Meow! I am Barbara, a Cat sitter in Portland, OR

** Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meet & greets may need to be done virtually, and other adjustments may be made depending on the situation.

Please message me prior to sending a reservation request so we can make sure I can meet your expectations!!

I'm available: M-F 5pm-10pm, Sa-Su 8am-10pm, holidays 11am-4pm.

I generally do my visits in the evenings. I start each visit by greeting your cat(s) and making sure they are healthy and happy. I then run through whatever normal tasks you've asked me to complete: feeding, watering, and litter scooping. Afterwards, I'll start whatever additional tasks you've asked for: checking the mail, watering plants, feeding the fish. Whatever time is leftover after all the tasks are complete I will spend petting, cuddling and playing with your cat(s). Some cats don't want to play or are shy, so I may just sit in the room and talk to them. I never push your cat to do more than they are comfortable with because I think it's important that they stay stress free while you're away! I let your cat decide how much or how little they want to interact.

I have over 15 years of animal husbandry experience, including 6 years working in veterinary medicine for OHSU. I have a ton of background in the behavior and health requirements of cats and I'm comfortable administering medications if necessary... but mostly I just want to cuddle with your cat for a while! I love cats and I started cat sitting as more of a hobby than anything else; I truly just enjoy doing it! I have a kitty of my own named Spud, and I also have a big, slobbery, spoiled dog named Axel.

I have a full-time job, and I do cat sitting for fun on the side. Therefore, I do not like to commit to more than one client at a time. This is the best way for me to make sure your cat is getting the absolute best care. Because of this, you may see limited availability on my calendar. If the date you need doesn't appear available, please just message me. I may be able to work something out for you!
