I'm Lisa | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Learn More About Lisa

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I love getting to meet new cats and getting time to play with them.

Are you usually available during holidays?

Yes I am available during most holidays

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

With timid cats I make sure to allow time so they can come to me. Often if you sit quietly for a period of time even the most timid cat will pop its head up to check you out, if the reservation is for multiple days by the end even the most timid cats start to come out to say Hi. The key is not to make the cat feel like they are being crowded or that they no longer can hide in their safe spaces.

Lisa's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Lisa took great care of our two cats, Max and Suki, during a recent trip we took. She was prompt with all of her updates and sent great photos of the cats playing while she was visiting with them. I didn’t have to worry at all because I knew they were in great care with Lisa while we were out of town.

Lisa did a great job caring for our cats while we were away. She sent pictures everyday of the cats, which made being away from them a little less difficult.

Lisa was a fantastic sitter. She checked in on our two cats while we were out over the holiday period and ensured food was topped up, litter was cleaned, and treats were given. She also sent over photos during each visit, and even tried hard to get a photo of one of our cats that hides deep under the bed when guests are over! Thank you :)

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.
