    Hello! I'm Amy - Owner & Operator of NYCity Kitty.

    I've been a pet parent for more than 25 years and a professional pet sitter since 2012. It's no secret that I love and adore cats. It makes me happy to be around and care for them. (That's me and my Loki you see pictured.)


    When I first started sitting, within 17 months, I had a loyal and reoccurring client base of approximately 40 households on the Upper West Side. My clients really appreciated how I cared for their cats - and their homes.


    Getting two thumbs (and paws) up felt amazing and fueled me to build my client base. But, alas, I am only one!


    Then I had an idea. Since my main job for nearly two decades was teaching and training others about customer service and client relations, why not translate that into the pet-sitting industry?


    And with that, I decided to build a team of like-minded caretakers - the NYCity Kitty Cat Crew - who serve our fellow cat parents responsibly, compassionately and enjoyably.


    It's fulfilling to be of service to our local cat communities. We hope to one day have the pleasure of meeting you and your cat(s) and caring for them like they're our own.


    The peace of mind that comes from having a professional

    care for your furry family member is priceless.

    Daily In-Home Visits

    Whether it's a vacation, business trip, or weekend jaunt, you can be sure that your cat will receive lots of love, attention and care while you're away.


    We'll feed, scoop, pet, play and treat your kitty like our own. We'll administer meds (if they're called for), get mail, water plants and take plenty of pictures to send with your email or text updates.


    You can also be sure that we'll keep your home tidy by cleaning up anything from crumbs and hairballs to tumbleweeds of fur and the ever-annoying scattered litter!


    One visit (a minimum of) 30 minutes: $35.

    Two visits a day (morning/evening): $70.


    *It's our policy to do daily visits and not to share visits with others. These rules are in place for the safety and benefit of our cats, client and caretakers.

    Overnight Visits

    A sleep-over for your cat. We'll do the same duties we do during a daily visit, but this time we're staying over, so there's much more play, attention and affection.


    This is ideal for kitties who have a bit more anxiety when they're left alone and need the presence of a warm, caring lap/human.


    It's also a good option should you be going away for a longer period of time and are hesitant to board you cat. It might be nice to keep everything as is and not be inconvenienced or stressed uprooting all of your cat's stuff (food, litter, bowls, toys, grooming tools and other creature comforts from home) in order to board.


    One overnight (up to 24 hours): $75.


    We're so grateful for the kind words we get after just about every update we send.
