Meow! I am Rebecca, a cat sitter in Chicago, IL

As a life-long animal lover, I have always seen my pets as part of my family - and I will treat your cat just like I treat my own! Not only am I compassionate toward animals and a cat parent to two wonderful cats myself, but I also have an extensive professional history in the animal services field; this combination of traits and skills is apparent in the quality of services I provide.

Professionally, I have over 15 years of experience in various areas of pet care. In my career of working in the animal welfare field, I have gained relevant and valuable knowledge that allows me to go above and beyond when caring for your pet. My extensive experience includes working at pet boarding facilities and daycares, animal shelters and rescues, and veterinary hospitals and rehabilitation centers in different areas of the United States. At one of the shelters I worked at, I specialized in cat adoptions. I also started and managed a cat committee at a shelter I volunteered at. I have worked with thousands of cats over my career and have seen all types of medical, behavioral, and other needs cats have. I am able to administer medications, well-trained in recognizing behavior signals, and knowledgeable regarding breed specificities.

My qualifications include that I am a Certified Dog Obedience Instructor through Animal Behavior College with special classes taken in Cat Training. I am also formally trained in pet CPR and first aid. Besides being a professional in animal welfare, I previously held a career as a social worker specializing in animal-assisted therapy and emotional support animals. I love helping and caring for both animals and people!

I care for your cat per the instructions you provide me - plus I offer them my own TLC to make sure they feel comfortable and you have peace of mind that they are always safe, well-cared-for, and happy. When I am permitted access your home to care for your beloved cat, I am always as respectful and careful as possible of your belongings and I make sure to leave your space just as it was when I entered!

Although I have previously had all kinds of pets of my own from hamsters to dogs, I currently have three: a beautiful and super friendly all-black senior domestic longhair named Tabitha I adopted from an animal shelter in Arizona who absolutely loves cuddle time, a handsome and very playful grey-and-white adult Maine Coon-mix named Skylar who I found as a solo stray in Chicago, and an adorable and silly adult Senegal parrot named Nora who loves to dance. My parrot and my cats coexist fabulously. These three are my fur and feathered babies, so I understand how important our pets are to us!

Please let me know if you have any questions about my pet care experience and currently offered services! I am looking forward to meeting you and your cat (or cats)!
