I'm Leni | Cat Sitting in Oak Forest, IL
Hi! I’m Leni, a dedicated owner of 2 precious furrbabies, Shadow and Luna. I grew up with cats and dogs, and I’ve been a cat owner my entire adult life. I love how mischievous, funny, receptive, decisive, and wise my cats are and how they always show what they want (more like demand, but we won't say that). Outside of being with my own cats, I live with 2 roommates that share my love for animals so between the 3 of us we have 3...
Leni is an Angel on Earth! Leni loves what she does and it shows. My cats fell in love with her immediately. Leni took an unfortunate event ( my oldest cat passing away while I was on a business trip) and made sure my fur baby was comfortable and loved in the last moments of her life. I am in debt to Leni for being there at that moment. I am forever grateful.
Working with Leni is my best experience by far! She is very personable and I felt so comfortable in her presence and also leaving my babies in her capable hands. When I explained how I would prepare all of the bowls of food in advance, she immediately said that she would take care of that for me. She suggested a system for me and she did the rest. I cannot tell you how much time she saved me. I have 4 cats and I would have had to set up 36 meals for the duration of my trip. She offered to bring in my mail and packages and my only girl out of my 4 babies, came out for her everyday and she even allowed Leni to touch her. Besides me and the vet, no one has ever been able to get anywhere near her. Leni sent me pictures and kept me posted about their eating and litter habits. I appreciate Leni's top notch service!
Leni is great! Our cat really likes her, too.
Leni was great! Our cat loved her. Leni sent us pictures everyday which meant a lot to us. She also told us what kind of mood the cat was in, etc. It made us feel better about being gone. Our cat requires daily medication and Leni took care of that with no problems. We would definitely use Leni again.
Leni is the best!! I'm usually a mess when leaving my cats, even if I have family watching them, but knowing Leni was taking care of my girls put my mind at ease & let me enjoy my vacation. Leni is very responsive & gave me updates with pictures everyday. I would have her watch them again when away.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $35.00.
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.
