Meow! I am Elaine, a cat sitter in Dallas, TX

Thanks for considering me. I love animals, especially cats. I've had my own cats for 17 years, including a geriatric 17+ year old (Avi, RIP), who needed twice-daily pills (thyroid condition) and bi-weekly sub-cutaneous fluids for CKD.

I am a retired lawyer and major cat lover with many years of experience with cats, from newborns to geriatrics. I am comfortable with playful kittens (but who doesn't love those?!), shy adults, sick seniors, and everything in between.

I have administered deworming liquid, transdermal meds, insulin, lime sulfur dips, eye drops, etc to foster cats. My varied foster experiences means that I can recognize a sick or injured cat quickly, and ensure they get the correct treatment.

I have been a foster for cat rescue groups and a DAS (Dallas Animal Services) volunteer for years. I have fostered about 50 cats and kittens by now, from bottle babies to terrified adults. You can check my foster kitten social media presence at Lassiecats on FB and IG.

I am new to Meowtel but have been a housesitter with Trusted Housesitters since 2021. To date, I've done 7 sits with all 5-star reviews. Some of these reviews are below.

****
"Elaine took amazing care of Coco and Kiki and our apartment. We received daily updates inclusive of pictures in which it was clear our girls were very happy with Elaine. Elaine was an excellent communicator throughout the entire process and left our apartment extremely tidy.
We can’t recommend Elaine enough and hope we get a chance to have her sit for us again."

"Elaine was a pleasure to have in my home with my cat. She was communicative and reliable. I appreciated the daily pics of my cat enjoying a good brushing, and lounging on the porch. When a cold snap came through, she was thoughtful about caring for my plants and home. I would welcome Elaine back anytime!"

I have had multiple background checks completed over the years. Most recently, I was approved to work with foster children as a CASA volunteer. I also volunteer as an usher at ATTPAC in Dallas.

I have been a home owner (3 houses) since 1999, with all the general maintenance that this involves. I'm clean and tidy, and only slightly obsessed with vacuuming!

As a frequent runner and cyclist, I am fit and able-bodied, so have no problems going up stairs or crawling on the floor to bond with cats!

Fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID (practically perforated now after 5 shots!)
