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 6-year-old Mia - we joke that she has two brain cells, one for food, and one specifically for cream cheese. Since 2022, we’ve also fostered with Forever Fortunate Felines, fostering & finding furrever homes for 25 cats and kittens so far. Over the course of my life & catsitting career 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 telehealth dietitian, and aside from work, I love to run, go to yoga classes, tend to my houseplants, and read romance nove...

Kate is fantastic! She has been taking care of our two cats since they came into our lives as kitties last summer each time we havr left town. We have peace of mind that Kate will be there as scheduled and that she takes great care of our two girls. They know Kate and look forward to her being there. She not only does the feeding and scooping, but plays with them and spends time petting them and hanging out - and sends great pics while doing so. Kate will continue to be our go to caregiver!

Kate is my go to caretaker for my cats. Always responsive, great photos, and even came back later in the day when my lock was broken and we had to get someone in to fix it. Thank you, Kate, for your fantastic care of Ham and Clementine!

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.
