Meow! I am Hiromi, a cat sitter in San Francisco, CA

Happy 2023!

Thank you so much for your interest in my services.

My name is Hiromi and cat sitting is my 2nd job, my primary job ("day job") is in managing clinical research trials in cancer research. I primarily do my sits in the early to mid morning and/or early to late evenings and I have a very limited sitting area (see below)

I recently had major LEFT shoulder (rotator cuff) and bicep repair surgery in Sep 2022. Rehab is going very well, but I still cannot lift anything weighing more than 10 pounds using my LEFT arm/side.

I have a passion for cats (care and photography). I am an experienced cat owner of over 20 years and have been lovingly cared for by multiple cats along the way. I am currently owned by a sassy mini Panther named, Beyoncé (pictured here).

I do NOT own a car. I make all visits by foot or public transit. Therefore, I may decline reservations if I cannot fit them into a very efficient route with other reservations. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

My service area is limited to SF and these specific areas:

-Castro
-Hayes Valley
-Civic Center/Mid-market (between 9-11th streets)
-Nob Hill
-Pacific Heights (Lower & Upper)

I sometimes consider Marina, Mission and Rincon Hill with ADVANCED notification and if it fits into my established client schedule (those who book early determine my route). I recently updated my service areas because I am unable to accept any new clients in Rincon Hill and North Beach vicinity. (Established clients can message me)

I do NOT service:
-areas outside of SF
-Balboa Park
-Bayview
-Bernal Heights
-Excelsior
-Glen Park
-The Haight
-Laurel Heights
-Noe Valley
-North Beach
-Panhandle
-Portrero Hill
-Richmond
-Rincon Hill
-Sunset

My educational background is in Animal Science and I have worked as a small companion animal veterinary assistant (in North Carolina), a large animal care-giver in farm animal management, and an animal care/kennel manager for retail. I also have had great volunteer experiences with cats. I am familiar with administering oral and sub-cutaneous meds, insulin injections and asthma inhalers. I also have worked with senior animals and cared for cats with end stage renal disease. I am happy to chat with you about my background, provide references or such, in order to make you feel comfortable with my services.

I was raised in a Japanese style home, so I will take off my shoes in your house and I respect ALL property.

I appreciate communicative and flexible cat parents with detailed instructions. In return, I will provide detailed updates, photos and/or videos while your cats are under my care. I am human, but honest, and if I make mistakes or have questions, I will clearly communicate with you and hope that you can troubleshoot issues with you.

I look forward to entertaining and caring for your cats while you are away.

Please see my schedule constraints, as this is just a side job for me for extra money, stress relief, exercise and a creative outlet for my amateur cat photography and cat enthusiasm.

THANK YOU for your understanding!
