Meow, I am Johanna!
UPDATE: I am moving my location and becoming a roving Meowtel sitter! I will still be available for San Francisco clients, but my main center will be in Santa Cruz and my availability will be all along the Peninsula and East Bay between Santa Cruz and San Francisco. If you are looking for care north of Santa Cruz please contact me or Meowtel to plan the best care for your kitty.

First things first - a little about me! I'm a biologist with a Master's degree, and an enormous love of animals. I'm located in the center of the city and I'm available to work throughout the city. The outer Sunset, Richmond, and Ingleside can be a little more difficult for me to get to, but I'm willing to make it work if you've got a sweet kitty who needs some extra love. :)

As a sitter, I have some important skills I bring to the table. The first, and most important, is RESPECT. I understand both the importance of a bond between an owner and their cat, but also the trust involved in letting someone else into your space. I am skilled with medicating animals via liquid suspensions as well as pills, and have some experience with injectable medications. I'm also very good at reading cat body language, and know how to give your kitty the space and love that will best suit them. One of the services I'm very happy to provide is sending you pictures/videos of your kitties as we're playing or cuddling.

I LOVE cats!! That should be obvious, from my being here, but for my entire life I have been around cats. Growing up, we had a house full of cats who all lived well into their late teens, and I had the privilege of growing up with them. This includes all the difficult parts of it, too! Through college I took in strays and made sure they got de-flea'd, de-wormed, were up to date on vaccinations, and had their spay/neuter all taken care of before working with local shelters to find them suitable long-term homes. I met a lot of difficult cats through this, but I just learned about the amazing variety of personalities that make cats such amazing companion animals.

These days, I am the proud momma of two black kittens, siblings who were found abandoned in a parking lot and spent the rest of their lives in the shelters. Not a day goes by that I don't feel lucky to have them in my life. In my adult life, I worked at a volunteer at Kittea Cat Cafe, on the cat side, where I fed, watered, cleaned litterboxes and any messes, and ensured that all the cats were happy, healthy, and relaxed.

I look forward to hearing from you - and meeting your purrfect friends - soon!
