I'm Kate | Cat Sitting in Glenview, IL

Hi! I’m a lifelong cat guru. I grew up in an animal shelter and have cared for hundreds of cats. I love them very much and everyone knows it. The silly tuxedo kitty above is my daughter, Emory. I scooped her as a teeny, squealing kitten from a storm drain on the 4th of July, 2019—and she’s been a clingy little pumpkin ever since. Growing up, my family always rescued and fostered animals and my parents continue to do so on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia—kitty paradise. With friends' pets, I'm the one who the notoriously standoff-ish cat walks up to purring, and friends say, "(shocked) They never do that for anyone!" So you could, indeed, say I'm a cat whisperer of sorts. I know sitters aren't typically vet techs but I'm extremely used to caring for pets with special medical needs and know all the signs and symptoms of when something's wrong. A little more background: I have a bachelor's degree in urban planning/photography/medical illustration as well as post-baccalaureate bio-med coursework. I worked for years as a home-care aide to [human] geriatric patients and also took care of their houses/pets while completing biomed coursework. I’m very used to following detailed instructions when it comes to household needs. Anyway, I had planned on going to med school lon...

Kate's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Kate was great, informative about our cat while we were gone, and left things neat.

I have two high-maintenance cats (emotionally and medically) and they loved her and clearly trusted her (I could tell by the pictures and how they were when I got home). Kate also went above and beyond (i.e. cleaned my sheets, cleaned in general) and was so sweet! She clearly knows her way with cats, genuinely cares, and it's relieving to have someone like that watch my cats I will definitely be going to her in the future!!

I would definitely use Kate again. She went above and beyond by cleaning after our cat babies in the kitchen as well as liter. The cat food and water with ice was refreshed and clean. One of our cats is shy and needed extra attention. Kate took care of her. I believe our cat was looking for Kate even after I returned home. I cannot say enough about how reliable and caring Kate was with our cats.

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.

If you are not fully satisfied with your sitter after the Meet & Greet or during the reservation, please call 1-844-636-9835 so we can help you re-book with a new sitter to ensure we can deliver on our purrfect hospitality promise.

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.
