Meow! I am Caryn, a Cat sitter in Chicago, IL

In 1997 I traveled to Mexico and returned to Chicago with an orange and white kitten with Dumbo-sized ears. Felines have been central to my life ever since.

With the addition of a fourth cat this year, our home is an "urban cattery." That's still not enough cat for me! I also volunteer at Tree House Humane Society (exclusively for cats) as a clinic assistant. I am *not* a vet tech, but have extensive experience administering injections, pilling, eye drops / ointments and giving subcutaneous fluids.

I have fostered countless kitties and adopted many along the way. I have cared for one day-old kittens through seniors 20+ years old; healthy cats fueled with "Red Bull" and the chronically ill; social butterflies and under-the-bed dwellers, and everything in-between. Let's just say there will be a big reunion party when I eventually stop off at the Rainbow Bridge.

I love learning how to communicate with each cat I meet, and getting that slow blink makes my day!

I am a writer and have a flexible schedule. Generally I limit travel to a 3-mile radius (but can make exceptions).

I look forward to meeting you and to caring for your magnificent, beautiful babies!
