I have been an insured, professional cat sitter since 2015, am a certified Fear Free handler and have a Dip.FBST in behavior science. I know how to provide exceptional care and behavior consultation for your cat with as little stress as possible.
From kittens to end of life care (including all meds and subcutaneous fluids), I will see to it your fur family get the same care I would want for mine.
I provide in home care for your cat, which means they remain in the comfort of their home which means less stress all around.

Whether for a day or a longer vacation, I will make sure the routine of your cat will remain the same, whether they need medication or lots of play, lap time or just need the basics (food, water & litter box). Toward the end of our visit, I will contact you with photos of your cat and update you as to how they are doing. I will also water plants, bring in mail, etc as needed
My rate for a 30 minute visit is $25. Overnights also available, please contact me for more information.

I have always had a love of cats, likely inspired by my Grandma. She had a farm in rural Minnesota and I'd visit every summer. One year, there was a litter of kittens and I really took to one of them, an orange & white girl who, because she opened her eyes first, I named Bloomer (because she was an early bloomer).
When I moved to NYC in 1997, my first cat as an adult came in the form of a rescue we named Xena. She had lived with some...rough...neighbors and kept visiting us to escape. We gladly took her in when we moved. I have had the pleasure of spending my life with several other cats since then and have dealt with just about every issue there is, from kidney failure to anemia to stomach cancer. It is never easy, but my husband and I gave them a lot of love until they decided it was their time.
My real passion for cat care started in 2015 when I formally became a professional "crazy cat lady" (aka sitter). I learned how to administer just about every medicine there is, from insulin to fluids to pills to liquid- even an inhaler! I also encountered all of the cat personalities and issues I am now working to be able to help with: aggression, shyness, litter box issues, introducing new family members. Basically, I am nuts about cats, so that's why I do what I do.
I am a volunteer with Anjellicle Cat Rescue who are a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue & adoption network. I believe every cat deserves to be loved and Anjellicle are how we found two of our boys, Burt & Billy.
I am passionate about FIV. We currently have two FIV and one non-FIV cats in our home. I have learned from experience the stigma the virus carries with it, and can say a lot of it is myth. Not one of our non-FIV cats, current or past, has ever developed the virus after many years of living together.
