Meow! I'm Mary, a Cat Sitter in , IL

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 it gives me opportunities to see all different parts of the city! I know what it’s like to constantly worry about your pets while you’re away, and completely understand how nerve-racking it can be to leave them in the care of someone new. I’ll do ev...

So glad we found Mary! My shy girls, Mary and Rhoda, loved her. She took such great care, sent photos, gave Rhoda her meds with no problem at all. Even handled an unfortunate hairball moment with grace. 😊 We’ll definitely be hiring Mary again!

Mary went above & beyond! My cats got pretty stressed that I was gone & had some accidents/sick which I expected and told her to just clean the best she could & I’d do a deep clean once I was home but she cleaned it all & even emptied the vacuum and took out the trash! I came home to 2 happy kitties

Mary did an excellent job taking care of our two cats while we were gone on vacation. She set up photos each day and kept us up to date on how they were doing. And, She even cleaned a few dishes in the sink! 💛 thank you so much!!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $29.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
