I'm Shishona | Cat Sitting in Plainfield, IL

I have been around cats all my life. I currently have two beautiful kitties at home: Nibbler and Mothball. I definitely cannot live in a house without a cat. They are my world. I have two kids at home, a boy and girl. My son is 2 years old and my daughter is 4 years old. My cats learned to adjust to our additions to the family. My daughter loves playing with Mothball, Nibbler is very shy around humans. Currently, I'm attending school at Rasmussen University, working towards a degree in Health Information Technology. I worked for a non-profit Cat Shelter in California for 6 years. While I worked there I had various duties to perform. I assisted in cleaning kennels daily. I also provided sub-q fluids and medication for the...

What is your experience with cat sitting, and how long have you been doing it?

I've been with Meowtel for a couple of years, but I've had cats all my life. I also worked at a cat shelter for 6 years as a vet tech assistant.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

I get to build new relationships with other furry friends, aside from my own at home.

Can you tell us about your favorite cat sitting reservation?

One of my regulars hired me because one of their cats loves human companionship, when they are away I strive to be sure this cat gets as much time in as possible with me. When you pick them up they instantly purr and nozzles their face in your neck and under your ear.

Shishona is absolutely wonderful! We have used her multiple times and she has never disappointed. She goes above and beyond not only to take care of our cats, but to keep us informed and let us know they are doing okay. She genuinely cares and knows how important our cats are to us. She shows them lots of love and affection which helps us feel better about being away from home. With Shishona we never have to worry, we know our cats will be well cared for. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Shishona is the absolute best!!!

Shishona is amazing! We were out of town for two weeks, and she took excellent care of our cats. We were very nervous, as this was our first time leaving them alone, but she put us immediately at ease. She is kind, responsible, and responsive. She sent us multiple pictures and vidoes everyday, and would let us know how they were doing. She absolutely goes above and beyond and we had such peace of mind knowing our cats were in such good hands. We absolutely plan on using her in the future and cannot recommend her highly enough! She's the best!!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $29.00. 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.
