I'm Erika | Cat Sitting in Evanston, IL

As a licensed social worker and therapist, I firmly believe in the healing power of cats! They provide us with unconditional companionship and comfort. As a child, I grew up with a sassy gal named Precious, and in my adult life, I have adopted two cats named Matcha and Miso. I currently work remotely as a Utilization Review Specialist at a behavioral health company, and my day typically ends with me closing my laptop and taking them out for a walk or a ride in their stroller. (Yes, I bought them a stroller!) I also volunteer weekly at Paws and Claws Cat Shelter in Evanston. My love for cats has been present for pretty much my whole life. I grew up in a bi-cultural household and have family both in the US and Japan. As a child, I was constantly trying to befriend the stray cats and bring them into my grandparent’s home, much to their chagrin. As an adult, I have been a patron at probably 15 different cat cafes all over Japan, as Googling “cats near me...

Erika is the best cat sitter we have ever hired! She made me feel super safe about who was looking after our kitty. She sent me tons of updates and sent videos everyday my door being closed and locked which I loved. Our extremely shy kitty even came out and gave her a sniff (major win, our cat is not social at all). Will def be asking her back 10/10!!

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.
