I'm Leni | Cat Sitting in University Park, 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). My schedule allows me to dedicate evenings and weeke...

Leni's Reviews

This was a good experience. The person we picked was detail orientated and nice. We will definitely use your services again.

Leni is one of the most attentive, caring, wonderful people we have ever had the pleasure of coming to know. she sent us consistent updates about our boys and made sure that WE felt good before she left. She goes above and beyond and gave us a sense of security you just can’t put a price on.

Leni is the absolute best! She cares about my cats as if they were her own. She is very detailed with her responses and updates and I never have to wonder or worry when I am away. My only girl cat has now allowed Leni to touch her. Besides the vet, I have been the only human she comes near. This means a lot.

Leni is the perfect cat sitter. She listen very carefully, she is very loving and giving to my cat. Leni gives so much attention and loves to play with my cat. I couldn’t ask for a more wonderful person.

This is the second time we've had Leni take care of our cats, and she did a great job once again! I really appreciate knowing I have someone I can trust take care of my girls. I would definitely recommend Leni!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $34.00. 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.
