I'm Katie | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

I will provide your cats with the same love and care they would receive from you! I grew up in a household with 4 cats (and a dog, and a rabbit and guinea pig) and currently have two cats of my own. My girls Molly and Ruby are 7 and 1, respectively, and they require a lot of special care, so I am well prepared to take care of even the most fussy cats. I have experience with shy cats, aggressive cats, energetic cats and kittens, friendly cats and more! I’ve administered eye drops, liquid medication, and powder medication. I've taken my cats on walks with a leash and harness, too. I spoil them rotten and would do the same with your cats. Not just a cat person, I volunteer ...

Learn More About Katie

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes! Molly and Ruby. They’re the best.

Are you usually available during holidays?

For federal holidays, yes! I don’t have a traditional 9-5 corporate job so I don’t typically get long weekends away from work.

What is your favorite cat toy?

Cat dancer or little fuzzy balls - they’re my girls’ favorites.

Katie's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Katie is amazing! This was the first time I’ve left my cats for a trip since relocating to the area and she handled my worries beautifully! She’s a great communicator who sent me lots of pictures and updates every time she visited. I have one cat who is particularly shy but even she warmed up to Katie as well. Will absolutely book her again!

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 $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.
