I'm Gabby | Cat Sitting in Deerfield, IL

Hi, I’m Gabby! Asking someone to take care of your kitty in your home is a big and important decision, and I couldn't be more excited that you're considering me as your cat sitter! I'm a cat person through and through. I've had cats my entire life and currently have 3: Frankie, Ramona, and Harold. They couldn't be more different from each other which makes home fun and interesting! When I'm not at home, most of my friends and family also have cats so I'm lucky to hangout with them, too. I tend to befriend kitties quicker than most, which is a skill I’m very proud of 😊 My primary occupation is an HR Manager at Blue Buffalo (yes, pet food!), so loving and treating pets like family is something that is always top of mind for me. I work remotely which my cats love because we can hangout and join work meetings together! This also means...

Learn More About Gabby

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have 3 kitties! Ramona is a chatty, independent, beautiful tortoiseshell lady who loves to burrow under blankets. Frankie, Ramona’s bonded, littermate, is a shy, very handsome and sweet gray stripped tabby who can’t go without nighttime snuggles. Harold is an energetic, outdoor loving (screened in catio only) orange tabby who enjoys booty pats. I can’t imagine them not being the center of our family!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a cat sitter?

Allowing someone to care for your cat(s) is an important decision, and your comfort is just as important as your kitty’s. Choose a cat sitter you feel comfortable with and trust. Meet your cat sitter and ask questions to get a better understanding of how they’ll care for your kitty. I hope that person is me 😊

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

I always talk with the cat parent to understand what will make them and the anxious kitty most comfortable. I never force interactions as I don’t want to cause additional stress. It might sound silly, but using a calming voice, I’ll talk to kitty and take time to see how they react. I might hold out my hand and say “Hi, Bean. I’m here to hangout with you for a bit. How are you doing? Do you want some pets?” From there, if kitty doesn’t want to hang, I’ll give them space. If they seem interested, I’ll follow their lead in how they want to interact. Every kitty will have a different approach!

First time making a connection through Meowtel, and would love to have Gabby return in the future. It makes traveling that much more enjoyable knowing our Marble is in good care!

Gabby did a great job caring for my two kitties. She gave thorough updates, sent lots of photos, and even got my shy cat to come out and play. Highly recommend!

This was the first time I had ever had a cat sitter come. I had something come up last minute and Gabby was so amazing and set me at ease immediately! I definitely plan on having her come again. She took great care of my kitties!

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 $33.00. 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.
