I'm Tara | Cat Sitting in Champaign, IL

I love cats! They are intelligent, beautiful, loving animals. I own 4 cats and care for each of them as my family. I have previously worked at a Veterinary Clinic for 8 years as a Kennel Aid. As a kennel aid I had a vast array of responsibilities including caring for multiple animals at one time. I have a keen attention to detail and a great memory. I enjoyed finding creative ways to help the dogs and cats I cared for feel safe and happy during their stay. I am able to follow directions exactly and will ask questions as needed. I have a vast array of experience with all different types of cats. My p...

Tara did a fantastic job caring for our beloved Sage and keeping our home tidy while we were away. She is a cat parent herself and understands not only how to care for cats, but is also very communicative, responsible, and willing to go the extra mile for the client. I very highly recommend Tara to anyone needing a friendly, experienced, and trustworthy sitter for their cat(s). I will definitely be a repeat customer. A+

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $27.00.

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.
