About Katie’s Kitty
My name is Peter Lindenbaum and I am the owner and founder of Katie’s Kitty. Thanks for stopping by our website. I started Katie’s Kitty in 1997 as a result of a conversation with my then precociously perceptive 8-year-old daughter, Katie. Having noticed that I was unhappy with the work I was doing, she said, “Daddy, why can’t you do something that you love instead?” And so, our roots are very humble (e.g., neighborhood dog walking, cat sitting and pet boarding from our apartment on the upper east side of Manhattan). It wasn’t long, however, before things started to change. Word-of-mouth began to spread. As the business grew and I could no longer tend to each customer personally, I realized that quality home care for animals in Manhattan was sorely lacking at that time.
Since then we have grown tremendously, but certain things remain unchanged. Your cherished companion will always be treated with the same degree of personalized care and attention that I would give my own. Any sitter who works for Katie’s Kitty must have animal welfare as their number one priority (there are plenty of businesses in which the bottom line can be the bottom line – this is not one of them). As a result, I have been blessed with a roster of dedicated sitters who have been with me for many years and who, in turn, pass that degree of loyalty on to their respective clients (making themselves available on relatively short notice for their regular customers). If you would like to talk with me personally, or if you would like to make arrangements to meet with a qualified sitter that lives in or near your neighborhood, please contact us at 212-288-5712.
