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.

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.

Client Testimonials

Sally did a wonderful job taking care of our two Siberian cats for 10 consecutive visits! This was the first time we left our cats alone for that long without family and not only did Sally ensure that we had detailed updates with photos and videos but we also returned to two very calm, happy, and content cats! We are happy and thankful to have found Sally through Katie’s kitty!

We were so lucky to have Stephanie cat sit for our girls. She did such a great job, I swear our girls were disappointed that we came home because we didn’t give them the play attention they got from Stephanie.

She gave us daily updates accompanied with pictures/movie and was super communicative. Will def continue using their services for sure !

I can’t recommend Katie’s Kitty enough! Their service is second to none, and it’s evident that they genuinely care about the well-being and happiness of the cats they look after. If you’re in need of cat-sitting services, Katie’s Kitty is the cat’s meow!

I know we’ll be using them again for all our future trips!
