Cat Sitting

Sparky Steps Cat Sitting Service

Based in Chicago

We are Chicago Dog Walkers and Cat Sitters who care about safety, love, professionalism and timeliness.


Sparky Steps was founded in 2016 with a mission to spend our days taking care of your beloved pets and to encourage people to volunteer to help and adopt shelter animals!

Our Name

Our company is named after the founder’s dog Sparky to keep his legacy going. He sparked so much joy into our lives that we decided to dedicate our lives to animals.

We Know Your Needs

We know what you are looking for in a pet sitter and our aim is to fulfill your needs to the max! We assign two pet sitters to your pet(s) that you will meet in person before anyone has access to your keys.

We utilize DoTimely for all our Pet Care Scheduling Needs. IOS and Android apps ready. You can schedule appointments, manage pet profiles, view service reports and invoices right from your phone!

We create peace of mind with the photos, notes and GPS tracking. Each visit we take three photos: 1 to start the visit, 1 during the walk, and 1 to end the visit. We leave a comment with each visit to keep you updated. We use GPS tracking to track where we have been. After every walk you get a confirmation email with all this information to let you know how everything went.

Strong communication is what we aim to deliver, and this app allows us to deliver on that promise.
