I'm Sylvia | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

I’ve had cats my whole life and have loved them as companions. I adopted my own first cat four years ago so I have recent experience with the kitten phase. I often pet sit for friends as well with cats of varying sociability and with different dietary needs. I will care for your pets as if they were my own! I am available for any kinds of care - daily feedings and playtime, overnight care, medicine distribution, etc. I want to make sure t...

Attention to Detail

Sylvia did a great job taking care of my cat Mossy while I was gone and I’ll definitely book her again for whenever I’m out of town!

Sylvia was wonderful! My 2 kitties can be very needy in their own ways and they were quick to get in her lap and ask for belly rubs. She followed my directions perfectly and communication was excellent throughout the week. Thank you again, Sylvia!!

I was pleased with the care Sylvia provided for my two cats. She followed all instructions and sent me daily reports with pictures! She also went the extra mile and brought in some packages from the lobby of my building into my apartment. Thank you, Sylvia!

Sylvia was great! She was patient with my very shy cat and kept great communication while I was gone.

Sylvia was a great sitter for my little Dave while I was out of town. In addition to all the kitty duties (incl. cleaning the box) she even watered my plants! Sylvia is very responsive. Grateful for the updates from her along the way. Would definitely recommend.

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.

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.
