Meow! I'm Kathleen, a Cat Sitter in , 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 (15 years old), Jingle (13 years old), Berri and Gerri (3 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 for many years I am trained to look for a...

Kathy was great! She sent me updates with photos of my cats playing while under her care. She also was in communication with me in regards to certain items I had marked for her attention. I was able to relax and enjoy my time away without worry.

Kathleen was very good with my Sylvie. She made sure she had plenty of food and attention, and she always gave me updates on how my girl was doing.

Kathleen did an outstanding job taking care of our two cats while my wife and I went on a week long vacation. She provided updates with pictures each time she stopped by to feed them which put our minds at ease.

Kathy made us feel so comfortable with leaving our kitten for the first time! She has so much experience with cats I knew she would be the perfect choice for us. She gave updates daily and assured us everything was fine and we would not have to worry about the care our baby was getting. Seeing the pictures she sent daily confirmed everything was great. Kathy was so professional in her care and communication with us we will be using her as long as she is available to us. I can’t thank her enough..

Kathleen Reiser did an outstanding job watching over my 4 cats, including feeding them and cleaning their litter. She even received multiple greetings from my only girl and she never comes out for anyone. Kathleen also took care of my outdoor cats. She followed all instructions to the letter! I am so thankful to have found Meowtel and Kathleen!!

Frequently Asked Questions

The average price for a cat sitter is $28.00.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel. 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.
