Meow! I am Margaret, a cat sitter in Los Angeles, CA

Hello, Pet Parents. I am Margaret, a long-time New Yorker who moved to Los Angeles in the fall of 2019, as well as a writer and editor. I am currently a cat mom to Wylie Coyote, an 11-year-old Maine coon, and a foster parent to brothers Bowie, Tupac, and Prince, who were rescued from the streets of LA as kittens (and are available for adoption). In Brooklyn, I did TNR (trap-neuter-return) of feral cats, and I ran a cat rescue and adoption group for kittens and friendly adults I found.

At the risk of stating the obvious, I believe cats are living art as well as spiritual gurus. We humans could all learn a lot by paying more attention to them and studying their ways.

The safety and happiness of animals in my care is my top priority. I have a calm, loving demeanor, and an intuition that guides me about each cat's needs. I believe in setting the right tone with a gentle approach to any new animal I meet.

From my decades of cat parenting and many years in cat rescue and trapping and feral kitten taming, I have amassed a wealth of experience. I can give meds orally, in the ears, in food, and subcutaneously. I can wrangle an ornery cat via the burrito method (wrapping in a towel) or the scruffing method. For most appointments, however, I am just happy to do whatever the cat wants, talking, playing, petting, or just hanging out nearby. I also know that some cats are super shy and I won't take it personally!

I live in Hollywood, so I prefer appointments there, West Hollywood, and the Hollywood Hills, but I am open to other areas. Let's talk about your needs!
