I'm Melissa | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

I’ve taken care of cats for more than 10 years now. Worked with a cat shelter dedicated to 40+ cats with feline leukemia, was a foster mom to many of those FIV kitties, and an overall cat lover. I am an experienced cat sitter, with 50+ clients in Chicago and Detroit, many of whom became regulars. My full-time job (in nonprofit fundraising) is fully remote and has a fairly flexible schedule, so I can care for cats during the day or overni...

This is the second time Melissa catsits for us, and it is always wonderful to come home after she has been here. Cats are in great mood, not stressed at all and the home is pristine. Thank you so much Melissa!

Melissa was the best cat sitter you can ask for. She is extremely passionate about taking care of cats, very trustworthy, and goes above and beyond with her service. She was prompt with her daily updates, which made me feel very secure about my kittens while I was gone. Thank you Melissa and I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a reliable 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.

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.
