I'm Courtney | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

ABOUT: With 10+ years of experience caring for cats, I have always described myself as a cat whisperer. At friends’ houses, I am always the one who gets the shy or moody cat to cuddle or play! Cats have always been my favorite animal. I currently have two cats, Kiwi and Sesame, who I’ve had for 4 years. Kiwi is a very finicky cat, so I'm used to kitties with big personalities. She's very shy sometimes but very food motivated, so I know to reward her with treats whenever she does allow us to pet and be around her. Sesame, on the other hand, is an extremely friendly cat that loves to play and meow. He loves cuddles, laser pointers, and feather toys. He is high energy, while Kiwi is low energy. In the past, I have worked with cats at a shelter as a volunteer, giving them medication and playing with them in the cat room at the shelter. I also have experience walking dogs - but typically that is a service I provide only upon...

Learn More About Courtney

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to know each and every cat and their unique personalities! Every cat is different, and it’s my favorite part of cat sitting.

What is your favorite cat toy?

My favorite cat toy is an old Target exclusive: witch mice! My cat Kiwi loved them because they were iridescent/holographic. I love them because they’re spooky and colorful!

Courtney was great! She sent a lot of updates and pictures while she watched our very shy cat. This was our first time using a cat sitter, and it was so nice to know our cat was in good hands! We would definitely choose her again!

Courtney was amazing with my three cats! She sent lots of photos and gave really great updates after each visit. My cats really seemed to warm up to her very quickly, and she kept their space tidy and clean while we were out of town. I would absolutely recommend Courtney for your cat sitting needs, and I will be booking with her again!

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 $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.
