I'm Lauren | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Meow me to introduce myself. I am Lauren--Crazy cat lady, conservation biologist, zoo evaluator, Broadway enthusiast (except CATS, it is just purr-plexing), and dedicated cat sitter here to serve your city kitties. Mama to late, fickle, 15-year-old Hudson, I have lots of experience with the cat-itude of a very tenacious tabby. Cats have pretty much been a constant figure in my adult life. In addition to Hudson, my little family of three (there is a husband too) traveled with The Lion King tour for a number of years, and I studied how Canada lynx use habitat in Minnesota for my master’s degree. My love of all things cats made me the go-to cat sitter among my friends and colleagues. It taught me the many personalities and needs of different cats, but it was Hudson and his chronic illnesses that really prepared me for anything and everything. I have extensive experience with basic daily care tasks, kitty hygiene, medication administration, diabetic management, belly rubs, and sometimes just hang...

Learn More About Lauren

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I have been cat sitting intermittently for friends and family for nearly 16 years! I've worked with Maine Coons with a lot to say, chunky boys that love to snuggle, and sassy gals that do things on their own terms.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love cat sitting because it gives me the opportunity to wrangle cats of all personalities, shapes, sizes and attitudes. Currently, I am looking forward to cat sitting because I very much miss my own furry baby of 15 years, and want to be able to use my experience and share my love with a cat who means that much to someone else.

Are you usually available during holidays?

I am indeed available during holidays! As Chicago transplants, it's a bit of a hike to our families on the east coast, so my husband and I spend holidays here in the Windy City.

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.
