I'm Laura | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Hi everyone! My name is Laura, and I've been a cat lover my whole life! I grew up with two cats at home, and currently have a 15-year-old orange cat named Orange Cat. I love cats of every shape, size, and age, but since OC is an older cat, I have a special place in my heart for elderly kitties. If you are looking for senior cat care, we would probably be a great fit! I know from experience how stressful looking for care can be as your pet ages. I am proficient in giving oral medication to cats, as OC requires several pills every day and has needed liquid medicine often. So no worries if your kitty needs some special attention! For my day job, I am a teacher in the suburbs. I have a Masters in Education from Northwestern and teach English/Language Arts to high sch...

Laura took excellent care of my cat! She spent quality time with her and sent lots of photos and updates. She even coordinated with my landlord to drop off the keys. I will definitely work with her again!

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.
