I'm Michael | Cat Sitting in Urbana, IL

I grew up with cats and, other than a few years when I moved a bunch, I have always had cats as an adult. Currently, I am pet-mom to Esther, a 9 year old polydactyl cat who loves to play in boxes and chase her felt veggies. I have experience taking care of cats with many different temperaments (shy, active, feisty, anxious, playful, etc.). I have also provided care for pets needing medication and special diets. I have administered medications including pills, eye drops, ear drops, and ointments and have worked with some kitties who needed special strategies for medication administration (pills in food or a treat, distract wi...

This was my first experience with anything like Meowtel, and Michael eased any apprehension I had about leaving my 3 kitties by themselves. I got so many pictures of my babies, and each update felt personal and thoughtful. Michael also truly went above and beyond for us while we were gone for 4 days by bringing in our mail, adjusting our thermostat, and hauling up our trash cans that were at the curb. Thank you for making this so easy for us 😊

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 $25.00. 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.
