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

Hi I'm Elaine, a life long cat lover available for jobs in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

For the last 15 years I've been the primary caregiver to my adorable rescues, Toetoe and Meeker. Toetoe is a confident, adventurous boy with a bit of a bullying streak, while Meeker is a shy girl who takes her timing warming up to people. They've taught me that no two cats are alike and how to figure out each one's needs. There's nothing more beautiful and satisfying to me than figuring out how to befriend a new feline. I once spent two and a half years patiently wooing a friend's cat until I was their best friend. I have an endless supply of love for the cats of the world and look forward to sharing it with my clients.

As the parent to two elderly cats I have experience managing all sorts of behavioral and medical issues. This includes an extensive experience with a variety of medication methods such as oral pills (both hidden in food and given directly), oral liquids, eye/ear drops and topical skin creams. I'm also experienced at managing cones and other neck collars. My kitties mean the world to me and I've seen first hand how much of a difference a quality pet sitter can make. I'm committed to giving the same amount of love and attention to all my new feline friends.

I work a 9-5 job doing administrative work for a law firm in Midtown. I'm generally available after 5 on Wednesday through Friday and anytime on the weekends. For afternoon visits during the week it will depend on location, time and my work schedule so please feel free to reach out. I'm happy to do overnight visits, but please be aware that I will most likely be out during the day.

I am very cautious about COVID. I have been fully vaccinated including two boosters, wear masks whenever in common spaces / indoors, and get tested regularly. I am happy to adhere to any needs or specifics clients may have regarding COVID safety and am happy to do either distanced or virtual meet and greets if that’s preferable.

Visits Include:
-- Feeding, watering and medication
-- Litter box and other cleanliness maintenance
-- Social time including play time, cuddling or whatever else your cat is into (I appreciate any and all info on favorite toys, hang out spots, etc.)
-- Pictures and updates at the end of every visit. Let me know if there's anything you're particularly worried or curious about so I can do my best to keep you well informed.
