Meow, I am Barbara!
** My calendar is currently closed through mid-June due to the COVID-19 crisis. Please message me if you are in need of an emergency sitter and I will certainly try to accommodate. Stay home and stay healthy! **

Hello New Clients! Please message me by clicking on the "Ask a Question" button before sending a reservation request! This way we can chat and ensure that I'm able to accommodate you and your cats' needs.

About Me: I have 15+ years of animal husbandry experience. I currently work full-time in veterinary medicine for OHSU. I have a ton of background in 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 started cat sitting because I enjoy it! I love cats and I don't have one of my own right now (I have a very needy and spoiled dog).

I do have a full-time job and therefore I prefer not to commit to more than one client at a time. This is the best way for me to make sure your pet is getting the absolute best care. For this reason you may see limited availability on my calendar. If the date you want isn't available, please message me as I may be able to work something out for you.

Visit times: I am not able to be very flexible on morning visit times during work days.
Morning visits (on my work days) must be done at~6:30am
Once per day visits are typically ~4:30pm (unless otherwise specified)
Twice per day visits are typically between ~6-8am & then again between~6-8pm

I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your cat(s)!!
