Meow! I am Rin, a cat sitter in Portland, OR

Hi! I’m a lifetime cat lover who has owned a few cats and fostered a plethora of them as an adult. As a child, my family always had cats, along with a few found litters over the years. I currently have two wonderful cats - Podcast is a black and white three-legged wonder, and Oslo is a chatty, engaging lynx point.

I am best utilized caring for senior cats, those with special needs, or cats that need medications or fluids. I am a veterinary technician with nearly 20 years of experience, mostly in ER, Urgent Care, and some time in general practice. Therefore, I am very aware of behavior changes and other minor signs of stress and illness, and I can give medications, including injectable. I am comfortable giving sub-cutaneous fluids, cleaning and maintaining esophageal feeding tubes, etc. I often catsit for veterinarians that I work with in my primary job.

I am trained in fear-free handling of cats, and my calm and relaxed demeanor appeals to sensitive kitties. I am often chosen as the “cat whisperer” when an upset kitty comes into the hospital where I am employed.

I have rescued and rehomed many cats who needed surgery and recovery. I’ve had 5 amputee cats and one that needed an eye enucleation that I’ve rehabilitated and placed in loving homes after recovering from surgery!

I currently reside in NE Portland near the intersection Sandy and Fremont, but I have a reliable vehicle and am willing to care for kitties in most of the Portland Metro area.
