I'm Ariel | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Please note: limited time (after 4 pm) and distance! Anyway, I have had many beloved cats throughout my life. They all lived long lives, but no amount of cat time is ever enough! I'm a shameless Cat Lady and this is my dream job. I will love your cats like my own. I will happily take care of feeding, litter box cleaning, playing and/or just company and sensitive attention. I have extensive experience, including subcu...

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

I've taken care of friends' cats in my home while they traveled for years at a time and I've been a Meowtel sitter for 5 years.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Sigmund Freud himself said, "Time spent with a cat is never wasted". It's true that spending time with a cat is good for my mental health and blood pressure. (Studies have shown.) And they are so beautiful, mysterious and comforting. Or goofy, tricky and clever. Or aloof and superior. Or shy and sweet.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

Once after a long lap session, as I got up and got ready to go, the cat flung himself across the front door threshold like a protestor and grabbed my foot to prevent me from leaving.

Ariel took the best care of our cat for more than a week while we were on vacation. She’s incredibly kind and a great communicator- going above and beyond to send lots of photos and updates. I highly recommend her!!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $35.00. 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.
