Meow! I'm Rachel, a Cat Sitter in , IL

I'm the person who spends the whole party sitting on the floor with the cat. I currently own two kittens, Bear and Bean (named for the city of Chicago!) and have spent my entire life around cats. I know how scary it can be to leave your pets, so as a cat sitter my goal is to give you peace of mind so you can enjoy your trip and know your kitty will be safe and sound when you return. I'm extremely diligent and thorough, so expect high-quality and very adorable photos of your cat and very detailed notes from my visits. I have experience with many different types of cats: I grew up with two very large tom cats (8Y M) who are not the friendliest, I have my kittens who are the cuddliest little ladies you'll ever meet, and I've fostered extremely vocal and needy cats, and a momma cat with a litter of five.

Rachael was amazing. Her calming presence was great for my shy guy. My cats were docile, well adjusted and energetic when we returned which is not always the case. She was neat, communicative without being invasive and my door staff was delighted by her attitude.

Everything was perfect, it was a last-minute getaway and I was so happy to have found Rachel. She was thorough and the kitties loved her.

This was my first time using this app and it was awesome! Rachel was everything I hoped for and more. She sent detailed updates and pictures and spent the entire time playing with my cat. My cat can be a little picky about meeting people the first time, so it was obvious Rachel gets cats because my cat LOVED her. Rachel made the process easy and was incredibly respectful of my space and listened closely to the little details. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
