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

If you ask any of my friends what my favorite thing in the world is, it’s cats! I have two of my own (orange is Rufio; gray is Wendy), and I can’t wait to meet your cat!

Note for the 2022 Holiday Season: I do have availability over Christmas, so please message me if you are interested in booking on or around Christmas!

I’ve had cats my whole life, starting right when I was born. Feeding the cats and emptying the litter box were my chores growing up, so I learned cat care early. I also learned cats can require a lot of patience and nurturing to warm up to you, or they may be warm from the get-go. I respect all cat’s levels of comfort with me and gauge how I act toward them based on their reactions.

I’ve been a volunteer with Chicago Animal Care & Control in transporting cats to their foster homes, rescues, and vet appointments. I have also fostered kittens and adult cats. Over the summer, I rescued 4 kittens from an abandoned parking lot: fed them to gain their trust, then arranged for a rescue to trap them and foster them. I then adopted one and arranged for my coworker, who lost her 2 cats within a year, to adopt two of them. Seeing her so happy with the kittens was so fulfilling.

I have also worked in pet insurance and am trained on how to bottle-feed kittens and administer medication.

I live on the northwest side of Chicago, but I don’t discriminate with where I sit. I am also a dog walker, and I have clients from Naperville, the Fox River, Crystal Lake, all neighborhoods in Chicago, and everywhere in between. Honestly, I do it because I love animals that much. I have a 9-5 in insurance that pays the bills, but it doesn’t really feed my soul like caring for cats does. I am very flexible with my date and times, as I can work from home at any time.

As far as COVID safety, I am fully vaccinated and boosted. I will do whatever you feel is safest for your home. If you would prefer me to wear a mask, I will!
