Meow! I am Marissa, a cat sitter in Portland, OR

My name is Marissa. I thrive on caring for and connecting with animals. I’ve owned several cats throughout my life and have gained a great deal of knowledge of cat behavior over the years. In addition to tending to a cat's basic needs like daily litter box cleaning, providing a stimulating environment is important for a cat's wellbeing. A well enriched cat is a happy cat! I am also comfortable administering various medications if needed. I’ve volunteered with dog rescues and have provided pet care for friends and family. I’ve also ridden horses since a young age. Your cat will be in good hands with me!

I work full time as a Research Assistant at OHSU. I have a background in psychology and biology from UC Davis and would like to eventually pursue a graduate degree in Animal Behavior. My work hours are Monday through Friday 7-4, so will have open availability outside those hours. I'd prefer to do once a day visits Mon-Fri and can do twice a day visits on Sat-Sun, but please reach out if you have any special scheduling requests. I am happy to provide daily photo updates and answer any questions you might have while you are away. Looking forward to meeting you and your kitties!

COVID UPDATE:
I am fully vaccinated. During this time, I will be available for in-person meet and greets. We can also set up a virtual meet and greet if you prefer. During your reservation, I will wash my hands upon arrival and can wear a face covering upon request. Cuddles and playtime with the kitties will resume as usual :)
