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

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆMeow! Iโ€™m Melanie! ๐Ÿ’–
My greatest joy and calling in life is to serve CATS!! ๐Ÿ˜ป

Hello Portland Cat lovers!! Youโ€™ve just stumbled upon the biggest cat lover in the entire universe!! ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ‘‹ (Itโ€™s true.. I hold the Guinness world record!๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฑ)

๐Ÿ’–I am deeply in tune with these feline souls, and almost every cat Iโ€™ve met has been drawn to me. My quiet & sensitive demeanor helps the shyest of shy kitties feel safe and comfortable ๐Ÿฅฐ

Iโ€™ve never lived WITHOUT cats! I grew up with them, volunteer weekly at a cat shelter, and sit professionally! (Ummmm HELLO dream โ€œjobโ€!) It would be an โœจHONORโœจ to care for your sweet babies while youโ€™re away!!

๐Ÿ“† I can tailor my arrival time to keep your kittieโ€™s routine as close to normal as possible!

๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ’‰ I have experience medicating cats, and some experience with administering subQ fluids.

โœจThorough updates after each visit, including adorable photos & videos!๐Ÿ“ธ

๐Ÿ’–Kitties will receive lots of love and attention, play time snuggles & pets, depending on your catโ€™s preference.

๐ŸŽถI will immediately give them an adorable nickname, and sing a jingle about it to them๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š

๐ŸˆClean & refill food bowls, ๐Ÿ’ฆfresh water, and make sure kitties donโ€™t order any take-out ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ”๐Ÿšซ

๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ’ŽScoop litter box(es) for buried treasure and kindly dispose ๐Ÿ™Š Sweep floor (Iโ€™ll include any concerning litter box issues ๐Ÿ’ฉ in my update!)

๐Ÿ™ I will respect your home and sweet fur babies as if they were my own!

I am owned by a 9 year old deaf adventure cat named Rumi. He demands daily car rides (his favorite thing in the entire world), being pushed around in his chariot (cat stroller), and being escorted to the forest to go waterfall chasing (really, he LOVES waterfalls!!) So you can see I love spoiling cats, and would love to spoil yours while youโ€™re away!!

Rumi doesnโ€™t allow me to have any other cats, so I get my weekly kitty fix at a local shelter, where I love on and socialize all of the kitties. Iโ€™ve also been a food and meds administrator for upwards of 20 cats at a time!

I work with cats of all ages and temperaments, and am highly skilled at reading their body language and understanding their behaviors. Shy and timid kitties tend to warm up quickly to my gentle and quiet demeanor.

Iโ€™ve been cat sitting for friends and family for over 15 years, and am brand new to meowtel! Iโ€™ve lived with and cared for cats for over 30 years! Cats fill my heart to the brim!

When I'm not loving on all the cats, you can find me wandering mossy forests, or out along the Oregon Coast. It's a dream to eventually become a traveling cat sitter! I am also a full time Silversmith.

Thanks for reading my cat novel! I look forward to hearing from you!

Tell your kitties I said psspspss!!
