Both Andy and I grew up surrounded by cats. Andy (from Philadelphia) is the youngest of 4 siblings and has lived with cats since he was a baby. I grew up with 3 sisters in Norway and had up to 5 cats at a time. We helped care for and clean up after our cats and have fond memories of all of the cats in our lives. Our earlier apartments haven’t been suitable for pets, but one year my roommate had two, and I realized how nice this city can be when you have cats to come home to. After getting married last May we purchased a beautiful pre-war condo apartment in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The apartment is clean, spacious, and minimal making it a perfect host apartment for kitties. We always spoke about bringing cats into our lives when we get settled. We might get cats of our own down the road, but right now helping out with temporary stays is perfect for us!
I’ve been working freelance as a makeup artist for 11 years and moved to NY in 2012. I met Andy at work where he does production and photo. In our free time we enjoy watching a play or a movie, biking around the city, yoga, and have friends over for dinner.
We are excited to get to know the cat owners in our new community :)

Miriam & Andy were very welcoming our cat Juno and sent photos and kept us up to speed almost daily. Thats' a great comfort when you leave your cat for 2 weeks and are far away.
It was clear that Juno was in good hands and she was very relaxed and felt comfortable with them.

Miriam and Andrew were attentive to our cat's needs throughout his weekend stay. They emailed us twice with very well written descriptions of the cat's daily activities, as well as a video and photos of our cat to show that he had adjusted well to their place.
As to communications regarding drop off and pick up, Miriam and Andrew readily available via email to ensure seamless coordination. They provided an accurate and ample window of time for which they would be present, thereby relieving us of any undue stress in the event of city traffic.
Finally, our cat was content upon his arrival back home, and slept peacefully throughout the evening. Based on this and the above, we recommend Miriam and Andrew for future caregiving services.
