Meow! I am Dena, a cat sitter in San Antonio, TX

I am a retired, dependable cat lady with plenty of time on my hands to take care of your precious feline(s).

*** I DO NOT charge extra for holidays. ***

I grew up in the country, on a farm, at the end of a dead-end road, ten miles from any town. My childhood was idyllic and included interaction with many types of animals — cows, pigs, chickens, dogs, and of course, cats. My grandfather, who had a dairy farm, always had plenty of “barn cats” that were semi-feral (but we always played with them) in order to control rodents on the farm. I am probably one of a few people who can say that I watched my grandfather milk the cows and aim the udder on the ground so that some of the fresh milk went to the barn cats —and they would lap it up and love it.

I eventually left the farm and went to college in the southwestern part of Arkansas and, of course, I couldn’t have any cats while living the dorm. But I moved to Ohio after college and adopted my first rescue cat which I leash trained and totally loved forever. In my adult life, I have had several long-lasting cat relationships and I’ve loved every one of them.

My current furry friend is Princess, whom I adopted from the Humane Society about 9 years ago. She has deformed feet and cannot retract her claws and the person at the Humane Society said that no one wanted her because of that, which meant I had to take her home immediately. She is a wonderful best friend and we love each other dearly, even though she often claws me (but doesn’t mean to) because of her handicap.

My professional life has involved working 22 years for The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!) in a variety of higher education administration positions. I have always loved interacting with students and faculty and people from all over the world. When I turned 50, I got tired of the cold, snow, and ice and decided to move south to San Antonio. I soon went to work for the University of Texas and San Antonio and loved every minute of it. I was the department senior administrator in Modern Languages and Literatures and it was wonderful being around all of the international people there. I retired December 2020 and decided to spend the rest of my life traveling but sadly, covid put a damper on that.

In addition to my day job, I was always active in my community and have always felt a responsibility to give back. I volunteered for Big Brother/Big Sisters and organized Christmas gifts for adopted families. I worked on multiple political campaigns, everything from distributing fliers door to door to managing campaigns to organizing campaign events.

My hobbies include playing the piano, painting and drawing, Victorian-style crazy quilting, embroidery, sewing, beading, and various other arts and crafts.

Now that I am retired, I am thrilled to be a cat sitter with Meowtel. I treat my cat like a princess…..thus her name….and I will be happy to help you with your feline friends.

I have been fully vaccinated for Covid and am happy to wear a mask if you feel it is necessary. I also always carry hand sanitizer with me and use it liberally.
