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

Hello feline Friends!

My name is Sofina and I’ve been a loving cat mama since as long as can remember. My family use to take in strays, they had this adorable story of how I named one of our cats ‘Gato’ because I was learning Spanish in school. It’s one of my favorite memories to share to this day! And now I’ve got my own pair of fluffy loves named Chester and Blazer(the dynamic duo).

My love and care for animals has brought me many experiences and opportunities starting with my own pets of course, to working at the Oregon Zoo, volunteering at the Humane society, and now working with cats on a regular basis. I have tons of experience handling cats wether they’re super friendly or more on the skiddish side. Having a family with multiple households and multiple cats I have conquered all kinds of kitty surprises, from the basic mess to actual emergencies. Which has led to me gaining extensive experience in administering oral/topical medications, as well as experience delivering insulin subcutaneously.

Chester was diagnosed with feline diabetes in august, 2020. We noticed he was losing weight(for an overweight cat that’s an easy sign to overlook), drinking tons of water, urinating in large quantities and wobbling as if his legs were weak. Symptoms which can be common signs even for humans. With our suspicions were confirmed, we underwent a complete diet adjustment, months of late nights, and countless insulin shots until he finally achieved remission as of mid December 17, 2020! With very little known about feline diabetes I very much had to figure out his care on my own. It was one of my scariest experiences as a cat mom(and in my life). Nothing prepares you to have to become your baby’s doctor. Especially during Covid, I felt completely thrown to the wolves. The veterinarians couldn’t even bring me inside for a live demo of the injection process. But I was determined; I found a forum for diabetic cat parents and they coached me all the way through until he was in remission. I am so grateful and now I couldn’t be more proud of what we overcame.

Aside from my personal life I’ve also had quite a bit of experience working with animals. From 2016-2020 I was a part of an internship program at the Oregon Zoo. I was trained to handle many kind of animals including snakes, turtles, lizard, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, insects, and we even has a few cats who were allowed to roam free on the inside. I’m no stranger to cleaning up droppings, carrier, pens, and litter boxes of course.

I have a very flexible schedule and am always willing to work with clients to find times that best suit both of our needs!

Update:
Covid safety is very important to me! I always mask during meet ups and for the entirety of my stay in a clients home(potentially with the exception of overnights).
I carry hand sanitizer with me at all times but prefer to wash my hands when I can of course. I am willing to make various accommodations in regards to covid.
