Meow! I am John, a cat sitter in New York, NY

Why me!

-I love cats! I am not afraid of cats!

- I have two cats of my own (Tuna and Sesame), so I understand deeply the nuances of cat care AND the nuances of why caring for *your* cat(s) in the specific ways *you* want is important. I would want no less for my babies.

- I have foster experience! Here in NYC I was a foster parent with Little Wanderers (a lovely organization). I fostered for about two years with them. Along the way, I fostered many cats of many ages with varying levels of socialization and behaviors. Some were totally feral, some had spent time with people and other felines. I was lucky to adopt my two babies through my experience fostering.

- I have professional experience! I used to work at PetSmart in the PetsHotel department. While my main duties were centered around the Doggy Daycare aspect of the PetsHotel, we had a thriving customer base of Cats who boarded with us who required my attention. I was responsible for the care of the cats and the cleanliness of their housing. This included feeding, play time, brushing (if the cat accepted it), litter scooping, blanket washing, and cage cleaning. In short, I worked with cats in a situation that involved paying customers and had to ensure they were satisfied with the care their cat received.

- I am very familiar with how cats communicate with people and with other cats. I know all the signs of when two cats might need to be separated or when to leave a cat alone. I know the patience that can be required with some cats and am happy to provide it.

- I am a trained helicopter pilot. This is relevant because of all the decision-making and crisis management training I have received. I process situations quickly and decide on a course of action quickly. For whatever reason should there be an emergency with your cat(s), I will keep a cool head and proceed with the speed and attention to detail of an aeronautical decision maker.

-I am an NYC based cat sitter. I am available for all Manhattan locations, my preferences being Upper West Side, Upper Manhattan, Harlem and Astoria.

- I am vaccinated for Covid 19 and have no problems wearing a mask if you would prefer that!

- I am most available Fri-Sun. Mon-Thu I am available for evening visits starting at 4:30pm
