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

Hey there!

My name is Marissa (she/her) and I am a super cat fan!

My Background
I have owned and loved kitties for many years. I am currently without a permanent kitty resident and have been spending my time fostering kittens with the Oregon Humane Society.
I have pet sat over the years, worked in cat and dog boarding, and spent time in various positions within the veterinary field.
My last kitty, a 17-year-old orange tabby named Ceasar, passed about a year ago and I am not quite ready to bring someone else home, so here I am with lots of love and pets to spare!

My Cat Sitting Style
I work remotely, typically from home, and would love to spend time hanging out with kitties who aren't used to being alone or who would benefit from an overnight sitter. While staying with your kitty overnight we can spend mealtimes together, and cuddle at bedtime. During the day they can sit with me during meetings, and get lots of attention and love in the comfort of their own home!
If you also work from home and are worried about not having someone around during the day to spend time with your cats while out of town, I am here to take your place while you are away! Since I am able to limit my external obligations while cat sitting, this gives me lots of opportunity to spend time with your cats and focus on them and their care.

The Benefit of In-Home Cat Sitting
For cats who need some extra care or medical attention, having someone around so often can offer a real sense of relief while you are out of town. Since my style of cat sitting includes lots of time with them, I am able to really get a sense of how they are doing. Also, spending so much time with your kitty means lots of chances to send you photos and updates!

An Example of My Day & Night with Your Kitties
- Kitty and I wake up and eat breakfast together and a short photo shoot ensues
- They sit with me during my morning meetings and provide important business feedback
- My work breaks throughout the day include toy tossing and treats
- At lunch, we share some turkey slices and they ask me to send you a message about it
- I wrap up the day around 5 pm and we wind down with a Netflix series
- We have dinner together and talk about our day
- We spend the evening time cuddling and letting you know how everything is going
- We do it again tomorrow! Or if it's a weekend, no work to distract us from our feline duties!

My Location
I live in NE Portland and am happy to travel! If you live outside my current radius please feel free to reach out! If our schedules align I would be glad to come your way.

House Care
In addition to lavishing your cat with as many cuddles and kisses as they will allow, I am glad to tend to your other household needs like mail collection and plant watering during my stay.

Medications and Health Concerns
I have experience administering oral, eye, and ear medications, and I am comfortable performing injections and giving fluids as needed. With my history of working in various veterinary positions in emergency and specialty medicine, I feel confident catching feline emergencies or ailments and responding to them quickly.

COVID Safety
I am vaccinated and boosted and am happy to offer initial Meet & Greets masked and in-person or virtually.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you!
Marissa šŸ¾
