I'm Christine | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL
If you ask any of my friends what my favorite thing in the world is, it’s cats! I have two of my own (orange is Rufio; gray is Wendy), and I can’t wait to meet your cat! I’ve had cats my whole life, starting right when I was born. Feeding the cats and emptying the litter box were my chores growing up, so I learned cat care early. I also learned cats can require a lot of patience and nurturing to warm up to you, or they may be warm from the get-go. I respect all cat’s levels of comfort with me and gauge how I act toward them based on their reactions. I’ve been a volunteer with Chicago Animal Care & Control in transporting cats to their foster homes, rescues, and vet appointments. I have also fostered kittens and adult cats. Over the summer, I rescued 4 kittens from an abandoned parking lot: fed them to gain their trust, then arranged for a rescue to trap them and foster them. I then...
Christine was amazing while we were gone. I came home to two very happy cats 🐱. One of our cats is very very shy and Christine was able to pet her multiple times which I was shocked by. Christine is a great communicator and it is obvious she loves cats and they love her. Bonus: she took really cool / artsy pictures 😊
Christine was literally the BEST sitter we have EVER had!! Our boy is super shy of new people, and does not come out for anyone except us. But he was hanging out with Christine, giving her snuggles, being silly, and he had no anxiety whatsoever! I’ve never seen him do that before. She literally has a gift - she knew how to address his personality and adapt to make him feel comfortable. Not to mention she sent TONS of pictures and detailed updates, which was our favorite part!! She captured his charisma and we will be framing several because they were so adorable. I literally cannot recommend Christine enough, she is amazing!!
Christine was so caring and attentive to our little fur baby! Would definitely recommend!! She sent many pictures and videos each visit which was really nice and thoughtful. She is really quick with responding to messages and is always nice and respectful. This was our first time booking a cat sitter so we were nervous at first, but Christine exceeded all our expectations!
Christine alleviated all of my worries about leaving my cats for 10 days. she came around the same time every day at my request and took more pictures than I could ever ask for with text updates. I could tell she cares for cats as if they were her own. I’d book her again without hesitation!
Christine is exceptional. Super communicative, punctual, friendly, and extremely thorough. We knew before we left that our cat was in very capable and caring hands, and she was clearly well-loved the whole time. Christine is a pleasure to work with, and we would absolutely request her as a cat-sitter again.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $32.00.
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.
