I'm Kate | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Hi! I’m Kate Z (she/her), and if you ask any of my family & friends to tell you one thing about me, it'll probably be that I'm a cat person. I grew up in a family with multiple cats and have always found my feline friends to be oh so charming, amusing, and loving. One of my proudest achievements in the past several years has been converting my husband to be a cat person too 😅 We have two resident cats at home: 10-year-old Clarence, who’s my own personal barnacle, and 5-year-old Mia - we joke that she has two brain cells, one for food, and one specifically for cream cheese. In 2022, we also began fostering for the rescue organization Forever Fortunate Felines, and we’ve fostered & found furrever homes for 20 cats and kittens so far. In the past I also volunteered at an animal shelter to socialize cats for adoption. Over the course of my life I've cared for cats ranging from 5 weeks old to seniors. I am also able to administer meds (oral, topical/transdermal, ear, eye, inhaler). I work from home as a kidney specialist dietitian, and aside from work I love to run, go to yoga classes, tend to my housep...

Kate's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Kate is an awesome kitty caretaker. She was great with our two 22 month old kittens. She sent great photos, played with them in a very engaging way, and follows feeding instructions. We are grateful and will absolutely be using Kate again.

Knowing Kate is there to take care of things, particularly when one of the cats has an eye infection, means I can relax.

Kate is a wonderful cat sitter! My kitties enjoy seeing her, and I receive the best updates. I feel so much more comfortable traveling and enjoying my time away from home knowing that Kate has it covered. I have an older cat who needs medication and sometimes has accidents outside the litter box - Kate handles all of it professionally and warmly.

I’m so thankful for Kate! She communicated well, sent lots of photos and administered oral meds to our cat with epilepsy with care. Will definitely seek her care in the future!!

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.
