I'm Kathleen | Cat Sitting in Orland Park, IL
Cats have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and still are. I currently have 4 cats, Cosmic (16 years old), Jingle (14 years old), Berri and Gerri (4 years old). I used to foster for a local rescue and that is how I welcomed Berri and Gerri into my home, I was a "Pandemic Foster Failure". I wanted my children to grow up wih cats, like I did and that is how Cosmic came into our lives when he was a kitten from P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park. Cosmic was adopted with his sister Daisy, but unfortunately Daisy was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of one. Daisy passed from complications with epilepsy and Cosmic was lonely for a sister. That is how Jingle became part of our family right before Thanksgiving from P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park. With having four cats right now, it is more difficult for me to foster, so now for the past 5 years I have volunteered at P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park with my daughter. By working at P.A.W.S. and fostering...
Kathleen was amazing to work with; punctual, honest, reliable, detail oriented and so so friendly to my cats!
Kathleen is consistently dependable, interactive, observant and caring of Shorty and Chester. I had to travel due to a death, and the last thing I needed was to feel split and worried, and unable to focus on this farewell. Her updates were timely and photos of my boys put the needed smile on my face and any anxiety to rest. I've used her previously and hoping she'll continue to be available for my furbabies.
Kathleen did a great job of caring for our two cats while we went on a trip out of state. The cats were well cared for and the daily updates with photos put our minds at ease.
I was anxious about leaving my 2 boys with someone new, but they immediately responded to Kathleen’s engaging conversation. In fact I could see them on our camera comfortably following Kathleen. I appreciated her reports and questions, and of course, photos!
She is very experienced and I felt very comfortable having our cats in her care. She shared pictures of both cats each day as well as notes of how the visit went/how the cats were doing.

Frequently Asked Questions
The average price for a cat sitter is $33.00.
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.
