Meow, I am Ellen!
I have a long experience of caring for cats of all ages and ability. Each cat has their own personality and preferences, and I look forward to getting to know yours! A PhD student in the dissertation stage, I have wide availability, and a lifetime of living and caring for cats. I serve Shoreline, Lynnwood, Montlake Terrace, Edmonds, Lake City, Lake Forest Park, Northgate, and North Seattle. If your city is not listed, please message me to inquire- I am often able to travel elsewhere on request.

My home is a calm environment to retreat to after some activity. In the unlikely event of an emergency, I also live close to several standard and after-hour pet veterinary centers. I always have a variety of treats available, and will check with you to confirm dietary restrictions and approval. I can provide basic cleaning and grooming services (cleaning dirt, brushing, removing matting).

I am available for sitting at your home or boarding at my residence. To best meet your pet's needs and well-being, I host one pet at a time. This way, your buddy can have a comfortable experience at their home away from home. This can be a positive environment for shy cats.

I have lived in a household with cats all my life! I have been told I have a gift for drawing even the most reclusive cat out of their shell, and have experience taking care of kittens and senior cats, including providing restroom assistance, administering medicine, and stain-removing at a Mr. Clean-like level.

For more on me at a personal level: I love hiking, and I am an avid knitter and reader. I am completing my PhD in political science, focusing on Arctic politics and international cooperation. I love Nordic interior decor, sci fi (Stargate has a special place in my childhood), green tea, and sweater weather. Most of all, I look forward to taking care of the furry members of your family!

I encourage open communication. As a standard practice, I will send pictures and message check-ins two times a day for sitting (though I am happy toprovide more or alternative update formats upon request).
