I'm Nicholle | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

I'm your friendly tattooed cat sitter with over 17 years’ experience! I have worked in the pet care industry since 2007 and feel that I have a good understanding of what pet parents want. I am new to Meowtel but have been regularly sitting on other care apps for over 10 years. Additionally, I have experience in vet care, including vet assisting, administering medications, post-surgery recovery, and I am CPR and First Aid certified. Administering medications (including insulin), subcutaneous fluids, or time sensitive doses is no problem for me. I've worked with canines and felines of all life stages, as well as rodents, reptiles, and birds. In my spare time, I foster kittens, mostly taking on the neonatal "bottle babies" that require feeding throughout the night. In a typical year, I may foster 20-30 animals, and I work with several rescues to focus on their most critical (and youngest!) population. I am starting my Meowtel journey in hopes to better fund my foster hobby and be able to expand my resources and help more cats and kittens. I own four cats, acquired through my years working in rescue, whom I love very muc...

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

I have been cat sitting professionally for 17 years. I have cared for cats of various ages, breeds, and temperaments with varying medical needs. I also hand rear orphaned kittens in my spare time, which has given me an even greater knowledge of cat care. I have also worked in veterinary settings to learn about feline health and behavior, and helped to create behavior modification plans for adoptable pets.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I enjoy bonding with a cat and being the beacon of comfort when their human is away. Getting to know a shy cat and building trust with them is one of the greatest feelings in the world! Happy cats = happy cat parents, and that makes me happy too!

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

I have a regular client who has been with me through the lives of three different cats. I started out sitting for them in 2017. After their senior cat passed, they kept me in mind for when they adopted a new cat and needed care for him. They recently adopted a kitten as well, and it has been amazing to watch their little family grow and to know that they trust me to care for all of their kitties.

Nicholle is just stellar! She is such a pro and so experienced (my senior cat Frances needs a few extra kinds of care like medication) and was so flexible with us, and I can tell Nicholle made Frances feel safe and cared for while we were away, and for us that peace of mind was everything.

this reservation went as smooth as the last, Nicki arrived on time scheduled, and fed the boys as requested and helped us with their litter. one of our boys is a little more shy and she’s kind and patient with him, our other one is a lover boy and wanted all the pets. we always appreciate having Nicki watch the boys when we’re out of town and could not recommend her enough!

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.
