I'm Katherine | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

I’ve dedicated my life to helping animals in need. I’ve spent nearly a decade working as a videographer for a small non-profit that investigates animal cruelty. I’ve traveled the country documenting, reporting on, and rescuing abused animals. From pigeons to tigers—I’ve stood up for neglected animals and worked to remove them from tragic situations. How people treat animals often reflects how they treat people, so standing up for animals is my contribution to making the world a better place. I’ll be honest though—I love all animals, but cats occupy a special place in my heart. My two cats, Crowley and Persephone, mean the world to me. Nothing stresses me out more than having to say goodbye to the...

Learn More About Katherine

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Meeting new cats! Cats have such unique personalities, so it's always fun getting to know them. I find it so rewarding when even the shyest cats deem me worthy of their time.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Enjoy your trip! I know it can be stressful leaving your kitties behind, but I will make sure they're taken care of. I’ll also send daily updates. Feel free to reach out to me at any point during the reservation.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

I let them take the lead. If your cats are shy I will usually go about whatever task you need me to do first so they get use to my presence. When I’m done with that then I’ll offer treats (if you allow that) or play. I’ll attempt to pet them if they seem into the idea or I’ll just hang out with them.

We appreciate Katherine as our cat sitter because she is great at communicating and sending wonderful photos while we're away. This last visit one of our cats tore into the dry food bag, but Katherine took care of it and made sure the cats had more food the time. Thank you so much!

Katherine was an excellent sitter for our two cats. She made sure to send us photos each day and they were amazing shots! She also was thorough in her questions about their routines and knowing what each cat likes/dislikes. We will definitely request her again for future visits!

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.

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.
