Meow! I am Liz, a cat sitter in Berkeley, CA

Hello! My name is Liz Michaud. I am a professional psychotherapist, experienced cat sitter, and life-long cat lover :)

I am extremely trustworthy, responsible, caring, and experienced with cats. I have a background in the arts, and began my career in counseling in 2011. My job as a therapist requires me to be mindful, caring and trustworthy, and I bring those qualities to caregiving for the animals in my life too. I have established cat-sitting relationships with friends in the Bay Area, and I am happy to be of service to your cats, too :)

I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19. When in your home caring for your pets, I will be wearing a mask and will practice great hygiene to make sure that you and your loved ones remain safe.

For the first 20 years of my life, I always had multiple cats in the home that I grew up in. My family and I saw them through the good times of playfulness and cuddles, as well as the hard times of cat medical issues. This forever solidified my love for cats and equipped me with the awareness of the kinds of care that they need.

In 2007, after moving out of NY and into the SF Bay Area, I lived in small apartments which weren't ideal for having my own cats. So, to make sure I was still getting a hearty dose of cat-love in my life, I made myself useful to friends and acquaintances as a cat / dog sitter. It was then that I was first named "Aunt Liz!"

Since then, I have completed many cat-sitting jobs from long-term, live-in arrangements for many months at a time, to drop-in cat care, and everything in between.

I have had experience caring for many different kinds of cats: young, old, tabbys, tortoise-shells, long hair, short hair, Bengal and more. I have cat-owning family members who own specialty cat breeds Sphinx and Devon Rex. My relationship with them over the years has educated me about the unique behavioral and physical needs that caregivers should be aware of for these special cats.

I am familiar with different medication needs that cats sometimes require, and have no problem administering pills, drops and topical ointments. It rarely happens, but in the event that an animal in my care requires immediate medical attention, I bring them to the vet.

Most importantly, I love them! I enjoy taking care of them, and spending time with cats takes care of me, too :)
