I'm Joyce | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Feel Yourself Being Drawn By The Deeper Pull Of What You Truly Love.....Rumi Hi! I'm Joyce...Im so excited to be putting my head and heart into what I love and starting this new adventure of both taking care of cats which is my dream and helping people who are looking for peace of mind and comfort when it comes to their beloved fur babies when they have to be away from them. I've had cats since I was young and I can't imagine living without them. I currently have 2 beautiful boys. My senior boy Timmy who loves chin rubs, belly rubs, treats, and sleeping right next to me, and my five-year-old Wick who loves to climb on my back, sleep on my head, and is a ball of energy. I have also volunteered at various shelters throughout the years including Furry Friends Foundation in the 90s and most currently at The Anti Cruelty. I've dealt with shy cats, active cats, lap cats, spicy cats, kittens, and seniors. I try to use their cues to how I will proceed with them. I want them to feel safe, comfortable and as loved as they do when they have their owner there with them. What you can ...

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 $35.00. 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.
