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. Because 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...

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 😸Blind cats 😸Deaf cats 😸Anxious cats 😸Former strays 😸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 the best! Incredibly thorough, sends photos/videos every day, and always keeps us up to date on what our precious one has been up to. Can't recommend her enough!

I’ve used Jillian in the past, she always goes above and beyond, and this time was no different than the last. My older cat tore her ACL while I was out of the country and Jillian was very responsive, attentive, caring, and beyond helpful with caring for her, calling the ER vet, sending lots of videos, trying to figure out the source of her limp, and spending extra time with her to make sure she was comfortable. Being out of the country when something like this happens is extremely stressful and scary, but I trust Jillian with both of my kitties and she helped me feel more relaxed knowing she was in good care. Thank you Jillian!

We couldn’t be happier with the wonderful care that Jillian gave our cat while we were out of town. We had never had a professional cat sitter before, and were initially nervous about leaving our cat and home in the hands of a complete stranger. Jillian put our fears to rest immediately. At our meet and greet visit, it was obvious that Jillian has a natural affinity for cats. Her kind and gentle manner instantly put our timid cat at ease. Jillian asked lots of questions to better understand our cat’s needs while we were away. Very conscientious with meticulous attention to detail. Jillian’s communication was excellent…she gave us a detailed report after each home visit, and responded promptly to any questions. Jillian went the extra mile in so many ways…giving our cat extra attention, playing calming classical music on TV, watering plants, turning on lights as needed, and leaving our home spotless with no mess to clean up on our return! We were so impressed with Jillian’s professionalism and dedicated care of our cat. We highly recommend Jillian as a cat sitter, and couldn’t be happier with how everything worked out. Choose Jillian to look after your cat…you won’t be disappointed!

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 $31.00. 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.
