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

I'm the person who spends the whole party sitting on the floor with the cat.

I currently own two kittens, Bear and Bean (named for the city of Chicago!), and have spent my entire life around cats. I know how scary it can be to leave your pets, so as a cat sitter my goal is to give you peace of mind so you can enjoy your trip and know your baby will be safe and sound when you return. I'm extremely diligent and thorough, so expect high-quality and very adorable photos of your cat and very detailed notes from my visits.

I have experience with many different types of cats: I grew up with two very large tom cats (8Y M) who are not the friendliest, I have my kittens who are the cuddliest little ladies you'll ever meet, and I've fostered extremely vocal and needy cats and a momma cat with a litter of five. I pride myself on knowing how to engage with cats - I can get even the shyest cat excited about a wand toy and out of their shell - but I always prioritize respecting their boundaries & making sure they're comfortable and happy. I know not all cats are cuddlers or a fan of pets, so I can provide the ideal experience for each cat.

In addition to my love of cats, I also love plants! So if you have any plant residents in addition to your feline ones, I'm happy to check on or water those as needed.

When I'm not pet-sitting, I love crafting, exploring Chicago, cooking, and eating. I currently work from home due to the pandemic so I'm able to spend long stretches of the day hanging out with your kitty. I'm vaccinated and am happy to wear a mask while checking on your pets and home.

I'm based in Chicago and am open to any neighborhoods in metro Chicago, including:
- Pilsen (and all of the Pink Line)
- The Loop/Downtown
- Lincoln Park/Lakeview/Wrigley
- Wicker Park/Logan Square (and all of the Blue Line)
