I'm Lauren | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

I will take my time getting to know your cat and making them feel super comfortable. I love tiring out rambunctious kittens and patiently catering to older and people-shy cats. I have administered pills, topical ointments, and injections - specifically I have worked with several diabetic cats. Always happy to pick up mail, water plants, or any other small tasks you’d l...

Learn More About Lauren

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

I have been with Meowtel since March 2022. Previous to that I was consistently catsitting for friends and I grew up with cats my whole life. My first word was actually “kitty”!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

My own cat Lilah is extremely anxious, and every day is a balance of giving her the space as well as all of the attention she needs. I also have a crazy kitten (named Grape!) who needs lots of playtime and attention.

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

I always ensure door is locked and lockbox, if applicable, is secure. Even with shy cats who hide I try to make sure I can see them at some point during my visit to make sure they are okay.

I am so thankful that we had Lauren. We just moved to Chicago and did not know anyone to watch the cats, she did such a great job taking care of them while we were away for 9 days, especially my very old cat. Thank you!!

Lauren did a fantastic job caring for our two cats, DW and Tuesday. Lauren sent detailed updates, and went above and beyond to ensure that our cats got the best care possible while we were away. Would absolutely recommend Lauren for anybody who is looking for a cat sitter.

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 $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.
