I'm Sonia | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

I have been volunteering with animals for nine years and I spent three years working in a non-profit cat shelter. I am currently working as a vet technician and studying to become a credentialed vet technician. I was a behavior counseling lead at my previous job and possess a lot of cat behavior knowledge. I love all animals but cats hold a special place in my heart. I have a couple of regular clients that I cat sit for, too. I am able to comfortably medicate cats, if needed. I know how to perform SQ (subcutaneous) fluids, give subcu...

Sonia is amazing! She is super communicative and provides detailed updates with lots of pictures. She is so sweet and attentive with my cat Dolly, and I couldn’t ask for a better person to take care of her while I’m gone.

Sonia did so well with my kitties! I have a shy guy who seemed to take well to her while I was away. I was so happy to see that they were in great hands!

Sonia was terrific. My cat took to her immediately (and he doesn't usually like strangers). I'll definitely seek Sonia's help in the future.

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.
