FAQs about our sitters

How are your sitters selected?

Every sitter at The Comforted Kitty is selected for their years of cat care experience, excellent customer service, and proven exceptional work ethic. Furthermore, we are proud to pay a living wage in order to attract and retain the best caregivers.

All of our partner cat sitters are screened and selected via a rigorous three-part interview process, an extensive reference check, and must pass a criminal background check too. Furthermore, they are covered under our commercial liability insurance and bonding policies.

Have questions? Shoot us an email (info@comfortedkitty.com) or call/text us (925-494-0485)

Will I get to meet my sitter beforehand?

Absolutely! In fact, we require an initial consultation / meet-and-greet with you as a new client so that the sitter can come to your home and interact with both you and your cat, to make sure there’s a good fit. It also is an opportunity for the cat sitter to familiarize themselves with the entire visit and care routine, retrieve your house keys, and ask you any questions they might have. It’s also appropriate in this meeting for either party to mention any concerns that might exist so that both you and your sitter are best prepared for the sittings. We assign the same sitter for your entire trip so that you will have met the person entering your home and not have someone new each visit.

How many sitters will be caring for my cat?

We believe it is very important for a sitter to develop a relationship with our human and feline clients. In fact, it’s really beneficial for all when the sitter is able to form a strong bond with your cat. Therefore, only your one assigned sitter (the person you meet at the initial consultation) will be entering your home to care for your cat. Unlike many other pet sitting companies and dog walking apps that are popular these days, you will always know ahead of time who is coming into your home and we won’t ever bring another person or animal into your home. No bait and switches here!

Have questions? Shoot us an email (info@comfortedkitty.com) or call/text us (925-494-0485)

Will I have the same sitter each time I use your services?

While we do assign a sitter as your primary sitter — and strive to have that person care for your cat each trip — we cannot guarantee their availability each time. This can be due to such factors as illness, personal obligations, vacations, or other scheduling conflicts. If we do have to assign a substitute sitter to help you out, you will always get to meet that person beforehand to see they are a good fit with your cat too, and also go over the whole visit care routine with them. And rest assured… the sitter will ALWAYS be a The Comforted Kitty sitter who is background checked, insured, bonded, and fully vetted. Additionally, all of your cat care routine and contact information is stored securely in our pet sitting software so that regardless of which sitter helps, they will always have the most up-to-date information to complete the care — and execute the visits — properly without any confusion.

Absolutely. Check out our Happy Clients page, as well as our Yelp, Google, and Facebook review pages. Lot’s of our current clients are eager to share their experience using our professional cat sitting services!

Kat S.
"It's a joy to see cats express their unique personalities. My heart melts when a cat sits on my lap and makes biscuits, or when I ask them a question and they meow in response."
Hi! My name is Kat and I'm a cat person! When I was a kid, there were many stray cats in my neighborhood, and I always took a liking to them. It wasn't until my early twenties that I started to cat sit for friends and foster kittens, showing me just how interesting, strange and lovable cats can be. My husband and I decided to adopt a foster kitten a few years ago. At the time, she had the cat flu, so we named her Sniffles. I work remotely, and I get to hang out with Sniffles...a lot! One could say that she is my favorite coworker, making brief appearances in Zoom meetings.

"Cats are there for you in their own special way. Not everyone understands them and what it takes to create a real bond. I love how real the love feels because I know it doesn't always come so easy."
Hi! My name is Emilia and I am finishing up my senior year of college online at California State University Monterey Bay. I have had cats my whole life, in fact, I currently have four! Three boys and one girl. I began pet sitting in high school for a little extra cash while I was saving up for college and just never stopped. I understand that your pets mean the world to you and when I am taking care of your pet they will be my whole world too. I am currently working part time at a preschool which gives me plenty of time to commit to you and your cats! They would have constant love and attention from me to keep them happy and healthy during our time together. I look forward to meeting you!

Moira T.
"Cats are magnificent animals. I love how they can have multiple fluffy, comfy cat beds, and yet choose to sleep curled up in a plant."
Hello Cat Parents: My name is Moira and I adore kitties of all kinds. So much so, that I occasionally embarrass my husband with my cat purse, hats, hoodies, etc. Who doesn’t love a Cat Mom Beanie? I have had the pleasure of taking care of friends and family cats, feeding them, playing and loving them (if the kitties allow me to). For the past 14 years I have been a business owner and recently sold it, so I could follow my heart and dedicate my life to the care of animals (kitties being my favs). Because I have four of my own cat babies, I understand the importance of being dedicated, nurturing, responsible, loving and honest. I know our kitties are our home’s royalty and allow us to serve them. In volunteering, I have helped with trapping cats (11) behind my commercial kitchen so I could have them fixed and returned to their “home.” Two of the colony I caught, I brought home where they now live (with my two other kitties). Three others were also able to be socialized and found forever homes. I am currently attending online classes to become a veterinary assistant primarily for the knowledge, as I would love to eventually have a cat rescue. I cannot think of a more joyful career than taking care of animals and working with The Comforted Kitty and their cat-loving clients.

Natalia A.
"I love that cats can be independent, curious and sassy, while being the most adorable, loving creatures. Having a cat on my lap is my happy place, specially if they are purring."
Hello! My name is Natalia and I am excited to be your next cat sitter. While I didn’t have the luck to grow up with cats, my love for them started at 18 years old. I was living on my own for the first time, and decided to take in a kitten and adventure buddy, Morel. He taught me about independence and boundaries, high cleanliness standards, zoomies and purrings. I’ve been a cat lover since and taking care of cats for friends and family always brings me joy. In addition to being a cat person, I am also a documentary filmmaker. I’ve lived in and traveled multiple countries, enjoy learning languages (I speak Spanish, French, English and currently learning Portuguese), love taking neighborhood cat tours, and spending time in nature. Originally from Colombia, I’ve called California home since 2015.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Excellent service. My sitter was Natalia, who my cat absolutely loved. She took very good care of him for a 3 week stretch, and communicated frequently with valuable updates.” – Eric V. (San Francisco)

“Thanks so much Natalia!! They were very happy to see me, and of course extremely well cared for in my absence! Thanks for taking such good care of them and sending really comprehensive updates and photos. It’s really peace of mind while I’m away!” -Joe S. (San Francisco)

Sally M.
"What I admire most about cats is their loving nature, curiosity, and independence."
My love of animals began with a childhood neighbor who had many pets. She taught all the neighborhood kids how to bathe, feed, nurture, clean up after, and most of all to have a gentle compassion for animals. Those were some of my fondest times. Since then I’ve owned two cats, Breakfast (who’s in catnip heaven) and Eyebrow (now lives with my brother since I had to move overseas) and currently have a kitten named Lucy. I’ve been a pet sitter for many co workers and family friends. My hobbies include running, puzzles, and sewing.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We have used The Comforted Kitty’s services twice now for our very shy cat and both times we had a great experience! Sally has been super nice and friendly and always makes sure to give us daily updates (including some very cute pictures!) to ensure us that our special boy is doing well. Our cat has really warmed up to her and really enjoys the company while we’re away. Setting up services is super convenient and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of care! We will definitely continue using The Comforted Kitty any time we are away!” – Allison G. (Walnut Creek)

“I could not have imagined a better overall result! Sally was absolutely amazing. From first interview to our arrival home. She communicated daily and sent pictures of our cats and the adventures they were on with her. She wrote very adorable updates that made being away from our beloved pets even more manageable. I really can’t say enough about what a great experience it was using The Comforted Kitty to petsit for us during our vacation. I will not hesitate to use them again.” – Michael S. (Pleasant Hill)

“My cat sitter, Sally, was excellent. I was really worried about leaving my cats for the first time since COVID-19. Sally sent me pictures each day and I saw how well my fluff baby took to her. This made me feel so much more comfortable leaving my lap cat, who is usually glued to my side, and did wonders to help me actually enjoy my vacation!” – Camille J. (Walnut Creek)

“We highly recommend The Comforted Kitty and our cat sitter, Sally! We have an elderly cat who needs TLC and medicine administered, so it’s always worrisome when we go away on a trip. But Sally soothed our worries. She clearly is a cat lover and has a sweet personality, taking good care of our fragile kitty. She is professional and communicated well with photos and videos and easily administered the oral medicine. We were very pleased with Sally and The Comforted Kitty experience, and we are in fact booking her again right now!” – Scott A. (Walnut Creek)

“Thank you so much Sally for taking great care of Lucy and Matilda! We made it home safely. Both cats were in great spirits when we got home.” -Veronica T. (Pleasant Hill)

“I just wanted to express our gratitude for your exceptional service. You did an excellent job providing updates daily and the photos were really a great bonus. The house looked great when we got back and the cats were in tip too shape. I think they might be missing you a bit. We truly appreciated everything you did and we look forward to using the service again for our next vacation.” -Michael S. (Pleasant Hill)

“Thank you so much for taking such great care of the kitties and house for us, Sally! Always a pleasure having you back and grateful for your dedication. 🤗” -Ellie W. (Walnut Creek)

Eliska V.
"What I love most about cats is their unearthly ability to take our sadness and turn it into a kind of serenity. Somehow, they can sense the sadness that is a part of life and transform those feelings into a deep calm."
It has been a great pleasure for me to have known so many cats throughout my life, beginning when I was just a small child. There was Paganini, a black and white tuxedo cat my dad brought home to our houseboat one day. I still remember the smarting pain that rose when he scratched my hand to ward off my fervent advances just to touch him. Years later, there was Max, or Maxwell, as my mom used to call him. What I remember most about Max was his alabaster mane, that appeared to hem in his head like a halo. When we teenagers my mom took my brother and I to the Humane Society to pick out a kitten, a fluffy tabby we named Pierre. I remember Pierre very well. We were very close, and I missed him a lot when I moved out of my dad’s house to find a place of my own and attend college. Even when I became a so-called adult, Pierre and I still enjoyed chasing each other, his claws clicking, then sliding and scratching at the wood floor at the end of the hallway to make the sharp turn into our dining room. I still miss him. These days, my partner, S., and I are close friends with a long-haired tabby we call Captain. He stays at a hotel across the way from us, near the hotel’s pool. That is where we saw him for the first time, along with his brother, Gill, and his mom, Skip, about five years ago. One day Gill and Skip followed us back to our home, a 36-foot sailboat. They came and went as they pleased, back and forth along the long narrow docks and through a parking lot between our boat and the hotel. Captain, a very sweet, very cautious tomcat never ventures far from the hotel’s pool area. Every morning and evening, rain or shine, S. and I come to see him. First, I brush his long silky coat, then S. sits on the grass and pets him while he eats, and I shake out the hair and debris from his bed inside his “house”, a little wooden shelter our neighbor constructed recently, right before the heavy rain started last year. Then I put a hand-warmer or two under the blanket on his bed and pour fresh water in his big water bowl. Captain insists on having these cat duties completed in this order. If not, watch out! S. and I would love it if he came with us back to the boat, but he won’t- and I don’t blame him one bit. I often take care of our neighbors’ cats and dogs in the marina when they leave town. They have been here their whole lives, and it is home for them. Captain’s home is on land, and I take comfort in knowing that he’s nearby and we can come over and see him anytime. It is my sincerest wish that all people experience the great pleasure that comes from knowing cats and taking care of them. The world would be a better place.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Amazing service that exceeded expectations! My husband and I had a few reservations regarding having a stranger in our home caring for our kitties, but right off the bat, the initial meeting with our sitter allayed our concerns. Eliska was absolutely wonderful: kind, thoughtful, punctual, and thorough. You can really tell she cares about cats, which is so important when your pets are your family. She asked lots of questions to make sure they received the proper care (even checking logistics I hadn’t considered, which was great). The beginning forms to fill out on the app are a bit long, but in my opinion it is necessary considering each cat/household has different needs. Also, once you go through the initial process, the whole experience is pretty much seamless. It was wonderful to receive daily detailed updates and photos of the cats and their feedings/playtime. It made for a much more relaxing vacation, knowing they were well-cared for. We couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. And, if you’re lucky enough to get Eliska, tell her Will and Raven say hello! Thank you, Comforted Kitty!” – Raven P. (Berkeley)

“My family and I are so happy we found such a wonderful service in the Comforted Kitty! It is so easy to make a request for care and Dan and associates have been fantastic giving support and answering questions. As for our assigned cat sitter, Eliska, she is probably one of the best cat caregivers we’ve ever had! Her daily, detailed reports let us know exactly what’s going on. She quickly understands each cat’s particular needs and makes extra efforts to keep them happy and healthy. In one report she said she ran around the house to play with them and to give them some exercise, which they love and need. Well, the proof is in the pudding as both cats were so calm and happy when we got home! Usually we get a bit of a cold shoulder from the cats when we return from a trip, but this time they were remarkably happy, social, and loving. They even greeted us at the door. I’m very grateful for Eliska’s professionalism and her warm and intuitive interactions with our kitties! You’ll be lucky to book Eliska!” – Pamela M. (Berkeley)

“I hadn’t used pet services in years and was hesitant to do so. I was very pleased with the thoroughness of the service provided. Eliska was very kind and sensitive to our old cat’s needs and exceeded our expectations!” – Cherie E. (Alameda)

“Eliška from The Comforted Kitty has visited our cat, Star, so far for 2 different weeks while we were away. Upon first meeting Eliška at the meet & greet, I liked her. She asked lots of questions about Star, her behaviors, her fave toys & activities, her food, etc. She took notes and gave me the sense she was listening. Eliška checked in again by text before our first time away. During our first time away, Star was not the most pleasant cat to Eliška. She hissed and growled at Eliška, and even lunged at her twice. Eliška stayed her ground and did not let Star think she was intimidated by her behaviors. Eliška consistently talked very calmly to Star, got on the floor to be at her level, and did not try to pet her. During our second time away, Star exhibited some of the same behaviors, but it seemed like Eliška was making some progress over the course of the week. There were 2 days when there was no hissing or growling at all. Eliška had suggested she use a whistle if/when Star looked like she was going to lunge at her, and we agreed that was ok. The strategy seemed to work for the most part. We also realized that Star was likely feeling threatened if Eliška approached her feeder or fountain, so she changed her behavior and gave Star her wet food and treats far away from the feeder & fountain. This helped. Every day when Eliška gave me an update and sent pictures of Star, she said “See her tomorrow” which made me sigh with relief, knowing she wasn’t going to give up on Star, which she hasn’t. Eliška has acknowledged that Star is scared when we’re away, which shows through her behaviors. We have 2 more weeks planned to be away this year, and while I’m not happy with Star’s behavior, I’m glad that Eliška will be coming to visit her. I have a feeling that over time Star will come to accept Eliška and will no longer act bad towards her. I’m very glad I got connected with Eliška as it takes a very special person to commit to visiting a cat that exhibits aggressive behaviors and to not give up. I highly recommend Eliška to care for other kitties :)” – Gina B. (Oakland)

“We were really pleased with the Comforted Kitty! Our sitter, Eliška was punctual for our meet-and-greet, had a notepad with numerous questions and notes and had thoroughly read my own notes about our two guys and their setup. Communication from the company was thorough. Eliška did all we asked and more, taking excellent care of our difficult cats. We got lots of feedback every day along with a checklist of tasks and photos! Highly recommended and would definitely use Eliška and the Comforted Kitty again.” – Gem S. (Oakland)

“Thank you so much for taking your time with them and taking such good care of them and the house! it is appreciated! take care and the girls will look forward to seeing you next time!” -Leslie B. (Alameda)

“Thank you again for everything! I’m so relieved to have found someone that the cats and I like and trust so much!!! I’m sure we’ll see you again 😸😸😸” -Angela F. (Alameda)

“Thank you so much Eliška. We got home late last night and Misty was thrilled to see us. We really appreciate all your hard work and great care of the kitties. We will definitely get in touch the next time we go on a trip!” -Ellen K. (Oakland)

“We are back home from our trip and everyone is happy and super chill. Thank you so much for your excellent cat care! You are truly one of the best sitters my crew has ever had and the best sitter they’ve had since my friend left town a couple years back!” -Tracy G. (Oakland)

“Hi Eliska! Omg, you must really be a fun sitter because they are both super, super happy and affectionate! I really can see the difference from another sitter who was never able to pet Bitsy, and Bitsy was not happy at all when we got home. I hope you continue to work for the Comforted Kitty company because we only want you to care for our kitties! ❤️” -Pamela M. (Berkeley)

"One of my favorite things about cats is that they each have their own unique personalities, so I look forward to getting to know yours."
Hi! My name is Jessi and I moved to San Francisco from my hometown of Chicago in 2022. I spent the first 24 years of my life living with my first feline best friend, Tigger. Currently, I have two silly and spoiled rescue kitties, Hendrix and Arlo, who bravely joined me on the plane for our move to the West Coast. I got my first cat sitting gig way back in middle school when I cared for my English teacher's cat and I am thrilled to now be part of The Comforted Kitty team. In addition to cats, I enjoy writing, roller derby, and photography - so expect plenty of cute photos of your kitties from me!

Daria F.
"What I like most about cats is their expressive faces and different personalities. I've never had a cat without its own quirks, and I think that is what makes them special and great family members!"
I grew up with cats and consider them essential family members, I don't think there's every been a long period of time where there wasn't a cat in my home. Because of this I've been trusted by friends and family to cat sit for them while they traveled for vacations, either for short periods of time or for longer. My understanding of cat body language and needs makes me a great cat owner and a good cat sitter - or so I've been told. So I decided to cat sit more professionally! Aside from cats, I also own rats, and am just as quick to notice any changes in behavior with both species. I love my pets with my whole heart and try to give them the best care possible, and I hope to carry this trait over to the cat-sitting role. Whether it's a pet sitter or a vet, I find that as a pet owner I want that individual to truly care about the animal so that they will put in their best efforts.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I used The Comforted Kitty for the first time this Thanksgiving. Daria was amazing and made our cats feel comfortable while we were away. She was attentive and asked the right questions during the first introduction. She followed our instructions perfectly and sent detailed updates on how the cats were doing along with pictures. We came home to happy and healthy cats. I highly recommend the Comforted Kitty!” – Ryan L. (Walnut Creek)

“We have used The Comforted Kitty’s services many times when we’ve gone away. Daria has been our cat sitter every time and deserves a stellar review! She’s a natural “cat person” and understands the nuances of cat behavior. Daria has been so caring, attentive, and responsible with our fur babies. We typically request 30-minute visits for our cats. She visits promptly each day, and sends text and photo updates afterwards. In addition to feeding and scooping litter, she takes time to socialize, play with them and brush them (when they let her! 🙂 Our kitties are always well cared for and relaxed when we come home. It gives us peace of mind knowing that she’s watching them. I’d highly recommend Daria from The Comforted Kitty for your cat sitting needs. She’s the best!” – Ali G. (Walnut Creek)

Trinity C.
"My favorite thing about cats would be that each one is their own personality and the unique sounds each one has when they are trying to communicate!"
Hi! My name is Trinity and I am currently a PhD student in molecular cell biology at UC Berkeley. I have had pets since I can remember... I grew up with several dogs, cats, and cats who thought they were dogs. Our cat Midnight even had two litters of her own! After moving to the bay area for graduate school, I became a cat mom to my Hazel and Leo who have extremely different personalities but are the best of friends. In addition to my own cats, I also frequently take care of my coworkers' cats when they are traveling for work or vacation. I understand how pets become a part of the family and treat them as my own when I have the pleasure of taking care of them.

"What I love most about cats? Well, their adorable faces, playful nature, and soothing purrs, but most of all their tiny little paws and squishy bellies! But above all, I love the special bond that can form between a cat and their human. It's truly magical."
Hi there! I'm Katherine, a self-proclaimed lover of all fur babies, especially little angels who go “meow”, who's been obsessed with feline friends since I was a little kitten myself. Growing up, my home was always full of love, with pets by my side, and right now I live with my sweet girl, Chami who is a rescue who holds a special place in my heart. I love exploring historical places around the Bay Area, baking, and finding ways to be creative in my free time. As a student, I always make time to unwind with my fur baby and cherish the moments we share. I can't wait to meet your furry friends and create our own special memories together!

Laura P.
"What I love about cats is their unique personalities. Each is their own individual that may (or may not) allow you to become part of their world. If you are lucky enough to be allowed inside, there's nothing better than interacting with a contented kitty, especially if they give you a purr."
Hi there! My name is Laura and I am passionate about kitties! My love of all animals started in childhood being raised by a cat loving mother. I am a caretaker by nature, and have spent the last several years raising my two children. Now that it is time for me to get back into the workforce, I am excited to do something that I truly love. Working with animals is my passion and brings me much joy and happiness. I have cared for many types of pets including cats, dogs, hamsters, fish, bearded dragons, turtles, even snakes. I love them all! Any kitties in my care will be treated with love and respect as if they were my own. I have completed a Pet CPR & First Aid Course along with Cat Sitting Fundamentals in order to make sure I am prepared for any situation that may come up during a sitting. I will treat your kitty and your home with utmost respect, and do my best to ensure your absence is the least stressful it can be for your fur babies. I look forward to meeting fellow kitty parents and providing the best care possible to kitties while their family is away. I was born and raised in the South Bay Area. I'm a mom of two teens, one in high school, the other in college. When I'm not taking care of others, I enjoy hiking, supporting my favorite sports teams (San Jose Sharks & San Francisco 49ers), hanging out with my family including my kitty, Oreo, and cheering/spectating at my daughter's volleyball games.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Comforted Kitty is such a wonderful cat sitting service to work with, and very reasonably priced! One of our cats doesn’t do well with boarding so this is the perfect alternative. Our sitter was Laura and she did a great job taking care of our kitties, as well as being super communicative for exchanging keys and throughout the weekend. The service allows the sitter to fill out detailed reports on each cat for those with health issues. We will definitely be using her for all of our sitting needs in the future.” – Alicia R. (Irvine)

“The Comforted Kitty was fantastic. Although the start-up process was a bit a lot as we had to provide lots of info and instructions on our cat, their sitters are great and we had no worries that our cat was well taken care of. Our sitter Laura was thorough and caring, and we got picture updates every night (and even a video update or two). And, honestly, she probably played with our cat more consistently than we did! I would 100% recommend again.” – Zack N. (San Francisco)

“I am a very anxious and overprotective pet owner so I was nervous about securing a pet sitter for my two young kittens. I am a first time cat owner so I was extra detailed when researching for a cat sitter. I love that The Comforted Kitty is focused on caring for cats. We used their services twice now. One was an overnight trip and the other was for 1 week. I also appreciate that the org and each sitter are insured. I love that The Comforted Kitty requires a meet and greet with your sitter before the first scheduled visit. It really helped us feel more comfortable and to see how the cats react. Our sitter was Laura P. and she was so amazing. We scheduled for her to come twice a day. She has a calm demeanor and seemed to really care about my cats. She played with them, fed them, and cleaned up their bowls and litter. She sent a lot of photos after each visit – not just for the day but for each visit. Our cats are wary of strangers but Pie liked Laura right away – even flopping on the floor! Piper is more cautious but loves to play. I was surprised that by the third visit or so she was playing with Laura, and flipping over on her back. I especially liked the way The Comforted Kitty’s app shows a checklist of what was done after each visit. The app also saves conversations between you and the sitter so it’s nice to look back if you need to find something. Overall, it’s been a great experience! I believe they do their best to get the same sitter each time. This was super important to me since my girls seem to really like Laura.” – Sue K. (San Jose)

“I’ve used The Comforted Kitty a few times now for my cat, Clara, and have been incredibly impressed each time. My sitter, Laura, has been so responsive and communicative, and spends real quality time with Clara every time she visits. I tried The Comforted Kitty after my experience with another cat sitting service, where I’d found they’d not been spending the full thirty minutes with Clara (average visit was 12 minutes, shortest was 6). Laura not only spends the full thirty minutes, she frequently spends a little bit more time beyond that. I recently went away for two weeks and came back to find a very happy and healthy Clara, who was excited to see me, but clearly had been well stimulated while I was away. I’m glad to have found this service, because it makes leaving my cat feel a bit less painful.” – Hugo K. (San Jose)

“This was my first experience using a cat sitting service and I was a bit nervous. At the initial meeting, Laura was very thorough in making sure she understood what was needed, and I felt very comfortable having her in my home. While caring for my cat, Laura was very kind and caring. My cat is afraid of people, but Laura was gentle and didn’t give up – after a couple of days, Laura won her over and became my cat’s new friend! Everyday, I received a message on how the visit went, with pictures and videos. It was great to be away from home, and not be worried about how my cat is doing.” – Nat C. (San Jose)

“We’re home and the kitties seem happy you were there to visit them. Thank you again for taking such great care of them. I’m hoping we get to travel more together now that we have a cat sitter.” -Courtney M. (San Jose)

“These are such great photos!! We’re both tearing up because they look so happy and playful. 😻 And Piper was scratching! That means she’s happy! Thank you for being an awesome sitter to them. 💙🐾” -Sue K. (San Jose)

“We’ve just arrived home and were greeted by two very happy cats! Thank you for taking such wonderful care of them while we were away. Your pictures and updates alleviated our worries and brightened each day. We cannot thank you enough.” -Bryan B. (San Jose)

“Hi Laura! We just got home and everything looks great. You did an amazing job! We cannot thank you enough. It was so great knowing we had someone so good taking care of them and getting your reports. We’d love to have you watch them again in the future.” -Tori S. (San Jose)

Sierra F.
Sierra would be delighted to care for your cat! It’s her avenue to quality kitty time, as she currently doesn’t have any of her own due to apartment restrictions. After having grown up with three cats throughout her childhood, going off to college presented the unique challenge of being without the comfort of a furry friend. She misses in particular the sounds of a little companion around the house—of a tinkling collar bell, the deep rumble of a purr, and the insistent meows at mealtime. But it really started for her in kindergarten, when her teacher was an avid SPCA volunteer who would constantly have a new litter of kittens, each with their own personalities and challenges, and Sierra always offered to help out with feedings during recess. When she’s not looking after some cute animal or another for her friends and family—not only cats!—Sierra is working part-time at a bakery and tutoring soccer players on the side to save up for her master’s degree in psychology. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking elaborate meals and working it off at the gym with weightlifting and pilates; afterwards, her walk around the neighborhood is, of course, planned on a route that passes all of the local cats’ favorite hangouts.

Steve M.
I LOVE CATS!!! I completely understand why the Ancient Egyptians believed that many of the Egyptian gods chose cats as vessels to inhabit! I love it when cats sit upright like they do in the ancient hierogplyhs. They are so majestic sitting like this, and I love hanging out with them while we're all meditating together. Om Shanti and a Deep Bow. I've been around cats and dogs my whole life, whether working for clients, or helping out friends and family. I love cuddling with cats, and rubbing dog bellies! I had a cat for 10 years while growing up, and later in life my brother had two cats that I helped take care of for 5 years. For one of my clients, I took care of 2 cats, a huge outdoor garden, and a large indoor plant for 10 days with two drop-ins per day, morning and evening. For another client I took care of 3 cats with one drop in per day. Another client had me take care of 2 cats and house sit for 2 weeks. Yet another client had me take care of 2 cats and house sit for a month. I'm a part time Cyber Security, Zen & Yoga Student, so I have time to take care of your fur baby, or babies. I typically have morning, mid-day, and evening availability for cat and/or dog drop-ins. I can also do overnights. I'll be staying at a Yoga Ashram in San Francisco at the start of 2023 where I'll have some extra duties, and responsibilities. However, my overall flexibility will still be very good. I'll stay at the Ashram for at least the first half of 2023 while I get my Yoga on!

"Cats to me are most interesting creatures, many different personalities and probably a slight jealousy wishing I could sleep as much as they do!"
Hi! I’m John, although I mostly go by my middle name, Liam. Its fair to say I’m an animal lover, and have been around cats pretty much all my life, and am currently the cat parent to one senior, Gabe, and two kittens, Chris and Jay. I’ve spent a fair amount of time pet-sitting, both for friends and for family, and find it quite enjoyable being able to meet new cats. I also spend several months volunteering with CatTown Oakland, helping cats that some deemed “unadoptable” find homes. When I’m not spending time with my cats, I’m out photographing trains, walking, writing stories, or playing with my model trains at home or at the local model train club. I’m an avid history nerd and love going to museums almost as much as I enjoy time with cats!

Denisse A.
My name is Denisse Alfaro and my hobbies are hiking, volunteering and cat care~! My love for cats started when I was a child and rescued my first cat off the street, his name is Oreo. Then rescued two more and my admiration for them has only grown since then! I am fond of cats because not only are they adorable and fun to be around but they are also there for you emotionally like no other. I am the biggest cat person due to their uniqueness in personalities, resilience,curiosity, loyalty and their independence. My experience: Where I previously lived, I would have stray cats roaming around. My family and I took care of them as our own and would feed them and take them to the vet for checkups. We ended up adopting one while the other two preferred the outside. Also as of recently, I have been volunteering at a pet shelter, specifically in the cat department to get an even better understanding of cats. Some fun facts about me are that I am bilingual! I speak both Spanish and English fluently, and a bit of French as well. I am a college student with online courses and a flexible schedule so feel free to book!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“The Comforted Kitty has always been such a great service. It’s easy to book and always has someone available to watch our cats. Most recently we had Denisse and she was awesome! Both of our cats are very shy of people. She was so patient with them and after nearly a week she finally got some kitty sightings and a few scratches in with our braver cat. We so appreciated having someone kind and communicative watch them and it put our minds at ease to get updates with pictures, even when they didn’t come out for her.We will definitely use this service and Denisse in the future!” – Katie R. (San Francisco)

“I had a really good experience with Denisse from The Comforted Kitty looking after my cat. She followed all of the instructions and sent updates for each visit. It was very reassuring to know that she was there keeping an eye on him!” – Stacey M. (Oakland)

“This was our first time using a professional pet sitter and I am so happy we found this service!! We liked Denisse immediately and so did our cat! It was a joy to work with her and our 17yo cat took to her immediately. From getting the initial quote to the meet & greet to communication during our trip, everyone we interacted with was professional, helpful and really kind. Denisse took such great care of not only our cat but our home and it put us at ease while we were away. The app is very easy to use and you get text messages too so you’re always in the loop while you’re away. I really like how you have to do the meet & greet too so you know who will be caring for your pet. I also found their services to be affordable, especially given the quality service you get. Sometimes it makes me pause to see a business that has 5 stars but now I understand why. We can’t wait to book it again!” – Katherine K. (Richmond)

“I couldn’t be happier with Denisse’s cat sitting services. I could immediately tell she is a legit cat lover. She pays meticulous attention to my cat’s needs, habits, and routines, ensuring a stress-free experience for both of us. Denisse’s daily updates including photos and messages put my mind at ease. The litter box was always spotless and she made sure my cat received her medicine, treat, fresh food and water every day. I can’t recommend highly enough.” – Joie G. (Oakland)

“A thorough and thoughtful process from start to finish! Denisse gave us daily updates, complete with photos, during each visit. Our kitty was well fed and cared for, and we had wonderful piece of mind on our trip. We are so glad to have found Comforted Kitty!” -Corey N. (Oakland)

“Best cat sitters around! Ronnie and Denisse have both been wonderful and amazing cat sitters. Both of my kitties are 12 hrs old and are still quite active and like to play. My boy (Kairo) can be shy at first and doesn’t warm up to everyone. This can be challenging because I need a cat sitter that can get close enough to him to give him his medicine. Well, after just 3 visits with either Ronnie or Denisse, he was comfortable enough to go up to them and purr and rub up against their legs. They have both been very punctual, follow all my instructions, stay the stated length of time, are great communicators and send tons of pictures. In addition, I’m happy to pay the current fees because the sitters not only take great care of my kitties and home but also because Comforted Kitty carries industry-leading and expansive commercial liability insurance and bonding policy specific to the pet sitting industry. I’ve used other less professional company/individuals and they don’t deliver the services promised and it just causes more stress when I’m away and I don’t get to relax. With Comforted Kitty sitters, I go on vacation happy and relaxed knowing my kitties and home are in good hands!!! Thank You !!!” – Patty C. (Richmond)

“I am so happy that I found this service and met Denisse! I was very nervous leaving my cats even for two nights. The cats loved Denisse and were so much at ease with her that they allowed her to brush them. I loved the updates and pictures and the app made everything so easy. thank you all so much for setting up this service!” – Swati P. (Richmond)

“Thank you Denisse! You did an amazing job! We did indeed have a great trip and it was so much better knowing the kitties were being well looked after! We don’t travel often but next time we do we will definitely reach out again!!” -Tara D. (Richmond)

“Hi Dan I wanted to drop a note of appreciation for how great Denisse is and this service is. I will definitely be a repeat customer and will also be able to travel now knowing that the kitties are well looked after and happy. Thank you for providing this service” -Swati P. (Richmond)

Marilee M.
"I admire how cats fit into our world on their own terms. Cats don’t speak our language yet manage to communicate quite clearly if you watch closely. They ask only for our respect for them as individuals, and well, maybe some kibble."
Hello, my name is Marilee. I have rescued stray street kittens, fostered cats, raised bottle-baby litters, socialized shelter cats, adopted medically fragile elderly cats whose owners have died, raised money for cat spay/neuter programs, and staffed feral cat clinics. Each cat who has touched my life has amazed me. I admire how cats fit into our world on their own terms. Cats don’t speak our language yet manage to communicate quite clearly if you watch closely. They ask only for our respect for them as individuals, and well, maybe, some kibble. I am fortunate now to be professionally retired from 20-plus years as an emergency/critical care credentialed veterinary technician and have even more time available to spend in the company of cats. My Best-Orange-Cat-in-the-World, Sparky, would prefer that I meet any new kitties outside his home and I have to respect his wishes. Working with The Comforted Kitty gives me an opportunity to meet those new cats. I would be honored to meet yours and give them the care and respect that they deserve.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I highly recommend The Comforted Kitty. Our sitter Marilee was awesome. I received detailed messages, photos and videos right after every visit which put my mind at ease when I’m away from my kitty. I appreciate how meticulous and professional she was. The app is also easy to use. Will definitely use their service again!” – Bam S. (Emeryville)

Adrien M.
"What I like most about cats is that their care routine matches their individual personalities. Diva cats tend to be particular about how their food is served. Couch potatoes are typically nonchalant about new visitors saying hello. Wallflowers need more one-on-one time to build up to play mode."
Hello! My name is Adrien and I live in Concord with my cat, Fernie. As a child, I was obsessed with the show “That’s My Baby”, which led to my childhood dream to become a tiger breeder and raiser. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out, but I did get to do the next best thing: raise a sickly seven weeks old kitten into a living room tiger! Watching her grow and develop her own personality has made me what some call “a crazy cat lady” as we go on adventures together using a backpack or stroller. I’ve developed so many methods and skills in cat care through raising Fernie for the past 7 years and counting. I have extensive experience in creating positive connections and environments with pets of all shapes and sizes through my 7 years of working at Pet Food Express and I look forward to applying that to cat-sitting. It was there that I learned that maintaining a pet’s daily routine (and maybe some calming aids) can help furry friends feel less stressed while their favorite human is away. I will learn how your kitty goes about their day and use my expertise to keep them happy and comfortable. As far as care goes, I have experience in feeding frozen raw or fresh foods. I have tried out many clumping and non-clumping litters too. If your kitty enjoys being brushed, I will gladly help them not hack up hairballs on your bed while you're gone! Just let me know what your fur baby is like and I will provide them with the care best fit for them. You can also upload your special instructions for your cat so we can review what they need together. I am excited to meet you both and give lots of love to your kitty.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Adrien took care of my shy/frightened Coco with daily visits for 12 days and literally had Coco eating out of her hand by the end. Adrien did an outstanding job taking superior care of Coco; making her food/treat puzzles to encourage her to eat, scooping her litter daily, refreshing her water, and talking to her, generally making this little rescue kitty feel safe. I was a little worried about leaving Coco with a stranger since it had taken me 7 weeks just to get her to come out from under the bed when I adopted her in January. On top of all this Adrien also took excellent care of my plants, collected my mail, took the trash bin out and retrieved it. On top of all of this, she sent me daily photos and a detailed report of Coco’s activities. I will not hesitate to call on The Comforted Kitty any time I’m in need of a caregiver for my kitty.” – Lynn C. (Concord)

“I had to leave my Coco for the first time since adoption for a whopping 12 days. I was a nervous wreck as she is a former stray, vision impaired, and still working on trust issues. After the first visit Adrien M. had made Coco feel safe enough to come out of hiding and eat; by the end 4 visits Coco decided this very special young woman was worth really getting to know and began coming out to greet her when she arrived. Adrien is a true “kitty whisperer” and I will absolutely be using her in the future. Adrien performed all of her tasks: litter box, plants, trash, mail, etc. perfectly and I received photos and a complete report every night. The Comforted Kitty can be proud to be represented by Adrien M. as she is outstanding in her performance of duties and has an enviable rapport with even the most timid of kitties.” – Lynn C. (Concord)

“Thank you for these amazing summaries and pictures and videos! We absolutely love seeing them!! I’m so happy he has such a cat lover there to take care of him!” -Alison C. (Lafayette)

Cinta L.
"What I like most about cats is that they are so loving once they get to know you. I find it so rewarding when a cat that has been shy the first few days of a pet sit comes out and sits on my lap for the first time. I also love getting to know each cat's individual personalities."
I have been working with animals and pet sitting for over 10 years. I am a San Francisco native and it's always been my dream to work with animals. I was previously an adoptions counselor at the SPCA and am currently a veterinary assistant. I love when I'm able to help comfort the shyer cats who are more nervous at the vet and gain their trust. I have had pet cats since I was a kid and currently have a flame point Siamese named Marshmallow.

“Cinta watched my cat Worm from 11/22/2023 – 11/25/2023 and she was amazing! I did the once a day, 30 minute visit at any time of the day service. She sent me a visit report (which included how much food he ate, whether she refilled his water, and whether he pooped or peed) and several photos of Worm during each of her visits. I appreciate that The Comforted Kitty schedules a meeting between owners and sitters prior to the first day of services. Cinta was a great sitter, and I definitely plan to use The Comforted Kitty next time I’m out of town!” – Haley B. (San Francisco)

“We just made it home to a whole bunch of happy kitties! Thank you so much for your excellent care, beautiful pictures, and thoughtful updates. It brings us great peace of mind to know how well cared for they are when we are away!” -Eric G. (Redwood City)

“I have used the Comforted Kitty twice this year and it has been a wonderful experience so far! Angelina was the one who looked after our kitties while we were away both times and she was fantastic! She is great at keeping us updated on the kitties. She sent us updates and photos everyday and my kitties warmed up to her super quickly, which is quite rare because of them are both pretty shy. Will be using them again this December, it so nice to know that my fur babies will be well looked after while I’m away!” – Zhe H. (Foster City)

“Love the ease of scheduling on the app and of course, the quality of communication and care provided by The Comforted Kitty. Angelina has recently started visits with my cat and does an excellent job of both keeping his world stable and keeping me updated on things when I’m away…all while remaining patient as she gives him the space to slowly but surely get used to a new pet sitter/person in the house. Furthermore, Angelina cares about what she does, is reliable, and ultimately, enables me to rest assured that my cat is in good hands. And that’s all I can ask for!” – Chandra P. (Burlingame)

“We have been clients of Comforted Kitty for more than five years and couldn’t recommend them more! Over the years, they have cared for our cats, a few of whom were elderly and had health problems. Comforted Kitty always made sure that they were well cared for by giving medication when needed, playing with them, and making sure they had all of the essentials. We recently moved from the East Bay to the Peninsula and were so happy to hear that Comforted Kitty covers this area too. Our new sitter, Angelina, is incredible! We love receiving the daily updates with photos of our kitties! Additionally, Angelina takes special care to address any of the unique concerns or needs that we have on each trip. Angelina and Comforted Kitty also recently worked with us to update our care plan for our most recent adoption. In summary, we have been extraordinarily happy with Comforted Kitty and would recommend them to anyone in need of a cat sitter.” – Eric G. (Redwood City)

Maria A.
I have over 15 years of experience caring for my own pets as well as fostering rescue pets preparing them for new homes. I help care for my housemate's and friends' cats, which I adore. I believe the keys to cat care are patience, consistency, love, and accountability. I believe consistency is crucial and how you earn the animal's trust. My love for animals is what drives me to now care for my friends' dogs and cats, and it is what drives cat owners to use The Comforted Kitty to make sure their cat is safe and happy. I like to tailor cat care to the specific cat(s) and their families. Knowing this information will help me make your cat feel safe and happy while you are out.

“I’ve used The Comforted Kitty twice and highly recommend. Most recently, I had Maria as my cat sitter. I met her about a week beforehand to show her everything and make sure I was comfortable with her. She’s awesome and sent me pictures everyday I was gone. I also had to add medicine to the mix after our initial visit and Maria handled it well and without complaint and reported back each day. Will definitely use both Maria and the comforted kitty again!” – Alex P. (Berkeley)

“I used The Comforted Kitty to care for my two senior cats on Thanksgiving week this year. Maria A was fabulous, making sure that they got play time, treats, and meds in addition to the routine feeding, watering, and litter box cleaning. Maria sent me daily photo and video updates and it was clear that my cats quickly warmed to her and enjoyed giving and receiving affection! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Comforted Kitty and Maria to anyone looking for warm and trustworthy cat care.” – Krisanne C. (Oakland)

Michelle B.
I've had cats for over 12+ years. I love animals and the first chance I was able, I got a cat, named Dog! Actually before Dog arrived, there was a neighborhood cat named Fred that I took to (and vice versa). We were buddies so much that I eventually let him sleep on my couch. My current cat is named Gaju, and I also have a dog. Gaju is definitely the boss around the house. I understand how important and special cats are and will treat them with kindness and understanding. If your cat is an extroverted cat and they would like to be petted or sit on my lap and play, I'm all for it! If they are shy and prefer quiet time, I respect that and can just hang out with them. My favorite part about cats is when they are making biscuits (kneading) and plop down on or next to me. That always warms my heart and puts a big smile on my face.

Michelle was fantastic with my cats when I was out of town!

Henry B.
"I love cats for all their goofiness, complexity and their abilities to love me back."
Hello, Cat friends! My name is Henry, and I have recently become an empty nester. I was exposed to various animals early in life on a farm in the Caribbean and quickly learned how to handle each one safely. There were several cats on the farm, and I was amazed at how versatile and agile cats are, not to mention their exceptional hunting skills. They make perfect companions. My family always had cats at home. The only time I didn't have a cat was during my 4 years in the military. I recently lost two of my three cats to cancer and poor digestive health. They were my best buddies at home. I understand how important our cats are to us.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We are so happy that we have Henry as our new cat sitter. Right from the start, The Comforted Kitty was easy to work with, and we felt confident in their business. Their website is well organized, their forms are useful, their billing system is user-friendly. Once we met Henry, we knew that our two furry friends would be satisfied as well. He is clearly a “cat person”, not just a glorified housesitter. One of our cats is not so fond of strangers, but we saw each day the thoughtful steps Henry took to gain his trust. Now that Covid has subsided and our traveling has resumed, we feel so much less guilty about leaving our little guys when we know how well they are taken care of by Henry.” – Richard P.

I made the Bay Area my home in 2012 while attending San Francisco State University. Around this time is when I began pet sitting for clients in the Palo Alto/Los Altos Area. I have recently made the east bay my home. I absolutely adore animals but cats have always had a special place in my heart. I’ve had cats most of my life and I currently have four, the youngest being a year and a half and my oldest being 14. “Every cat is my best friend.” – Unknown

“I can’t thank our sitter Alex enough for the care she took of my kitties. She managed everything flawlessly from an elderly kitty that needed medication to a younger shy one. The whole organization was responsive, caring and professional. I would definitely use them again and recommend them. thank you again” – Lisa E. (Oakland)

“I had Alex come over during this Easter weekend to watch my two kitties, Othello and Ruby. I am very pleased with the service and how well Alex took care of them. She communicated with me daily and I also received photos to know what they were doing. It’s a great relief to know your cats are safe in their own home when you are away. From start to finish Comforted Kitty was excellent in communication and service. I’d highly recommend. I’ll be using this service again in the future! Thanks Comforted Kitty & Alex” – Yvonne E. (San Francisco)

“My pet sitter of 20+ years wasn’t available to take care of little Coco for the first time – panic! Looking over this service, I liked what I saw, appreciated the care that goes into registering oneself and pet on their site, and rates seemed reasonable although more expensive than my usual person. I was so nervous, I almost didn’t go on my trip because I wasn’t sure I could trust a stranger with my home and kitty-boo. Enter Dan and Alex, I started to feel at ease right away as I went through the signup process, to ensure that every little detail was attended to in my request. Alex was great, beyond great, really, I got texts and photos every visit, that made it clear my tough little kitty-boo was making friends with Alex, and eating. And playing, and getting brushed. Exceeded my expectations, and now I don’t have to fear going away again, and not having my usual sitter. I’ll be back! Thanks guys!” – Cha W. (Oakland)

“Cats are so awesome, and even if they side-eye you, they’re still the sweetest, funniest, and quirkiest animals on the planet. Plus, they’re just plain adorable.”
A Napa local, Jessica grew up with the love of outdoors and always had animals around. She even had a pet rooster named Buzzar because he would purr for her! Her first furry friend was a kitten she named Precious, who she spent the next 20 years loving. As an adult, Jessica works in the wine industry and lives with her husband and their two rescue kitties, a sweet but shy Dash and little rambunctious Anni. She’s worked at a small vet clinic as a pet tech assistant, and pet sits for her neighbors and friends. She looks forward to caring for your furbabies!

Mary B.
I’m a big fan of cats! They are the most exquisite, elegant creatures! They were constant companions during my childhood growing-up in the Bay Area. My family and I adopted them from the local shelter or rescued them from the neighborhood. The first one I remember is Tickle, a beautiful, long-haired, gray tabby that my sister found as a kitten at a local park. As a teen, I literally became a cat mama when I bottle fed and raised a sweet, tuxedo kitten that was abandoned by her mother. I named her Chaps and she became a beloved member of our family for 20 years. I moved to New York City after graduating from college to continue studying acting and dance. I cat sat as I pursued my creative endeavors. I also adopted three kitties that I adored. One was a beautiful, large, black cat named Shorty. He was geriatric and the sweetest boy ever. I showered him with lots of love in his final years. I gained experience administering subcutaneous fluids as part of his care routine. Eventually, I moved to L.A. where I continued my cat sitting adventures. I adopted my two current fur babies, CoCo and Colby, from a rescue organization. They are sister and brother and the apples of my eye! I moved back to the Bay Area recently to be close to my family. I’m happy to bring my experience and passion to The Comforted Kitty team. It’s a privilege to spend time with each individual cat and develop a special bond. Whether you have a shy kitty who takes time to come out of their shell, an energetic kitten with impressive acrobatic skills, a senior cat who needs special care or a very social baby, it’s a great pleasure to provide extra-loving care and personalized attention.

We’re so excited to see her tomorrow and our trip could not be possible without all that you’ve done. 😻🤗 We can’t thank you enough for the love, time, and effort you showed our little princess! ❤️🥰😻 Our trip was only possible because of your help and watchful care. That was so thoughtful and unexpected that you swept up and tidied up. What a treat to come home to a clean home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

“We had an amazing experience with Comforted Kitty! Mary, our sitter, was responsive, detail-oriented, thoughtful, and went the extra mile x 10! We couldn’t have been more delighted and impressed with the service we were provided. We got daily photos and reports. She was unafraid to ask questions about our kitty or our house. And she went above and beyond to make sure our nervous little princess was comfortable during our absence. We are not going to hesitate to use them again when the need arises. Thanks Mary and TCK!” – Matthew S. (Belmont)

“The Comforted Kitty is excellent cat care. Mary is wonderful. She has been caring for my cat and fish over the past 7 months. I get pictures daily with an update. I highly recommend this pet sitting service.” – Linda D. (San Mateo)

“I would highly recommend the Comforted Kitty and Mary. It’s hard to not worry about our sweet kitties when we are gone but the Comforted Kitty makes it easy to have peace of mind. It’s easy to book online and Mary, my wonderful catsitter, is a cat whisper and patient angel. She has such a gentle and sweet nature that my very shy cat that always hides actually comes out to see her! She also has the utmost patience with my very senior cat and coaxes her to eat as well as monitors her condition. She sends you pictures and daily updates so you know how your kitties are doing. I highly recommend Mary for your kitties. Dan, the owner is very responsive and supportive and runs a great and caring company.” – Evelyn L. (San Francisco)

“Mary was my cat sitter and she did a fantastic job. She came by for the meet and greet and got to know the cats, what some of my concerns were, and what to expect. I was originally a little anxious to be gone out of town for a week, but after meeting Mary, I knew my cats were in good hands. She had a lot of knowledge about cat care, behaviors, and things to look for. I could also tell she just really loved cats. Exactly the type of person I’d want to leave my cats with 🙂 She sent me pictures of my cats every day along with a detail report of how they were acting and what they did. I really enjoyed that and it eased my mind to have someone take the job seriously. It costs a little more than having a friend or someone you know sit, but if you’re like me and want that extra level of love and care for your cats, give The Comforted Kitty a try :)” – Micah K.

I had my very last Soul-Cat Salem for 22 years. He was big, black, with golden eyes like sunflowers. We grew older and wiser together, moved several times and had a bond to last a lifetime. Since then I channel all my love and friendship to cats in need of a temporary companion! My friends call me the cat whisperer and I try to live up to that reputation. I look forward to meeting you and your fantastic feline ❤️

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Perks of the service: you can request once a day, twice a day, and even overnight care services. Of note there are no EOD services when I booked. They also have an app where you can input any special needs for your fur baby, feeding schedules, and even request other tasks ie taking in mail, watering plants, and helping take in/out the garbage bins. The sitters can also communicate with you through the app and send photos/ updates of your pet I requested someone to help me look after my kitten while we were away for vacation and I was very fortunate to have been paired up with Carla! She was so friendly and immediately I could tell she was a cat lover herself. She took to Felix immediately even though he switches between lovable and manic with his zoomies and was oh so patient with him. This was our first vacation and I was very nervous about leaving him home but she went above and beyond with twice a day timely updates and plenty of photos to make us feel at ease. She even helped replant a plant he had pulled in his mischief! I can’t thank her enough for making this first experience such a reassuring one, would 100/10 recommend her to a friend needing cat sitter services!” – Angelica T. (Santa Rosa)

“Excellent care and communication! Absolutely love the Comforted Kitty Care and our sitter Carla, who is skilled, reliable and kind. I am always at ease knowing she is taking care of things. My cat adores her and she spends quality time with him to make sure he’s getting plenty of love and attention while I’m away.” – A. A. (Santa Rosa)

"What I love most about cats is that we comfort each other. And who could resist a kitty paw your face at 3:00am after all, It's play time!!"
Hello, my name is Tracie and I would love to be your cat sitter! I am certified in First Aid/CPR for pets and have 5 years experience In house/pet sitting. I am hoping to put your mind at ease knowing I will always be kind and patient during my visits. My background has been in the jewelry industry for the past 20+ years as a Bench jeweler/designer. Growing up in Connecticut I was surrounded by animals dogs, cats, horses too! I love them all. I have always been intriqued by cat's, they can be quite entertaining with their "Circe de Sole" antics or playing hide & seek. They like things on their own terms, I can respect that. Preferring a sink bowl to a fancy bed or a piece of string vs. the cutest toy I've ever seen! Cat's seem to intuitively know when to cheer you up by curling up in your lap.

"My favorite thing about cats is how resilient they can be with time, patience and love. Another favorite thing is their ability to say a lot without saying a word."
Hi, I’m Denise. A wife, mom and cat lover!!! I’ve been surrounded by cats almost my entire life. My love for cats led me to volunteering at a local cat rescue. Through volunteering I’ve found my passion for taking care and finding forever homes for cats in need. My experience as a nurse has allowed me to help sick cats back to health. Seeing them recover is very rewarding.

"Cats are each a unique expression of diverse personalities, beautifully packaged in a bewitching blend of grace and charm. It’s an honor to witness the unfolding of each of their journeys."

I've always felt a special connection with cats, so much so that I overcame a mild allergy to adopt my first shelter kitty. The first cat in a long line of companions that at one point  included rabbits, an African Grey parrot, a canary, fish, and several hamsters. Since then, my feline family has grown to include three beloved cats, and I've partnered with local non-profits to assist with the care of nearby feral colonies. Holding a first aid certification from the Berkeley Humane Society under my belt, I'm equipped with essential skills in emergency protocols and CPR. I adapt easily to the unique personality of each cat, whether they seek playful interaction, soothing cuddles, or tranquil companionship. You can trust me to learn quickly and adhere diligently to any healthcare routines. Recognized for my reliability and meticulous attention to detail, I strive to make your cat feel cherished, secure, and thoroughly pampered when you're away. When I'm not on a feline adventure, you'll find me hiking, painting, and documenting life's nuances through mobile photography.

"I love that cats are both cantankerous and adorable. They are our tiny, furry, grumpy overlords and Saturday serves them happily."
Saturday Grace has been an avid cat-lover all their life. They currently live with mostly senior cats and have lots of experience with subcutaneous fluids, medication, and general senior cuddling. But fear not! Saturday has also fostered many kittens, including those abandoned by their mamas and in need of bottle feeding. Saturday is an all ages cat-carer. When they are not entirely absorbed by cat-cuddles, Saturday can be found trying to read around a cat, gardening with the "help" of cats, or rescuing their knitting from a cat.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Saturday from Comforted kitty took care of my kitten while I was traveling on business to Boston for 3 days. She was helpful, flexible and sent me updates about my kitten every time after the visit. Highly recommended!” – Ruoqi G. (San Mateo)

“Used the Comforted Kitty for the first time recently and was extremely happy with the the entire experience. The ease of communication, clear expectations, prompt responses really made the entire process so smooth. Best of all our 3 cats were very happy when we came home. Saturday did a wonderful updating us everyday and looking after our three “boys”. Would definitely use again.” – Margaret P. (Hillsborough)

“In December 2022, we used Comforted Kitty services for the second time and it was a great experience overall. Our sitter, Saturday, took pretty good care of our cats. She sent us a detailed summary and pictures of our cats every day. Additionally, she was super responsive, she would answer our messages within 30 minutes top. On the last day, Saturday made sure our cats had extra food and water since there was a possibility of outages and flight delays due bad weather. We’ll totally continue using Comforted Kitty services for our future trips.” – Maria A. (San Francisco)

Alicia T.
Hello fellow feline enthusiasts! I’m Alicia, a cat sitter with a knack for creating a cozy and stress-free environment for your feline friends. Growing up surrounded by cats, I’ve developed a deep understanding of cats and their unique personalities. In college, I took on the adventure of raising a playful kitten, learning the ropes of responsible pet parenting. I adore cats for their captivating mix of independence and distinct personalities, each feline bringing a unique charm to the table. From their affectionate cuddles and playful antics to the genuine bonds formed over shared moments, having a cat around is a special and fun experience. With several years of cat-sitting (and dog-sitting) experience under my belt, I’ve become well-versed in the art of keeping our whiskered companions happy and content, handling everything from short-term playdates to extended stays. From the young and sprightly kitties to the wise old souls, I’ve cared for them all, including administering medications when needed. When I’m not on pet duty, you’ll find me snapping cute pet portraits, baking delectable treats in the kitchen, or getting creative with arts and crafts. Your peace of mind and your cat’s comfort are my goals, and I can’t wait to be the reliable and loving presence your furry friend deserves.

Hannah T.
Hi, my name is Hannah and I have been a cat enthusiast for my entire life! I grew up with cats, and when I was 10 I convinced my family to begin fostering kittens, as long as I promised to be responsible for their care. My family and I continued to foster until I left for college, at which point I was without a cat for the first time in my life. That proved to be impossible for me, and so within a year I started fostering senior cats and ended up adopting a hospice cat that lived another two years with me, defying the vet's prediction that she only had a few months left. I am now living at an apartment complex, where I care for some of the resident stray cats as well as my own two indoor rescue cats. I love befriending new cats and am very keen on listening to a cat's body language and respecting their boundaries. I've worked with all types of cats, whether young, old, feral or sweet as can be. I'm comfortable giving all forms of medications, including any oral or topical medications, as well as subcutaneous injections. I’m currently going to school to become a vet tech, and if I don’t know how to do something I’m eager to learn. As an anxious and detail-oriented cat owner, I will always follow the exact cat care instructions and will send detailed updates with pictures/videos, since that's what I'd like from my sitter! I look forward to meeting you and all your feline friends in the future!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Hannah was our cat sitter over our Christmas vacation and she was an absolute delight! She was very responsive and timely to take care of our two cats. One of our cats is extremely shy however Hannah quickly gained her trust. We felt that our cats were in great hands and will absolutely book again.” – Mallory C. (Fremont)

“My cats are feral born and fear strangers. The Comforted Kitty was recommended to me by another pet sitting service which had a full schedule for the days I needed. Hannah at The Comforted Kitty has experience with feral cats which was just what I needed. Hannah never saw my cats but kept me updated by reporting on food eaten, litter boxes used, and toys rearranged. I knew my cats were in good hands and will use the service again. Thank you, The Comforted Kitty!” – Kat R (San Jose)

Hi my name is Kathy I've lived in the Bay Area all my life. Been an animal lover for that long as well ,especially cats. What I love most about cats is their independence they choose whether they like you or not. My background and pet sitting has been mainly neighbors and Friends. This is the first time I've worked for a company that specializes in cat sitting and I think it's amazing. I love what I do and I will take care of your kitties just as they were mine.

"Two of my favorite things about cats are the way they can express their feelings and how many memes you can create with their photos and funny faces."
My life with cats is one of my favorite things to talk about. I currently have two sweet companions (Pabu and Gorda) . We have been together for almost four years ever since I found them in my backyard. My experience with them has been one of the funniest things ever. I love taking pictures of them, especially when Pabu sticks her tongue out when I pet her, and when Gorda follows me whenever I do my laundry. One of my favorite hobbies are drawing, listening to music, cooking, making crafts, watching anime and also feeding and saving animals in need. I also like to create crazy and funny ideas specially about animals and I like to say that I have the perfect meme for every occasion of my life.

Hi! What’s GREAT about cats, you ask? Though hairballs and finickiness can be trying, What’s not? Right? I LOVE the way they can be so stand-offish, yet when they turn on their charms SOOOOO attractive and endearing. As for their playfulness, it’s addictive. Who can resist—Certainly not me! Born in the desert of New Mexico, raised in the wilds of Alaska, and schooled in the tropical paradise of Hawaii, I have enjoyed the friendship of many types of animals from horny toads to tropical fish to a variety of dogs and cats—Sorry no bears yet. I know and feel animals, especially felines. You can trust me to leave your cat PURRING and you smiling.

Life is just incomplete without a sassy cat! My name is Megan and I’ve been caring for cats my whole life. Cats’ personalities have always brought me joy and working to earn their trust makes a bond with them that much more special. I’m a California girl, born and raised, UCSC grad and current staff member at UC Berkeley where I work at the UC Botanical Garden. It’s my honor daily to welcome guests to a world-class garden full of rare and endangered plants. It would also be my privilege to give you peace of mind and care for your fur babies while you enjoy adventures away from home. From litter box duty, playing, to cuddling, I’m happy to help. I’ve also had experience caring for cats with health issues requiring giving pills, administering creams, and more. As a past owner of a cat with special medical needs, I know how hard it is to leave home. I look forward to meeting you and your kitty!

Hi, I’m Krista! I would love to give your cat(s) the care they need when you are not able to, because I know how important it is that our fur babies have a routine they can depend on. My love for cats began about 3 years ago when I adopted a senior cat and fell in love. Since then I have gained experience administering IV fluids, and giving other oral medications as well as learned the importance of a balanced diet and adequate hydration. You can feel comfortable knowing I will take care of your kitties as I would my own. 🙂

I’ve worked with local rescues for the past 5 years, fostering cats that need a little help getting ready for their permanent home. I quickly earned the reputation as a cat socializer and expert at handling all sorts of cats. I found caring for kittens and cats extremely rewarding—cats give back so much more than they take. Having had pets all my life, I know what an important part of the family they are. That’s why I will give your precious family members love, attention, and care while you cannot be there. I have experience giving medications and am very comfortable providing any type of care they need.

"I love that every cat has their own unique energy, preferences, and antics. Once you’ve gained a place in their hearts they will give you unconditional love and healing in return."
Throughout my life, I’ve always had an unwavering love for animals, with cats holding a special place in my heart. Over the years my cat companions have been some of my best teachers and dearest family members. My beloved Siberian kitty, Phoenix, has been by my side for over 17 years. His kind and gentle soul has enriched my life beyond measure. Recently, our family welcomed a new young kitten who quite literally just showed up one day. Upon discovering she was without a home, we embraced her presence in our lives as a full time fixture. The joy these two bring me is indescribable, and I am immensely grateful for them each and every day. In addition to my passion for cats, I have worked as a commercial photographer and product stylist for the past 15 years. Beyond photography work, I find joy in hiking around Sonoma County, gardening, cooking, and dabbling in the ceramic arts. As an experienced and dedicated cat sitter, it would be my great honor to extend my love and care to your cherished kitties while you’re away. With a commitment to providing top-notch care, I aim to maintain their routines and form strong bonds to make your cats feel secure and nurtured in your absence.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We discovered the Comforted Kitty in late 2020. Since then we’ve become loyal fans of their service and have come to trust them on multiple occasions with the latest one just last weekend. Sherri has pretty much been our ‘go-to’ sitter for our cat Kitty over the past year. She’s awesome and has developed quite a rapport with him. She’s a genuine cat lover, so she definitely takes care of him and gives him a lot of love when my partner and I are traveling. We never worry and we can count on the daily check-ins and updates from Sherri with pics of their time together. All that aside, the Comforted Kitty is super convenient with everything coordinated through the Time to Pet app, including communications, service requests, instructions…everything. I highly recommend Sherri and The Comforted Kitty!” – Ross A. (Oakland)

“Sherri from Comforted Kitty has been a fantastic pet sitter for our 8-yr old cat. She gets him playing, purring, and eating with every visit and we appreciate the through updates we get with pictures we receive daily. At the end of the trip, we always come home to a well-rested and happy kitty. Highly recommend her services and Comforted Kitty’s support!” – Jeff L. (Oakland)

“I feel so lucky to have found The Comforted Kitty and my Kitty sitter Sherri. She has been so creative in her methods of stimulating and entertaining my kitty that I feel less guilty when I am away. Sherri sends me photos of my kitty so I can see how happy she is while she is playing and how comfortable she is with Sherri. She tells me how she is purring loudly and giving nose bumps so I can relax knowing that my cat is acting like herself and then I can enjoy my time away. Every Comforted Kitty Kitty sitter who has cared for my kitty over the past 2 years has been cat-savvy, loving and responsible. They have made my lifestyle possible.” -Wendy K. (Oakland)

“The Comforted Kitty has been our go-to when we’re out of town – very convenient and reliable. Sherri is awesome and takes great care of the cats. She’s very communicative and sends detailed daily updates. I don’t stress and trust that they’re in good hands while they’re in her care!” – Beka A. (Oakland)

“We just had a wonderful vacation with Sherri from the Comforted Kitty taking care of our cats. She bonded with them right away, figured out what kept them entertained, and gave them lots of love. One of our kitties was stressed out the first few days, and Sherri gave us updates about the panic-vomits, and was just as relieved as we were when our kitty relaxed into the reality of us being away. Our kitties were happy, healthy, and relaxed when we returned. Of course, they are really glad we are home, but we can tell they were comfortable and calm while we were gone – and Sherri’s daily photo updates show they definitely looked forward to her visits! We would definitely like Sherri to sit our kitties again.” – Katie K. (Richmond)

“The Comforted Kitty has kept me comfortable on all of my travel over the last year! Sherri is a fantastic cat sitter – I can tell she cares about my cat (and all the other fur babies she cares for). I really really appreciate the ease of the portal, the text communication, and the photos. Also, my cat will ONLY eat out of Sherri’s hand – she’s never done that for anyone else! I always feel relaxed going out of town because I know my kitten will be well-cared for. Highly recommend the Comforted Kitty (and Sherri!) in particular!” – Liz S. (San Francisco)

“We reached out to The Comforted Kitty based upon our regular cat sitter’s recommendation when she was unavailable. Sherri H. came and met us and our kitties, took detailed notes, and then came and took care of them over both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday breaks. Sherri went above and beyond both with caring for our cats, keeping the house very clean and tidy, communicating with us every day (pictures of the cats, details about each visit, etc.), and making sure that mail and packages were brought into the house. She even left a fun peacock feather toy as a gift for the kitties. During the first set of visits, Sherri noticed there were a few ants in the kitchen and made sure to sweep the area, place the cat food bowls in plates with moats of water, and to keep the sink wiped clean with dish soap. When we got home – no ants – hooray! Finally, after many of our vacations, we are used to returning home to a not so pleasant “vet’s office” smell – likely a combination of stressed cats and perhaps insufficient cleaning of messes. However, when we returned home after Sherri had been caring for our cats and home, we noticed that the house did not smell bad – hooray! We would highly recommend Sherri H. at The Comforted Kitty!” – Sarah W. (Berkeley)

“We’ve used The Comforted Kitty multiple times over the last year, and Sherri has been a wonderful companion to our cat when we’re away. We appreciate the detailed check-ins through the app, plus Sherri sends daily messages and photos. It makes such a difference to know that our cat is getting pets and playtime every day! Highly recommend!” – Christina L. (Oakland) 

“I’ve been using the Comforted Kitty for over a year in Oakland. I’ve used a lot of pet sitting services and this is certainly one of the better ones. I’ve had the same sitter since day one (Sherri) and she’s lovely. Good communication, follows instructions, caring, responsive. The app is also easy to use and the company always gets back to you in a timely fashion. Highly recommend.” – Holly D. (Oakland)

“I’ve used the services of The Comforted Kitty for years now, and I’ve been really happy with all of the sitters who have looked in on my cat, Javier. Before starting with The Comforted Kitty, I used to board Javier at the vet. Once I switched to cat sitting, I realized how much better it was for us. Especially as my cat gets older, it is stressful for him to go to the vet/boarders; he is much more relaxed when he stays home and a sitter visits him. What I appreciate about the sitters from the Comforted Kitty–Sherri has been our most recent sitter–is that they are wonderful with communication, both before and during my trips. They send an update with photos every day. Plus, they’re wonderful with cats–they know how to give my kitty all the playtime and chin scratches and back rubs that he needs. Sherri and the other sitters have been reliable, kind, responsive, and just on top of it.” – Jessica H. (Berkeley)

Holly B.
"I love cats because their personalities are just all so different and you really have to work to build and establish a trusting relationship. Some cats are rambunctious and playful, some are shy and independent and most are a mixture of it all! It is so rewarding to get a scared baby to warm up to you and want pets!"
Hi! My name is Holly and by day I am a maternal-fetal medicine sonographer but by night I love to dog sit, cat sit, and babysit! I just like always having something on my calendar. I grew up in the Midwest and always had pets growing up and interacted with a lot of farm cats too. My mom actually didn't like cats (ugh right?) so I wasn't allowed to have one while I lived with her but on my very first day in my first apartment on my own, I looked outside and saw a tiny kitten between a tree and a trash can, took her in and she is now my Nala. I've had her for more than 7 years now. Nala has had two brothers since she came home, Smokey, who I adopted as a senior cat, and now Archie, who is a very rambunctious 3 year old. I also have 2 dogs who love to run and play! (Nala is less interested in them) I have cared for many different pets as I have house sat and pet sat through the years. I've pet-sit many dogs, many cats, a few chinchillas, and some guinea pigs. All these animals ranged in size and care needs. Some needing medication ( including insulin and anxiety medication). some just some extra love and cuddles while their people cant be home with them!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I loved booking with the team at The Comforted Kitty (TCK) for cat-sitting soon after I adopted my first cat in 2018. Because of the pandemic and not traveling much, I haven’t needed cat-sitting services over the past couple of years. But I’m slowly but surely making travel plans again, so I recently reconnected with TCK. And I’m so glad I did! First, everything is so easy to use with TCK’s website and the Time to Pet app. My requested services were confirmed the day I put them in on the website. I was then smoothly connected with Holly, one of TCK’s cat-sitters in Walnut Creek. Holly really paid attention to what my cat Trina would need while I was away, and we had an excellent “meet and greet.” When I was out of town for a three-day weekend, Holly sent the most amazing updates about Trina! Her visit reports were so fun to read and basically made me feel like I was at home with my cat. Holly also made sure to include several outstanding pictures of my cat in her messages. Giving someone access to your home and inviting them to take care of your beloved animal companion are serious tasks. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that the team at TCK loves and cares about cats–it really shows in their fine work.” – Kat D. (Albany)

“I needed a pet sitter for the first time since getting my cat during the pandemic. The Comforted Kitty made it very easy to set up a request and visits.
Holly was a great help and sent me lots of great reports with my cat during my trip. The app made it very easy to keep up to date on what was going on while I was away. It really helped alleviate a lot of my initial worries about leaving my pet when going on a trip for the first time. I will definitely be using them again for future trips!” – Nathan I.

Linda O.
What do I like most about cats? That's easy! Cats purr! Cat's purring is by far the most comforting sound that I can think of. It's said that the cat's purr has healing properties and I believe it. One of the little things that make the cat's purr so special is that they can be hard to obtain. 'Catitude" is a thing! It's true! Everybody knows it! It's true that some cats will purr as soon as you enter their airspace, but most won't. Most purrs come at the end of what can be a long getting to know each other period. This process is kind of like finding a great book; discovering the plot bits at a time. Every cat is like a little person in that they are unique and beautiful in their own ways. I'm constantly being charmed by their characters. My cat Achilles, who passed away about a year ago, is an excellent example of that slowly unfolding personality. When we rescued Achilles, he came into our lives skittish, terrified and sewn up like 'Franken-kitty'. The poor little guy had been broken, abandoned, cut up and bounced around. He cringed when I tried to pet him, he didn't like being handled at all and he never purred. He had every reason to grown into a bitter and hostile old cat. But he didn't. This resilient little guy grew into the most affectionate and easy going cat that I ever met. He was incredibly patient with little children, loved other people and other cats and we ended up describing him as the UN of cats! And he had the most incredible purr; frequent and hearty. It was very rewarding. Every time he purred I felt that connection with him like I was one of his people and he felt it too. Some of my earliest memories of childhood included our family cat named Bootsie. He was a big grey and white Tomcat that I adored. Since I was so keen to have my own cat, my mom decided to teach me about the cat's needs for care by farming me off to the neighbors to babysit their cats and yards while they were out of town. It was a wonderful experience. It really hammered home the concept that pet ownership isn't just about cuddles. There was daily care needed. It was also a responsibility and these darling little babies were totally dependent on me. I was undeterred by the knowledge of this responsibility and, in fact, loved it. The second I moved out of my parent's house, I eagerly began the search for my own cat and I have had cats ever since. What those early lessons in cat care also led to was a life-long unspoken agreement that I was my family and friend's go to person for cat and yard sitting. I have loved being able to help my 'people' feel free to explore and enjoy all types of travel without worrying about the pets that are dear to them. I know that other pet 'mommies' or 'daddies' love their pets as much as I love mine and I know how hard it can be to leave them even just for a while.

I am most content in the company of cats. I am very familiar with cat behavior and enjoy caring for them. There have been at least 2 cats in my household since I was little. I have volunteered to socialize cats at both the SPCA and Animal Care and Control in San Francisco. One of the most rewarding jobs was the Feral Fix Program at the SFSPCA. I helped trap feral cats to have them neutered or spayed at the SPCA and brought them to my house to recover after surgery. I am good at administering medication, recognizing body language, and respecting their boundaries. Cat personalities are always fun to get to know. I like making them feel safe and loved.

"I believe that cats were brought into the world to show humans that they can't control everything."
I have a soft spot for cats. OK, I love cats. I am a dedicated staff to my three furry friends. Hershel, a 20 yrs-old grand-pa cat, also known as Lord Hershel rules the place. Whisky, also known as Whisky the sweetie is a 3-year old adorable American ringtail and a talented mouse catcher. Guinness the Menace is a 5-month old kitten who is absolutely fearless! They are all rescue cats and purr machines. I have always had cats and probably always will! When I am not catering to my cats' every need, I spend a lot of time on the water, either racing sailboats or taking clients out on San Francisco Bay. I also love biking and I explore our beautiful state on two wheels. During those times, I rely on trusted cat sitters to care for my beloved furry babies and I know it can be a stressful time when you are separated from your pets. I love it when I receive pictures, videos and stories about their day! I want to give your cats the best care possible, treating them as I would my own. I look forward to sharing memories while you travel via photos or videos so you can feel close to your feline family members. I speak English, French and Spanish.

Hello, I'm Leah, and I'm excited to look after your furry friend! I am an experienced cat sitter dedicated to providing top-notch attention to your feline companions. Growing up on a small farm in west Sonoma County, I've nurtured and raised over 15+ cats throughout my young adult life, becoming the go-to in my neighborhood for all cat sitting needs. Passionate about these curious critters, I've provided assistance to many close friends and clientele's fur-babies, ranging from lively kittens to elderly cats with medical requirements. Meeting new cats and understanding their unique personalities brings me immense joy - each one is brimming with distinctive traits, and I take pride in ensuring their comfort and happiness while their pet owners are away. On the side, I manage a small online clothing business specializing in whimsical fantasy-inspired designs. My shop's mascot is Keekee, my endearing yet derpy Maine Coon fluffball, who currently resides back on the family farm. Although not suited for city life in Oakland, Keekee and his younger brother Obi are cherished additions to our family and integral parts of my life. As a fellow cat owner, I'm eager to deliver exceptional cat care, providing you with peace of mind knowing they're in good hands.

"What I like about cats the most is their independent nature, and their ability to show affection on their own terms, making each interaction unique and meaningful. There is nothing I love more than when a cat has chosen you to be their chair."
Hello! My name is Lidya Biniyam-Robinson. I am currently a college student at San Francisco State University, just a small jump over from my hometown, Berkeley. I have lived with cats practically my entire, mostly multiple at a time. Over a span of several years, I’ve partaken in countless cat-sitting jobs for my neighbors; doing activities such as cleaning litter boxes, providing food, administering medicine, and more. Along with that, household duties like taking out the trash and collecting mail. Where I have the most experience with caring for cats, I have also cared for dogs and chickens. I have 2 cats named Samantha and Darth Vadar (named by my brother), both of which I love dearly. Along with my cats, I have my beloved dog Rigley. Some of my favorite hobbies actually have my pets involved, one of which is hiking. Rigley and I love to hike throughout the East Bay. Cooking is another hobby of mine that my cats will partake in by sitting in my kitchen and watching me, and sometimes attempting to jump on the counter (which I then have to gently redirect them). Since I was a little girl, I have always had a passionate love for animals, but especially cats. Knowing I have the opportunity to care and interact with your beloved cats brings me lots of happiness.

"What I love most about cats are their personalities! They can be so funny and crazy but they can also be very sweet and cuddly. I hope to meet your furry friend no matter their personality!"
Hi There, Thank you so much for visiting my profile! My name is Genna and I live in Walnut Creek, CA. I am from the bay area but spent 5 years in Ventura, CA for my bachelors program. My hobbies include hiking with my dogs, going to the gym, cooking, sleeping, shopping, and spending time with your furry friend, of course. Even though I grew up with cats and dogs as pets, I have been working with animals professionally for 10 years. I started out dog walking, but shortly after I started hosting dogs for day care and boarding services. When I lived in Ventura, I began housesitting stays and had a consistent dog walking and drop-in schedule! In 2021, I broke my ankle and leg so unfortunately I had to stop dog walking. Since the injury, I have fully committed myself to caring for cats!

Howl S.
"Over the years of being in the close company of hundreds of cats, I have developed a love for their strength as they overcome physical ailments and climb seemingly impossible heights. I also adore their capacity for trust and love, which I am so grateful to have experienced many times, especially with my own cat kids."
My name is Howl, and I have never met a cat who I do not adore. I have not only owned cats my entire 33 years on this planet, but have spent 3 years working in cat rescue and 3 years working at a veterinary hospital. I also have been a pet sitter for several friends and family members over the years. I take a special interest in ensuring the comfort of all cats in my care and presence by maintaining a calm, patient, and welcoming environment at all times. I have a special love for cats with special needs, which I discovered working in cat rescue and when I was a hospice caretaker for my own darling girl when she became ill. I am currently the parent to a 15 pound orange boy named Toulouse who is my entire world (I love him so so much). When I am not caring for your lovely feline friends, I am an artist, specifically a self-portrait photographer. I have been on a hiatus from creating art, but will be starting up again this year! I also have a great love for being in nature and around animals of all kinds. I am also a bit of nerd when it comes to animation, art, music and psychology. I live with my angel of a partner in Oakland, CA, where we share a love of trying new foods and exploring new places.

Having rescued my first kitty Jazmin at the age of twelve, I have now been a proud cat dad for over twenty years. Currently raising three of my own, a pair of adopted half brothers Legend, and Teemo, and the most adorable void that came attached to my (now) wife Obsidian, I believe that every cats unique personality and charm should be nurtured and given the room and healthy home to grow. I love to learn how cats like to interact with humans in their space, and do my best to coax them into showing off their cattitude. Nothing makes me happier then when I get to see them express themselves once all the nerves of a new human have gone away. My sitting experience stretches back all the way to my teenage years, and while cats are my focus, I am largely comfortable and excited to approach just about any furry or feathered situation. My hobbies include painting, woodworking, and blacksmithing. I like to make things with traditional methods.

Laura E.
Hi there! My name is Laura and I have been a cat person for as long as I can remember.. I have many cat themed items in my apartment, which include but are not limited to, cards, mugs, and figurines. I had cats growing up and have pet sat on and off since I was a teenager. Although I do not currently have any pets of my own, I have several fur nieces and nephews who are the cats and dogs of my friends and family. I love how nonjudgmental, curious, sweet, and funny cats are. Cats are also great stress relievers, which is essential as I am studying for the MCAT and applying to medical school. When I am not studying or spending time with my furry friends, I enjoy cooking, HIIT workouts, music, and travel. Pets are family so I look forward to providing the best possible care for your kitty. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry friends!

When I was ten years old, I rescued my first cat who was trapped on a mountainside. I heard him crying, found him, disentangled him, and brought him home. He was a beautiful tabby boy. I begged my mom to keep him. She said that if I learned what I needed to do to take care of him, we could keep him. I agreed, and thus began my lifelong connection with cats and caretaking of cats. By trade I am a psychologist who has worked mostly in the video game industry and currently work as a food taste tester. I love listening to music, sports, playing board games or computer games, doing work in the garden, hiking, cooking and baking bread. There are so many amazing cats in this world and I get to meet them through cat-sitting. I understand how important they are. They are family. I miss my cats when I am away, and I know that having someone responsible and reliable taking care of them and giving them love and attention, makes all the difference in the world. I look forward to meeting your cats and giving them the best care that I can!

"One of the things I like the most about cats is how they communicate. The clarity with which cats communicate their wants, needs, and boundaries is something I really appreciate. And of course their healing purrs."
I am a nursing student, artist, and medic with the Berkeley Free Clinic. My focus for nursing is community health/street medicine. In my free time I like to create--whether that’s embroidery, writing, gardening, or cooking. I value all forms of care work, including care for our pet family members! I have a cat named Squid who is outspoken, affectionate, and a good mouser. He grew up alongside my roommate’s german shepherd, Moth, and definitely picked up some dog-like traits because his favorite game to play is fetch with his toy fish. I grew up in a family of cat people with a cat always around and because of my comfort with human medicine, I do a lot of the caring and support for my friend’s special needs pets, including Moth who has required a lot of home medical support.

I love cats. I've had cats in my house all my life 😺. That's why a pet sitting job in San Francisco is so important to me. I feel like my CAT-LOVING batteries are recharging every time I pet a fluffy kitty. I truly believe that cats are the Superior Animals on Earth, and they just let us humans serve them))) I have just moved to the US from Belarus, Eastern Europe, and I am very pleased to see how local cat owners treat their pets - Highest standards and endless love! My hobbies are related to creativity: photography, filmmaking, music and watching movies.

I’m an SF native with an extreme love for all things animal related especially cats. I have had the pleasure of working with animals in various fields including boarding, vet assisting and grooming for many years. I also have two cats of my own named Taji (2 years) and Solana (8 years). They’re my heartbeat and make life better. When I’m not catering to them some of my hobbies include yoga, painting, biking, travel, vintage clothes resale and spending time with my family and friends here in the Bay.

Aamina A.
As a cat parent myself, I've noticed our feline friends are overlooked in pet sitting services. That's why I offer pet-sitting services exclusively for cats! I get along with cats and kittens of all shapes and sizes, and I can honestly say I've never met a cat I didn't like! I like to think of myself as a cat whisperer, due to my innate ability to connect with animals and cats on a spiritual level. (Some people might call me a crazy cat lady, but I wear that label proudly, too!) This allows me to have deeply fulfilling bonds and relationships with any cat. I've owned 3 cats over my lifetime and it is my passion to care for them. I have experience with all ages, from kittens that need more attention & play, to senior citizens that may require more advanced care and compassion. Being an exclusive cat sitter, I can offer you premium cat-care service beyond just the standard feeding, litter cleaning, and occasional check-ins. I will go above and beyond to make sure your cat feels loved, taken care of, and happy while you're away. I spent lots of time cuddling with, petting, grooming, talking to, and playing with my own cats throughout my life. I would treat your cat as one of my own and provide it the same level of care, comfort and attention as I would to my own fur babies. If you're looking for a responsible, reliable, friendly, warm, and loving care-taker for your feline friend, look no further! I would be happy to help you look after your cat and even your home while you are away. I provide drop-in visits and overnight boarding in your house or mine. Please contact me for questions, details, availability, or scheduling a meet and greet! Thank you and I look forward to meeting you and your kitty!

Reem S.
Reem’s extensive list of gifts include acrobatics & body contortion, Retreat Chef, Logistics Coordinator & Conscious Alternative Radio Show Host. However caring for cats allows Reem’s heart for service to shine & allows her to help others in many ways. Reem’s love for cats began at an early age. She was home sick from school & wanted to snuggle her cat Olive. When she went to the backyard she did notice a cat however it wasn’t Olive. Olive was out adventuring & no where to be found. Reem began feeding the stray & over time trust was built and the stray started spending more time inside then outside. Reem has had a cat in her life ever since.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“The Comforted Kitty was better than I could have imagined! Reem, our cat sitter, did an amazing job. Finding a sitter for Mudd, my 23 year old cat, when I need to travel can be challenging because she needs medication twice a day… and she isn’t super friendly about it. During the introduction meeting, I pointed out all the places Mudd might hide, and demonstrated how to give the medicine (the secret is distracting Mudd with treats), and Reem did the rest! Communication was better than I could have expected, I received videos during each visit, text updates, etc. Reem even watered my basil plant, cleaned the cat box, and took out the trash. I’ll definitely be using this service again in the future!” – Hannah D. (Oakland)

“This review is quite delayed — I used their services back in late October thru early November 2022. I needed to go on a work trip and was afraid to leave my elderly kitty who has chronic kidney disease and needs regular fluid injections. Reem was able to do overnight visits AND give my kitty the injections with no problem at all. She even came over prior to my trip to do a trial run with the injections. During my trip she regularly provided videos of her interacting with my kitty and that really eased my concerns. Plus, both she and Dan were always so responsive and accommodating with my requests, even when I had to reduce the length of my trip. They have a great app that you can use to communicate with them throughout and provide information on your pets. Reem left the apartment in excellent condition prior to my return. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend The Comforted Kitty, even for those with senior kitties who need extra care. You can tell that they are true cat lovers!! I’ll use them again for sure when I have another trip.” – Michelle L. (Oakland)

“The Comforted Kitty and our cat sitter Reem did an excellent job taking care of our cats. They were prompt and professional and setting up a meet and greet and scheduling services was a breeze with their client portal and app. Reem did a wonderful job putting our minds at ease by sending us video updates of our kitties while she visited. We were able to enjoy our time away knowing our kitties were well taken care of in the hands of a caring professional. Can’t recommend them enough!” – Olinda D. (Oakland)

“We really appreciate the excellent care our cats received from Reem last week while we were away. She made sure to let us know where they were even though they are grand masters at hiding and very weary of new people. We look forward to the next time we need to leave town and can have Reem take care of them again.” – Stephanie K. (Oakland)

“Reem took care of our two cats. We are very happy both with Reem and all the customer service at the CK. While the paperwork was more extensive than I expected, I appreciated that all these details would be there in case of emergency needs/changes, and for the future (it also was a message to me that they are organized/thoughtful…a good assurance when bringing someone into your home). Reem sent us some photos and videos with updates. Those videos especially made it clear that she has a great approach with cats, and she was diligent about all their care/routine details. Great communication and service, highly recommended.” – Karl L. (Oakland)

“We arrived home on Monday eve to some very happy kitties!! Big thanks again for taking such wonderful care of them!!” -Meghan L. (Oakland)

Andrea J.
"My favorite thing about cats is how much all of their personalities vary. I love meeting clients and their cats and getting to know their individual personalities through sittings. I interact with all cats at their own pace and enjoy seeing them become more comfortable in my presence."
My name is Andrea and I am currently a Vet Tech student (graduation date-June 2023). I work at an animals shelter and a VCA where I interact with cats on a daily basis. I specialize in neonatal kittens and am comfortable with all cats of all ages,sizes and temperaments. I am comfortable giving oral medication and subcutaneous injections. I foster kittens during the summer months and spend the majority of my free time with my own cats or others.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“The comforted kitty is a lifesaver, and so professional!! We had a family trip planned to Hawai’i and needed a new sitter as our normal sitter does not give pills, and our boy has recently started requiring medications every other day. Our other sitter also indicated that she’d be retiring soon, after us using her for 15 years, so we were desperate to find someone that our old guy would like and would tolerate pills from. Normally Comforted Kitty does not share duties, but they made an exception for us and we had the lovely and cat charmer Andrea come every other day to give pills and play, while our old sitter did the standard daily feedings and scoopings. Andrea was always prompt in our introductory sessions, and texted when she was heading to our house with her ETA (which was always right when we expected). She would send wonderful pictures of our kids during her visits, and you could tell that they loved her (when new people can sometimes spook them). Comforted kitty has a wonderful communications app, too, which makes it so easy to handle payments and appointments, and although they are a company with sitters in multiple cities and regions, I felt like I got the special personalized care that I would get from a purely local company. I heartily recommend using them, and am so relieved that we have a great new sitter to go to for our kids after our old one retires this year. Thank you, Andrea and Dan !!” – Molly O. (San Jose)

“Andrea was our pet sitter over the 4th of July week and she did amazing! We got picture updates of our fur babies everyday and she kept our place really clean including the litter box area in the bathroom! My shy timid cat Ruby even let her pet her and she never does that to strangers. Overall was a great service and would recommend it to any cat owners who have timid cats like mine! Andrea also fed my fish and did a great job looking after them, I would recommend her to any of my friends or family 🙂 Wonderful service! I’ve attached some pictures that were taken during the pet sit as well.” – Teara C. (Santa Clara)

"I love the way cats chirrup at birds, like they're going to convince them to come play. I also love when a cat lays down and purrs and lets you hold his paw."
Hello, there! Veronica here. I love cats! I have 2 of my own, and they are both adorably spoiled. I've taken care of cats for over 40 years, from family cats to neighbors' and friends' cats to local TNR cats. I've also occasionally cared for dogs, fish, reptiles, and birds. When l watch other people's pets, l like to make sure that they are safe and happy. I know your cat misses you when you're gone, and can get bored. I enjoy interacting and playing with them, and cuddling if they allow it. If not, l give them their space while still making sure their needs are met. I will follow all instructions when caring for your kitty and send you updates/pictures, so that you can have peace of mind while you're away. Cats can't tell us if something's wrong, so l will contact you if l notice anything amiss, and l will do everything l can to make your cat feel comfortable. Of course, you can always call/text/email me to check in about your cat as well. I'm here for you and your kitty whenever you want to reach out. I look forward to working with you and meeting your sweet purr-babies!

Marlene S.
"I love how cats manage to bend everyone to their will!"
I'm Marlene, born and raised in the Bay Area. I didn't really grow up with animals, so when the opportunity came up to pet sit for some coffeehouse regulars whenever they were out of town, I was game--except I didn't have the appreciation for cats that I do now. Shortly after getting my first apartment, the universe blessed me with the best first cat, and the rest, as they say, is history! From then on, if there was a cat around, I was trying to win kitty over. And let's be real, because I know we're all thinking it...cats are the best jerks. They are unapologetic, ridiculously cute and cuddly one minute, and then reminding you that there's still a wild beast inside the next. No doubt, I want to be a cat in my next life! I don't have to work or worry about how ridiculous rent and gas prices are. The food is always flowing, I get to spend my days lounging around in the sun, no bad weather or predators to worry about, I get to cuddle on my terms, and there's a box a go to the bathroom in and it magically cleans itself. (After getting a Litter Robot, the running joke was that our cat's toilet is more expensive than ours!) And everyone thinks I'm cute! Besides caring for friends' cats and our own, I've done in-home pet sitting, connecting with people who would let you stay at their house in exchange for caring for their animals. I mostly staycationed at people's homes around different parts of the Bay. I loved getting to explore different places, and getting to spend a lot of QT with kitties was a huge plus. After over a decade of working as a health care professional, I was able to retire early by way of financial independence. I now fill my days with a few gigs that actually bring me joy while still being of service and bringing joy to others. In addition to helping my husband with his business, I started teaching yoga again, and now, thanks to The Comforted Kitty, I get to meet and hang out with all the kitties! I love meeting their humans too. I consider it a great honor to be trusted to care for people's homes and pets, and I love being able to give people some peace of mind while they're away. When I'm not working, I'm probably hiking, going to the beach, taking care of my indoor jungle of house plants, listening to music or a podcast, reading a book, watching a movies, or hanging out with family or friends.

“Dan at Comforted Kitty has been a pleasure to work with. They are very responsive and thorough! The app/website in which we put all our info is very well thought out and I really appreciate the info we need to provide. Marlene was wonderful!! Our kitty is a senior cat with medication needs and Marlene took great care of her. Along with helping us turn on our A/C and retrieving our mail. She sent daily updates and photos through the app 🙂 We were able to book Marlene last minute this past Labor Day weekend and we are excited to have her back in October. Highly recommend Comforted Kitty and their team!” – Teresa W. (San Francisco)

“Wonderful, fantastic experience from start to finish! It was simple, convenient and really nice working with Marlene at Comforted Kitty. Super easy to book a slot online. If a pet needs individualized care, like specific food or medication, their form lets you spell everything out. A few days before we left town Marlene came over to meet the cats, and discuss what kind of care they needed. She was kind, professional and very supportive – totally on top of things in a relaxed, easy way — and I felt the cats would be in great hands with her. We arranged for once a day visits where Marlene put out food and water, scooped the litter, and visited with them for a while so they wouldn’t feel lonely or stressed. She sent pictures every day, texted, and kept us informed about how everything was going. She sent the perfect amount of info, which was great for our peace of mind. Marlene was attuned to our extremely shy cats and sang and talked to them. In return they made themselves visible to her, which is totally amazing and doesn’t happen very often with people outside our family. We came home to cats who were happy and calm — and we were happy and calm, too! Everything we requested was done exactly like we asked. Kudos for a job well done! We’ll definitely work with them again in the future!” – K. Lavier (Oakland)

“I had an absolutely delightful experience trying this service for the first time! Our cat-sitter, Marlene, was exceptionally responsive, attentive, and warm; I knew immediately that my kitty was in very good hands. It was such a joy to receive the photos and messages during our trip away from home, and seeing that our kitty was as happy as could be. I highly recommend the Comforted Kitty!!” – Beth S. (Oakland)

“The Comforted Kitty, as well as my kittys’ sitter, Marlene, are both fantastic. Setting up with Dan went well and he’s so friendly. I love using the company’s app since so much information can be shared between me and Marlene about my cat. And finally, Marlene is amazing. She’s so thorough and attentive. The pictures and reports she sends daily on my little one have been the best. I highly recommend The Comforted Kitty for your cat sitting needs.” – Monique C. (Oakland)

“Marlene is fantastic.  She’s kitty-sat for our two cats several times and is so caring and detailed.  One of our cats has some special needs with medication and special food, Marlene is extremely detail oriented and makes sure that both kitties get what they need. Not to mention playing with them and giving them lots of snuggle time. She sends pictures and notes everyday, and even took out the trash and cleaned up some messes.  It’s such a relief to have her look after them and to be able to relax on vacations knowing they are in good hands.  Can’t recommend her enough.” – Jen O.

“Marlene was great with my crazy cat when I was on vacation. She sent detailed updates and photos, so even though I was away I knew my cat was having a good time and getting her playtime and cuddles in! I’ll definitely be requesting her again for future sitting.” – Hannah C. (Berkeley)

“I cannot say enough positive things about The Comforted Kitty, and sitter Marlene S. in particular. I usually take two (2.5 week) extended trips each year and several long weekend trips throughout the year. I have two senior cats, one of whom has kidney disease and requires daily medication and subcutaneous fluids. I am kind of a worrier and my cats are probably the single thing that I worry most about – particularly when I am away for an extended period of time. I’ve been assigned Marlene each time I’ve booked TKS and could not be happier or more at ease with her care for both cats. She clearly took the time to get to know both cats – how they like to play, how they like their food prepared, what sorts of treats they like, etc. She always sends very detailed messages and adorable photos after every visit. She is extremely responsive – including after hours – and goes the extra mile to make sure both cats are happy. More than just being a great catsitter, I think Marlene and TKS have actually made me a better owner to my cat with kidney disease. Marlene had some great tips for administering fluids and meds that I have starting using and which have made my life a lot easier. Marlene has also been generally very diligent about administrative aspects of sitting. A couple of times I booked more visits than I needed and Marlene was helpful in reminding me to update my booking before being billed. Finally, Marlene has been really helpful with random non-cat-related housesitting tasks. For example, I have about ten chickens in a coop and she has graciously agreed to tend to them when sitting for the cats. She brings in packages and just generally makes sure nothing is amiss when I’m away. In sum, The Comforted Kitty has been a fantastic resource and I am so glad that I have found them, and Marlene in particular. TKS’s prices are reasonable and they offer a lot of options for duration and frequency of visits in a convenient app portal. I have found Marlene to be diligent, responsive, and skilled in caring for animals. I feel 100% at ease when she is caring for my cats while I’m away. I literally cannot think of any way in which the service I have received from TKS could be improved upon.” – Katy A. (San Francisco)

“Wow, Marlene at The Comforted Kitty is the best! This last December 2022 was the first time using this company’s services, but we did meet Marlene prior to our kittys’ visits. I had no idea (or forgot) that I would get daily notes and summary report. I love them! They’re incredibly useful too, because I got to hear that our kitty was taking her medication, like the good girl she is, and that she was eating normally, was spunky and playful with Marlene, etc. (so we knew she wasn’t too unhappy with our absence). Marlene also sent us photos and not only is it fun to look at original, adorable photos of our cat, but it was fantastic to see how well the two of them were getting along day to day. I have to give their app high praise too, it’s genius for all the information shared between both parties. I can’t recommend them and Marlene enough! We’ll absolutely hire Marlene in the future. In fact, I’m going to make a request now!” – Monique Q. (Oakland)

“I had to admit that I’m finally at that stage of life where I can’t just rely on friends to provide cat care. So we reached out to the Comforted Kitty for a long weekend trip. They were responsive that same day, and while the first time intake can be a bit of a beast, it is really extensive and they cover just about anything that could come up while you’re away, so it’s actually really worth the time and gives you that peace of mind while you’re away. We had our meet and greet with Marlene, and while both of our cats are skittish of new people, we were able to give a home tour, and she asked relevant questions related to what I had included on our intake. She definitely made me feel comfortable handing over the keys to our home. While we were gone I also had said I’d be fully available for questions, but I was on vacation… so of course that wasn’t the case! Marlene communicated not only the question she had, but when she didn’t hear back from me, she was decisive and let me know her plan of action. I was so appreciative of that, and to tell the truth she did exactly what I would have told her to do anyway. I think that’s the benefit of a service that’s catered to cat people, by cat people. So big thanks to them! We booked about a month out, so cannot speak to getting last minute care, but for a planned trip they were very solid.” – Cate H. (Oakland)

“Marlene from The Comforted Kitty was super professional, responsive, thorough, and caring. She was incredibly clear and precise in all our communications – making me feel like we were in very good hands and that our cat would be well taken care of. Marlene went above and beyond to make sure our beloved pet and home were safe and well (e.g., she alerted us that a surprise package we received was marked ‘perishable’ and made sure that the contents wouldn’t be ruined). Highly recommend!” -Simon M. (Oakland)

"I love it when cats make “biscuits” on your lap. They are little fur babies that trust and love you. Cats help relieve our daily stresses as well as provide us with endless entertainment."
Hello, my name is Kristy and I want to be your next cat sitter. I love all animals, especially cats! I have over 20 years of experience caring for all kinds of pets. Ever since I was little I knew that I wanted to work with both wild and domestic animals. I have a background in wildlife science and conservation biology. I have worked for the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, the U.S. Forest Service, Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, and the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley. I am currently working my way to becoming a Veterinary Technician. I share my home with three cats (ages 1, 7, & 12 years), a box turtle, aquarium fish, and a tarantula. My favorite part of the day is spending time with each of my pets and giving them the attention and care they need. I am a huge fan of providing animals with enrichments. (Defined as the process of providing captive animals with some form of stimulation in order to encourage natural behaviors, which helps to improve or maintain their physical and mental health.) As your cat sitter, I will make sure your fur baby is getting all of the attention and love it needs while you are away. I am also able to confidently take care of any additional pets (i.e. lizards, birds, fish, rabbits) that you may have. I am looking forward to meeting you and your cat(s) soon.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“My husband and I were worried about getting a reliable company or individual to help take care of our cat while away on a trip. My communication with Dan was very prompt, detailed and helpful. Their website information and instructions were well explanatory. Kristy was assigned to be our pet sitter. My first meeting and greeting with Kristy was like a breath of fresh air. My first impression of Kristy was excellent. ‘She is a loving, caring and professional lady. “Attention to detail, and thorough” She communicate with us everyday to let us know how Moochie is doing? I highly recommend Kristy to anyone who needs a pet sitter as I will surely request for her service next time around. Thank you Kristy!” – Victoria R. (San Jose)

"I love how every cat is unique and fascinating. When any cat accepts me, I feel like I have been graced by some great spirit who has allowed me to enter their world and share their time."
I have spent my entire life with cats (and dogs and rabbits and lizards and whatever else children bring home). Currently, I have four of my own cats and two hens, all of them rescues. I feel fortunate to be able to devote time to these fascinating creatures with great spirits who ask for nothing but respect and affection. And they give us so much more in return, it’s an endless payoff. I think that human beings are privileged to live alongside animals, and that any amount of time spent with them creates great personal rewards. I have volunteered at the Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter for nine years as a feline socializer and feline volunteer mentor. This has exposed me to cats undergoing all manner of strife, from being feral in a caged environment to the abandoned or abused, or experiencing the loss of their caregiver and home. It is incredibly fulfilling to make their lives a little bit better, and help them find the right forever home. I’ve also fostered cats recuperating from surgeries and motherless kitten babies who need bottle feeding every two hours. As a pet owner, I understand how hard it is to leave your best friends in the care of a stranger and I strive to make the experience as gentle and trustworthy as possible.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I’ve had Cara from Comforted Kitty, check on my little guy for a few trips now and I’ve been very pleased with her service. I’ve only used the 30 minutes a day option, but that’s all I need at this time. Cara is kind, through and her communication is excellent. I look forward to her picture updates and I’m happy to have found a sitter that I can relay on and feel at ease that my Booger is being well cared for. I would definitely recommend Comforted Kitty.” – Rae C. (Alameda)

“Cara recently sat for our kitty in Alameda. She did a wonderful job, and was really patient with her, which was great, as our cat is shy and skittish. She texted me with updates and photos every day, and I think she even dealt with cat hair on the stairs, though we didn’t ask her to. We will definitely ask for Cara again when we need to go out of town. She was wonderful.” – Kathleen (Oakland)

“I have used The Comforted Kitty a few times now and I would definitely recommend their services. My cat is young and doesn’t require much, so I only had Cara come daily for 30 minutes. She was through, kind and I enjoyed receiving Cara’s daily updates and pictures of my little guy. The price seems fair and everything is done on an app which is nice when you’re traveling.” – Stacy C. (Oakland)

“We found The Comforted Kitty when we got new kittens and had plans to travel when they were quite young. We last had cats a few years ago, and our previous sitters were no longer available. Cara at the Comforted Kitty was amazing, keeping our girls cared for, and most importantly, entertained! Regular updates and photos are made easy through the Time to Pet app, and are most reassuring when you’re away from home. We look forward to a long relationship with The Comforted Kitty when we need to be away.” – Ann B. 

“Cara at The Comforted Kitty did a great job keeping our new kittens entertained, particularly the first time we went away for more than an overnight trip. She genuinely seems to enjoy their antics, and provides hilarious updates and photos while we’re gone, as well as taking care of plants, the house, and much more. The Time to Pet app works great, and is a great checklist for both the sitter and for us. We will definitely rely on The Comforted Kitty as we begin to travel again more regularly.” – Ann B. (San Francisco)

“We have been using Comforted Kitty for a few years now in the Oakland/Berkeley area and it’s been amazing. Their service is extremely reliable and we have full trust in them taking care of our cat Snippers when we leave town. Our sitter Cara has taken care of Snip several times now and always takes great care of her. Cara sends detailed and fun updates, and does little things that we really appreciate, like bringing in packages for us. We’ve had a few occasions where we booked last minute travel and needed a sitter in a pinch – Cara was quick to respond and came to the rescue. Thank you Cara and Comforted Kitty!!” – Kevin W. (Oakland)

“We’ve been using The Comforted Kitty for cat sitting for nearly a year now. Before the first visit we filled out a detailed questionnaire about our cats and our preferences and we met our sitter to make sure it was a good fit. The scheduling process is super easy especially with their app and our sitter (Cara) is very thorough. We get updates after every visit with lots of pictures. We’ve also noticed an improvement with our cats’ moods when we return from traveling.” – Erin D. (Oakland) 

“Cara is awesome. She’s taken amazing care of our cat on multiple occasions by now, and in a short period of time she learned Peachy’s personality and she asked great questions – all aimed at trying to understand how she could make our cat more comfortable and relaxed while we were gone. Great communication, ultra trustworthy, caring and thoughtful. 12/10 highly recommend.” – Michael C. (San Francisco)

“This was a lifesaver. I felt so comfortable knowing my sweet Cali was cared for and could stay at home. Cara was professional, loving, and I arrived home to a happy kitty (and clean litter box) ! I really appreciated the daily reports and pictures. The app is convenient and easy to use. Thank you Cara and Comforted Kitty! :)” – Paula W. (Alameda)

“I used The Comforted Kitty when I went on vacation recently. I was so pleased with Cara, our sitter. The service was professional and loving, and I could tell that she really loves animals. I recommend them without hesitation. Meow!” – Paula W. (Oakland)

“My wife and I learned about Comforted Kitty by chance. We recently used them for the first time and we cannot say enough good things about both Comforted Kitty and especially Cara the wonderful sitter! We do not travel often but when we need assistance again we know where we are going for help. Thanks Comforted Kitty and Thanks Cara!!!” – Thomas L. (Oakland)

“What can I say except The Comforted Kitty is great. Using the app to schedule, pay, update our kitties information, and get visit information is super easy. But the real magic is our sitter Cara in Alameda. She is so friendly and absolutely adores our senior fellow. Cara’s updates provide lots of photos and honest information, including subtle behavior changes from visit to visit, just in case it could signal a potential concern. During one vacation these observations were enough that the vet wanted to see our kitty ASAP, and Cara helped to get him seen. Cara is fantastic, and we know our senior kitty is in good hands! We’ve also had Eliska watch our kitty once when Cara was busy, and she was equally great. Highly recommend The Comforted Kitty and its caring cat sitters!” – Aleta H. (Alameda)

“I found the Comforted Kitty on Yelp! It’s generally so hard to find great pet care in the Bay Area, and it’s even harder to find services that have expertise with cats (no, they’re not “just like dogs but smarter and littler”). My experience with the service has been top-notch across the board. Not only do they provide care specifically for cats, but their request and orientation processes are super easy and thorough. When I met Cara in person, she made extra effort to understand Birdy’s habits, tastes, and needs, which gave me confidence that she would really put the effort in to take good care. And she went above and beyond, sending messages, pics, and videos each day to make sure I not only knew Birdy was healthy and happy, but also updating me on the state of the house. Best of all, Cara seemed to really, truly enjoy her time with Birdy. I won’t hesitate to recommend the Comforted Kitty and to use the service again on my next trip. Thank you, Cara!” – Ryan G. (Oakland)

“Awesome cat-sitting service we booked for in-home care; highly recommend. Our sitter Cara provided delightful daily text updates replete with details and photos, which put us at ease and helped family members enjoy their trip without anxiety or worry about the family pet. Very grateful for the help and look forward to booking again soon with The Comforted Kitty!” – Nani W. (Oakland)

“I previously used The Comforted Kitty in 2017 when it was just starting out, and I thought the service was great. Now in 2022 a lot has changed in the world and in my life, but the services from this company remain top quality. Our cat sitter was Cara who gave us good vibes from the start at the meet and greet. Everyday she sent us thoughtful notes and photos of the cats while we were away and it was clear that she spent enough time with the cats to pick up on their individual personalities and eccentricities. The cats were relaxed and happy when we got home from vacation and we felt they were well taken care of. We would recommend Cara and this service and will be using it again in the future!” – K. M. (Oakland)

“Cara is a great cat sitter! She services the Alameda area. I felt really comfortable leaving my kitties in her care when I was out of town. She sent detailed daily updates with lots of photos. My cats seemed to get along well with her and came out to greet and interact with her. Would definitely book her again.” – Megan E. (Alameda)

“Cara has been taking care of my cats, Johnny and Baby, for almost a year now and it’s always so sweet to read her updates. It’s clear that she’s attentive and cares deeply about them and their well-being and that’s exactly what I need in a sitter. Especially since Baby has asthma and requires an inhaler and pill daily, it really puts my mind to rest when I’m away. Thank you!” – Leah R. (San Francisco)

“I was referred to The Comforted Kitty by another cat mom, who raved about their service. Cara was our sitter and I am so happy with the care she gave my two, quite fussy kitties. My cat situation is difficult in that I have to keep my two cats separate as they fight (that’s story for another day). Keeping them separate is hard to do in my apartment but Cara did a great job of keeping the kitties safe. She sent daily updates with photos and made a effort to bond with my more shy kitty (my other cat is super friendly and used to strangers). By the end of the reservation, he was coming out to greet her and she was able to play with him. I had put him into boarding before but he lost weight and it stressed him out. Knowing that I can keep both cats at home under a caring cat sitter is very reassuring. I plan to make another reservation for a longer period of time.” – Clair D. (San Francisco)

“I highly recommend Comforted Kitty for cat sitting services. I have been using them for a few years now and I am incredibly happy with my experience. The folks who are behind this service have been wonderful, reliable, and very responsive giving me peace of mind when I am traveling. I have been working with Cara W. and she has been lovely to work with. I love and appreciate all of the daily updates and photos and knowing that my kitties are in great hands.” – Helen H. (San Francisco)

“I adopted two kittens about a month before Thanksgiving, only to realize that I needed to quickly find some pet care while I was out of town. I was overwhelmed by the different options, but ultimately chose the Comforted Kitty given their professionalism. My sitter, Cara, ultimately ended up taking care of my kittens, and it went so smoothly. A few things to call out: + One of my kittens got an infection the week I was heading out, and the vet prescribed some medication. Cara was able to easily get our kitten to take her medication as prescribed.+ Cara gave extremely comprehensive reports — how much the kittens had eaten, their moods, and several photos. I really appreciated Cara’s thoroughness and ease with the kittens. Thank you!” – Jenn L. (Oakland)

“SOOO glad we found The Comforted Kitty and Cara! She took amazing care of our two senior kitties while we were traveling for Thanksgiving. It was easy to book and communicate with Dan (the owner) and Cara (our cat sitter) through email and the Time to Pet app; streamlines and seamless! Cara not only sent us regular updates after each visit, but also gave us lots of detail about their eating, play, and interactions, and she even sent us photos of our babies from every visit! Using the services of The Comforted Kitty gave us peace of mind to travel knowing that our cats were in good, loving hands. We were so happy with the service, we’ve already booked Cara again for Christmas! Thank you so much!” – Sarah B. (Alameda)

“My partner and I have used Comforted Kitty several times to provide cat sitting services while we travel. We’ve worked with both Cara and Emily, and they’ve both been great! They have been responsive, sending daily updates with pictures. I also like that we can request services online or in the app. In addition to feeding and taking care of the litter, they also make sure to play with our kitty and take care of the house plants as needed. Cara even offered to come and visit our cat an extra day when we were stuck due to airplane delays. All in all, definitely recommend the service.” – Evan M. (Oakland)

“Cara is awesome! She’s taken amazing care of our cat (Peachy/Peaches/Professor Longtail) on multiple occasions. And in just a short period of time Cara learned Peachy’s personality and asked great questions – all of them aimed at trying to understand how she could make Peachy von Peachenheimer more comfortable and relaxed while we were gone. Great communication, ultra trustworthy, caring and thoughtful. 12/10 highly recommend!” – Michael C. (Oakland)

“Thank you for taking such good care of our girls Cara, they were very content when we came home! We were looking at maybe spending another couple days away next week- will request in the portal, hope you are available!” -Kate M. (Oakland)

“Hi Cara! We just got home to 4 happy kitties! Thank you so much for helping us this weekend! As always, appreciate how clean and tidy everything is – I know this was extra work.” -Meg M. (Alameda)

Maria H.
"What I treasure most about cats is the unconditional love they give when you actually take the time to show them respect and make every effort to gain their trust."
My name is Maria Del Angel and kitties are my life. A black beauty with the sweetest meow came trotting over to me outside my apartment when I was 8. I fed her a trail of smoked turkey scraps until she gained the confidence to be petted and made my apartment her new home. I named her Mother Pearl and I’ve been a cat mama ever since. My best friend was a little tabby I named Sunshine, one of Mother Pearl’s kittens. Sunshine lived to be nearly eighteen and shared with me many moments that shaped my life. Today she lives in Tierra, my baby tortoise-shelled riot of a girl, who reminds me so much of Sunshine as she curls up on my lap and purrs vividly. Mother Pearl has also returned to me in the form of another black feline goddess, who used to roam the streets without food, suffering from untreated injuries. From the moment I scooped her up from the sidewalk and brought her to safety, I knew she was mine, and named her Cielo, which is Spanish for sky. Cielo is currently the queen of our house, a sassy Bastet on Earth whom I worship by giving her rubs, treats and reciting nonsensical poems as odes to her silky, plump charms.I have met many colorful and wonderful kitties while cat sitting for my friends and family and volunteering at the Humane Society of Silicon Valley I believe that cat parents deserve peace of mind knowing their cats are being cared for by someone who strives to make their kitties feel safe, nurtured and comfortable when mom and dad are away. Cats are not only exceptional companions, they are our children and God’s gift. Along with being a cat lover, I’m an artist, writer and runner who is addicted to peanut butter and sprinting (human zoomies)! My two favorite kitty themed mottoes are: Black cats are the best luck. And: Let’s save the planet, it has cats in it! Hablo español!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We had a wonderful experience with The Comforted Kitty. Maria is the best! She took care of our kitties twice a day for 12 days. She is reliable, thorough, responsive, professional, and really, really nice! She updated us twice daily with pictures and details about how our cats were doing which gave us great peace of mind. We will definitely have Maria watch our cats again if/when the need arises. 10 out of 10!” – SJ L. (San Jose)

“I am 100% satisfied with The Comforted Kitty. Our cat sitter, Maria, was kind, professional, and flexible. Our cat is very shy and I was worried that she would hide under the bed the whole two weeks we were gone. Maria worked her magic and our cat was very happy. Maria sent videos and pictures every day so we didn’t have to worry about our cat. Maria went above and beyond to make sure our cat was happy. We were able to enjoy our trip to Europe without concern. Thank you, Maria!” – Katie N. (San Jose)

“We love having Maria take care of our 3 kitties whenever we go away. She sends us daily updates with sweet messages and many photos. It’s so wonderful to know our kitties are so well cared for while we’re away. Maria’s the best! 💕” – Lucy M. (San Jose)

“Out cat, Scarlett, is usually looked after by friends when we are out of town. However, most have moved away and those who are local are busy with newborn babies of their own and we don’t want to burden them. It’s also been a busy year and we really haven’t left Scarlett in awhile so I was a bit anxious going out of town until we met Maria. Maria is amazing! She was very communicative, professional, and I can tell has a great love for cats. She sent us pictures and videos while we were away. Scarlett can be standoffish to strangers but she really took to Maria from the meet and greet. Maria made everything effortless and I would love to have her cat sit for us in the future.” – Lucy C. (San Jose)

“I meant to write this back in September. Anyway, I left my large Siamese with a couple different sitters and the match had never been quite right. I found the Comforted Kitty online and was impressed with the requirements of both pet guardians and sitters, as well as their thorough intake notes on my pet. Maria was wonderful during my three-day absence. She kept Felix busy, worked with his schedule, and I came home to a very happy, well-adjusted cat.” – Karen G. (San Jose)

“Maria was taking care of my 3 cats during the Thanksgiving holidays. This is the 2nd time I used the service this year. She went to my home at the specific time daily and performed the duty nicely. My timid feline girl Esme usually hides for a few hours when someone is visiting my home. But I was glad to see her came out and interacted with Maria on the first night! I think Maria formed a good bonding with them a few months ago when I first used the service. So this time Esme did not treat her as a stranger any more. From the video Maria took during the visit, I know I have a good sitter I can count on.” – Ben C. (San Jose)

“We’ve been using The Comforted Kitty for almost a year now for several trips both short and long. It has been such a great service, and a huge a relief to us as we’ve traveled. Our kitty has several health conditions and anxiety, our sitter Maria has been so incredibly kind and generous. Maria went out of her way to make sure our cat got every medication and cleaned a very messy litter box. She gives us very detailed updates and photos, and it has been so easy to communicate with her while we’re gone. The website has also been super easy to use. I would recommend this service to anyone, we’re so grateful for Maria and The Comforted Kitty!” – Lindsey T. (San Jose)

“It’s easy to book services on the app. Maria, the kitty sitter, does a great job with my playful Siamese hunk, Felix. She plays with him, keeps the litter box immaculate, and keeps me up to date via texts and photos. Felix really likes her, and I am very assured that my cat is well-cared for when I need to be away.” – Karen G. (San Jose)

“Our cat sitter moved out of state and we stumbled upon The Comforted Kitty for our two tabbies, we are very satisfied with our new cat sitter! They have a nice app where you can leave details on everything about your cat: food preferences, medical conditions, behavior, etc. The sitters leave a detailed report with pictures and videos after every sitting session which we appreciated a lot. Maria was our cat sitter and we’ll gladly have her take care of the kitties again for our next travel. She managed to bond even with our super shy little guy. Thanks Comforted Kitty!” – Lale S. (San Jose)

“I had to travel for 4 days and 3 nights and leave my little tuxedo cat, Oliver, alone for the first time. I found the Comforted Kitty through google and loved how quickly they responded. I had never used a petsitter that wasn’t a friend or family member, but Maria completely reassured me when we had our welcome visit. She was so kind and got down on the floor to immediately say hello to Oliver. Once I left, Maria would send daily updates with both pictures and video, I would constantly show to my family which annoyed them I’m sure. She would leave detailed messages of what she did, cuddling and playing with specific toys. She even showed me his clean cat food dish and full water bowl. On another day she brought him new toys to play with, which he loved. I could tell she did her best to make sure he got enough activity, stimulation and cuddles for the times she was there. After I got back, Oliver welcomed me home, but I’m sure he missed his new cat sitter Maria.” – Leanne M. (Milpitas)

“Maria took care of our two cats for a week. She communicated with us each day with photos of our fur babies. It was nice to take a trip and not worry about who was taking care of our kitties. I would highly recommend Maria and The Comforted Kitty.” – Stacy S. (San Jose)

“We are so glad that we had Maria & The Comforted Kitty watching our cats while we travelled for the holidays! Maria did an excellent job making sure our 2 cats had everything they needed, and kept us well informed throughout with lots of pictures and updates. She was always on the lookout for potential signs of stress/issues, which we appreciated. Maria was on top of everything! Communication leading up to the sitting and afterwards was super easy – Maria was super accommodating in finding a time to pick-up/drop-off keys to her. In the past we’ve boarded the cats when traveling, but that’s so much work (and more expensive!)… this was much better. We would love to have Maria back to watch our cats again the next time we’re traveling.” – Andrew K. (San Jose)

“Maria was awesome with Budgie! Budgie does not warm up to people very well. She is very skittish. But Maria was able to connect with her quickly and made the experience pleasurable for her. This made me feel better too! I would highly recommend Maria and she is now my go to for Budgie’s care while I am gone.” – Tl F. (San Jose)

“We are thrilled with the services provided by the comforted kitty. We could not be happier with the clear communication through their app, which is an easy way to pay invoices, make requests, update info, and text with your personal pet sitter. Our kitty sitter is Maria, and she is fabulous. I think this is the 4th time we will be requesting Maria. She follows our kitty’s routine and ensures she is happy and safe. She is available during their business hours via app chat function, when we have a special request during our time away, she goes above and beyond to accommodate. Bonus for the adorable photos she sends after every visit. We trust this company and plan to use it as long as we are in the Bay area. Thanks Maria, and thanks to comforted kitty!” – Sarah S. (San Jose)

“I needed a cat-sitter to look after my two kitties at home since they didn’t do very well at the cat boarders last time I went away. I was super nervous about leaving them in the house alone but Maria looked after them so well and they really warmed to her! Maria sent an update with photos every day and she was really flexible when the front door key didn’t work. The app is super helpful to stay in touch. I have no qualms about leaving my boys in the excellent care of Maria next time I leave town and am so relieved to have found this service!” – Sian A. (San Jose) 

“I had the pleasure of working with Dan and my sitter Maria was simply amazing! The arrangement was smooth, efficient, and everything was properly executed. My cats were very comfortable with Maria, and she took excellent care of them while I was out. One of the cats has medical needs and Maria was able to administer medications as requested. She was responsible, respectful of my property, and very kind and thoughtful to honor the requests I had. I was especially grateful for the daily updates as I could see how well they were doing in Maria’s care. My cats are like my kids, and I am extremely happy that I chose Dan’s business. I already booked my next appointments with them and I would highly recommend their services to my family, friends, and colleagues.” – Neko T. (Santa Clara)

“It was the first time we had a cat sitter from comforted kitty. We were overall highly impressed by the care and updates (photos, videos) that Maria, our sitter provided. The whole experience of signing up, scheduling a suitable time to meet Maria in person was smooth. We would definitely recommend and plan to hire them again. Thank you!” – Meghanath M. (San Jose)

Just wanted to let you know that Maria is truly exceptional, even by your company’s standard. Her communication was frequent and timely. She followed the instructions to the T. She gave my kitties a lot of pets and love and took wonderful photos. We always worry about the cats at home when we travel. But Maria made it so much easier for us this time. We are very grateful and look forward to inviting her back in the future. -Xiang W. (Mountain View)

Daniel H.
"I love cats because they are affectionate ,great companions and provide unconditional love."
Hi my name is Daniel. I have been an " animal person" my entire life. When I was young I lived in the country and had a menagerie of animals including cats, a dog, a horse, calves, rabbits and more. I have been a devout " cat person" since adopting Blackie Norton years ago. See the photo. I have lived in San Francisco for more than 40 years.I consider catsitting a labor of love. I love cats the most of all animals because they are warm intelligent and make me happy just to be around.
, California, The Comforted Kitty

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We have a super senior cat that really does not like to leave our home. In the past we had her boarded or ‘cat camped’ and she was miserable. Our cat sitter, Daniel was just what we needed for our trip to N. Carolina. He made daily visits, fed, tended litterbox, gave water, fed fish and took pics of Albi for us to see she was in great hands. I highly recommend this service.” – Kenneth N. (San Francisco)

“Our cat sitter Daniel took good care of my senior cat, who requires daily medication, and made sure to send updates every day. He paid close attention to feeding / litter box instructions and even kept my plants watered regularly.” – Tessa L. (San Francisco)

“Daniel with The Comforted Kitty did a great job caring for our cats! I’ve used The Comforted Kitty a few times over the past year and they have been amazing each time. We love getting pictures while we’re away, and Daniel did a great job providing a summary of each visit and a few photos to go along with it. They are communicative, easy to work with, and I know my cats are in good hands when I book with them. One of our cats can be pretty shy and Daniel was still able to gently coax him out of his hiding place and give him some much needed attention and treats. Highly recommend!” – Dana W. (San Francisco)

“I really appreciate Comforted Kitty and love how easy it is to work with them. Daniel has been our sitter over the last year and he is amazing, super down to earth, and overall a good human. He’s also such a good communicator and he really cares for my cat. I love his daily messages and pictures and I know my cat is happy and well taken care of while we are away. The peace of mind I have on my trips is really priceless in my opinion. Overall Comforted Kitty is a very professional and responsible company with fantastic pet sitters that I highly recommend to anyone.” – Samantha K. (San Francisco)

“Daniel was great to work with! He made sure to update me with pictures each day and had no problems with my energetic kitten. I can tell he really cares for the cats, and I would recommend this service to anyone looking for quality cat sitters!” – Carson R. (San Francisco)

“I’ve had Daniel as my sitter for my two senior cats two different times, and have had a very positive experience both times. My cats have asthma & require an inhaler, so I’m always a bit worried leaving them. Daniel made sure to confirm that he was doing the inhaler correctly, fed, them, cleaned the box, and then even took out my garbage for me before I got back! He checked in each day with pictures & updates. I’ll definitely be using Comforted Kitty again when I travel.” – Amanda K. (San Francisco)

“I’ve had the best experience working with The Comforted Kitty. Dan was the best. When I went away, my smoke detector batteries went out. Dan went the extra mile, bought batteries, contacted maintenance in my building and replaced the batteries himself – all so that my kitty wouldn’t be bothered by the constant beeping. He’s a gem! I highly recommend them!” – Sandra W. (San Francisco)

Gabriel M.
"I love that cats are very gentle and loving creatures that have such great personalities and never leave a moment uninteresting!"
Hello there! My name is Gabriel, and I am a cat care specialist and overall animal care enthusiast. I always like to say that I’ve known animals from a very young age because I was born into a house with three dogs and three cats. They had to get used to me as much as I had to get used to them, but we all got along very well! As I grew up I got into taking care of and foster sitting for kittens with my dad. We did it for a long time and ended up only adopting one if you can believe it! Since then I’ve had a lot of experience taking care of animals, I’d have to say mostly cats, so that’s where my forte lies! I’m very excited for the opportunity to care for your furry or non furry friends!
, California, The Comforted Kitty

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Highly recommend The Comforted Kitty! We were looking for a sitter for the holidays somewhat last-minute, and we’re so glad we found them! Our sitter Gabriel was the best! He was super communicative before and after each visit, sent cute photos of our two cats every day, and answered all of our questions thoroughly. He even offered house-sitting services like watering plants, taking out trash, bringing in mail, etc. The house was very clean upon our return, and our cats look like they were well cared for while we were away.I’d be happy to reach out to The Comforted Kitty again next time I have a trip planned.” – Wesley B. (Oakland)

“We were so afraid to leave our Rudy for the first time ever and then Gabriel the Super Cat sitter came along and solved all of that. He was Wonderful in every way. Rudy was Happy, we were Happy. Wonderful Job Gabriel. Thanks So Much! The Comforted Kitty Saved the Day.” – Ginger O. (San Leandro)

“We were going out of town and didn’t want to keep bothering our neighbors to check on our cat, so we decided to find our first official cat sitter. We found the Comforted Kitty on Yelp and were not disappointed. Gabriel was super communicative and seemed to genuinely care about our cat. The app is really easy to use and very comprehensive. It’s always hard to get used to having a relative stranger come into your home, but having our info like our alarm code in a secure place like the app was reassuring. I also appreciated that they are insured in case something goes wrong. Plus, the initial 15 minute consultation with Gabriel put us at ease. He sent very thoughtful daily updates and photos (when our shy girl wasn’t hiding!). I would use them again in a heartbeat.” – Natalie R. (San Leandro)

“Gabriel from the Comforted Kitty was the savior of my vacation sanity! I contacted The Comforted Kitty based on great reviews, and Dan put me in touch with Gabriel right away. Communications was timely, precise, and easy. Payment process was as convenient as can be. I got updates on my 2 crazy kitties every time Gabriel visited them. I was worried about my older kitty being less than reasonably friendly, but Gabriel came to “an understanding” with him so quickly that I was utterly amazed! Until The Comforted Kitty, I could never relax when I traveled, which always limited how long of a trip I could take before driving myself insane with worry. Now, I can count on The Comforted Kitty for peace of mind, and I’m already planning my next trip!” – Elisa Y. (San Francisco)

Angie M.
"What I love most about cats is how they set their boundaries and take time to gain your trust. I believe it is very special to build a bond with a cat for this reason! Cats have such unique personalities and I love watching those characteristics reveal as you build your relationship with cats. Plus, they are all so cute."
My name is Angie and I am looking forward to taking the best care of your fluffy friends. I am a lifetime cat owner and cat lover- my own cat is a sweet 2 year old girl named Moo. She is a fluffy tabby and white mix with the cutest green eyes and pink nose. She loves playing fetch with her squeaky toys and taking long naps in the window. My first cat Muffin was a beautiful Himalayan cat that I had since he was a kitten. My sweet boy Muffin lived a happy 21 years with me! The relationship I had with Muffin was foundational to me growing up and a huge reason why I continue to love cats so much to this day. A bit more about myself, I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I worked in the coffee industry as a barista throughout San Francisco and Oakland for many years but now I am focused on cat care! I have been a trusted cat sitter for many friends and neighbors for years. As a cat sitter, I have been responsible for giving cats daily medications and providing special care to some shy and reserved kitties. I love music, dancing and fashion. Creativity is a big part of my life and I enjoy trying new crafts and arts to express myself.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“For me the most important thing when looking for a catsitter for my cat is a reliable service and Comforted Kitty meets my expectations! I move frequently and over past few years Comforted Kitty found the best catsitter for my 11 years old kitty, Lila. Last time Lila’s sitter was Angie – my cat trusted her from the first visit – Angie is very gentle and understand cat’s language. My husband and I were gone for two weeks with the 9h time difference – how relieving it was receiving a full report about my cat’s day every morning! I am very happy that I found Comforted Kitty and I will definitely use their service in the future!” – Agata B. (Oakland)

“We’ve been using Comforted Kitty for a few years now and would never consider anyone else. Our sitter, Angie, is fantastic at taking care of our two cats, even though one is a shy guy. She sends us notes and photos during every visit, plays with their favorite toys, and even handles our complicated regimen of food and supplements. Booking is super easy and their rates are reasonable. You can even select the length of the visit and time of day, which is especially important for our cats who have a set dinner time and won’t let you forget it.” – Johnny A. (Oakland)

“We had a great first experience using Comforted Kitty for the very first time. CK was recommended to us by a trusted friend so we had high expectations and they totally delivered. Angie took such great care of our elderly cat and provided daily updates and pictures through the clear and easy-to-use app. Would definitely recommend this service to others and will be using again!” – Cheryl M. (Oakland)

"My favorite thing about cats is that they are independent but make the best companions. They don't need you to shower them in affection but they are most loving creatures once you gain their trust."
I always have had cats my whole life. My first cat's name was Maddy, and it was an instant connection! Since then, everyone knew that I would forever be a cat person. This led me into being the go-to cat sitter for my close family and friends as early as elementary school. As a way to make extra money throughout high school and college, I did cat sitting for many clients in my community for about 4 years. When I finished undergrad, I packed up my car with my current cat, BooBoo, and drove from Michigan to Oakland, CA for a job opportunity but found myself wishing I still did cat sitting on the side. I now work as a System Engineer, mainly working from home, so I get to spend all day with my pets and then get to go care for other's pets! My favorite part of cat sitting is when a shy cat finally becomes comfortable enough with me to let me pet and socialize with it, it's the most rewarding feeling!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Had a great experience with The Comforted Kitty, while I was recently out of town. My sitter, Josie, was easy to get in touch with, and kept me informed every day of how my cat was doing (sharing photos and any concerns). The service itself was very easy to use/set up, and responsive. I would definitely recommend!” – Erica T. (Oakland)

“Josie was great – easy to communicate with and very prompt with correspondence. And most importantly, my cat was relaxed, comfortable and happy when I got back! The app takes a little while to set up, but once you have all of the information in one place, you don’t have to constantly update things the next time you go out of town, etc. I recommend!” – Janette K. (San Francisco)

“Josie, from The Comforted Kitty, has provided my cat care service for years. Of course, she is reliable and competent. You have to be that to be in this business. But I also feel like Josie “cares” and makes sure both of my kitties are managing while I am gone.Also, over the years, one or the other (and sometimes both) have needed to be medicated and she has always handled that well. The app is super easy to use and communication is great. I get the cutest daily pictures while I am gone, which just eases my mind. I can’t say enough about Josie and the team at The Comforted Kitty!” – Letisha M. (Oakland)

“We have used Josie at the Comforted Kitty twice now and the service was surperb. The online booking system was easy to use and allowed me to easily provide essential data about care. I got a daily update on our cats status which was very comforting. Everything was handled exactly as I requested. I have used cat sitting services before and the Comforted Kitty is by far the best. It is a well-run business that does well for both it’s human and feline customers.” -Siobhan N. (San Francisco)

“Josie and Comforted Kitty provided excellent service and sent great pics of my cat. They sent wonderful updates and made me feel very comfortable. It was my first time using their service and will definitely use them again! Thank you!!” – Karen C. (San Francisco)

"Nothing makes me happier than hearing them purr and knowing they're happy. Just being in their vicinity makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside."
Hello! My name is Christy, and I look forward to meeting you and your furry family member(s)! I currently have cats of my own and have had several throughout my life, so I do believe I understand cats’ body language quite well. I have personal experience caring for a non-able-bodied kitty; if you need help with medications or expressing the bladder, I will be more than happy to share my experiences with you so that you can make it easier on your beloved kitty. I promise to care for your furry family member as if they were my own family: with respect, patience, and love. ***To Japanese speakers: I am bilingual (Japanese and English), if you would feel more comfortable speaking in Japanese.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We moved to the Bay Area last year and didn’t know what to do about cat sitting since we were new to the area. I decided to give Comforted Kitty a shot and boy, am I so happy I did! Christy has been watching our cats for almost a year now and she’s amazing! The cats love her! I love getting detailed reports and pictures while I’m away. Christy is a great communicator and I can’t recommend her enough. I truly feel at peace being away from my cats because I know they’re in great hands!” – Zonera J. (San Jose)

“Fantastic service. It takes a few minutes to fill out your cat’s info when singing up, but it’s worth it. Your sitter has all the info they need to take care of your cat while you’re away, including emergency info. They try to make sure you have the same sitter every time so your pet doesn’t have to deal with constant strangers. Christy is super friendly and my cats loved her. We had a video call beforehand as I didn’t have time to meet in person before leaving, great vibes and extremely capable. She made the process really easy and I felt comfortable being away knowing she was checking on (and playing with) my cats. Would recommend and will use again.” – Jessica X. (San Jose)

“Comforted Kitty has been amazing. They’ve been incredibly helpful when I’ve had to travel for work and family commitments, especially Christy. I’ve been very happy using this service and plan on continuing it.” – Jennifer H. (Santa Clara)

“We used The Comforted Kitty for the first time over the winter holidays. We have two (very shy) cats, and Kristy was our cat-sitter. She was very responsive and communicative, giving us daily updates on how our cats were doing. Our cats always hide when anyone comes over, so they didn’t come out when Kristy was there, but she was able to find their hiding spots to confirm they were OK. She also confirmed they were eating and using the litter boxes regularly. It was such a relief to have someone taking such good care of our cats while we were out of town, and we’ll definitely use this service again (in fact, we’ve already booked Kristy for our next vacation). I also really like the app that they use. You can provide all the details about each pet’s needs, and you get daily reports while you’re away. The app also makes it super easy to communicate with your cat-sitter.” – Liza C. (San Jose)

“I’ve had Christy watch my cat for two years now, and she’s phenomenal. She sends me timely reports of how my cat is doing along with photos to keep me updated. A lot of my comfort traveling for work is that Christy will be the one to look after my cat when I’m gone.” – Jen H. (San Jose)

“I needed someone who has experienced taking care of sick cats and I couldn’t find one on Rover. Almost cancelled my trip until I found The Comforted Kitty – Christy was a life saver! She patiently followed all my last minute request to treat wound and provide medication on top of all the other basic stuff. To add to that, their price is great and predictable compared to Rover and you can be assured that you’ll get someone with a lot of experience sitting cats!” – Syaza M. (San Jose)

“We have used this service for our past few trips, and I can’t imagine doing it any other way now. Gone are the days of having to hit up neighbors to catch sit. Christy has been amazing. Beyond just the feeding and litter, she spends quality time with our three cats and provides a complete report with pictures after every visit. And scheduling through the app couldn’t be easier. I highly highly recommend this service!” – Larry M. (Santa Clara)

“Just came back from a week long trip and this was the 2nd time using the service. We got lovely Christy again and having the same sitter was a huge plus. Christy already knew my cat’s routine, quirks and personality and it made it so much easier for my cat to quickly warm up to her. I have so much more peace of mind traveling now!” – Young C. (San Jose)

“We’ve used The Comforted Kitty on several of our trips now, some for when we were only gone for a weekend and most recently on a trip for when we were away for nearly 2 weeks. Christy has been our cat sitter each time and she’s gone above and beyond to make sure our cat was well taken care of. We get updates (messages and photos) each day and she was very responsive when we wanted to make sure mail was brought in from our apartment boxes on certain days, lights were turned on/off, etc. Christy followed our feeding, playing, and scooping routine to a T and we always came home to a happy and relaxed cat. Especially when we were away on our 2 week long trip it was nice to know someone was there every day. The prices are reasonable enough for us to justify twice daily visits for wet food feedings and adequate play time for our crazy energetic cat 🙂 We will continue to use The Comforted Kitty for any of our cat sitting needs!” – Katrina L. (San Jose)

“I recently used The Comforted Kitty when I was out of town for a long weekend. My cat Maxwell does not do well (understandably) being left alone for more than 2 days and it was such a relief knowing that he was taken care of by cat sitter Christy. Christy provided updates/pictures during her visits and overall was great to work with. She even set out my trash bins prior to trash pick-up day and brought in mail/packages that were delivered while I was gone. I look forward to using the Comforted Kitty next time I am out of town knowing Maxwell is in good hands! This service communicates in a clear/timely manner and their app makes it easy to keep everything in one place.” – Bridget B. (San Jose)

“Great pet sitting service! We have family out of state so we travel at least once a month. Our wonderful cat sitter Christy’s has been available every time! She’s so thorough, trustworthy and truly adores our kitty. I feel so comfortable with her and we really appreciate the daily pictures and updates. Highly recommend this service!” – Melanie H. (Sunnyvale)

“Hi Christy! We just got back earlier today from our trip. Thank you again for taking care of Alfred and Bruce. We can tell they were in good hands with you.” -Desmond T. (Campbell)

“Hi Christy, we just arrived home and can’t thank you enough! Xiao Bao is telling us all about the great week he had with you! We had a wonderful vacation and were fully relaxed knowing you take such great care of him! Aloha!” -Mark M. (San Jose)

Emily K.
"I love how cats are unapologetically themselves. And I love that they can be some of the greatest companions in life and yet also be some of the greatest teachers on how to live."
I have over 10 years of experience cat-sitting. While it’s now a paid job, it started out as a passion for caring for neighborhood cats while their families were away. I have experience feeding, cleaning, socializing and giving medication to cats, along with watering plants and bringing in mail. My visits have ranged from 20min-1hr, once or twice a day and sometimes overnight. I can’t imagine living life without cats. I have 2 of my own; I’m constantly learning from and finding companionship in their company. I also know what it feels like to leave them when I travel, and I want to make sure that your trip is the most comfortable it can be for both you and your cat.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We hired The Comforted Kitty to look after “Pickle” for 3 days. The entire process was efficient, highly automated via a website and easy to use mobile app and everything went off without a hitch. Emily, our sitter, came for an introduction visit, making friends with Pickle quickly, then sent detailed daily reports of her visits, including photos. Getting the photos every day helped us stay quite connected to our kitty. Upon our return Pickle was acting as if we hadn’t been gone more than a few hours, a testament to having someone visiting her. Everything we asked for was done, waste was in the outside bin, Pickle’s food and box area were well kept and vacuumed. We’ll be using TCK for life.” – Troy S. (San Francisco)

“My partner and I have used Comforted Kitty several times to provide cat sitting services while we travel. We’ve worked with both Cara and Emily, and they’ve both been great! They have been responsive, sending daily updates with pictures. I also like that we can request services online or in the app. In addition to feeding and taking care of the litter, they also make sure to play with our kitty and take care of the house plants as needed. Cara even offered to come and visit our cat an extra day when we were stuck due to airplane delays. All in all, definitely recommend the service.” – Evan M. (Oakland)

“Emily is the best and goes above and beyond the requested! She cleaned the bathroom floor as my cat makes a mess even without us pointing that out. Came home to a happy cat and clean bathroom. Couldn’t ask for more :)” – Brenda A. (Oakland)

“Can’t recommend highly enough! We were looking for a professional cat sitter to have a more dependable resource outside of family, friends or neighbors. The Comforted Kitty team did a great job responding quickly, offered a first time discount, matched us to the lovely Emily and coordinated a meet and greet with our cat before our trip. We were also really impressed by the app/tech behind The Comforted Kitty where you can share all the details relevant to your cat’s care, your home, etc and where your sitter can message you and share updates. A great experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a dependable sitter!” – Megan Z. (Walnut Creek)

“Emily has made great friends with my kitty! As an emotionally needy cat, she’s been great at reading his signals and making him feel loved and safe when we leave town. It’s definitely a relief to know he’s in good hands. Highly recommend!” – Stephanie H. (San Francisco)

“I have used Comforted Kitty to cat sit for my cat when I’m out of town several times and Emily has been fantastic each and every time! Frequent updates after each visit, lots of attention and play time, flexible when things come up (needing to swap food mid-trip for example), etc. Highly recommend!” – Andrew R. (Oakland)

“I highly recommend The Comforted Kitty service. Emily watch my cat when I was out of town for a few days and knowing there was someone checking on Momo gave me great peace of mind on my vacation. There were also updates sent to me after every visit, which was fun. I will definitely be using them next time I’m out of town.” – Danielle N.

“I contacted The Comforted Kitty with less than a week notice when I had to go out of town for a family emergency. They were fantastic and responsive and connected me with a sitter within 48 hours. I’m a bit of a nervous over-protective cat parent, and my sitter Emily set me totally at ease and was really fantastic. She took perfect care of my senior kitty (who requires several medications), sent pictures every visit, and even taught me some tricks to make sure my cat had a little extra enrichment and stimulation while alone. I’d recommend these folks without any reservations. Their app/website is also very well setup and makes communicating with your sitter and payment very easy and convenient.” – Justin W. (San Francisco)

“I love the comforted kitty. They’re always available to help me. I’ve worked specifically with Emily and she’s the best! She’s so sweet to my kitty and always makes sure to give me such detailed updates. Emily is super responsive as well. I’m so glad I found her and can trust her!” – Sophia A.

“Emily at the TCK did such an amazing job with my cats, and keeping me updated along the way. From pictures to detailed messages about how the cats were acting each day it was almost as if I was there! Not to mention bringing in mail and making sure things were okay around the place. I would recommend Emily as your next sitter for sure!” – Meekael H. (Oakland)

“This is a great service if you’re looking for a cat sitter. I was recommended this service when my usual sitter wasn’t available anymore and I really appreciated the sitters care and attention to my kitty. I was anxious about leaving him alone for a few days and Emily brought me great peace of mind and allowed me to enjoy my vacation a lot more. They sent me regular updates with pictures and a description of my cats behavior that night, which was so cute…I looked forward to receiving them every morning and night. I would definitely use and recommend this service to anyone looking for a cat sitter.” – Danielle N. (Oakland)

“I had a great experience with The Comforted Kitty. I previously left my kitty with family during trips, however, that option is no longer available. I needed a reliable sitter to use going forward. TCK has great reviews, is local, and specializes in cats, so I decided to give them a shot. The whole process was smooth. Great communication from the very beginning. You know exactly what to expect and they walk you through the whole process step-by-step. There is a website and app where you fill out info about your cat, your home, and all applicable instructions so that the sitter has them handy while you are away. You have a meet-and-greet with the sitter and walk them through the process, they meet your cat, keys are exchanged. By the time you leave, they know exactly what to do. All communication with the sitter happens through the site. Our sitter was Emily. She was great – polite, professional, and reliable. My kitty (Pacha) is very skittish and hid during meet-and-greet and through most of Emily’s visits. That was to be expected. I still got detailed emails and photos from each visit. Towards the end of the week, Pacha started coming out of her hiding spot and interacting with Emily. By the end of my trip, Pacha let Emily pet her belly. Throughout the whole process I was comfortable that Pacha is taken care of. Emily followed all of the instructions and stayed for the assigned time. Getting the keys back was easy as well. Emily left detailed instructions and I picked them up from her lockbox. We will definitely ask for Emily in the future.” – Marina S. (Oakland)

“My sitter Emily did a great job! She took care of my cat while I was out of town for 2 weeks, the longest I’ve been away from home since adopting her. The detailed daily updates and pictures made me feel better that my cat was in good hands. Communication was prompt and professional; I also appreciate the attention to detail in terms of how emergencies will be handled (fortunately did not have any on this trip). I’ll definitely use The Comforted Kitty again.” – Alex K. (Oakland)

“I’ve been a cat owner my whole life, but have never hired a cat-sitter before, instead relying on the help of friends. What an idiot I was. I can honestly say working with The Comforted Kitty is some of the absolute best money I’ve ever spent, and I only wish I’d done it sooner. I got a fast response when I sent an inquiry; the process is clearly laid out and then followed exactly. The app is clear and easy to use, and you can communicate with your sitter, pay your invoices, update your cat’s info, etc., at any time. Knowing all the information about your pet and their needs is in the app (including location of the cat carrier, who your vet is, and basically every detail you could need) in the event that you are unreachable gives so much peace of mind. My sitter was Emily, and she took really wonderful care of my old man while I was out of town. The photos she sent showed him playing or hanging out, totally comfortable and at ease. I smiled every time I received her updates. Knowing he’d eaten, used the litterbox, taken his medication, and gotten some play time and attention every day truly made me enjoy my trip so much more.” – Caitlin F. (Oakland)

“We’ve had a great experience with The Comforted Kitty. Invoicing and communication is a breeze through the patient portal. Our cat sitter, Emily, is wonderful! She is very professional and takes great care of our boys – both of whom are anxious and not the easiest of cats – one is special needs and requires daily medication while the other can create quite a few messes while we’re gone. Her daily reports are detailed and Emily is very proactive about raising any potential concerns. She really helps us feel at ease when we are not at home. Highly recommend The Comforted Kitty and Emily!” – J.L. (Oakland)

“I got home yesterday evening and Mork and I had a happy reunion. Thank you for your attentive care of him, and of the house, this week. We really appreciate all the communication, especially the photos! You get some great action shots of him. I’ll be in touch next time we’re out of town.” -Laura R. (Oakland)

“We just got home and are very happy to see the cats. Thank you so much for the attention and care that you gave to Starbuck & Hicks while we were away. We really appreciate all of the reports and great pictures! You really made our trip stress free! Thank you again for all that you do! We look forward to having you take care of Starbuck & Hicks in the future.” -Nathaniel C. (Oakland)

"What I love most about cats is their pickiness and silly preferences that confuses every cat parent, yet we cater to our cats because we love them unconditionally."
Greetings cat parents! My name is Ronnie. I provide cat care services to clients all over the East Bay, from Pinole to Oakland. I am a cat mom myself of 2 adult female felines, and have been caring for them since they were tiny kittens. When they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I knew “crazy cat lady” would best fit my dream job description. Thanks to my own 2 fur babies and Dan at TCK, I’ve had the greatest opportunity and experience to welcome many more feline friends into my life, and meet other like-hearted cat people that help me become a better cat mama and caregiver. Outside of being a cat care specialist, I manage my small online business where I make handmade spiritual jewelry. Some days I vendor at music shows, skateboarding events, or at Lake Merritt. I also love to spend time in nature, meditate and go thrift shopping. I enjoy creating, being involved in my community and a positive impact in people's lives. I became a cat care specialist because of my love for cats and it is my passion to provided reliable care and make life easier for others. I hope to meet you and your fur babies soon!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“My cat loves when Ronnie, from The Comforted Kitty, looks after her when I’m away. Ronnie is patient and had “the right vibes” for my cat to get comfortable with her (she’s a bit nervous around… everyone except for me) and now she is! I know that Ronnie will look after my cat and space in a way that I appreciate! I also love the updates and pictures while I’m away. I will always choose The Comforted Kitty.” – Lucy C. (Berkeley)

“Best cat sitters around! Ronnie and Denisse have both been wonderful and amazing cat sitters. Both of my kitties are 12 hrs old and are still quite active and like to play. My boy (Kairo) can be shy at first and doesn’t warm up to everyone. This can be challenging because I need a cat sitter that can get close enough to him to give him his medicine. Well, after just 3 visits with either Ronnie or Denisse, he was comfortable enough to go up to them and purr and rub up against their legs. They have both been very punctual, follow all my instructions, stay the stated length of time, are great communicators and send tons of pictures. In addition, I’m happy to pay the current fees because the sitters not only take great care of my kitties and home but also because Comforted Kitty carries industry-leading and expansive commercial liability insurance and bonding policy specific to the pet sitting industry. I’ve used other less professional company/individuals and they don’t deliver the services promised and it just causes more stress when I’m away and I don’t get to relax. With Comforted Kitty sitters, I go on vacation happy and relaxed knowing my kitties and home are in good hands!!! Thank You !!!” – Patty C. (Richmond)

“Ronnie was excellent. She was a natural with the cats; she went above and beyond in taking care of their food; and she was responsive, friendly, responsible, and professional.” – Raymond D. (Richmond)

“I can’t say enough good things about our cat sitter Ronnie from The Comforted Kitty! She took excellent care of our cat and I loved getting daily updates and pictures from her. She really went above and beyond and offered to bring in our mail, put out our garbage cans for pick up, and really helped us out by watering both our indoor and outdoor plants. It was such a relief knowing our cat was in good hands, and that there was someone keeping an eye on things while we were away. I will definitely use their services again!” – Kate S. (Berkeley)

“Ronnie was wonderful! She sent adorable pictures everyday of our cat and gave specific details of her time spent. Highly recommend.” – Christina M. (Albany)

“Ronnie from the Comforted Kitty took care of our two cats for two weeks over the Christmas and New Years holiday. She provided excellent service and sent a detailed report and pictures every day. Our older cat can be a bit cantankerous, but she won him over with patience, kindness, and treats (of the same brand we use to ensure nothing upset his stomach). Both cats were happy, healthy, and very loving when we returned, a stark contrast to when we’ve boarded them in the past and they spend several days ignoring us. We will definitely be using this service again.” – Kathryn N.

“We live in Antioch and am so glad we have a Comforted Kitty sitter nearby. Claire was professional, warm, prompt, and communicative. I appreciate the above and beyond actions of this company. Claire turned on lights we forgot, brought in packages/mail, and even helped with trash day. Our cat, Salem, was comfortable with her and well loved while we were away. I appreciated the text messages of updates and photos of our little ones. Claire and Dan were easy to get ahold of and empathetic to some pets we lost before our time away. Lastly, I love how easy and user-friendly their portal is including requesting visits, paying, and tipping. We loved Claire so much we have requested THREE more sessions for our upcoming trips this fall and spring. Thank you all!” – Katrina P. (Antioch)

“I just wanted to give a shout to The Comforted Kitty and our cat caretaker Claire Graham. Claire did a magnificent job taking care of our fur babies and kept us posted while we were on vacation with texts and photos. We had a great experience and highly recommend this business and individual caregiver. Great job done!” – Steven C. (Antioch)

Tracey N.
"What I like most about cats is their unpredicted behavior - one moment they’re smothering you with attention and the next moment, they’re full of sass."
I became a cat owner six years ago when I had the opportunity to adopt a cat after completing my undergraduate degree and enter the working world as an adult. Since my cat has become my companion, I started to care for my sister’s cat, friends’ cats, and visit cat shelters. Now, I can be found hanging out with cats at parties. I feel that nurturing and caring for humans and animals, especially cats come naturally to me. Other than caring for cats, I work as a registered dietitian and previously coached gymnastics. I know I have an obsession with cats when I have an album personally dedicated to all the cat photos I take. Tracey happily serves cities across the South Bay, including Santa Clara, North San Jose, Downtown San Jose, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Milpitas, Campbell, Cupertino, Los Gatos, and Los Altos.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We had Tracey watch our kitty for a week while we were out of town and she was great! We will definitely be using The Comforted Kitty again! When you first sign up you are assigned a cat sitter, and you do a meet-and-greet prior to your time away. This was really helpful as it allowed us to show Tracey exactly where food/cleaning supplies/toys/etc were located as well as other little things such as how to use the water filter on our sink. It also allowed our kitty to meet her which was really helpful as she can be shy around strangers! Tracey was so sweet and gentle with kitty cat that by the end of the visit she was accepting treats out of Tracey’s hand. During our vacation, Tracey sent us updates and tons of photos which we looked forward to each day. When we arrived back home our place was tidy and our kitty seemed very happy and very soft and fluffy (Tracey brushed her everyday!). It was such a relief to know that our cat and home were in such good hands while we were away!” – Natalie P. (Sunnyvale)

“Despite the fact that our cat is pretty shy around strangers, she seemed to warm up to Tracey almost immediately. Tracey was very reliable and professional, and we knew our cat was in great hands. In addition to taking care of the usual cat chores Tracey spent a lot of time bonding with our cat, playing games and making sure that our cat got quality time with a person while we were away. It was a highlight every day to receive the cute photos she sent us! Seeing our cat was happy and taken care of was a huge comfort.” – Konstantin B. (San Jose)

“Tracey was wonderful when I asked her to cat sit while I was out of town. My cat opened up to her and Tracey was caring and gentle. She was easy to communicate with and kept me informed on a daily basis.” -Will G. (San Jose)

“Omg thank you so much for this! We miss her so much so hearing her little purrs was just what we needed 🥹 thank you for working your magic with Moira and with the ants!!” -Emily L. (Santa Clara)

Mary P.
EAST BAY
I sit and I watch in wonder, a cat’s beauty: their grace, their curious nature, their playful ways. To hold a cat is to feel all the days stress leave your mind and body, to lightly squeeze one is to experience the feeling where all is, again, right in my own little corner of the world.
During Mary's very happy early childhood, she moved around a bit throughout The United States and Canada and, in 1973, her family finally settled down in Fairfield, CA. Mary's mother, coming from a country that worships cats, naturally started taking care of our neighborhood stray and feral cats and she began to naturally help her. Mary's passion and fondness for animals, especially cats, grew from there. She had numerous fish, pet hamsters and a gorgeous German Shepherd/Collie mix dog named Rocky. As a student-athlete, she graduated from CSU, Sacramento earning a dual BA in Biology and Psychology and competed on the Women’s Tennis Team. Her college years were, sadly, pet free but that all changed one stormy night when she took in a kitten crying outside her door. From that night forward it has been non-stop spaying, neutering and vaccinating of stray and feral cats in her neighborhood and the nightly feeding of her community cats. She has been fortunate to have found good homes for many kittens and cats and one very good dog. Any cat that comes to her, stays with her if she is not able to find them the right home. Mary has also reunited a few lost dogs to their owners and welcomed an occasional opossum to hang out with her. She has spent most of her work life as a medical assistant and in retail customer service. Mary currently volunteers one afternoon a week with The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA. She enjoys attending numerous types of sporting events, especially tennis down in the Palm Springs area. Mary happily services the Vallejo/American Canyon and San Leandro areas and looks forward to meeting your kitties!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We recently moved to a new area and had no one local to watch our kitty. I search the Google and found Comforted Kitty, the reviews are legit! After submitting my request, I was connected with Mary who would be our sitter. She swung by the house to meet our kitty Coconut, he came out right away to greet her which is a good sign! I love the app that accompanies the service, Mary sent me photos and updates of how much Coconut ate and how he was doing. She even grabbed our mail and packages off the porch. Made us feel so much better leaving him for the first time in a new house.
Honestly the perfect sitter service, I wasn’t worried about our kitty and knew he was in good hands. Thank you, Mary! – Andriana G. (San Francisco)
We moved to a new city last year and needed to find a cat sitter. Came across The Comforted Kitty via an internet search and have used them ever since! We were paired with Mary who has been wonderful, she genuinely cares about the wellbeing of our kitties and provides photos and notes for every day we’re gone. I feel like we have a friend watching the house and kitties when we leave! The cats have responded well to having the same sitter each time, their stress levels are much lower when we leave for vacations. Thank you so much Mary and Comforted Kitty for the great care!” – Andriana G. (Vallejo)

“When my Gracie needed, for 6 months, daily medication for her lung condition and I was unable to provide this consistent care for her, Mary, with no hesitation, offered to take her home and care for her. Gracie never missed a dose, fully recovered and I was able to enjoy life with her for an additional 12 wonderful years.” -Leonard P. (Vacaville)

“We did make it home to the kitties– thank you again for looking (and cleaning up) after them while we were away! So happy that they feel so comfortable with you!” -Michele S. (Vacaville)

Jim M.
SITTER (EAST BAY)
“What I like most about cats is the love they give once you’ve earned their trust. They also have a look in their eye that reminds me they are never completely domesticated. They are beautiful and majestic and I think they’re wonderful.”
Like many people who’ve chosen to get into Pet Services, Jim had pets all his life. When he was young, his family had dogs, when he moved out and got an apartment got a few snakes and a bearded dragon (because he couldn’t have a dog or cat). Over fifteen years ago he got his first cat when he started feeding Sammie, an abandoned juvenile at his apartment in Oakland and ever since he’s been in love with them. Currently Jim has two cats, and a bearded dragon who he loves dearly and are part of his family. Over the years he’s helped take care of other people’s pets which included having to administer medications and take care of house chores. He believes that our pets are a part of our families and will take care of your loved ones like they are his own. Some interesting things Jim has done is run the SF Marathon, biked around Lake Tahoe, and traveled Europe for six weeks. He also enjoys camping, hiking, and is studying Spanish and also working on a little French. He teaches English to Colombian Students once a week via the internet as well. He happily services cities across the upper East Bay.

“I highly recommend Jim as a pet sitter. First of all I can tell he’s taken care of all the tasks, litter box etc.., I also know my pets like him, and that he plays with them. When I get home the pets have a good demeanor, and I can tell he has brushed them, and given them the attention they need.”
– Julie S. (Richmond)

“Thank you, Jim! Safe and sound, and the cats are also. They warmed right back up and it was clear you took excellent care of them even though they were a bit too nervous to greet you. We really appreciate it and will definitely get back in touch if we need help again!” -Diana L. (El Cerrito)

“Thank you Jim. We’re home now and everything looks great. Kitties are hanging out with us, happy. We will be traveling again in a couple months and will definitely be in touch. Again, thanks so much!” -Callie D. (Richmond)

“Jim takes great care of our cats Fluffy and Ginger, and makes sure to keep us informed. We always have peace of mind and he’s never let us down.” – Steph R. (Albany)

“Jim our sitter! He is so passionate, caring and has high integrity for this work. Our cat LOVES him!” – Cary J. (Oakland)

“Jim did a really great job taking care of our two cats. When we returned, they were happy and healthy and didn’t seem to miss us at all 🙂 That’s a good sign! Thank you!” – Katherine P. (El Cerrito)

Sarah L.
SITTER (CONTRA COSTA COUNTY)
“What I love most about cats are their personalities and individual uniqueness of each cat. You can’t treat all cats the same because each one has their own set of behaviors, personalities, and habits, much like humans.”
Sarah has been the proud owner of a fuzzy feline, Millie for 12 years and counting. After adopting her from Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), she started to volunteer there on weekends. Sarah eventually became a cat care specialist and would socialize the shelter cats, observe their behavior, and look for ways to create a bond between human and wild feline. In her spare time, Sarah likes drawing and sketching animals, hiking, and watching funny cat videos while her cat (AKA: her personal assistant) keeps her lap warm. She happily serves cities across central Contra Costa county.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We love using The Comforted Kitty for our cat sitting needs! It is so easy to book with Dan. He really goes above and beyond with what you need and is extremely professional. We absolutely love our sitter Sarah and are so happy with her work. She is extremely communicative while we are away and sends great photos. We continue to use them for every single trip we take and I highly recommend them to anyone else looking for a sitter. Thank you Dan and Sarah!” – Nicole M. (Concord)

“We have received nothing but the best care from The Comforted Kitty. We were matched with Sarah in our area and she is exceptional. We have used Sarah and Comforted Kitty for every one of our trips away and we know our cats are in amazing hands. We have made some changes, got a new cat, always have an update or two and Sarah is always happy to oblige and follows through with everything. The communication is amazing, every update is so heart warming and extra cute and it is just the best feeling knowing our kitties are so loved and so well taken care of. Can’t recommend enough!” – Sara D. (Concord)

“My cat liked Sarah immediately during our meet and greet. Sarah asked all the right questions and took notes regarding what needed to be done during her upcoming visits (cat’s needs, watering, trash pickup etc). Sarah came at about the same time each day and followed up with a report and photos each time. My cat was happy when I arrived home and I would definitely use this service again 🙂 – Carol B. (Walnut Creek)
We are very happy with The Comforted Kitty and our sitter Sarah. Everything has been very smooth, from our initial contact with the owner to meeting with Sarah and all her visits. She is great at communicating and taking care of our two kitties. The use of the Time to Pet portal makes everything very easy, from scheduling, leaving detailed information about our cats, making payments, and sending and receiving communications. We highly recommend The Comforted Kitty and Sarah!” – Jeanne (Walnut Creek)

“Sarah is a really great pet sitter! She followed all the instructions left and even took the mail in for us!” -Jennifer S. (Concord)

Cynthia P.
"What I love most about cats (besides cuddling with them) is how attuned they are to their owners. They sense our emotions and will come to us when we need comfort the most. There's nothing better than coming home to the love of a cat (or cats) especially after a bad day!"
Cynthia was born & raised in Sacramento and has had cats in her home since she was born so she can't help but have so much love for them! She has been cat-sitting since she was a teenager, but have been doing it professionally for the past 2 years. Cynthia earned her Bachelor degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education from CSU Northridge. She spent 15 years living in Los Angeles as professional dancer & choreographer working at both Disneyland and Universal Studios and also worked as a middle school fitness and performing arts teacher. Now back in Sacramento, Cynthia works as an in-home caregiver to children with special needs and owns & runs an L.A. based dance entertainment company. Cynthia is a single mom to her 11-year-old son, and they are both fortunate to have 4 cats in their family- Dipsy, Nala, Monkey, and Princess! She enjoys supporting Sacramento's pro sports teams by attending Rivercats and Kings games as much as she can! Cynthia is Pet First Aid certified and Pet CPR trained through the American Red Cross. She looks forward to meeting you and your cat(s)!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“This was our first time hiring The Comforted Kitty and definitely not our last. We searched for local and reliable cat sitting services and found The Comforted Kitty. The app they use is nice — customers can enter all the important information such as medical related issues beforehand. There was a meet-and-greet session to meet our sitter, Cynthia, a few days before our trip. Cynthia is absolutely a very sweet and thorough cat sitter- she’d communicate via the app whenever she visited. Much to our surprise, my super-shy cat came out and interacted with Cynthia during her sitting (which means she was comfortable around Cynthia)! We are very satisfied with the service and will definitely recommend The Comforted Kitty and Cynthia to anyone who may need cat sitting.” – Cherie K. (Sacramento)

“Hey there. I’m a review reader, too. I wanted to write this review for my new amazing catsitter Cynthia from the Comforted Kitty because I know how it feels to be looking for the just right person to care for my beloved but very shy cats when I’m away. I also read a LOT of reviews before I decided to try out The Comforted Kitty. I booked with Cynthia, and she was absolutely FANTASTIC with both of my cats. Her genuine love and respect for animals shines through and within a day she was petting and playing with my older kitty Pippi and by the next day she was able to pet Tulip as well. Considering how super freaky shy both my girl kitties are, that is some great kitty whisperer magic!! I also appreciated how professionally managed The Comforted Kitty is. I felt better that they insist on being thorough in learning everything about your cat before you meet with your catsitter for the first time, from your cat’s favorite toys and foods to who their regular vet is should a visit be needed while you’re away. Cynthia messaged me on the app every day I was away with photos and updates that really put my mind at ease and even confirmed with me when I finally arrived home from my trip just in case she needed to extend her time caring for Pippi and Tulip if my flight had been delayed. Now I know my cats will be in great hands whenever I travel. If you’re on the fence I recommend giving them a try!” – Fawn M. (Sacramento)

“My cat sitter Cynthia was AMAZING. She sent me pictures every day that I was gone and even made a video of my cat chasing the laser pointer. I highly recommend The Comforted Kitty!” – Morgan P. (Sacramento)

“Cynthia was an AMAZING cat sitter. She took such good care of my kitties and sent heartwarming updates and pics. She’s also extremely knowledgeable and went the extra mile for my cats. You can tell she loves cats. The service is top notch and the app makes the process easy. I will be using them again. Highly recommend!” – Arlene B. (Sacramento)

“Cynthia did an excellent job looking after our kitties during our vacation before New Year’s Eve. She made sure the cats had a lots of company after she fed them. I would definitely recommend her services for a pet sitting.” – Bridget N. (Sacramento)

Diane W.
Hi, it’s Diane taking this back over. I grew up with cats and dogs. I have had 4 cats and 2 rabbits in my 20 adult years. I worked for a cat rescue for 4 years that really helped me learn so much about cat behavior, needs, medical issues/care and so much more. I am slowly TNRing cats in my own neighborhood. I have always had a soft spot for cats. I can’t save them all but I can definitely help care for your fur baby.

Tracy P.
What I love most about cats is their playful nature and unique personalities. I currently care for 18 barn kitties and they are absolutely entertaining every time I hang out with them. Some are super friendly while others are pretty much feral but they all have a special place in my heart.
Hello. My name is Tracy. I've lived on a hobby farm my entire life raising horses, dairy goats, chickens, dogs, and cats. I love all animals though and also have experience with livestock, reptiles, birds, and fish. As a pre-teen/teen I participated in the Horse and Dairy Goat projects in 4-H where I learned all aspects of care from vaccinations and wound care to delivering, raising, and training babies. I've been pet and ranch sitting for about 20 years now and am always happy to provide my clients with piece of mind so they can enjoy their time away without worrying about their furry or feathered friends. I'm a paralegal by trade and in my spare time I enjoy gardening, sewing, snowboarding, paddling, and horseback riding.

Carly W.
Hello! My name is Carly & anyone who knows me knows I’m a cat lady. My love for felines started at a young age, as I grew up with cats always in the home. I have loved and cared for my own kitties over the years as well as cats of friends & family as if they were my own. I’m experienced in administering shots, medication, feeding, cleaning litter box spaces & of course playing. I’m very conscious of the fact that cats must trust you deeply before they give you attention or play so I make sure that they are as comfortable as possible with me while in my care. I currently am the proud mother of two fluffy cats of my own, Figaro and Tolouse. They are my world & I love how affectionate they are with each other & the family, not to mention how much they keep us entertained! I know when I’m away from home, having someone who loves my kitties as if they were their own means the world to me, so I’d love to give you the same sense of ease!

Maila P.
Hi there! My name is Maila. I'm a huge lover of all animals, but cats have always had a special place in my heart. I have a sweet little fur girl myself, her name is Majical, and she means everything to me. One night after a long day, I was unloading my groceries and after I brought in the last bag, I turned around to go shut the front door, and I noticed there was a cat sitting in my living room staring at me. Like magic, she appeared out of nowhere and that is how she got her name Magical. I had never seen her around before so it must of been the big flashing sign on my forehead that said 'cat lover' and she quickly grabbed her things and moved right in. With that being said, I know and understand the feeling of being away from your fur baby for any amount of time can be hard. We wonder what they are doing, are they ok, do they miss us, and depending on the time of year it is, will the Christmas tree still be standing when I get home. I'm happy to help relieve some of the anxiety you may have. I love playing with kitties, brushing them, and giving them their favorite treats. I also recognize that each cat is different with their own personality and things they like and dislike. If your cat is on the shy side I will talk to them and let them come to me as they feel more comfortable. During my visit, I'm more than happy to take pictures and send them along with my visit updates if that is something you would like. I'm excited for this opportunity to get to know you and take care of your sweet fur baby. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Annette M.
"My favorite thing about cats is when you find them curled up sleeping. They are always so adorable asleep, especially when you see them in the most random places; laundry baskets, cupboards, or even on top of the fridge."
Hello! My name is Annette, and I adore cats. I love all animals, but I have always had a special place in my heart for our feline overlords. Growing up, my mother had a sign saying, "a house is not a home without a cat," and I agree wholeheartedly. Cats come in many different personalities, and I love getting to know these individual personalities when I cat sit. When I was young, we had two Siamese siblings (Sanjin & Lily) who were the personification of the "we are Siamese if you please" cats from Lady and the Tramp. Later on, we had a large fluffy cat named Dan, who did nothing but sleep all day and shed (he was awesome). I understand that even though cats are very self-sufficient, they still need care and attention when their owners are away. I have been pet-sitting for family and friends my whole life, and I have experience administrating most medication forms. Including; oral medications (pill & liquid), topical (such as flea medication), and subcutaneous and intramuscular injections. I currently live in West Sacramento with my cat Percy, a very fancy and distinguished gentlemen. He is a British Shorthair, and I rescued Percy earlier this year. He just turned one back in May!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“The comforted kitty has been a lifesaver for me. I travel often and sometimes with short notice and they are flexible with my last minute requests. Annette has been my sitter and she always does such a good job with my kitties. She plays with them and makes sure they have supplies and a clean potty area. I definitely recommend using their services so your pets can stay in their home environment which is comfortable for them. I will continue to use Comforted kitty and am happy to know they service different locations throughout California.” – Ebony J. (Sacramento)

“This was our first time using the services of not only The Comforted Kitty but also a pet sitter in general. So we weren’t sure what to expect and was a little nervous. Our experience with The Comforted Kitty from start to finish was great! Dan was quick to respond confirming availability and in answering our questions. The instructions to pay was detailed and easy to follow. We had an introductory call with our assigned sitter, Annette. Annette had such a warm and friendly reaction to seeing our Kitty Girl for the first time that we knew our baby was in good care. Thank you Annette and The Comforted Kitty!” – Frank R. (Sacramento)

Mariah P.
"I love the wide range of personalities cats have and how you need to earn their affection, it makes the bonds and relationships built with them feel so much more important."
My name is Mariah, I am 25 and I have worked with animals most of my life. I spent two years working with Banfield pet hospital, where I was trained as a veterinarian assistant, and worked at Top Dog Grooming. From those experiences I have learned many things from how to trim kitty nails to medicating and administering injections. I have also spent a lot of time volunteering at local animal centers. I have two cats at home, six year old Stormy and three year old Mac! Stormy is a lynx point Siamese, and Mac is an orange tabby. Those two live along side a rabbit named Spoox and a small Menagerie of birds. My favorite pastime is playing with my pets and being around animals.

"I love the many ways cats express themselves with different sounds. It's so sweet to hear a cat purr for pets...or meow to announce it's time for treats! :)"
Candice has over 20 years of experience as a veterinary technician, pet sitter, and cat mom. She has provided nursing care to many animals including rabbits, sheep, pigs, and horses. Cats are her absolute favorite patient and pet! She has also been a proud caregiver to dogs, turtles, a hedgehog, and many foster kittens. She currently lives with her rescued cat, Yuki, who loves to play, cuddle, and relax to music. Candice specializes in animal enrichment and behavior. She has fun creating DIY cat toys and cozy cat corners! When she’s not working, you’ll typically find her taking pictures of nature, reading a good book, or organizing a cabinet like Marie Kondo. Candice is happy to comfort kitties in The San Fernando Valley and surrounding areas!

"What I love most about cats is that they make you earn their love so when you finally get it it feels so much more special."
I’ve loved cats since adopting my first stray at 4 years old. Her name was Lally and we were bff’s. Since then, I’ve pretty much always had a cat in the house. I’ve even had 2 boyfriends give me cats as a birthday presents. The cats were in my life much longer than the boyfriends. Today, I am a freelance Makeup Artist from the Philippines who decided to make LA her home 3 years ago. My husband and I haven’t had a chance to get our own pet yet but catsitting allows me to get my cuddle fix and boost of seratonin.

“Amanda was a wonderful sitter who I would trust again and again. I have a cat who is getting older and is experiencing some health concerns and Amanda gave amazing peace of mind that all of her medication needs were being met. I could tell from the moment she walked in as she took detailed notes that she cared about my animals and wanted to get everything right. Also when flights were being cancelled she was gracious and kind to do an extra day last minute while we found a way home.” – Jodie W. (Los Angeles)

“Amanda took great care of Ernest, who seemed content and well-adjusted when I got home after several days away. I loved receiving photos of their cozy time together, and was impressed by how much Amanda really went above and beyond. She re-filled Ernest’s automatic feeder, took out the trash, changed his litter, and brought in all of my packages. A wonderful service and warm team!” – Aimee C. (Los Angeles)

Kaitlyn Z.
"I love being able to spend time with a cat and learning their little quirks! Every cat is so unique and deserves to be cared for like they are."
Hi! My name is Kaitlyn and, like many others, I am an animal lover with my favorite leaning heavily towards cats. I currently have 3 cats of my own but the one pictured above is my oldest boy, Simba. I promise he really does like wearing that sweater. All of my cats have been shelter babies and have the funniest personalities. I have 12 years of experience owning and fostering different types of animals with pet sitting experience sprinkled in. My own cats are very different and require individualized care which makes me comfortable with all sorts of fur babies and their needs. My favorite activity during a visit is catching candid shots. The goofy ones are always my favorite. Outside of cats, my favorite things include: dancing, watching movies, and reading. I would love to hear any recommendations for a good book!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We came to The Comforted Kitty very last minute after our Rover contractor no-call no-showed to our meet and greet, and it was an upgrade in every possible way. Rather than an uber-style independent contractor who you’re just rolling the dice on, The Comforted Kitty finds a qualified, capable, and RELIABLE sitter for you, asks all the right questions to make sure your cats are well taken care of, and is incredibly responsive for anything else you might need. Couldn’t recommend them more highly. Our sitter – Kaitlyn – was kind, communicative (we got a heap of pictures daily!), went above and beyond, and our cats absolutely adored her. It was an enormous relief not to have to worry about things falling through because I am confident that if something came up, The Comforted Kitty would quickly source someone to fill in. Easily five stars.” – Billy J.

Lindsay O.
“I love how each cat has their own unique purrsonality, quirks, and likes/dislikes. It’s fun getting to know each one. Plus, it’s impossible to feel upset or stressed when you have a purring cat on your lap. There’s an old proverb that says if you put a cat in a room full of broken bones, the bones will heal. Contented cats definitely have a calming and healing presence.”
Hi, I’m Lindsay! I’m originally from Upstate New York, and I have always been an animal lover. I grew up with both dogs and cats, but preferred cats because they are just so cute and funny! I have lived in several different places, but moved to Los Angeles in 2015 to attend graduate school at UCLA. My husband and I currently have 3 cats: Broadway, Layla, and Kismet, and they bring so much joy to our lives. Besides cats, I love history, archaeology, and travel and have been on archaeological digs in Egypt, Israel, Greece, and Turkey. On digs, friends have often laughed at me for carrying cat food and extra water in my bag to feed any strays that I came across. I even found an abandoned black kitten on an archaeological site in Turkey a few years ago and adopted him! When I’m not caring for my cats (or yours!), I like exploring the city, going to museums and parks, and doing arts/crafts, especially cross stitching and weaving… and my cats love to “help” me with those activities because they can’t resist any type of string!

Gail L.
"I love cats for all the ways they show you they love you; like, sitting on your face while you sleep, doing cardio on a toilet paper roll, scattering carefully collated papers on the floor, bringing me all sorts of "gifts" [mostly still alive] from their catio, and my favorite, performing Matrix style moves across all the most valuable possessions in the house."
I have been taking care of all kinds of critters virtually my whole life. Beginning with my experiences growing up on a farm, I have had the responsibility of taking care of cats, dogs, horses, and a variety of farm animals. I have also had the experience of working in an animal hospital and a wildlife care center where I picked up a wealth of knowledge and skills; for example, administering medications, cleaning and dressing wounds, and closely observing cats for any signs of distress or illness [especially since they are very good at hiding any evidence of pain or injury]. I have deep respect and love for all animals; this has included efforts to save wild horses [mustangs] and burros as well as assist in the annual whale count of both greys and humpbacks along the coasts of California and Maui. Working with raptors, small mammals, various birds, and reptiles gave me the knowledge and experience of how fragile the lives of urban wildlife can be. [RIP P-22] I am currently volunteering at a horse rescue and farm animal sanctuary, and live with 4 cats and two rescue horses. While I did love my career in education, my retirement from teaching has given me the time to devote to the compassionate care of cats. As any cat owner [I mean, human owned by cats] will tell you, these are mystical, graceful, sometimes stubborn, both arrogant and affectionate, goofy, highly intelligent, mischievous, and utterly devoted creatures. I have been blessed to have shared my life with so many wonderful felines -- all unique and special in their own ways. But each has taught me so much and brought me more joy than I could have imagined possible.

"I truly believe cats must be smarter than humans. Just look at their lifestyle; they know how to live the good life."
Cat sitting is the best work ever! I love walking into work to kitties who are happy to see me. Are they hungry? Yeah, there's that. But then they hang out with me after they eat too. And there's the purring and head butts, and they rub up against me. It's the best job ever! After that, I feel honored to clean their litter box to help keep them happy and healthy. I grew up with cats, dogs, a turtle, fish, and horses. I love all the furry and not-so-furry creatures! Some of my best memories center around animals. I am the lucky caretaker of two kitties who have taught me how to live a happier and more relaxed life, full of naps and stretches and cuddles. When I am not cat sitting, I enjoy making and designing jewelry, taking photographs, being in nature, cooking, and watching movies.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“This was the first time using a cat sitter as I am usually only away from the cats for a few days at a time. Thanksgiving vacation was over a week and so I reached out to Comforted Kitty after reading all the glowing reviews. My sitter, Tess, is amazing! We set up a zoom meet-and-greet and right away I knew she would be perfect. She was talking to me while feeding a tiny kitten, very cute. Tess took care of my 2 cats, CSea, a ragdoll, and Sally, named for Hurricane Sally after finding her on the road after that storm. Both cats could not be more different, CSea loves attention and Sally is skittish. Tess knew how to handle both personalities! Everyday Tess would update me with pictures and videos and it really made me feel like I was the “comforted kitty” knowing they were being taken care of so well. She filled dry food and water bowls daily, gave them their wet food, and cleaned out the litter boxes each day too (something I do not even do). Tess is absolutely the best and I hope she will be able to watch the cats over the Christmas break too! Dan with Comforted Kitty is also wonderful to work with, very prompt and professional! Highly recommend!!” – Traci G. (Los Angeles)

Shauna J.
Hello cat parents! My name is Shauna and I recently relocated to LA from the east coast. I have over 20 years of experience both owning and caring for my feline friends treating them as if they were my own. I know the feeling when you have to leave home and sadly can't bring your fur baby with you, and I know that it helps you rest better knowing that a trustworthy cat lover is looking after your feline friend. I love caring for life; pets, people and plants, so I look forward to caring for your fur babies. I respect cats' boundaries as they all have different personalities and I care for them accordingly giving them as many cuddles, scratches, play and/or space that they desire and I feel that is what makes me unique. I have provided cat sitting services within clients homes for a number of years and enjoy getting to know your kitties. I also have experience managing homes ranging from 2 bedroom condos, larger mansions, apartment complexes and international tourism properties. I am experienced in coordinating & organizing moves, renovations, repairs, cleaning services and staff/vendor services so if you're away for an extended period of time and also needs some things taken care that fall under that umbrella, I'm your person 🙂 I have 2 years managing a 40 acre farm thus versed in plant care. I am a certified yoga/meditation guide thus I bring a calm open heart presence to your space. I have a health science & public health educational background (BS degree). I am peaceful, efficient, resourceful, organized, timely, pleasant energetic and responsible. Looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies 🙂

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I have five young cats who are all new to me, so I was very nervous about leaving them for an international vacation. As soon as I discovered The Comforted Kitty, all of my fears were abated. The process of setting up an account took a fair amount of time, which demonstrated to me how seriously The Comforted Kitty takes their responsibilities. Prices are a bit higher than other cat-sitters in the area, but this company is worth every penny. Our caregiver Shauna was INCREDIBLE. She sent me updates with every visit that demonstrated both how well she was getting to know my cats and how much she cared for them. I could see their happiness and health in every photo. Not only will I use The Comforted Kitty for every future trip, I will plan the timing of vacations based on Shauna’s availability. I simply couldn’t be happier with my experience.” – Robin M. (Los Angeles)

“Thank you for understanding and thank you for taking such good care of them and all the love and patience you gave them. Thank you thank you thank you, Shauna!!! You are clearly a beautiful spirit. Toots, Peet, Jane and myself are very grateful ~ until next time.” -Larry K. (Los Angeles)

"The things I love about cats are their independence and sense of themselves yet they are also loving and playful on their own terms. They are so beautiful, as someone said, "There is no need for sculpture in a house with a cat." It's hard to put into words how amazing I think they are. There is a dignity about them that says, "You expect me to do what???" They can look right into your soul."
I have been pet/house sitting for friends for several years, cats, dogs, and chickens, but cats are my favorite. As a kid, we always had 2-3 dogs, German shepards and mutts. When I was in my early 20s I had a horse for about 4 years. I always wanted cats but wasn't able to have them until I was an adult with my own space. For about 4 years I had a family of raccoons I fed and they and the cats would sit out on the patio together. They all got along like a house on fire. My responsibilities for the cats and dogs were the usual, feed them, play with them, take dogs for walks, clean litter box daily, pet them, talk to them. I talk to cats a lot and tell them everything that's going on, what we're going to do, when their owners will be back, what kind of games they want to play. I can communicate telepathically with them. The 8 chickens involved letting them out of the coop in the morning and keeping an eye on them (coyotes, owls, raccoons), then bringing them in at night, feeding and watering them, plus making sure they were all in the hen house and it was securely locked. I have always felt a strong connection to animals, especially as I've gotten older. It is one of the ways that God communicates with me through them. The charities I choose are those for animal and environmental protection. Due to my living situations for a long time now, I have not been able to have my own cat and miss them fiercely. My hobbies are figure skating (I'm a retired coach), hiking, old movies, I love books and read like crazy. I'm also an actress with an agent who sends me around 10 auditions a month, commercials only what with the strikes. I'm a member of the Group Repertory Theater in N. Hollywood. Two of my favorite books/films are the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Harry Potter series, but I have a wide range of books and authors I enjoy, as long as they are about human/family connections, their struggles and how they overcome and heal them. I love to cook and am quite good. I have zany things that come out of my mouth sometimes. For instance, one time during a break in acting class, we were standing around talking about where we are from. Someone said "Steve's from Somalia" and I said, completely seriously, "You mean he comes from Somalia every week to go to class?" Of course everyone busted up laughing and I immediately realized how silly that was. The other side of me is that I'm extremely reliable, dependable, almost to a fault.

"Cats are especially awesome to care for because they have such quirky and individual personalities! Once you've gained their trust, they are such loveable and loyal pets!"
As an LA native, I’ve come to appreciate the fact that “fur-babies” not only exist but are a way of life. Pets can become an integral part of your family, which is evident by the many pet-strollers I see nowadays. But that just shows the real value and love pets can bring to our lives. I know this firsthand growing up with pets whom I have cherished throughout the years. I love interacting and taking care of animals and, in turn, I’ve found that animals can definitely reciprocate that love to you. Whether it’s pet-sitting or boarding your pet, I know the importance of spending time with them and showing affection. It may not always be an easy job but it’s so rewarding for me.

Kat G.
I'm absolutely bats for cats! My lifetime love of them began with Butchy, my first cat, who adopted me when I was 2 years old. I have enjoyed loving, being around, and taking care of them ever since. I care for the cats in my charge, whether yours or mine, with the dignity, respect, kindness, compassion, and love they all deserve. Cats occupy most of my waking (and many of my sleeping) hours. At my residence, I currently care for a family, a colony of 23 spayed/neutered cats. I must be doing something right as they all choose to live with me. Luckily, my other chief hobby provides these cats with their own gardens at my home. The gardens are free of pesticides and poisons, a quiet, safe, restful, shady, protected place for them. The outdoor cat crew love it. All the neighborhood cats visit it. My indoor crew admire it from inside through the windows and glass doors. I have cared for cats in sickness and in health, until death do we part. As a result, I am very competent to give insulin shots, pill (though liquid medicine is far easier for the cat and me), give eye drops and ear drops, and feed a cat through a surgically implanted tube -- although I am very happy when my charges are healthy instead. The only area where I am lacking is in administering subcutaneous fluids. I cannot honestly call myself competent at that. I hope you will trust me to care for your favorite purrson(s). I'll do my very best to fill the empty space your absence leaves in their lives whenever you must be away.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“My regular cat sitter was not able to watch Tux for a trip and I started to panic. My girlfriend found The Comforted Kitty and my sitter Kat was amazing. She’s an amazing cat person and really cares about taking care of your little furry. Love the photos and updates while I am gone! Will be using this service for all future needs.” – Matthew N. (Beverly Hills)

“Kat was a fantastic sitter. She genuinely cares about cats and I felt very comfortable with her watching over mine. She was very thorough and sent lots of pictures and updates. I could not imagine a better sitter.” – Josh H. (Los Angeles)

“My cat sitter was Kat and she was great, better than I ever expected. I was gone for seven days and she sent pictures and videos for each day. The most difficult part for her was keeping my cats (I have two) inside, but she managed despite their insistence. I’ll have Kat again any time I go away. She was wonderful.” – Sue T. (Los Angeles)

“I went on a long summer vacation and was so happy to have found The Comforted Kitty! Kat G. is great! She is very thorough and responsible and goes above and beyond. I knew that my cats were well cared for and I didn’t have to worry about anything at my house either. I highly recommend the service and Kat G. in particular.” – Cristina M. (Los Angeles)

“We recently went on an eight day trip followed by another five day trip a week later, and we asked The Comforted Kitty to take care of our cat, Marky. Well, I think we will be going on many more trips now! We had always asked our neighbors to look in on Marky when we went away. This trip, being so long, we decided to hire a professional cat sitter. After a long Google and Yelp search, it seemed like most services were “pet” sitters. Basically, dog walkers who will also take care of cats. We loved that The Comforted Kitty is exclusively for cats! When we first met Kat, our designated sitter, we could immediately tell that she’s a cat person with a gentle heart but serious and organized about cat sitting. She is a cat whisperer! Each day, Kat sent us photos and videos of her interacting with Marky along with a report on how he’s doing. Kat is wonderful!! The Comforted Kitty is managed through an app, and each day, we received a notification for a comprehensive checklist of daily tasks. Their app is where you leave information and instructions, and it makes scheduling for cat sitting, confirmation, and payment a breeze. It is quite impressive! We are very pleased with The Comforted Kitty, and we will always request Kat for all our future travels!” – Mark S. (Los Angeles)

“The Comforted Kitty, and our pet sitter, Kat G., have been wonderful. Very professional, reliable, caring and detailed visits. Kat provides pictures and meaningful updates each visit, and truly treats our cats and our home as we would. We have great peace of mind knowing that our cats and home are in such good hands. The booking and payment process also are very easy. The whole experience exceeded our expectations.” – Bill D. (Thousand Oaks)

"What I love most about cats, is that they can be both very independent, and social with their humans. They bring us great comfort and support with their unique personalities, and social, or personal needs."
I have owned and cared for my own pets, 3 cats and 1 Yorkie Terrier for around 12 years. Today, my son and I have one cat. We love animals. Our cat Bubbles, brings us great joy, and emotional support. I have taken care of family members’ pets while they went on vacation and found that it was something I wanted to pursue. I love cat sitting. I love to be able to help people, and their pets out whenever I can. I am an active American Red Cross Platelet Donor. I give every week to help patients who are fighting cancer. I enjoy knitting scarves and hats, and other small projects in my free time. This Winter, I set a weight loss goal. Since seeing the results of my hard work at the gym, I found that I enjoy it.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“Last fall, I was looking for a cat sitter to visit our two cats while I am away on a trip. I stumbled upon Comforted Kitty and gave them a try. The moment they processed my request, their team showed absolute professionalism and compassion for our pet sitting needs. During my booking request, our third cat in the household fell very ill. Dan was very kind and considerate about the changes in our needs. Griz V. , our sitter was punctual, considerate to my family, was willing to take on giving meds to our ill cat , and kind to our other two kitties. Sadly, our ill cat passed away before my departure. Their mobile app, Time to Pet is superb and very user friendly. I was able to communicate with Griz V. and Dan while I was out of the country. I do highly recommend Comforted Kitty to cat parents who are looking for a suitable pet sitter for your fur babies.” – Mary C. (Los Angeles)

“I have hired The Comforted Kitty numerous times at this point, over the years and I continue to trust them with Dexter whenever I have to leave town for a bit. Griselda was extremely thorough, followed my directions perfectly, and left the keys right where I asked her to on the last day.
The Comforted Kitty is worth every penny for the peace of mind knowing that my cat is in good hands while I’m traveling.” – Abhi (Los Angeles)

“I adopted Lilo about 2 months ago before I was told I had to go on 3 different work trips in a short amount of time. Of course I was nervous about leaving Lilo so a google search let me to The Comforted Kitty.They do an in-take visit so you can explain to your catsitter what is needed, and you can meet your catsitter. Griz has been nothing short of wonderful in taking care of Mr Lilo while I was out. She provides plenty of photos everyday with lots of updates.This makes me feel less stressed about leaving Lilo for a couple days at a time, knowing someone is taking time every day to play with him, refresh his food bowls and just look after him in general.” – Saskia P. (Oceanside)

“We had a great experience with The Comforted Kitty. Griz sent lovely updates each day she checked in with our cat Peggy, and we didn’t have to worry at all despite having what I would consider a confusing apartment building to navigate! The whole operation was very professional and we are most grateful.” – Hunter K. (North Hollywood)

“We were heading out of town unexpectedly and we needed someone to take care of our 2 cats while we were gone. We were able to arrange for Griselda to care for them and she was wonderful. So grateful that The Comforted Kitty was able to accommodate our request with such short notice! It was a short-term sitting (only one day) but we will definitely be using them again in the future!” – Abby T. (Los Angeles)

“Griz – I can’t tell you how comforting it is to have you cat sit for us. I feel guilty about leaving Maia – having you there gives me peace of mind. Thank you!!!! Again, I so appreciate the love and care you show Maia. These pictures say a thousand words…she clearly loves and trusts you (she doesn’t headbutt many people)!” Susan P. (Signal Hill)

“Thank you so much. Honestly it means so much to us that we have found you :0)” Jennifer H. (Los Angeles)

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“When we moved from Long Beach (and our longtime cat care provider) one of my biggest concerns was finding a kind, trustworthy caregiver for our skittish rescue cat – I’m SO HAPPY we found The Comforted Kitty! We absolutely love Zaira, and so does our typically very shy cat! It’s such a relief to have a caring, trustworthy person taking care of our littlest family member, Zaira leaves thorough reports about what happened that day and sends the most adorable pictures too! Zaira is a treasure and we are so thrilled to have found this wonderful service!!” – GV N. (Los Angeles)

Meaghan R.
What I love most about cats: I find their overall energy to be incredibly calming and loving. Even when shy, cats may be mysterious, but they’re great communicators. They make me want to do nothing but love and care for them, and I couldn’t be happier doing that.
Animals mean more to me than anything in life and I find extreme joy in bringing them safety, care, and happiness. I have been a pet owner my whole life and currently have three cats, each rescued from the streets of Los Angeles. I love making cat friends everywhere I go, and I personally think they make the best company. Besides caring for my own and sitting various friends’ cats, I also volunteered for several years at the Pasadena Humane Society. I am comfortable with detailed instructions and giving any oral or topical medications. I am a freelance artist, working mostly in miniatures and stopmotion animation. Afternoons and evenings work best for me, but have a flexible schedule. I am located in the 90026 zip code of Echo Park near Silverlake, Los Feliz, East Hollywood, Angelino Heights, Downtown Los Angeles, Koreatown, Elysian Heights, and Chinatown neighborhoods. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to meeting your feline friends.

“I was looking for a cat sitter for sometime now and found The Comforted Kitty’s video online. I was impressed with the owners story. I booked a week long visit while I was away in May. I was introduced to Meaghan before my trip. What a wonderful personality she has, I could tell she loves pets. My two boys did warm up to her while I was away. I loved her recap stories on a day to day visits, it kept me informed and entertained about their activities. Thanks for an awesome job, I’m going away this week and feel safe leaving them with Meaghan.” – David S. (Los Angeles)

Jen K.
What I love most about cats is their intuitive spirits, and their 6th sense of human emotions. No other creatures show love and comfort quite like cats do, and always at the perfect moment.
Since her early childhood years, Jen has been an avid lover of cats, initially intrigued by their alluring and affectionate nature; and soon thereafter, their unique quirks and fascinating behaviors. For the last 9-13 years, Jen has been caring for her own three black cats, Ninja, Yoda, and Toby; and is so thankful for these therapeutic and entertaining beings in her life. With her “cat whisperer” essence, Jen is happy to look after and care for her friends’ cats, as well as all cat clients of The Comforted Kitty. A client recently said to her that she has the best job in the world, and she was very accurate with that statement. 🙂 When Jen isn’t spending time with cats, she enjoys painting works of art, playing bass guitar, and exploring all nature spots throughout the Los Angeles area. As a creative person, Jen inevitably has eccentric cats who like to sit in her lap while she paints, or fall asleep to her playing soft bass lines.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I was very nervous about leaving my cat, Ranger, with a sitter as I always had a family member stay in my home. I met Jen and was reassured enough to use this service for the first time. Jen was amazing with Ranger. She sent me photos of him being pet and playing with toys and eating. I never could’ve enjoyed my vacation if it wasn’t for her. When I came home my house was the same as I left it and the kitty was happier than ever. I can’t recommend Jen enough. Thank you Comforted Kitty for having such stellar kitty whispers on your staff.” – Annamarie A. (Los Angeles)

“I have an elderly cat with special needs, and going out of town is usually stressful. My cat’s sitter (Jen) is amazing and I feel so much better knowing my cat is in such good hands.” – Jenn C. (Los Angeles)

“I love The Comforted Kitty! Jen is amazing and I am so happy to have her as a sitter. My cat LOVES her and is taken care of when I’m gone.” – Shannon D. (Los Angeles)

“My petsitter moved out of town and I was worried about finding someone new to watch my two cats. I am so glad I contacted The Comforted Kitty! The excellent care and resulting peace of mind is worth every penny, and allowed me to relax on my trip 3,000 miles away. Jen K. is so kind, thorough, communicative, and an obvious animal lover. I received daily updates and photos, and I knew my cats liked her because they actually came out of hiding for a “stranger”! Will definitely use their services again – hopefully Jen K! – but if not, I am confident the other petsitters at Comforted Kitty provide the same high-quality standard of care.” – Jennifer S. (Los Angeles)

“Finally my expectations have been met!! When I first used this company, I had 4 boys, 1 of whom needed quite a few medications. The sitter assigned to me, Jen, was FANTASTIC. I mean really wonderful. I taught her how to give an insulin shot and she took to it immediately. And when my very shy cat didn’t run from her, I knew she was a great fit. The company itself is quick to respond, very thorough in making sure the needs of all your animals are met, and everyone is super kind. I can’t recommend them enough. Thank you comforted kitty!” – KMM (Los Angeles)

“Jen took an excellent care of my cat when I was in the hospital. Communication and making changes was effortless. I will definitely be using The Comforted Kitty in the future when in the need of cat sitting.” – Heine N. (Los Angeles)

“We worked with Jen K., and she was an absolute delight to have taking care of our cat! She sent updates and pictures every visit, and it really eased our minds a lot having her take care of our kitty while we were gone. He needed medication and a lot of affection, and Jen did all of that and more! This service is really above and beyond any of the petsitters we’ve tried in the past.” – Elizabeth B. (Los Angeles)

“My sitter Jen was great. My cat took about 2 weeks to warm up to me when I first got him but he took to Jen in about 5 days. I received daily updates about the amount of food he ate, the litter situation, and his overall demeanor. Everyone at the company was very responsive when I first contacted them about watching my cat so I was able to book a sitter quickly before the holidays. I will definitely be using this service again in the future.” – James Hansen (Los Angeles)

“I don’t know what I would do without Jen at The Comforted Kitty! She takes such good care of my feline friend and sends me the best pictures so that I know she is safe and loved while I am away. Not only does she feed her but she refreshes the water, gives her greenies, and cleans the litter box. I couldn’t be happier with this service.” – Shannon D. (Los Angeles)

“Comforted Kitty was just what we needed! We suddenly found ourselves needing cat care twice a day while we were gone due to a medical issue and they came through at the last minute. Our sitter, Jen, is absolutely fantastic. One of our cats NEVER comes out for strangers or sitters and she not only got him to come out, but he loved seeing her. Both cats let her love them up. She took care of all of their needs and sent us updates and photos for every visit. We feel so lucky to have Jen and only hope she is always available for us.” – Ellen V. (Flintridge)

“We went away in January 2023 for a week and used Comforted Kitty for the first time. We were very pleased, our sitter Jen gave us updates and photos every day to let us know how our cats were doing. The communication with both Jen and Daniel the owner was great. When we got back we could tell our kitties were well taken care of. Next time we go out of town we will use Comforted Kitty again.” – David K. (Los Angeles)

“We were so thrilled to find a feline-specific service to care for our cat when we need to be away. Jen is so thorough in her updates and always shares several great pics. It gives us peace of mind knowing our kitty is receiving excellent care while we’re gone. Scheduling and communicating through the app is easy and convenient – will definitely keep coming back!” – Molly I. (Los Angeles)

“The Comforted Kitty is a reliable, professional, and trustworthy service. I’ve used them twice and was very happy. They took great care of our kitty and sent daily updates and pictures. I was recently looking for a sitter on very short notice and owner Dan helped me find a sitter, Jen, who showed up on our doorstep within a couple of hours for a meet and greet! Jen was lovely and did an excellent job. Most importantly she gave major cat person vibes and was gentle and understanding with our shy and sensitive cat. Thank you, Jen and Dan!” – Emma T. (Los Angeles)

“I can’t express how happy we are that we found The Comforted Kitty and our cat sitter Jen! We trust Jen implicitly with our two cats. Jen’s communication is fantastic and she shares the cutest updates, photos and videos each time she visits. We miss our kitties terribly when we’re away, but it brings us joy and comfort knowing they are having a wonderful time hanging out with Jen. Jen has also been amazing with emptying our mail box, bringing in some packages and helping me to keep some particularly needy plants alive when we were away on a long trip. 10/10 would recommend :)” – Kirstin J. (Los Angeles)

“After some experience using rover and being disappointed every time we decided to give The Comforted Kitty a shot ! This ended up being a great decision after being quite anxious leaving our cats with another sitter Jen was able to relieve the stress we had and provide excellent care for them!” – Cristian H. (Los Angeles)

“Jen did a fantastic job watching out kitties. She sent us photos daily and I could enjoy my vacation knowing my pets were well taken care of.” – Tori C. (Los Angeles)

“They get all the stars!! I finally feel like I’ve found a company/pet sitter that meets my standards for all my babies. The company itself was quick to respond and incredibly thorough when getting all the information for my boys. They don’t miss anything. And I love that everything comes through a helpful app. The sitter assigned to me, Jen, is absolutely wonderful. I taught her how to give an insulin shot and she took to it immediately. She is so kind and prompt and I could tell she was a good egg when my very shy cat didn’t run away from her! Animals just know, you know. So thank you comforted kitty!! I’m so happy to have found this company.” – Kimberly M. (Burbank)

“Super reliable team, very easy to work with and have always been available when we’ve needed them. Jen is our sitter and she’s amazing, always sends great photos and fun updates of our two cats, whenever we return home they’re in great spirits so we know they’re well taken care of.” – Peter I. (Los Angeles)

“Upon learning about The Comforted Kitty I have used them on two separate occasions. I’m a new pet parent and hate leaving my girls for any length of time, but I can say that The Comforted Kitty & Jen put me at ease while I was away. Jen would come by everyday to visit my girls, play with them, feed them, clean their potty boxes, and give them all the love that I couldn’t while I was away. She would give me daily reports of the visit and photos to go along. I’m super satisfied with the care Jen has given my girls and I feel really lucky to have found both Jen and The Comforted Kitty. I highly recommend to anyone looking for someone to take care of their furry friends while they are out of town.” – Lauren R. (Los Angeles)

“I was nervous to use a cat sitter, but frequent work travel has made it necessary. I chose TCK after reading the positive reviews and am so glad I gave it a shot. Our sitter Jen is so lovely. She writes detailed updates after every single visit and includes pictures too. When our AC broke during a heatwave she was proactive about finding a solution to keep our kitty Winston cool until we returned. Winston is very shy with strangers, so she isn’t getting the most exiting visits with him (sorry Jen!) but her care is diligent and loving even so, and we appreciate it so much.” – Molly O. (Los Angeles)

“I had to be out of town for about 5 days so I had Jen come and do daily visits with my cat during that time. I had never used a sitting service before and had never left my cat alone for that long before, so I was really nervous, but it all went very smoothly! Jen provided detailed updates about my cat every day, and he even went out to see her a few times when he’s normally extremely shy around strangers. She was professional, followed all of my instructions, and took her job very seriously so it seems that the vetting process for hiring sitters at this company is pretty good. I’d recommend it for anyone who is going out of town for a few days and needs someone to check in on their kitty!” – Natalie W. (Glendale)

“The Comforted Kitty could also be called The Comforted Human! My wife and I had complete peace of mind knowing Jen (Los Angeles) was providing excellent care to our two cats while we were out of town. We also very much enjoyed receiving daily text updates with some photos of our cats playing with their new friend! We were especially impressed how our one cat, who normally never enjoys new visitors, came right up to Jen and sat next to her during our meet and greet! Jen certainly has a way with making new feline friends. We would 100% recommend to anyone who needs their little fuzzballs looked after when out of town.” – Ted F. (Los Angeles)

“We worked with Jen K. in the LA area, and she was an absolute delight to have taking care of our cat! She sent updates and pictures every visit, and it really eased our minds a lot having her take care of our kitty while we were gone. He needed medication and a lot of affection, and Jen did all of that and more! This service is really above and beyond any of the petsitters we’ve tried in the past.” – Liz B. (Glendale)

“It wasn’t until I found this service that I felt that I could actually take a vacation and not worry about my cat. Jen Kiddo is amazing and my cat Ranger adores her. She sent photos and updates and I felt that Ranger was in really good hands and I could relax and just enjoy myself. I will be using this company anytime I am away from home.” – Annamarie A. (Los Angeles)

“Jen is the absolute best cat sitter! Our clowder of five cats have bonded with her quickly and happily greet her at the door! Jen always sends the best pictures/updates to us through the Time to Pet App and text. Featured are some of her photos of our cats; as you can see they really enjoy her visits! Jen also helps feed our fish, and brings in any packages we receive while away. Five stars, customers for life. Thank you for all your help!” – Jordan W. (Los Angeles)

“Jen from Comforted Kitty looked after our 3 year old British Shorthair for a long weekend while we escaped to Palm Springs. She did an absolutely excellent job and we couldn’t be happier with the service. She was super easy to communicate with before the weekend and she provided detailed reports with pictures after every visit while caring for our cat. It was also clear that our cat really enjoyed her visits to the point that I am not sure she was that happy that we came back! ;-)” – Nelson P. (Los Angeles)

“We love this service. Our two cats are slightly nervous indoor rescues. Leaving them in good care of Jen is such a relief, which we’ve done several times now. We can trust that she looks after them and gives them all the attention they need. We also appreciate the updates we get at every visit, including pictures and details on how the cats behaved – and the communication around setting up a schedule is really smooth and responsive. Ever since we’ve been working with The Comforted Kitty we’ve had much more peace of mind going away on trips.” – Fons S. (Los Angeles)

“I love comforted kitty and so does my kitty! our sitter Jen is super attentive and always makes sure all of our kitty’s needs are met and then some! she even grabs our packages while we’re away :)” – Lainie L. (Pasadena)

“My sitter Jen was great. My cat took about 2 weeks to warm up to me when I first got him but he took to Jen in about 5 days. I received daily updates about the amount of food he ate, the litter situation, and his overall demeanor. Everyone at the company was very responsive when I first contacted them about watching my cat so I was able to book a sitter quickly before the holidays. I will definitely be using this service again in the future.” James H. (Los Angeles)

“We worked with Jen K., and she was an absolute delight to have taking care of our cat! She sent updates and pictures every visit, and it really eased our minds a lot having her take care of our kitty while we were gone. He needed medication and a lot of affection, and Jen did all of that and more! This service is really above and beyond any of the petsitters we’ve tried in the past.” Elizabeth B. (Los Angeles)

“Jen took an excellent care of my cat when I was in the hospital. Communication and making changes was effortless. I will definitely be using The Comforted Kitty in the future when in the need of cat sitting.” Heini N. (Los Angeles)

“Hi Jen! Thank you for being so kind and patient with her and staying the extra time to let her get comfy. We just arrived back home safe and sound to a very happy cat. Thank you so much for your considerate care and thoughtful updates. I hope we can have you visit next time we’re away!” -Katherine N. (Pasadena)

“Jen! We are SO grateful to you for looking after Mochi. I can tell that Mochi was stoked to have you as her cat sitter and I so hope that we can always go through you!

Judie H.
I have always loved cats for their ease of care. And also, contrary to popular opinion, they are very affectionate, entertaining and smart.
I am Judie Henninger and I am a former entertainment industry executive and producer. But I have retired from that industry and now I’m here to take care of your fur babies. I have had cats since I was nine years old with family and then on my own. It seemed a natural move to spend time more time with the animals I love. I currently have brother & sister Tuxedo cats that will turn two in August. I adopted them at 3 months old from their foster home. Prior to that I had two Maine Coon Cats who have since passed. I started taking care of friends' cats a few years ago when they went out of town for business or pleasure. And really enjoy being with them. Cats always sense another cat lover and sometimes even the shyest cats warm up to me. I have experience giving insulin shots, subcutaneous fluids and pills or liquid meds to them. I joined The Comforted Kitty as a professional cat sitter in November 2021. And I have met some awesome kitties as well as people. I want potential clients and current clients to know they are in good hands with me and I will give them love they need while you are away.

“We are so glad to have found The Comforted Kitty and Judie! Our cat, Belle, instantly liked Judie and the feeling was mutual.

Julia A.
I love how uniquely adorable and funny cats are. They truly give us a special kind of love and bond and add so much joy to life.
Hello! I’m Julia, a life long cat owner and lover. I have always had a passion for all animals, but especially cats. I have always lived in a home with cats, and I grew up volunteering with my local shelter and rescues in Illinois. After moving to California, I began working at a cat cafe where I cared for a colony of 20+ adoptable cats and learned so much more about cat care and the rescue world. I still continue to volunteer with my local cat rescue Stray No More, but moved my focus to cat sitting when I went back to school. I am currently pursuing my certification to become an American Sign Language interpreter 🤟

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I’m thrilled with the care and comfort Julia provided our two cats. We’ve had friends stay in our home for a week that saw less of our cats than she was able to accomplish on her first visit. The daily updates from The Comforted Kitty app are also incredibly reassuring.” – Gerri B. (Santa Clarita)

“Reliable, trustworthy, and thorough.  Julia has been our cat sitter for almost 1 year!” – Megan O. (Los Angeles)

“Incredibly professional. Our sitter Julia was so kind, accommodating, and clearly loves cats. Each day we were away she sent us a video and photos of Arya and was very communicative. Definitely going to be using their services going forward as long as we are in their service area! The Comforted Kitty also has a great website portal that helps keep things organized. Highly recommend to anyone, as they also offer very reasonable prices.” – Jack B. (Los Angeles)

“The Comforted Kitty and Julia were fantastic! The whole process was easy, and their intake form was detailed and ensured that I didn’t forget to tell them anything. I felt very safe leaving my two cats. Julia was an amazing cat sitter; she sent me daily photos and videos, which gave me peace of mind. Even my cats, who don’t like anyone, warmed up to her and let her pet them. Highly recommend them!” – Adrienne H. (Los Angeles)

“Our cat has recently developed health issues that require medication, and our former catsitter didn’t have the skills for that- which led us to Comforted Kitty. Our sitter Julia clearly loves cats, and takes her job seriously- our cat was medicated and cared for, and we got regular updates. Our cat usually hides from sitters, but actually comes out of her little spots for Julia! Can’t recommend them enough!” – Em G. (Los Angeles)

“We had Julia take care of our cats for a weekend trip and she did a fantastic job! We really appreciated all the information we got from the check in, including lots of photos and videos!” – Lorenzo G. (Los Angeles)

“Julia always does a great job taking care of our two cats. I would not trust anyone else with them!” – Keegan H. (Los Angeles)

“I have 3 cats and needed someone experienced and trustworthy to watch them while I was away for 4 days. The Comforted Kitty was exactly what I was looking for. I love that they want detailed information about each of your cats and that you can meet your sitter prior to the sitting.My sitter was Julia and she was fantastic! I could tell she loved cats and also had lots of experience. While I was away she sent me detailed updates with photos and videos. I felt at ease knowing my cats were in good hands. I will definitely be using The Comforted Kitty again!” – Jasmine J. (Fullerton)

“The Comforted Kitty and Dan has been absolutely stellar for us every time we’ve worked together. We’ve received consistently prompt service, with care and trust. Julia especially has been so considerate of our cat and is very trustworthy. She sends photo updates and is so good with cats! It gives me peace of mind when we have to travel to get their reports and know our fellow housemate is being cared for. Julia and each sitter goes above and beyond to connect with the cat. We know that our cat could not be in better hands and the communication reports we receive helps us rest easy. Thank you so much!” – Zoe E. (Los Angeles)

“We have used The Comforted Kitty twice in the past month, and plan to continue doing so for upcoming trips. For us, the service has been a godsend. Dan, the owner of the company, is extremely attentive to clients, and the sitter we have had both times, Julia, has been wonderful. Our cat Wallis attached to her immediately, and we receive great photos and videos showing that they are having a lot of fun together. I totally trust that the people who work for The Comforted Kitty will treat our cat and our house with great care. The price is right too.” – Tom R. (Culver City)

“The whole process of leaving my babies was stressful. I had never gone out of town before since getting my kittens. A friend of mine recommended the Comforted Kitty and from the minute I looked them up everything was telling me to book them! The ease of booking, the technology (the app is awesome) and even when I got to meet the sitter. Julia was so amazing and took amazing care of my little ones. It was great to get updated photos and videos of my babies after her visits. I really enjoyed being able to provide all the care instructions right in the app. Julia checked in with me and reviewed everything. 10/10 would use them again and share with everyone I know. I felt so good knowing they were cared for.” – Chanin S. (Los Angeles)

“Thank you Julia!! He looks so happy and we are very lucky that you are taking such great care of our favorite George.” -Zoe E. (Los Angeles)

Emily D.
Hi, my name is Emily. I am an animal lover who has 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 1 fish. I love animals so much that I went to school and got my license to work as a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT for short). I currently work at an animal hospital and have been working with cats for 4 years! As well as love on my animals when I get home! On the weekends you will usually find me cooking or going on adventures (with my animals of course). I am so excited to be working with The Comforted Kitty to provide the best care and service for your babies! I love cats because of how unexpected and silly they are. They are constantly making me laugh and I could easily adopt many more.

Silas R.
Hi there! My name is Silas Riggs, my pronouns are he/him. I'm an experienced cat owner/handler/sitter with about 15 or so years under my belt. I've always loved cats and after owning my first cat, Smokey, I was hooked on caring for, and owning them. In my years, I've learned everything about cats from behaviors, language, breed types, and specialised care. I started fostering kittens and neonates in my teen years and began pet-sitting as early as 13 years old. Among my friends and family, I'm the person to go to whenever someone has a cat care question or needs advice on aiding neonatal kittens. In my freetime, aside from drawing mine and my friend's pets, I also enjoy creating costumes, writing, and working on cars and have been doing so once I could properly hold a pencil. My favorite thing about cats is how similar they are to myself. Being an individual with autism and adhd, many of my behaviors closely match up with cats: (i.e. avoiding eye contact, not enjoying social settings too much, and having strong sensory aversions/preferences). It is also remarkably easy to understand their boundaries through body language and I believe there is no such thing as a bad kitty, only a misunderstood kitty.

"My favorite thing about cats is when they give you little head bonks!"
Hey there, I'm Kimberly! I have had cats my whole life, and currently live with five (the cat distribution system seems to have me on speed dial). The cats in the neighborhood know my house is the place to go. I've socialized a good number of them and have found homes for some, one of those homes being my own. I have been pet sitting for over 10 years and have also worked as a pet bather, which included bathing cats. Cat days at the pet salon were always my favorite! I have raised a number of kittens and cared for seniors, dealing with a variety of medical needs. I have experience with administering medications (oral and topical) which I've done for both my own and my clients' kitties. When your kitties are in my care, I will love them as if they are my own. You'll get lots of pictures, of course! When at home, and the cats are all taking their midday nap, I enjoy making art or playing video games. I am always thinking of ways to use my hobbies to help raise money for local cat rescues. I hope to one day be able to have a cat sanctuary, to help kitties find their forever homes, and to give a forever home to those that are less likely to be adopted.

"My favorite thing about cats is when they make biscuits in your lap and turn into bread loaves."
Hello, I’m Emma Perry. I am a known cat lady. I’ve had family cats and now have a 7 year old cat, Appa that I have raised since he was a kitten. I’ve cat sit for neighbors and family friends (changing cat litter, dispensing meds, playtime, and cuddles). Outside of cuddling cats and slow blinking, I love doing crafts and work with adults and kids with autism.

I learned the magic of a cat’s purr as a young child and have shared my life with feline friends ever since. I appreciate each cat’s unique personality and quirks. Having encountered the challenge of finding someone I trusted to care for my feline family members, my goal is to provide you with peace of mind. It is my privilege (and joy) to provide loving care while you are away.

Gaby V.
Hi there! My name is Gaby. I am a lifelong cat lover who has always been surrounded by them and would love to help you care for yours. I have owned cats my whole life and have a profound understanding of feline behavior. The thing I love most about cats is that they all have their own unique personalities and require you to truly earn their trust as a caretaker! As a cat parent myself I know how important it is to make sure your cat is taken well care of during a vacation. I understand the importance of having a sitter you can not only trust, but someone who will go above and beyond to make sure all your feline needs are met. I love showering cats with affection and attention, so you can both feel at ease during your time apart. I hope to be a comforting presence for them while you are away. When I am not caring for kitties, you will find me volunteering at different rescue organizations (cat/horse/rabbit) all over Orange County. Looking forward to connecting!

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“We are seriously so grateful to have found The Comforted Kitty. We are new-ish to the area which means we had to completely start over in terms of finding a cat sitter. I have always been so anxious to leave our cats Billie and Elvis over the years (I’m sure other fur baby parents understand the pain of leaving them behind when traveling). Billie has some severe skin allergies which requires us to administer a steroid to her every morning. This was such a huge adjustment to us to begin with, but now we had to find a sitter who we could trust to give Billie her medicine while we were gone. We were matched with Gaby and I can’t even begin to explain how grateful we are for her. Gaby is extremely communicative which helps put our minds at ease tremendously. You can absolutely tell and FEEL how much Gaby really does care for your babies. Gaby sends us photos each time she visits and our babies are always so happy and spoiled when she comes to visit. We’ve used different sitters in the different places we’ve lived who cater to all sorts of animals (which is great!) – However, there’s something really reassuring using a sitter who caters specifically to cats. There absolutely is a difference and I feel like there’s this unspoken understanding. I know that Gaby treats our babies as if they were her own – I believe that in my heart 100%. We’ve travelled more this year than previous years truly because we’re less anxious to leave our cats behind. The Comforted Kitty has given us so much flexibility and peace of mind, I literally cannot recommend them enough!” – Vica B.(Irvine)

“Great cat sitting service! Gaby visited my cat for an hour per day while I was away for a week. She took care of all my cat’s needs and sent me very detailed updates each day, including lots of adorable photos. I could tell she genuinely loves spending time with cats, and based on the photos, my cat seemed to agree (she was all over her by the second day). I will be using Comforted Kitty for all my future cat sitting needs going forward.” – Jeremy W. (Irvine)

“Awww thank you so so much Gaby! We feel so lucky and grateful that you are who watches our babies while we’re away 🥰. It gives us such peace of mind! Thank you for everything.” -Victoria B. (Irvine)

Hi, I’m Donna and cats have always been a part of my life. They are such a calming influence. I will take care of your cat(s) as if they were my own. Keeping them safe and well looked after. Feeding and cleaning up after them, playing and talking to them. I have been called “the cat whisperer” due to the fact that all cats gravitate towards me. I would love to take care of your precious cat(s) while you are away.

Hi! My name is Karen. I have always loved animals since I was young. I grew up on a farm with chickens, roosters, goats, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, and peacocks! Everyday I would wander around talking to them, feeding them, playing with them etc but the cats were always special. I love how mysterious, elegant and playful they are. They have always had a calming affect on me. I feel we have a lot in common as I love to stare out the window, relax, sleep, be independent, love sparkly shiny things, just to name a few. I have always been a helper, take care type of person. Friends and family have always ask me to take care of their pets when they are not able to or go out of town/vacations. I absolutely love it! I look forward to be able to meet and care for your feline family member(s)!

"I love being around cats and learning about their many different personalities! Cats are so majestic and I am so honored to be able to work with them."
Animals are family members and bring so much calmness and happiness to people's lives. Cats are the most beautiful, majestic and magical animals! I am honored to be able to work with them. Having cared for indoor and outdoor animals of every size, age, and personality! With cats being her favorite! Coming from the country she naturally started taking care of stray animals and feral cats. She has rescued many animals and continues to do so. My passion and fondness for animals, especially cats, grew from there. She has had fish, pet hamsters, bunnies, cats and dogs. Has rescued a small Beagle mix dog named Sadie, beautiful Savannah named Cypress Hill and a feral cat named Felix. Currently feeding a racoon and opossum who find their way to the outside food, no names have been given to them yet! Having worked as a pet sitter, dog walker and personal home-care assistant gives her years of invaluable experience, so your cats are in caring, capable hands. I feel that nurturing and caring for humans and animals, especially cats come naturally to me. The most rewarding aspect is being able to help others, whether it be a furry friend or a loved one. Her goal is to open her own cat rescue one day to help even more cats! Every cat has a unique personality and never two require the same care. Being able to adjust, adapt and be flexible are some of her amazing traits. My goal is for you to feel completely confident in my abilities, so that you can leave and come home to a happy, healthy cat!

“We have used The Comforted kitty several times now for our 3 cats. Our cats love our sitter, Marlene! (And so do we!) She is great with them and enjoys her time with them. We get pictures every time she’s there. She cleans up their messes, the litter box, and anything else that needs to be done. The cats are always in good spirits when we return. She is wonderful and we highly recommend her for taking care of your kitties! The cats can’t wait for her to come back.” – Carrie L. (Lake Forest)

“Really happy with the cat-sitting services from The Comforted Kitty. It was easy to communicate with the staff, schedule visits, and request specific cat-related or other (plant watering, mail, lights etc) services. Prices are reasonable. It’s nice to get daily updates with photos when I’m away. My sitter (Marlene) is obviously a cat person and knows their needs. Planning on using Comforted Kitty for cat-sitting for the foreseeable future!” -Toby H. (Irvine)

“Marlene is the biggest pet lover. She prefers fur babies over human friends any day. My skittish cats are always so excited to see her, I highly recommend her pet service, very trustworthy with my favorite companions.” -Ashley M. (Long Beach)

"Give a dog a bone, or a half eaten hot dog for that matter, and he'll love you for a lifetime! Cats are far more cautious and selective, but when you finally win their affection it's such a satisfying experience! It's a special bond I really enjoy!"
As a child, growing up in England, I accumulated lots of furry critters, guinea-pigs, rabbits, mice and gerbils just to name a few. My Mum was remarkably tolerant of my petting zoo, even after the gerbils nested in her laundry basket and shredded her freshly ironed clothes! In 1985 I moved to the U.S and later began watching other peoples' pets instead. I met cats of all shapes, sizes and temperaments ranging in age from kittens to 21 year old seniors. Six years ago, I adopted two cats of my own, both rescues: Rosebud, a feral kitten and Miss Mew Mew a diabetic senior cat. They won my heart but I had to earn their trust.

Erika R.
What I love most about cats is just how misunderstood they are by people! They have so much to offer in terms of love, loyalty, friendship! A cat's loyalty comes unexpectedly...but when it does, it's there to stay. It's rare but, not because it happens rarely, but because we rarely see it."
Hi there, my name is Erika Rasmussen, and I Adore all things cats! Since before the day I was born, I've always had a cat in my household whether it be mine or my Mom and Dad's! I noticed at a very young age that I've always had an affinity for cats and seem to share a special connection with any cat I met on the street. That connection launched me into the world of cat advocacy. I am a TNR (trap neuter return) advocate, feral cat caretaker, foster for numerous cat rescues, and an independent trapper when needed. I also very much enjoy educating the public on all the above topics. I've worked at two non-profit cat rescue organizations in California. The first was Stray Cat Alliance, where I had the pleasure of being the Return to Field Coordinator in three different shelters in Orange County and Long Beach. My second cat job was at the Blue Bell Foundation for Cats in Laguna Canyon, where I was able to learn plenty of skills that I still currently use today like, giving insulin injections to diabetic cats, pilling cats, and sub q fluids. That was a really cool job because I dealt with only senior cats as it's like a retirement home for senior cats... Only in California, right?! I have a total of 15 cats between two houses. I have six feral cats, one foster cat, and one rescue at my parent's house - Big Black, Smoketree, Whiskers, Nails, Ginger Blue, Snowshoes, Mr. Baker, and Bela Lugosi. At My boyfriend's house I have four cats and four foster kittens- Raggedy Ann, O'Malley, Ziggy, Dünner Junger, Twinkle, Beep, Boop, and Bop. I've dealt with every temperament of cat out there. I pay very close attention to the body language of cats, as they don't talk like people and you need to be more aware of what they're really telling you. I always love meeting new cats and their caretakers and/or parents!

I’ve been a cat mom for over 30 years. Cats are family! They fill my home with good energy, love and lots of laughter. What I love most about them is their companionship, and our nightly cuddle sessions. I know how hard it is to choose the right person to care for my feline family, so that’s why I decided to become a kitty care provider. I am skilled in administering medicines, and I know the warning signs to look out for if there is a medical emergency brewing. It brings me much joy to care for kitties when their people are out of town, because I know I’m adding a positive element to their day.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“The entire process of working with Dan at The Comforted Kitty was fantastic. It was seamless, easy, and straightforward. We were put into immediate contact with our cat sitter Kris, who came out for an initial visit to make sure the fit was right. We had a great vibe from the get go and so proceeded with the agreement. Kris was caring, attentive, and had a focus on every detail to make sure our cat was taken care of. When we left for vacation Kris was on top of every task, and reported every day with status updates on how our cat was doing, with pictures, and even reports on how their relationship was blossoming! Our cat Nemo really fell in love with Kris! We were so lucky to have Kris and can’t wait to book her again! Thanks Dan, and thanks Kris, for such excellent service!” – Trevor G. (Corte Madera)

"I love that cats are so communicative - you always know exactly how a cat feels about you. I also love their quarks, especially when they try to squeeze into boxes that seem to be all too small for them!"
I’m a Sonoma County native and love cats. I have my own 4 year old rescued kitty, Murphy. I’ve enjoyed having a cat in my life for as long as I can remember. I love their cuddles and purrs but they keep me on toes as well with their feisty, playful nature. When I’m not spending time with cats, I enjoy hiking, eating at local restaurants, and boating.

Dan was prompt and thorough with his communications every step of the way to set up the sitting dates, and our sitter Amber was even better! We trusted her care and professionalism completely. We really appreciate that they only work with felines, and they have flexible scheduling options to suit your specific needs. The app communications are really convenient and easy to use, and we saved a few of the great pics she took of our sweet girl. I highly recommend their services to cat exclusive households, and we are already looking forward to using them again for a couple trips in the near future!” – Brittany H. (Santa Rosa)

"What I like most about cats is their gentle, sweet and independent nature. Earning their trust and affection is the best feeling, and one of the most comforting sounds you can hear is a cat purring!"
I’m a life-long animal lover who has experience caring for many types of pets over my lifetime including cats, dogs, small mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs. I have a degree in biology, and animals are one of my passions. I have fond memories of the cats I have had over my lifetime and have always liked cats for their gentleness and sweet personalities. I recently moved from my career in special education to spend more time with my family, including my young, active dog. I feel privileged to be able to care for others’ pets and give them all the love and attention they need.

CLIENT FEEDBACK:

“I highly recommend The Comforted Kitty. We have had Sarah come and tend to our cat a couple of times. She is consistent and friendly, sending updates and photos from her visits.” – Michelle B. (Novato)

“Dan and the service at The Comforted Kitty is incredible! They have an app that makes requesting service, paying invoices, updating pet information, and communicating with the sitters super easy. Dan is so prompt about coordinating services and for the first one we scheduled a house visit so the sitter could get accustomed to my cat and his routine. I’ve had two sitters, Kendall and Sarah. They’ve both been amazing and my cat absolutely loved them and he can sometimes be pretty shy. They even send texts and updates at each visit with photos. My cat is relatively low maintenance but gets pretty bent out of shape when he has to go to another location, so I’m so glad I came across the Comforted Kitty! I highly recommend them for your cat pwatching requests. An added bonus for me is peace of mind as there’s someone showing up at the house while I’m out of town!” – Kelsey N. (Novato)
