us if we’re not constantly playing with her. And Lily's favorite activity is waking me up in the morning with loud purrs and what we call "ouchie biscuits." Lily even had a brief stint with TikTok fame a few months ago!

Having taken care of rescues for quite some time now, I’m confident in working with shy and nervous kitties, as well as big and brash personalities. I'll always come prepared with a bag of treats and a smile on my (masked) face! I am fully vaccinated against COVID-19, plus the booster, and will continue to go the extra mile to keep myself and those around me safe and healthy.

I live here in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and I’m happy to come to your home anywhere within a reasonable distance of New York City. Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and some of the Bronx are all on the table! If your location is within those boroughs but isn't covered on my Cat Sitter Service Area, please reach out anyways! If it's close enough to the subways I can probably still make it happen.

My medication experience includes applying tick & flea preventatives (Advantage Multi), mixing oral medications into food, using syringes to feed liquid medication orally, and using ear droppers.

Both my partner and I frequently work as cat sitters and dog sitters for our friends and family. We actually met while she was staying in the neighborhood to take care of kittens!

My primary job is as a video editor for casting companies. Some of your favorite future reality TV stars have probably come across my desk! Let’s talk television!
