Meow! I am Mary, a cat sitter in Chicago, IL

I have loved cats all my life and, until recent years, had always lived with at least one for as long as I could remember. My family has five cats currently, but I don’t have any because I now live with a partner who has a cat allergy. Not having a cat at home anymore makes cat sitting even more exciting for me because I to get to enjoy some of the feline company I miss!

In high school, I used to volunteer at an animal shelter. In college, I was a regular pet-sitter and house-sitter for a family with three dogs, two cats, and a few goats. I also pet sit around my neighborhood here in Chicago. I’m located in Hyde Park/Kenwood and would love to sit for cats in the area! I can also travel around Chicago if you’re not in Hyde Park. Part of what I like about pet sitting is that it gives me opportunities to see all different parts of the city!

I know what it’s like to constantly worry about your pets while you’re away, and completely understand how nerve-racking it can be to leave them in the care of someone new. I’ll do everything I can to put your mind at ease while I care for your kitties. I send detailed updates, pictures, and videos during each visit (unless, of course, that’s not your preference!). And I’m happy to talk through any of your concerns at the meet and greet.

I understand that each cat has a unique personality, and they don’t all have the same comfort level with strangers, so I try to interact with pets on their terms and give them plenty of time to warm up to me. I treat your pets and your home the way I would want mine to be treated. In addition to taking care of your cats, I’m happy to do some other household tasks during my visits like bringing in your mail and watering plants.

I’m vaccinated and double-boosted and continue to be very cautious about COVID, and wear a KN95 mask at meet-and-greet visits.

Outside of cat-sitting, I work from home as a freelance editor. Since I arrange my own schedule for my job, my cat-sitting hours are very flexible! I’m available for both drop-ins and overnight stays. Send me a message and we can coordinate a time that works best for visits!
