Meow! I am Amanda, a cat sitter in Oakland, CA

I don't know where I would be without cats. They have helped me manage my anxiety for the past 2 decades. We currently own 4! Scout is almost 13, Pickle & Pippa are almost 11, and young Succotash just turned 1. Pippa has medical needs so I have experience administering pills and liquid meds.

In the past we've fostered cats and kittens, both for rescues and neighborhood strays. I also started working for a local cat-sitting service this summer, but as that's wrapping up I'll be able to devote all of my time to Meowtel clients.

A bit more about me is that I'm a voracious reader and have had past lives as a bookseller and Children's Books Specialist/Buyer. I also love boardgames, TV, puzzles, gin cocktails, comic books, trying new restaurants, and traveling with my friends!

I'm currently available to cat-sit in the East Bay. I can take morning, afternoon or evening appointments any day of the week.

In addition to experience I'm certified in Dog & Cat CPR/First Aid, and I've taken a class in feline behavior from the Humane Society.

What you can expect from me is someone who wants to put your mind at ease while you're away from home. I know all too well how stressful it can be to arrange animal care.

I believe in letting the cat set the pace. We don't have to be friends if they're not up for it, but their needs will always be met. Something I like to do for my shy kitties is read them a story or two.

I also let you set the pace with regard to how much communication you would like. I will send updates and pics from each visit unless instructed otherwise.

When in contact with you or anyone else I will be wearing a mask. I've been vaccinated 3 times as of last week, and I also got vaccinated against the flu.

I can't wait to meet you and your cats!
