I'm Christine | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Meow there! I'm Chris and I'd love to help care for your kitties! I've adored cats for as long as I can remember. I've been cat-mom to many, and I've cared for lots of friends'/neighbors' cats. I also have previous experience working with small animals at the zoo and at a grooming salon. When I'm not cat-sitting, I do same-day grocery shopping/delivery. Generally my schedule is flexible, but I'm not usually available mornings or Sunday evenings. You're welcome to make your reservation however you're comfortable, but if you're unsure I recommend: 1-2 shy kitties are ok with 20 minute visits 1-5 playful kitties might need 45 minute visits If you have 5 or more kitties (or even 1 very cuddly kitty) please consider 60 minute visits. I would also suggest once daily visits for most, espec...

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

My favorite reservation so far has been with a sweet kitty named Jeff. Jeffrey is a sweetheart, a cuddle bug and just the handsomest scarf I ever did wear (see my photo gallery)!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

It's so rewarding when a skittish kitty warms up to me. I always start by introducing myself with a gentle voice. Eventually, I attempt to win them over with treats or food. I move slowly and steadily and talk to them throughout the visit, even if they choose to hide. I'm finding that many of the nervous kitties I care for, given enough time and patience, will start to relax.

Christine has become our go to sitter. This will was below zero. She made it out daily to care for our cats. We are glad to have her available.

I was very happy with the service that Christine provided. Her updates were very detailed and timely. We loved receiving pictures and videos on a daily basis. The entire transaction gave us a great deal of peace of mind that our fur babies were being taken care of in our absence. We have already booked her for our next trip.

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.

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.
