Meow, I am Elaine!
Hello! My name is Elaine and I am a 32-year-old writer and bookseller. I love reading, watching movies and trying new foods. I have taken care of cats for over six years. I'm compassionate, responsible and dependable :)

I can't stress enough how much I love cats. I started cat sitting for my next door neighbor when I was in high school. Six years ago, my partner adopted an abandoned cat named Miyuki and I helped take care of her (Miyuki lives in France now). Five years ago, I adopted my own cat, Hamlet. My life has completely changed with Hamlet--I consider him a part of my family. He is a 7 year old neutered British Shorthair lilac tabby :)

I understand that clients might worry about boarding their cat at a home where there is already another cat. Hamlet used to live with two other cats, so he has always been surrounded by other furry friends. And he is a very particular cat, a true "gentle giant." He loves other cats and always wants to make new friends. He has never scratched, bitten or even hissed at humans or other cats. In fact, everyone who meets him describes him as a teddy bear. My friends love him so much that I made him his own Instagram account: @sirhamelot2012. I've been a Meowtel sitter for over a year now, and Hamlet has made many friends through Meowtel (please see pictures).

Through my experiences with cats, I have become an excellent cat sitter. I understand cats' temperaments and moods, when they want attention and when they would prefer to be left alone. I know how to brush cats, cuddle with them, play with them, and of course, perform all the basic necessities like feeding and cleaning litter boxes. Should you wish to board your cat at my 2 bedroom apartment (where I live alone with my partner; no children or roommates), I already have all the cat amenities to make your cat feel right at home, like a cat tree with scratching posts, a comfy cat bed, a cat tunnel and a box full of toys! I find that compared to drop-in catsitting, cats feel happier when they have constant companionship through hosting.

HOSTING: I provide complimentary dry food and litter, but if your cat eats wet food, please come with the amount required for their stay. I only host one client's cat at a time and I only host neutered/spayed cats.

DROP-IN: Right now, I am only doing drop-in catsitting to places that are within walking distance (I live near Grand Street station on the L train).

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!
