Hi there! I’m Andrea, and I am delighted to be a pet sitter with Katie’s Kitty in Astoria, NY! I have experience pet sitting for a variety of animals; dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles too! I am also accustomed to administering medications to pets who have special health issues. I currently have one fluffy orange and white cat named Walter. He is a medium haired Turkish Van mix, rescued from the streets of Brooklyn. Walter is now a true gentleman, and is even toilet trained! He can also give a great high five. I’m crazy about him.
Manhattan Cat Sitter
Hi! My name is Julie, and I’ve been working with Katie’s Kitty since 2007, and available for cat visits in the Midtown Area (East 40-50-60’s plus). ). I’ve met so many incredible cats and owner during that time! Some of them have become like family since I’ve visited their cats off & on for seven years! I’d be happy to meet with you for free whenever you are looking for a caring, reliable cat sitter to visit your very special furry companion. Although visits are scheduled for 1/2 hour, I never look at my watch. I stay until I feel the cat has gotten what it needs to feel safe and secure while its owner is away.

My name is Erin and I live and work on the Upper West Side. I’m a bartender at a cute little dive bar, but I also love to make new feline friends through Katie’s Kitty! My partner Chris and I both fostered and volunteered for a humane society in our hometown of San Diego, so we have experience with different ages, quirks, levels of socialization, and administering medications. We have a very spoiled, very vocal, very cuddly 13-years-old bonded pair of Maine Coon/Tabbies, Marlowe and Laurel. We adopted them when they were just nine weeks old and they have made every day absolutely amazing.

I’m very positive, affectionate, flexible and I love to spoil them! I understand how important it is to know your pet is comfortable, happy and cared for while you are away. I will give your pet the love and attention while making sure to tailor each visit to your pet’s needs so that they are as happy as can be in your absence.

As a cat owner and animal lover, I know how important it is for cat owners to ensure that their pets are in good hands while they are away. I am so grateful for the opportunity to provide that comfort to you.
Upper West Side Cat Sitter
In October of 2016, after having used the services of Katie’s Kitty a few times, I decided that cat sitting would be the perfect addition to my life.
One of my favorite aspects of being a cat sitter is that I get to meet many different cats. It never ceases to amaze me how every cat has a unique personality. It’s so much fun to start from scratch and learn what each cat likes―their favorite toy, their favorite treat, that one spot on their back that they love to be scratched. These are the wonderful little discoveries I get to make with each cat that I care for.
Bedford-Stuyvesant Cat Sitter
My name is Allie and I cover Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick in Brooklyn. I have five cats—Willa, Waffles, Barry Manilow, Gumball, and Feline Dion (rhymes with Celine Dion). I also volunteer as a cat rescuer and do TNR (trap-neuter-return) in my neighborhood.
Bensonhurst Cat Sitter
I am an animal lover and have been working with them since 2011 when I became a veterinary assistant. I have volunteered in the animal husbandry department at the New York Aquarium as well.

During the day, I’m an editorial assistant for an academic publisher, working mostly on books about politics and forensic science. I moved to Brooklyn over a year ago, but I’m originally a Vermont native by way of North Carolina. I grew up with cats―Mac and Sandy, short for MacTavish and Sandra Dee.
Bay Ridge Cat Sitter
Hi! My name is Marinda. I’m a children’s book publishing professional living in Bay Ridge, where I’ve resided for the past three years.

Park Slope Cat Sitter
Hi, I’m Sheila and I first started working as a professional pet sitter with Katie’s Kitty soon after my little dog of 17 years, Louise, passed away. At the time, I was also teaching pre-K and I found that taking care of cats and dogs (and sometimes chinchillas and other surprising pets) was a healing way to work through this event in my life.
Park Slope Cat Sitter
Hi! My name is Ellie, and I am proud to work for Katie’s Kitty taking care of pets in Park Slope and the surrounding neighborhoods (South Slope, Greenwood, Gowanus, Ditmas Park and Red Hook). I was born and raised in the English countryside in a family of animal lovers, taking home my very first pet from a litter of kittens on the local farm at age five. Since then, I have always had cats in my life and would not have it any other way.
Harlem and Bronx Cat Sitter
My name is Amy, and I joined the Katie’s Kitty team in early 2017. I was―and still am―a Katie’s Kitty client turned cat sitter! Since I had the best experience with Katie’s Kitty while I was away last summer, I decided to become a part of the team and provide the same services.
I’m experienced with feeding, cleanup, brushing, litter scooping, and―most importantly―playtime! I’ve had my rescues for nine years now and can meet whatever your need may be. I will always make sure your pet is happy and well cared for, whether you’re away for one evening or 10 days.
Astoria Cat Sitter
Hi! My name is Melissa and I’ve been cat sitting with Katie’s Kitty since Fall 2013. Before that I would often cat sit for several of my friends around the city. Being from NC & KY I grew up having both cats and dogs as part of the family. As a teenager I had a special relationship with a very vocal and opinionated Siamese Cat named Pavlova. We also had a giant rabbit named Wascal and I once had African tree frogs! During college, I also had 2 beta fish that lived well beyond their years! My dad now has a farm in KY where he raises feinting goats! I guess you could say I have been around animals my whole life! I currently live in LIC/Sunnyside in a small studio with my calico cat, Cleo. I am also an actress who waits tables.
UES Manhattan Cat Sitter
I began my work with Katie’s kitty after the most amazing experience with one of our own fellow sitters, and fell in love with the idea of taking care of cats alongside my job as a kindergarten teacher here in New York ( considering I love cats!). I have been teaching for three years, and before that spent a couple of years working in public relations. I have a beautiful young cat, Esmerelda, with my husband, but am really wishing for another soon! Before getting Esmerelda, I have had cats at home with my family my whole life. My mother has fostered cats since I was very little and has greatly influenced me in my love not just for cats, but for all animals!

I grew up taking care of cats my entire life, whether they were my own or if they belonged to friends and family members, and nothing warms my heart more than spending time with a precious furry friend.

I grew up in a family of animal lovers who gave our four-legged friends the love and respect one would any other family member (if not better!). Cats were always a big part of my life.

Bronx Cat Sitter
My name is Andrea, and I joined the Katie’s Kitty team in 2014. I used a sitter from Katie’s Kitty when I first moved to New York and needed a sitter for my own cat, and they did such a great job taking care of my girl that I asked to join them!
Taking care of animals is just one of my passions. I work as a classical singer, and recently I’ve also been taking classes in preparation to apply to medical school.

We spent close to two decades together.
As a matter of fact, I successfully managed his kidney disease for 5 years. My family and I have cared for cats with various illnesses such pancreatitis, cardiomyopathy, and seizures. I’ve become quite adept at giving oral medications via syringe or pill, and I can also do subcutaneous fluids. Seniors with special needs hold a special place in my heart.
Astoria Pet Sitter
Hello! I’m Cristina and I adore cats. There has been a cat in my life since the day I was born— really! I have a picture of my first day home from the hospital in which our cat is sitting on my mom’s lap with one paw draped over me. In that moment, our cat labeled me “Friend of Cats” forever. So what better way is there to share my passion for cats than to help take care of someone else’s feline friends?
In the spring of 2014 I was working for a bank in Maryland when I decided that it was high time to pursue my career in voice over acting. I left the bank, packed up the house, the husband, and the cats and we all moved to New York. Since I have my own home studio, I was looking to find something to occupy my time in between auditions and I was incredibly pleased to find and be hired by Katie’s Kitty.

Manhattan and Upper East Side Pet Sitter
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jane and I am the purrfect person to care for your pet, be it a cat or dog.
Love of animals, especially dogs and cats led me to Katie’s Kitty/Peter’s Pets where I have been a member of their petsitting family since 2009.
I grew up with two wonderful Cocker Spaniels who lived well into their teens.
I am a former pet owner of cats and dogs, having been a proud parent to a Golden Retriever, Brandy, for twelve years and a Rottweiler, Kaya, for eight years after that, all while living in Westport, CT.
Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Cat Boarding
My name is Beth, and I’m a cat boarder with Katie’s Kitty. I do this work because I love cats, and I enjoy “hosting” them in my apartment. I think I have a special ability to sense the amount of attention each cat wants and needs (they all have different personalities!), and I find ways to maximize their comfort and happiness, knowing it’s tough for them to be away from home! (My profile picture shows me with Koshka, one of the cats I boarded recently.)
My love of cats started many years ago, when I got my beloved pet cat Esme, a beautiful tortoiseshell who lived with me for 14 years until she died earlier this year. She had kidney disease and cancer, and for two years, I hydrated her daily with fluids to manage her kidney disease. During all those years, I also cared for and visited cats belonging to friends and neighbors.
West Side Cat Sitter
My name is Jenny Deady and I have been a pet sitter with Katie’s Kitty since 2011. During my time as a Katie’s Kitty pet sitter, I have garnered extensive experience taking care of many cats with a variety of unique needs.
I love cats! Our first family pets growing up in Ireland were cats and, in fact, I do not recall a time when we did not have a cat. All our pets have been cats with two exceptions; some fish and a little bush-baby (a small African lemur). My family lived in Tanzania, East Africa in the 80’s where we rescued the little bush-baby (small African lemur) that was being sold at a market. We planned to let it go back to the wild but it decided to adopt us for a while. He was called “Mad Morris” and liked to swing out of our mosquito nets.
Queens Cat Sitter
Hi there fellow feline lovers! My name is Alexis and I’m one of the newest sitters with Katie’s Kitty here in Queens.
My love for cats started with trying to share cookies with strays on the street when I was a kid in San Francisco, and followed me into adulthood when my brothers and I adopted a small group of sibling cats, along with their unexpected kittens. I currently look after my roommate’s rescue cat Madame, and I’ve also gladly been a designated cat sitter for friends in the last couple of years, especially during holidays. I will never stop loving cats anytime soon, and love cat sitting for all that the experience gives in playfulness, fickleness, and shedded fur.
Harlem Cat Sitter
Hi! My name is Rita. I’m a 25 years old and have been a cat sitter with Katie’s Kitty since 2015. Prior to that, I was an independent cat sitter for about 3 years, ever since moving to Manhattan from Connecticut. I grew up in Paris and Connecticut and then moved to Manhattan to start attending school part time at Hunter College.
I initially started taking care of my brother’s cat when he and his wife would go away, They started recommending me to other people and that’s how I got involved in cat sitting, which has been an extremely rewarding experience for me.
