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

Recently moved back to Portland from the Seattle area! I am a huge cat person and have had cats of my own my whole life. My current cats (Gatsby & Kaia) were rescues that I bottle-fed from around two weeks of age. My male cat, Gatsby, has had several health scares in the past (feline asthma, urethra obstruction) that have led me to become extra vigilant in my care for them and EXTREMELY appreciative of attention to detail previous cat sitters have shown. I know how stressful it is to have to leave your kitties under the care of someone else, and being able to help alleviate that motivated me to pursue cat sitting.

I have a little over a year’s worth of experience volunteering in the hospital wing of a wildlife care center and have volunteered abroad for animal rehabilitation purposes. I’m truly passionate about animal care, especially feline care since it is so close to home for me! In my free time when I’m not at home with my cats, I can generally be found outside on the trails or in the gym. I currently work as a rehab aide and part-time as a bartender.

I am fully vaccinated and take COVID precautions very seriously.

If you see that I am unavailable for a particular range of dates you are interested in, please message me. Depending on your location/needs I may be able to make exceptions. This is especially true for repeat clients!
