I'm Barbara | Cat Sitting in Arlington Heights, IL

Hi there everyone! My name is Barb and I have been a cat mamma for over 30 years! I love all cats and enjoy getting to know their personalities. My goal is to leave you with total peace of mind that your kitties are well taken care of. I have had cats all through my childhood. My dad was a veterinarian and we always had Siamese cats. One of our cats, Smokey, lived to be 18 years old and was a great comfort to me in my teenage years. When I married my husband we got a Siamese cat, Tasha. Fast forward 35 years and ...

Learn More About Barbara

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have been cat sitting for Meowtel for almost 3 years. I have had cats my whole life.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love when I have a client who says that they were able to enjoy their vacation because I quickly gave them confidence that their cat was in good hands. I also love to win over a shy cat.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

We have a 7-year old tabby named Louis. He loves to snuggle under blankets and head butt you for attention. Sadly our 16-year old cat Whiskers passed away a week before Christmas. We miss him dearly.

Barbara's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Barb is amazing! it's stressful leaving your fur babies. More so when one of them is sick and requires medicine. Barb provided the detailed information I requested, sent pictures and videos, and treated my 2 cats like they were her own. Barb took such great care of my cats, I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation. I can't recommend her enough, and would definitely use her again!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $32.00. Prices will also depend on how long your cat needs company for, whether that be a drop-in visit or overnight stay in your home. Meowtel sitters offer 20, 45, and 60-minute drop-in visits that allow for fully tailored care for your kitties. Your caregiver may also need to charge a little more if they have to travel far, so we'll match you with the best options which are close by.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel on eligible reservations via our Meowtel Promise. To ensure total peace of mind while you're away, every Meowtel reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you (and your kitties!) can have full confidence in your sitter before you leave.

Cats are territorial animals and don't do well in new environments. The presence of other cats, dogs, and even birds in kennels or animal hotels cause an immense amount of stress for your kitties. This is why Meowtel was created, so tailored in-home care is brought to you.

We recommend that you book daily visits with your sitter to keep your cats in their routine and to help minimize feline anxiety while you're away.

Each Meowtel cat sitting visit will include the whole 9 yards: feeding, refreshing the water bowls, litter box scooping, tidying up, medications, updates with photos, lots of playtime, as well as any special requests you may have. We know every kitty is different and that's why we offer tailored, in-home services since cats don't do well outside their own homes. Plus, every reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you can meet your sitter before you leave to ensure it will be a purrfect fit.
