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

Hello there! My name is TJ Rickette. I'm a 24 year old residing in Bushwick, Brooklyn and I've been working as a professional musician and producer here in the city for the past five years. Like many others, I unfortunately was laid off from my office day job and have been making an effort to work for myself since then. One of the things that I've picked up is catsitting!

I have my very own fur baby named Rocky here at home, who I've had for a couple of years now. Funny enough, she just randomly showed up to the front step of my apartment as a kitten. So I did the only thing that felt right by taking her in, and now she's my best friend! She's taught me a lot about the subtle ways that cats need to be taken care of and nurtured.

Besides prior experiences working shelters, I've actually been catsitting for the past couple of months now through finding my own clientele. It wasn't until recently that I discovered Meowtel and found that this could be a great way to expand my services!

I'm virtually free for any time of the day / day of the week to come take care of your cat. I'm also in the city during all major holidays. (Including Christmas + New Years)

I'm very flexible at working with my clients to make sure all specific needs are met for their cats. I have experience with all things feline related including hygienics, special diets including raw fed, medical emergencies, and giving medication. I make sure to give my clients daily updates on their cats as needed, as well as anything else that will reassert that their pet is getting the best possible care when they're away.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
