A cat sitter in Quincy, MA
I'm Debbie | Cat Sitting in , MA
Hi my name is Debbie, I'm in my 40s, and have been married for 24 years. We have a five-year-old cat named Noodles and a four-year-old dog named Ferdinand, and they are our babies!

I love getting to know cats and learning about their individual preferences. Of course, nothing feels better than that moment when they trust you and show affection. It's magical. I had a semi-feral cat that took seven months to win over, but it was SO worth it! But I also know that it doesn't necessarily happen with all cats, and that is absolutely fine. It's important that the cat is comfortable in their home, not that I feel loved! For example, if a cat is showing signs of needing alone time, I quietly sit in the room with them so they know I'm there if they change their mind, but I don't force myself on them. If they hide; I let them hide, as they are saying very clearly that they don't trust me yet. But if they come out to say hello, I take it slowly and follow their...
