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

Hello! My name is Melrose. I currently work in tech, and have been a long-time cat-lover. Cats intrigue me because each has their own unique personality and associated quirks. While it's hard not to love friendly cats, I also appreciate how it can take time to build genuine relationships of trust with more reserved kitties.

Over the past 7+ years, I have looked after cats on occasion for friends and colleagues (ranging from weekend visits to cat-sitting for 2+ weeks). During these times, I've navigated tricky situations such as looking after 2 cats + a large dog simultaneously as well as ensuring that an older cat received his medicinal thyroid ointment twice per day. Some of the folks I've cat-sat for have even asked for multiple 'sits' and/or recommended me to their friends.

Due to my day job, the best times for me to stop by include early mornings and late afternoons or evenings. I am also happy to do overnight stays and look after your home on along with your feline friend(s).

Note: in light of safety precautions due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, I will be wearing a mask during meet & greets, although I am fully vaccinated and boosted through Pfizer.

I hope you'll consider reaching out!
