I'm Mary | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Dear Chicago clients: I will be moving to another city on August 1st, so unfortunately I will no longer be available starting in July as I prepare for the move. (If you've already booked me for July, that is still on, it will just be the last time I'm able to sit for you.) I've really loved getting to work with all of you and your cats. I can't thank you enough for being so kind and for trusting me to take care of your babies. It's truly been a joy, and I'll miss all of your kitties so much!! I have loved cats all my life and, until recent years, had always lived with at least one for as long as I could remember. My family has five cats currently, but I don’t have any because I now live with a partner who has a cat allergy. Not having a cat at home anymore makes cat sitting even more exciting for me because I to get to enjoy some of the feline company I miss! In high school, I used to volunteer at an animal shelter. In college, I was a regular pet-sitter and house-sitter for a family with three dogs, two cats, and a few goats. I also pet sit around my neighborhood here in Chicago. I’m located in Hyde Park/Kenwood and would love to sit for cats in the area! I can also travel around Chicago if you’re not in Hyde Park. Part of what I like about pet sitting is that ...

Mary was great. We got a good vibe from her during the meet and greet. She is very sweet and thoughtful and asked good questions. While we were away she sent pics of our kitty and messages about how she was doing everyday. We were very comforted knowing she was being well taken care of. Our kitty was very calm and relaxed when we got home, so we know she was in good hands. Mary had no issue giving our cat her medication or feeding wet food during her daily visit.

Mary is a kind, thoughtful cat sitter! She took such good care of our two cats while we were away. She sent pictures for each visit, even kept our place tidy, and played with our cats. We’re so grateful to have found Mary!

Mary was amazing as always! We have worked with Mary several times. She is awesome. Our cats love her and when we come back they are in an excellent mood and the condo is pristine. Thank you Mary!

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.
