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

My mom gave me my first cat, Tabby, for my 11th birthday, and I’ve lived with cats ever since. Over the course of 25 years, I adopted Binx, Trix, Theory, and now I have my 12-year-old cat Kix. All of my cats lived long, pampered lives with amazing veterinary care. I have experience with older cat care, administering a variety of medications and subcutaneous fluids. Kix is a senior cat with special dietary needs, so I understand the importance of strict feeding guidelines.

In my 9-5, I work as a designer and researcher, specializing in work with Latinx and LGBTQ+ communities. I also do work adjacent to Disability Justice and feel comfortable discussing client (and pet!) access needs. I love to share what I know and learn what I don’t.

I am *officially* picking up cat sitting because I’ve done it so often for friends. I also work from home, and hanging out with cats is great motivation to get up and out of my apartment—especially in the winter.

Anywhere near an L train stop works for me (Manhattan or Brooklyn). Typically, evenings after 6pm and weekends work best, but sometimes I have morning flexibility before 10am as long as I can plan ahead. Since I’m a full-time cat dad, I can’t do overnight stays (Kix would be too jealous!)

Public health is extremely important to me. I experienced tremendous loss throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, so I take community care very seriously and personally. I mask with a KN94 or N95 indoors and test regularly. I am also up-to-date on all vaccines and boosters.

I cat sit the way I want my cat-sitting experience to be. I love getting thorough updates and pictures. I value trust and transparency. I don’t want to worry about if my cat is in good hands or if my home is how I left it. I love receiving clarifying questions—I believe that over-communicating is better than uncertainty and that asking questions is a strength, not a weakness.
