I'm Mackenzie | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Hi there! My name is Mackenzie and I hope to be your new favorite cat sitter! I grew up with many pets, and now have a 6-year-old Bengal named Louie. I’ve always loved animals and believe they are family and should be treated as such. I know from personal experience how difficult it can be to find a reliable sitter and enjoy time away while your cat is home alone. I plan to be your eyes and ears on the ground to make sure your cat is comfortable and happy! I’m located in...

Mackenzie's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Mackenzie was a fantastic sitter and our 4 Yr old cat Butter felt immediately comfortable with her. Mackenzie was super responsive, warm, and proactive about reaching out with questions to double check various details, as well as sending great photos. Would love to have her sit for Butter again!

Mackenzie is an absolute gem! She took care of our very special needs little man, Hudson, for a period of three weeks. She is incredibly kind, and our not-so affectionate guy really took to her. Her attention to detail--including a complex medication schedule--was top knotch and she was incredibly communicative with updates and photos. She went above and beyond when we had a kitty health concern and was quick to react. We have been hesitant to travel because of the enormity of Hudson's needs, but we will absolutely work with Mackenzie in the future. She put our anxious minds at ease. Mackenzie is a spectacular care taker and we could not be more grateful to her!

I was able to relax and not worry about my fur babies knowing Mackenzie was taking great care of them. She sent some truly excellent, and funny, pictures and always let me know how things were going.

Mackenzie accepted our reservation at the last minute and did a great job doing as we asked, despite not having time to meet in person before our departure. Would definitely have Mackenzie watch our two cats again.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $32.00.

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.
