I'm Jillian | Cat Sitting in Eden Prairie, MN

Hello, I'm Jillian, and I'm here to provide you with peace of mind and give your kitties the best staycation while you're away.💖 😺MY APPROACH TO CAT CARE As a Fear Free® Certified Pet Sitter, I practice a compassionate and holistic approach to cat care. I specialize in understanding cats' emotions and behaviors to offer exceptional, cat-centric care tailored to your cat's individual needs. I am trained in effective Fear Free strategies to ensure your cat not only gets lots of love, but also experiences comfort, safety, and a stress-free environment. Cats are people too.💓 😺A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME Cats have held a special place in my heart ever since I got my first cat Charlie for Christmas when I was 6. Since then, I can't imagine my life without cats. It's my dream to visit every cat cafe in the US (I've been to 16 so far). Most recently, I've been privileged to share my life with two incredible rescue cats- Nomi and Mittens. Nomi is the lover, and Mittens is the sassy one. Their distinct personalities taught me the value of adapting my care to meet each cat's needs. When you entrust your cat's care to me, rest assured I'll respect their uniqueness to provide them with personalized care. Watching a cat make biscuits, do a big stretch, or show their toe beans seriously makes my whole day, and I would be honored to see your kitty's biscuit-making skills. I'm here to pamper all the cats, including yours! 😻 😺MY EXPERIENCE I have 3 years of cat sitting experience and worked directly with cats as a volunteer with a cat rescue for the last 10 years. I have worked with a cat behaviorist/trainer to learn positive training and enrichment methods, and am currently learning a little about supporting cats' energies from a skilled medical int...

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

I have been cat sitting for 3 years now. I have cared for: 😸Kittens 😸Elderly cats that require very gentle care 😸Anxious cats 😸Former stray cats 😸Extroverted cats 😸Brothers and Sisters And more! I'm comfortable with all kinds of cats and have had wonderful experiences getting anxious and shy cats to warm up to me- cats whose parents who couldn't believe I got their cat to come out from under the bed and even play with me while I'm there.

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

For me, spending time with cats is my greatest joy in life. It fills my heart to see a cat come out of their shell, to chase a toy, to nap in a sunbeam, or to purr with delight when I pet them. When it comes to cat sitting, I am grateful to be able to take care of your cat and keep them company while you're gone. While I could never replace their favorite human (that's you!😻), I am so happy knowing your cat has someone to love them while you're away (that's me😊) and making sure they not only get their basic needs taken care of, but also lots of love and reassurance that they are not alone.

What is your typical process for working with a new cat parent?

1. I am happy to answer any questions before you make a reservation request. 2. After confirming your request, I'll message you to setup a meet & greet. This is where you, your cat and I will get to know each other better, share care instructions, provide me with a key to your home if one is needed, and help you decide if I'm a good fit for you and your cat. 3. I'll send you a list of some more detailed questions about your cat's favorite rewards, likes and dislikes, which will help me formulate a greeting plan for the meet and greet to help your cat feel as comfortable as possible.

Jillian is just the best. Our cat is not easy to hang out with. She’s extremely suspicious and takes time to adjust. But Jillian makes maximum effort everyday, regardless of how she behaves. I can’t imagine anyone else taking care of our cat

Jillian was absolutely incredible. Our cat is very shy, but he came out to greet her in just a few minutes. After a few days, they were the best of friends. Jillian took excellent care of him, and provided greet updates every day.

My kitties had another amazing “staycation”! With Jillian caring for my kitties I am worry-free. She sends photos and videos of the cats’ daily antics that make my day and show me they are having a great time. Jillian is the absolute best.

Response from Jillian on Jun 6, 2024 "It was wonderful doing overnight visits with the kitties this time. It allowed me to accelerated Zoey's comfort level with me, and gave the people-loving Cece and Alby the extra attention they love so much. Until next time Lisa!😸✨"

Jillian went beyond what was expected. Great photos and videos and more importantly, Freddy seemed to really like her. I think he was waiting for her again this morning. Our highest recommendation.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $28.00. 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.
