What makes Katie the Cat Lady the best choice for your
Westchester & Putnam Pet Sitting needs?
I take my business very seriously - this is my full time career as opposed to a neighbor looking to make a few extra bucks. My company is an incorporated, bonded, and insured professional pet sitting service. Should an accident or medical emergency ever arise, you'll be glad you hired an experienced professional.
I follow strict safety guidelines regarding both pet's care and home security.
Offering pet sitting in the most comfortable, anxiety-free environment possible; home. Eliminate the illness, injury risk, and fear of a pet hotel or kennel.
Reliability. Trust. Consistency. Simplicity.
Providing frequent detailed photo updates via your Paw Portal account. All visits to your home are GPS tracked with a check-in/check-out time stamp for your peace of mind that I stopped by and stayed for the allotted time. You can even view the route walked with your dog! (download our app for real time updates during each visit).
Most companies switch sitters around on a consistent basis. I previously owned a large pet care company with 12 sitters, so I know first-hand how much this frustrated clients and disrupted pets' schedules. I understand animals thrive on consistency and familiarity and the importance of your pet forming a trusting bond with one sitter, as well as for one sitter to become familiar with your pet's routine and tendencies to prevent any accidents from occurring. By choosing my business, you're getting me and only me. Indefinitely.
Offering an easy to use interface for updating pet information, scheduling services, communicating and more, all in one place using our app.
Hiring a sitter for check-in visits not only keeps pets in their comfortable environment following their familiar routine, but is significantly more affordable than paying a sitter to sleep in your home, board, or kennel your pet(s).
I do not charge for additional pets in your home. The price is the same whether you have one cat or 10. I charge by time only.
I do not charge for additional requests such as cleaning litter boxes, administering medications, picking up mail, etc. I understand this is all part of the gig, and should be all inclusive.
Convenient secure billing by credit card

"I have had to travel a lot unexpectedly this summer and feel so fortunate to have discovered Katie. She is unfailingly reliable and communicative, sending pictures of my cats that make my day while I am away. I am amazed at how much even my most standoffish cat has warmed to her. In addition to having their basic needs taken care of while I am away, I feel so much better knowing that my cats are also getting warmth and affection from Katie. Communicating via the portal she sets up for clients is also easy and efficient."

Thank you, Katie for being such a trust-worthy bunny sitter for Bella and Eggy.
I recently relocated to the area with my two bunnies, Eggy and Bella, and was so happy to find Katie. So far I've used her services twice and will continue to do so.
When I first contacted Katie, she offered to come over a few days prior to the actual date that i needed her help, to get to know me and the bunnies. I thought it was very nice of her and also it gave me peace of mind to leave them with her. The second time I took a 5 day vacation out of the country and had no trouble trusting Katie that she would take good care of the pets. When I came back, Eggy and Bella were clean and very happy. She even cleaned my place for me a little bit! :) Katie also leaves a journal for you to know when she stops by and leaves and how your pet(s) does. Not only she's good with puppies, kitties, but also bunnies! Katie is great! I'd highly recommend her.

Katie has been watching my two cats Cedar & Holly for just over two years now. My cats hate EVERYONE who come over and will hide under the beds indefinitely but Katie miraculously had my cats interacting in just her first visit with them and I couldn't believe my eyes. Not only that, but she quickly proved to have no trouble giving my diabetic boy his injections.
Its visible when you first see Katie interact with your pets how much she just adores all types of animals and really has a way of making not only the animals trust her quickly, but also in making the owner feel comfortable and confiding in her upon first meeting.
She's been the most wonderful, steady, and reliable caretaker we could ever have asked for for our babies and I have not a worry in the world when I travel because of her.

"Katie is phenomenal. She carries herself in a professional manner and came into our consultation prepared with several questions to get our cats' routines understood and clearly explained how the process with her works. She left our meeting giving me complete confidence that she really knows what she's doing and takes her work seriously. The portal account we're given access to is easy to use and makes receiving updates from her a breeze while we're away. I love that she submits a checklist during every visit of each task she did while at our home and always includes the cutest photos and notes of how our cats are doing. We always come home to find our house cleaner than we left it. She is reliable, trustworthy, evidently experienced with felines, and has overall made our travel experiences worry-free and we recommend her to friends & neighbors frequently. "
