Our Cat Sitters Are Carefully Selected, Insured and Bonded

Katie’s Kitty is an exclusive boutique-style cat sitting company in New York City. We offer pet sitting in your home and cat boarding in our host-family homes. 

We carefully pre-screen every pet sitter before they are invited to join our network of cat sitters and pet boarders. And all of our sitters and boarders are insured and bonded.

The roster of persons who work for us is eclectic and includes professionals who do it as much for the love of animals as for any other reason. Among the ranks of our dedicated staff are nurses, journalists, teachers, social workers, stay-at-home moms and dads, veterinary technicians, administrative assistants, and graduate students.

We can provide experienced care for gerbils, hamsters, rabbits, lizards, and other small pets. Care can be provided in your home or in some cases, in your pet sitter’s home. We offer this service on a limited basis.

Our Mission

At Katie’s Kitty, our caregiving goes well beyond just the physical needs of your pet. We believe that, as with humans, there is a mind-body connection in animals. As such, the emotional state of your pet is just as important as his or her physical well-being. To that end, we take great pains to reduce occurrences of stress, frustration, loneliness – and yes, even boredom – in the life of your loved one.

We always take our cue from you. And so, if an exercise or play regimen is part of your daily routine, we will do our very best to recreate it. Through our keen awareness and attention to detail, the likelihood that your pet will feel safe and content in your absence is greatly enhanced.
