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

Hi there! I'm Ell, and I've always had the joy of cats in my life. :) I adopted my first kitten when I was 5, and she moved to two cities with me during the next 12 years. My family always had at least two cats while I was growing up, and I loved them all!

During my high school years we even fostered a mama (a feral rescue) and her five kittens. Of course, we ended up keeping two of them...classic foster story!

Now my household has a total of 3, all with BIG purrsonalities....Lotus is our bossy queen, Toad is our fluffy princess, and Pawblo is our bobtailed baby boy. I get to enjoy their presences and help when their mom and dad (my roomies) are out of town.

I've been a cat sitter for several years now, including for repeat families who asked me to return for their annual 3-week summer vacations. I'm also comfortable caring for houseplants and other little critters around the house!

I have experience with raw feeding, administering oral meds, and coaxing out shy cats. I would be happy to learn how to administer insulin and subcutaneous meds. I want your furbaby to be happy and healthy, whether that means playing with them or just keeping them company in their home.

During my 9-to-5 I work remotely for a nonprofit, so I can spend days at your place if your kitty is used to company or might get lonely. Outside of work, I'm very active and enjoy biking, hiking, and exploring the beautiful PNW.


Given the current conditions, I prefer overnight stays to minimize in-and-out exposure — although I'm still available for daily drop-ins for 20-90 minutes.

I'll be wearing a mask inside your house if I'm coming by for a short visit during the day, or a stay of fewer than 3 days. I'll also be cleaning high touch areas.

I ask that we do a virtual meet-and-greet *or* that you please wear a mask when we meet. I want to keep everybody healthy and safe! Can't wait to get to know you and your furbabes. :)

(And a final FYI...I don't ride public transit, but the option for "bike" isn't available on Meowtel.)
