I'm Stacy | Cat Sitting in Aurora, IL

I am a long-time resident of Aurora, living on the north side with my husband, son and two wonderful cats that we adopted as kittens. I've been taking care of and loving cats for as long as I can remember. My first kitty companion was a frisky orange guy I named Nosey, because I was 11 and he was curious. Our current fur babies, Natasha and Barton, though not from the same litter, were adopted together and have grown to love each other just like siblings. They often nap together, groom each other and play with our family and their many, many toys. I love watching cats at play and exploring their surroundings. I enjoy the bonds that can form between a human and a cat, after love and at...

Learn More About Stacy

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to see all the different personalities of cats that are out there. They are each so unique and it's great to see their traits emerge as I spend time with them.

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have two adorable 5-year old cats, who are not from the same litter but were adopted together. Our little girl, who was barely 2 pounds when we brought her home, is Natasha. Her brother-from-another-mother is our big boy, Barton. They are named after Marvel characters Black Widow and Hawkeye, respectively.

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I definitely approach timid cats slowly. I extend my hand for acknowledgment and identification but will never try to touch or grab a cat. I will often sit or stand quietly for a few minutes if I see they are interested, but I always let them come to me. I will seek them out for verification that they are present and healthy and otherwise will leave them in peace.

This was my first time having a stranger look after my boys so I was a bit nervous. But Stacy was great and sent texts and emails every day. I came home to happy and well cared for kitties. Thank you Stacy!

The Meowtel Promise & Satisfaction Guarantee

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations. For reservations where each visit is at or above $20 and paid for through Meowtel, your cat(s) will automatically be covered under our insurance policy in the event that things don't go as planned.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
