I'm Rachel | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Hello! I was a cat mom to a chatty black cat for 8 years and his one-of-a-kind personality turned me into a proud cat person. After his unexpected passing, I’ve been looking to fill the hole in my heart he left behind. I would love to take care of your kitties while you’re away and give them all the love and care they deserve. Whether you're on vacation or just need a little extra help, I'm here to make things easier for you and your cats. Understanding each cat’s unique personality takes time, but that’s what makes them so interesting. I have experience watching my friends’ cats for many years, some of them being special needs or requiring medication, and checking in on them is always the highlight of my day. While kittens are fun, I've really developed a soft spot for caring for senior cats and cats with special needs! Attention to detail is one of my strengths, so you can expect a daily in-depth summary and plenty of pictures of your furry friend while you're away...

Rachel's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Rachel is great!! I have a special needs kitty who requires meds on a specific schedule and I so appreciate how timely, thoughtful, and attentive Rachel was with her. She sent updates and photos each visit too which made being far away a little bit easier :) I will definitely hire Rachel again!

Rachel is excellent. I’ve booked her multiple times and she is able to handle my moody kitty and his attitude. Definitely booking again in the future!

I can’t say enough great things about Rachel! This is the second time she’s cared for our kitty while we were on vacation. She’s a great communicator and sends us updates and adorable pics each day. Rachel really went above and beyond even washing our dishes and taking our trash out while we were gone. She even checked our water for us this past week when it dropped below 0!! Rachel is the best! I would highly recommend her!

I have three cats with very different personalities and Rachel was fantastic with all three of them!! She was quick to reply, sent great photos, and overall my cats really, really liked her which is the most important! I would 100% have Rachel sit again!

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
