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

I would love to meet your kitties and become your Trusted Cat Sitter option in the Portland, OR metro area. As a cat sitter, if there is a cat in the room, I will address them first. I always introduce myself with a hello and sweet words for them. I get down on the floor or at least in a sitting position and talk to them. I will let them come to me, whether it takes minutes, hours, or sometimes days or weeks and months. In other words, I let the kitties dictate the nature of the relationship on their terms. I respect their boundaries and am always prepared to be watching for what they are. They will tell you. You can count on coming back to well-cared-for kitties and a home that is in at least as good of a condition as you left it, but likely better. I intend on creating an experience that relieves as much anxiety for you and your pet/s as possible.

I currently have 2 cats, Jack and Puppy, and have had up to 4 at one time. Puppy Cat earned her name for her watchdog skills and a little bark-like squawk she uses when she talks to you. Jack is an immensely gregarious Tuxedo with a huge personality. He is highly communicative and intensely passionate. He adopted me last year and now has convinced me to leash train him so he can go outside to explore. You may see him riding in a carrier on my e-bike sometime next spring cruising around Portland and meeting people and their pets! Or maybe on the trails hiking Portland's amazing trails! I believe he would love to be with me wherever I go. I

I love cats and they love me! I talk to them like I would a person. When they answer, I continue the conversation with them with words, not meows. Well, sometimes meows or both. Cats love to be sweet-talked. I have rehabbed behaviors multiple times to where cats who were terrified of people have come to me on their own seeking pets and cuddles. I understand how cats communicate, can identify their wants and needs, and respond to meet them accordingly. I talk to cats out on the street, and sometimes they will come to me, and we will chat for a few minutes. I take pictures of random cats I encounter while they sit in windows or wander around. They're amazing creatures and a reliable barometer for identifying trustworthy people, in my opinion!

I am self-employed in business helping others with their foundational leadership needs, e-Commerce, House/Pet Sitting, and now with Meowtel! I enjoy learning and experiencing new things, drawing sketch art, riding my bike, hiking, traveling, fishing, and the mountains.
