Meow! I am Tanya, a cat sitter in Cambridge, MA

I have been around cats for a lot of my adult life and I understand fully that every cat has their own unique personality and they basically own you (and that is what we love about them!). I adore their individuality and different temperaments. I will cater to the specific emotional needs of your cat (or cats), using my intuition and calm demeanor. As an example, I recognize that some cats are skittish when they are in the presence of someone new and unfamiliar. I will carefully and lovingly meet them with that in mind. In regards to this aspect of a cat's personality, I believe in consent. I let them get to know me on their terms. I have found that tending to their basic needs (like food and cleaning their litter box), helps with their skittishness. I begin to slowly build trust, and they realize that I care for them, which helps them to feel safe in my presence.

I have lived with many kitties and also fostered a tortoiseshell kitty for about 10 months. I found this stray which I named Ruby, during one of those blustery and snowy Boston winters. At the time, it was living in a freezing hallway ...my heart went out to her, and I had to take her home, not knowing how long I would keep her. I gave her much love and pets, but after many months (after I had her spayed), I could tell she felt really cooped up in my small studio apt and was not happy. I put up an ad, and found the perfect forever home for her. A woman who was looking for another tortoiseshell kitty, and who had a really large apt. with lots of windows. As bittersweet as it was to let her go, I knew she was going to a wonderful place and would be loved and cared for.

As an aside, I am a professional photographer by trade and I also do temp work to fill in the gaps. Not having a regular 9-5 job, gives me flexibility in regards to visiting and taking care of kitties. I would be available late mornings, afternoons and evenings within the Cambridge area.

I look forward to playing, feeding and taking care of your beautiful kitty meows ^..^

I am fully vaccinated as of April, 2021 and in November, 2021, I had my booster shot as well. I will be wearing a mask at the Meet & Greet as a safety measure and to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible.
