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

🚨Now Booking for the holidays! 🎄
💖My greatest joy and calling in life is to serve CATS!! 😻I’ve been cat sitting for friends and family for over 15 years, and am brand new to meowtel! I’ve lived with and cared for cats for over 30 years! Cats fill my heart to the brim!

I’d love to care for your sweet kitties while you’re away! I understand how hard it can be to leave them behind. I will love and cherish them as if they were my own, and send daily recaps along with photos and videos! 📸🐈

I offer cat sitting on the east side of Portland. During my drop-in (or overnight) visit, I will cater to your cats needs. I’m very skilled at reading their body language and understanding what they need. Maybe it’s lots of cuddles, play time, or just quietly talking to them. Shy and skittish cats tend to feel at ease with me and my quiet and gentle demeanor. I can administer oral meds, topical creams and flea medications. I also have some experience with injections and subcutaneous fluids, but would prefer to have a practice run with you at our meet and greet if that’s needed. I am highly detail oriented (Virgo here!), and take notes during our meet and greet noting all of your specifications.

I will refresh water and feed them, as well as daily cleaning of the litter box. I will closely monitor their food intake, and keep an eye on the treasures they leave in their litter box, to be sure all looks "normal". I am more than just a drop-in sitter - these kitties all become part of my extended family!

I volunteer weekly at a local shelter as a socializer, where I spend time with cats of all temperaments. I consider this my weekly kitty therapy.. It brings me so much joy to be around these sweet souls.

I am currently owned by a deaf adventure cat named Rumi, who loves car rides, chasing waterfalls, and going on hikes with me. (He's the big white floofy guy in my banner, and all other kitties are from the shelter I volunteer at!) I adopted him as a kitten from Cat Adoption Team. He prefers to be an only cat, so that's where you come in! Thanks for helping me get my kitty fix!!

When I'm not caring for 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 available most days, nights, weekends and holidays. Available for drop-in and overnight visits. I am self employed as a Silversmith, so I can be very flexible with timing, to make sure we can keep your kitties schedule as close to normal as possible.

{{SERVICE AREA}} I am located in Rose City Park neighborhood, and prefer to stay within a 3 mile radius (N, NE Portland - Hollywood, Rose City Park, and Beaumont neighborhoods). If you're a little outside of this area, please still reach out, and I can let you know if that's feasible!

{{COVID INFO}} I am fully vaccinated. I am happy to wear a mask at our meet and greet and during my visits upon request.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a message!
I am LGBTQIA welcoming <3

Tell your cat I said hello!!
