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

I have been a lifelong pet owner and animal lover, having raised both cats and dogs since my early childhood. I am, by profession, an IT Specialist, but began, over the past few years, scaling back and working from home, which afforded me
the opportunity to make cat-sitting a major focus.

If asked about my general philosophy, I would say that because many people view cats as being such self-sufficient creatures, it’s easy for them to take for granted the notion that they are just fine when left alone. Being so familiar with them, and having spent as much time as I have taking care of other people's cats over the years, I realize how untrue this is. It is important for the cats, as well as their humans to have someone there--not just to feed them & clean their litter boxes, but to provide a consistent level of companionship and stress-relieving stimulation, if even only for a brief amount of time every day. This is something that I feel is essential for a pet owner, and it is work that brings me great joy.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn where I was surrounded by my family’s cats and dogs until I went away to Stony Brook University for my undergraduate education. It was then that I experienced the sorrow of losing a pet for the first time when my American Wirehair mix, Cookie passed away while I was away at school. I credit this experience, in part, with helping to shape the empathy with which I approach the care of another person’s cat(s)--particularly those
with health concerns or of advanced age. Treating your cat(s) with the care and affection that I would my own beloved pet is my guiding principle and reflects the baseline standard of care that I provide.

I am fully vaccinated/boosted against COVID-19, and wear a mask at all times during visits. I am available in the following New York City areas: Bed-Stuy / Bedford-Stuyvesant, Fort Greene, Clinton Hills, Park Slope, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Kensington and Long Island City (L.IC).
