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. As long as the instructions are clear we shouldn’t hav...

Rachel did an amazing job--she communicated every day to let me know how Mojo was doing and what he'd been up to. I can't wait to have her take care of Mojo again.

I booked Rachel again and she went above and beyond for my cat when I went out of town. He was stressed that I was gone, but Rachel made sure to check in with me, cleaned up after his messes, and do as much as she could for a very stressed kitty. Thank you so so much Rachel!

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.
