trusted cat sitter, About Us, The Comforted Kitty

Our Story

In 2014, when Dan (Owner/Founder of TCK) was volunteering at an animal shelter, a friend mentioned a cat sitting business she had started herself. Having never heard of such a specialized pet-care company before, he became obsessed with bringing this idea to action in his own life.

The idea of starting his own business is something he has always wanted to do, and a company where you get to work with cats day-in-day-out – sounds to him like the best kind of work anyone could possibly dream up!

Before he started The Comforted Kitty, the same friend warned him, “you will have to work every day.” To him, nothing could possibly sound more appealing. He has always found it very rewarding to know he’s alleviating the boredom, loneliness (and even stress) of a cat whose guardian is away.

In 2014, The Comforted Kitty was born. Dan started with little more than a bicycle to travel to client homes on, a backpack stuffed with cat toys and work supplies, and a few hundred dollars in the bank account. By 2017, it grew tremendously, and we welcomed a partnership with several sitters. In 2019, we established a second location in Las Vegas. In 2021, we established three more locations, Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Reno. Things couldn’t be more exciting!

Fast forward to today, The Comforted Kitty serves hundreds of cat sitting clients annually. We work religiously to make sure all the cats we look after are well taken care of and that they enjoy all of the comforts of their life despite the absence of their guardian.

“Finding a reliable, responsive, and professional cat sitter these days is hard. Providing the highest quality service to our clients is of utmost importance to our company. Your trust and respect must not be violated by anyone you hire to care for your beloved cat and home.”

Dan McPartlan

Our Mission

The Cat Care Equation = Reliability + Responsibility + Responsiveness.

Every single cat owner we’ve met considers their cat an essential part of their family. But, when they go away, knowing what to do and where to turn can be a hard road to navigate. Especially when there are so many seemingly “easy” options out there.

In the modern “gig economy” where you can hire almost anyone for anything with a phone app, it can be challenging finding a cat sitter who is reliable, responsible, and responsive. We’ve seen all too often pet sitters who don’t recognize the profound importance of this. A negligent, inattentive, unknowledgeable cat sitter is not a lesson to be learned, it can be a travesty for both you and your cat.

Since inception, we have made it our company mission only to offer the highest level of care and professionalism when it comes to comforting your kitty and caring for your home. All of our cat sitters cherish feline companionship and only ever want the best for your cat. They’re not just sitting your cat because it’s their job, they serve cats because of their sincere fondness and respect for them.

At The Comforted Kitty, it is our honor and privilege to hold your trust in our meticulous care standard we provide to both your cat and your home.

We cherish the peace of mind we deliver to you, and the assistance your cat has every right to expect and rightfully deserve.

Your customer rights protect you, your cat, and your home from poor or unprofessional service. At the Comforted Kitty, these rights are the foundation to a deep and lasting professional relationship. Your relationship with our company and with your unique cat sitter is a relationship built upon trust, transparency, and accountability.

If a sitter’s actions ever fail to meet these rights, we will take immediate action and full responsibility for any inappropriate and unprofessional behavior. Your trust should never be violated or taken advantage of.

Meet Dan McPartlan

Owner/Founder

My name is Dan and I believe every cat’s life matters: their interests, their personality, their story. All of it is fascinating to me every time I meet a cat I seem to learn something new about them.

Since I can remember, cats have occupied a special place in my heart. After all, the research shows, having a pet can be an intrinsic part of our human nature! While I never had any cats of my own during my childhood, my grandmother fostered up to 30 cats in her home at any given time for the El Dorado Humane Society. She lived next door, and I could almost always be found at her house playing ‘cat-dad’ to all her fostered felines.

I still remember my favorite cats; gregarious Raisin and the slightly overweight Fluffy, a cat who had a tendency to gain a lot of speed coming down a flight of stairs.

What I learned from these interactions is that one of the most important things you can give to a cat is there own home to enjoy. Cat interactions have quite a profound effect on both the mental health of the cat as well as the cat-owner.

That’s why I have spent much of my career pursuing the idea of better welfare for cats and actively volunteering for over 15 years at municipal animal shelters and private rescue organizations, socializing and comforting cats of all ages and temperaments.

I even adopted my cat Pixie from the Berkeley municipal animal shelter after she was found under an overpass.

trusted cat sitter, About Us, The Comforted Kitty

My ultimate goal is to open a feline-themed casino in Las Vegas, where I now live, and have all profits go to finding animal shelter kitties forever homes while additionally supporting veterinary assistance and spay/neuter services to low-income communities. Short of that, I would like to open a cat cafe on the Las Vegas Strip that features kitties from local rescue organizations so that people from around the world visiting can experience their very first cat cafe while also experiencing how amazing shelter kitties can be. And I also want to open a cat rescue ranch in Las Vegas that adopts out homeless kitties rescued from shelters.

My non-feline hobbies include exercise (weightlifting, hot yoga & pilates), photography, and travel to obscure places. I also like collecting cat tattoos and currently have eight!

Meet Your Sitters

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!

“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)

Maria R.
SITTER (SOUTH BAY)
"What I like most about cats is that every cat is uniquely their own individual. Cats are mysterious and beautiful, it’s always fun to watch where their curiosity will take them. "
As a teenager, Maria had a dog and two pet rats. Four years ago she became a total cat lady when she got her first kitten, found in her mom’s backyard with two siblings. Even though Maria decided to keep one it was still hard to find a rescue with room to take two kittens and so she decided once she was able to, she would foster kittens to help. Maria now fosters kittens with SJACC and is very excited to help street kittens find loving homes. Since she got her first kitty, Maria now has three more cats, two of which are also rescued from the streets and one adopted from an organization. Maria also loves pet fish and currently has two fish. Her goal is to open her own cat rescue one day to help even more cats! Maria happily serves clients across the South Bay and Silicon Valley.

“Maria not only took care of my two boys Dexter and Jude, but built a loving trusting bond with them while they were in her care. I can completely trust that my boys will feel safe and at home with her.” Samuel B. (Milpitas)

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.

“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)

Mikaela A.
SITTER (CONTRA COSTA COUNTY)
"What I love most about cats is that they are as independent and fierce as they are cute and curious, and it feels like such an honor to earn their love and affection. I also love when they sit on glass tables -- it’s just so precious!"
Mikaela is a Bay Area native who absolutely adores caring for and spending time with cats. Almost 20 years ago, Mikaela’s parents took her to a neighbor’s house to pick out a kitten from a litter left behind by the neighborhood stray, but she ended up bringing home three! Since then, she has never passed up an opportunity to spend time with cats, often seeking them out at parties, pet sitting for neighbors and family friends, and even volunteering at a cat cafe adoption shelter during her time at UCSB. Her experiences have taught her a lot about the importance of patience and respect when bonding with different feline personalities and she has repeatedly been dubbed a “cat whisperer”. When Mikaela’s not cuddling her own geriatric kitties, she enjoys gardening, cooking, and making music. Mikaela happily serves Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Alamo, Pleasant Hill, and south Concord

“Mikaela provides such gentle, kind and thoughtful care that even our shy skittish cat warms up to her.” – Deborah B. (Walnut Creek)

“As a French family, we leave every summer for a long time. We had an old French cat and needed somebody able to love and take good care of him. When we came back, we always could see our animal was absolutely fine, and cleaned, and brushed … and calm. As If we just left !!! I 100% recommend Mikaela.” – Dominique C. (Walnut Creek)

“My cat loves Mikaela! She did such a great job with her and made her feel very comfortable.” – Catherine W. (Santa Barbara)

Claire G.
"What I love most about cats is that they all have their own unique personalities and it’s fun getting to learn their individual quirks and likes and dislikes."
Claire’s entrance into being a cat lady started 10 years ago when she adopted her first cat. Since then Claire and her family have rescued and adopted several cats into her family and now have a lively house filled with cats! Along with her experience with her own cats, Claire also volunteers her time at a local cat rescue and has experience providing cats with the care and attention that best fit their needs. Claire knows that pets are an important part of your family and leaving them with a sitter requires a lot of trust and that is why Claire is dedicated to providing the best care and needs for both client and kitty. In her free time she enjoys seeing Broadway shows and going to the beach.

Hello! I'm Liza and I'm a huge lover of cats, but I guess that's obvious from my job choice! I'm based in Los Gatos and work retail aside from cat sitting, I have a good work background taking care of pets and I'm excited to make it a more full time part of my working life!

"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!

"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.

Antonella C.
"What I love the most about cats are their nonchalant attitude and their obsessions with reflections. It’s so funny to watch them not get tired of chasing the light although I will say my cat Jaxx has caught on to the fact that it’s my hand that controls the light so sometimes he’ll reach for hand instead of the light. "
Hello! My name is Antonella and I love cats! My family has always been obsessed with animals because they grew up in a ranch back in Peru but naturally we’re always drawn to felines. When I was little my mom and I would always help take care of the neighborhood stray cats. I loved playing with them anytime that I had the opportunity. Now my partner and I have 3 kitties named Rainbow (5), Jaxx (3) and Mochi (8 mo). We live playing with them and spoiling them with all the cat toys we find at target! They all particularly love the feather toys the best! My partner and I sometimes take them out for walks in their kitty backpacks to Lake Merrit.

"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.

Susan D.
"Besides being the most beautiful animals on Earth, cats have a unique way of moving like poetry in motion. ... And, y'know, toe beans."
Susan has always been a caring, intuitive individual with keen attention to detail and a history of customer service, art and design, teaching, senior care, and early childhood development. Susan totes a unique toolbelt of creativity, integrity and management. Raised a girl scout with a strong moral compass and a solid knowledge of first aid, Susan easily navigated towards societal nurturing roles. She also briefly studied psychology and behavioral studies, thus to this day, she carries an understanding and profound respect for varying personality traits in all walks of life. Susan understands that the little things matter, especially for lifeforms that cherish the sanctity of home and the comfort in routine. Susan comments, "I love how cats can have such distinctive personalities. This one's a diva, that one thinks he can fit into any shoe, this one can play fetch all day long, that one will hide and hates loud, sudden noises, this one is like the mayor and must know where you are at all times so he can meow his stories at you-- I love all those nuances. A lot of times, you need to earn that recognition as 'one of the clan,' and that makes knowing a cat that much more treasured." Susan has well over 2 decades of experience with being a cat parent, with a particular soft spot for Siamese (like her first childhood pet) and rescues. Although Susan does not currently have a pet, she nurtures a small home garden and enjoys painting pet portraits.

“Our family isn’t complete without two very special parts of our heart- our cats Obie and Pineapple Bun! When we need a cat-sitter, Su is our golden gal! She understands our OCD, and how important our cats’ care is to us! She really puts us- and our kitties- at ease! Su is dependable, open with communication, and has a heart of gold. Would highly recommend!” -Alex & Marisa W.

"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!

"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.

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!

"I love how cats have so many different personalities. Each cat is so different and that makes my job/life so fun! The joy that they bring to us is unmatched!"
Growing up my family always had dogs but never cats. I didn’t really know any cats until I met my boyfriend! His cat Tigger was the cutest chunkiest gal I’ve ever seen and we instantly had a connection. I felt so honored considering her tough history with people. Ever since then, I have fallen in love with cats so of course I had to adopt my own- Nemo and Boo (she’s in the picture with me). Having 3 cats has given me lots of experience that I’m so thankful for. Before I started at The Comforted Kitty, I was cat sitting for neighbors while they were out of town. Thanks to my neighbors I gained lots of experience caring for cats. I have a passion for learning and understanding all different types of animals and I love how The Comforted Kitty has introduced me to so many cat friends! I am excited to be able to help you by caring for your pets while you are away. Your babies will be cared for and loved just as if they were my own!

"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.

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.

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.

"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!

"The thing I love the most about cats is their independence and their self-loving nature. Whenever I'm having a bad day, there's no doubt that a cat on my lap will fix everything!"
Hi, I'm Susannah. I am an animal lover and own two cats -- but let's be honest - they're the ones who own me! One of my cats, Jeromeo, was first a feral cat who moved in and adopted me last year. My other cat, Celia Cruz, I adopted from a shelter here in Oakland, 11 years ago. I also care for several other feral cats in the area and I have been doing this since 2006 when I moved into the neighborhood. As a teenager and young adult, I had a small business walking dogs and feeding cats in my neighborhood in Marin County. When I'm not hanging out with cats, I like to make art, salsa dance or play the piano. I am a mother of a 7 year old boy who is also an avid cat lover!

My name is Zoe, and I have loved cats my whole life. My mom always told me that from the moment I was able to speak, I was talking about cats! I have had many cats in my lifetime come and go and currently have two lovely cats of my own who I adore. I have a lot of experience in animal caretaking since a young age-- taking care of neighbor's pets while they were on vacation was my first job. Then, in 2017, I worked for a dog daycare center, and managed many different dogs at once, which was lots of fun but a lot of work! At the Comforted Kitty I have had so much fun meeting all sorts of different cats, and spending time with them is one of my favorite things in the world.

"I love a cat's unique ability to communicate everything they want and need if we just take the time to really listen and their amazing ability to show unconditional love through a simple head butt or gentle touch of their paw."
I have always had a cat throughout my life. All have been rescues or strays and each one has their own wonderful story and a huge impact on the shaping of my love for and dedication to animals. I currently have a beautiful little calico kitty named Annie who is probably the most spoiled little girl you have ever met. (As she should be!) I “catified” my studio apartment in San Francisco when I first rescued her as a tiny little <2lb girl and she can literally go up and down towers, around the ceiling on a carpeted trail, through tunnels and up and down staircases on the walls. It's quite entertaining when she gets the zoomies! I truly believe that animals deserve all the best love and care and I bring all of this to you when I sit for your fur baby. I know how hard it is to leave them when we have to, and I treat yours as I would want my little Annie to be treated. Daily check-ins with pictures and videos are a given and I follow mom & dad’s instructions to the letter. I also try to see them at the same time each day, as I know how important routine is for our babies. I have been working with The Comforted Kitty since last year and I have met so many wonderful people and fantastic cats, and I feel very fortunate to be able to provide some peace of mind for you. I have even helped some (per owner’s request) with behavior issues and have taught others tricks like “sit”, “paw” and “say please” I have honestly fallen in love with each one and treat them as if they were my own. I go at their pace and respect their boundaries and have yet to meet a kitty that wasn’t a friend within the first visit.

"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.

"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.

"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!

"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.

"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.

Inna C.
"The most I love in cats is discovering a cat's personality and developing a trusting relationship. Most cats are quick to enjoy spending some playtime with me, but I also like the challenge of rousing an interest in the most serious cats and creating a trusting relationship with cats who are shy to communicate, even if it takes more time."
My name is Inna and I am an unconditional cat lover. Ever since I can remember, I've always had a cat. My parents taught me how to take proper care of them and treat them as a part of the family. A couple of years ago I moved here from Ukraine and started my life from the beginning. I didn't plan to get a cat at first, but somehow it always just happens. I just meet them on the street and they decide to stay with me. That's how I met my adult black and white cat and then a few years later, a young, pregnant tortoiseshell spotted cat roamed into my home and later gave birth to 5 adorable little kitties at my house. One of the kittens didn't seem to want to be adopted at all and ran away every time anyone came to see her. She was proving it quite impossible to put her into another family so even my husband said, "Fine, if she wants to stay so much, let her stay!" And now I am a happy cat mom of three. 😄 Over the course of all these years, I became very good at interpreting cat body language and understanding their moods and their wishes. I have two other jobs besides cat sitting: I work at a family owned company that recycles used cooking oil and as an event decorator specializing in balloons. However cat sitting brings me the most positive emotions and leaves me happy and relaxed at the end of every cat sitting session.

Kat A.
SITTER (EAST BAY)
"What I love most about cats is that you have to work to gain their trust and affection. It’s a fun challenge I’m always up for."
Kat loves cat sitting because she finds cats to be the sweetest, most genuine animals, and it makes her day to make friends with a particularly shy kitty. She usually has a way of making even the most skittish ones come out and play. Kat believes that every animal is so different, but they’re all very innocent and being with them is such a nice break from reality for her. She knows how scary it can be to leave your pets behind while you’re away, and she wants to make sure everyone is able to be comfortable knowing their cats are safe and happy. Kat had an escape-artist black cat for 2 years who enjoyed leashed walks, being carried on her shoulder, and doing backflips chasing after toys. She also has watched friends and family members cats for years. Kat happily serves Oakland, Alameda, Emeryville, and Berkeley.

“Knowing that someone who likes cats (and that cats like) will be taking care of ours, and will actually engage with her.

Thanks Kat!” -Pete and Kate R. (Berkeley)

“How kind our sitter, Kat, was with us and our kittens. How clear and communicative she was and the timeliness of each update really put our hearts and minds at ease and allowed us to enjoy our vacation. Thank you and thanks to Kat who really was just lovely to our pets and us.” -Cruz G. (Oakland)

“Kitty and her kittens appreciated Kat’s visits, the tired momma certainly needed the help! She made sure they were all fed and that everyone was accounted for.” – Sarah F. (Oakland)

“Kat always made sure my 3 cats were entertained, fed, and put inside at night. She gets along with all of them, from the cuddly 3 year old to the gruff 8 year old, and they come running as soon as they see her walk up.” – Zack R. (Pleasant Hill)

“Hi Kat! Just wanted to say belatedly thanks so so much for your always amazing photographs and updates, they really give us peace of mind while we’re away! I’m glad Elliot cuddled with you :)” – Stephanie Y. (Oakland)

Mike C.

“What I like most about cats is their unpredictability. Cats are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
Mike loves cat sitting because each cat has a unique personality, bond and way of communicating. He believes cats are very intelligent which makes discovering each personality very rewarding. Being a cat lover and owner for 20 plus years has given Mike the skills and ability to easily establish a caring relationship with each one. Mike is the son of a pet sitter and over the years has learned the ropes of pet care in both areas of medical and emotional support from his mother. Mike is currently the owner of a rescue kitty named Smokey. Cats bring so much joy to a home and Mike is thrilled to provide excellent service and care to each kitty as if they were his own.​ Mike happily serves cities across the South Bay.

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.

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.

"I love cats because they're each special and unique. If they accept you and love you, it's everything! Having a cat around is soothing; hearing that purr, watching them play, it always brings me peace and happiness!"
I grew up with cats and have never been without at least one. I believe that a house is not a home without a cat! One of the first cats that I remember as a kid was diabetic. Her name was Kitten. My Mom would give her shots of insulin twice a day. Despite that, she was healthy and lived to be 13. I think that's why I now have a soft spot for kitties that are a bit different. Along with a dog and a parrot, I have six cats and three of them have special needs. Two of my babies are tripods and one was born with a neurological disorder. Don't worry, she's actually a very sweet and happy little girl with the normal projected life span of any other cat. The people that are close to me know that I'm obsessed with two things, cats and hockey (Go Knights Go!). During hockey season, I go to as many games as I can. In the summer months I enjoy being surrounded by nature and taking photos of the wildlife. I'm also perfectly happy staying at home, relaxing by the pool and having friends over. I mostly keep busy with fostering. I always have foster cats and have had as many as 12 fosters in the house, in addition to my own. I have also fostered a few dogs and "foster failed" my current dog Sadie, an adorable shitzu. It's truly a special feeling knowing that you have helped an animal find their forever home...a cat or dog that would have otherwise lived on the streets or died in a shelter. Animals are simply my passion and I love taking care of them all!

"I love the way you can put anything down in front of a cat and they just have to tap it! They are so intelligent, fiercely independent, unbelievably flexible, the best snugglers, self cleaning and can make anything they do look cute! There is so much about them that amazes me and there is no greater love than that of a cat."
Hi, my name is Judy and I currently have 5 kitties that either found me or that I rescued. I use the word ‘currently’ because it is always subject to change! I live by the motto, “What’s one more cat?” For many years I used to treat myself to a new kitty from the shelter every Christmas. That’s how I ended up with 13 and decided I needed to stop doing that. The minute I touch a kitty, I fall in love with it. So please know, if I take care of your cat(s), I am going to love it like it was my own. I have had a plethora of animals of all kinds my whole life but cats have always been my greatest love. I’ve had cats that wouldn’t use the litterbox and cats that were biters and cats that were bullies and cats that tore up my furniture, but I never loved them any less. I knew that they needed to be taken care of and I managed to always make it work. I am proud to say that I have found several missing cats over the years because I know the best time to look for them is in the early morning hours (1-4am) and I will spend hours just sitting quietly and listening, and I will do it endlessly. I grew up with cats and have had my own my entire life and I will continue to always have them in my life. I have already decided that eventually I will adopt only senior cats. Nothing could soothe my soul more than to know they are in a loving home when it comes their time to cross over the Rainbow Bridge. Judy happily serves Las Vegas.

Hi, My name is Darcee! I’ve been an animal lover My whole life. I’ve been taking care of animals (not just My own) for the past 7 years. I have a cat of My own that I found when she was just a few weeks old, her name is Blueberry but everyone calls her Mama, and she’s a 13 year old Russian Blue that is Our house manager. I also have a few dogs; Elton, Ru, & Bruce, and they all listen to her ruling with the utmost respect! All following her lead when it comes time to start the “dinner parade”. I love the way these animals care for and teach us so much throughout their lives. Being around animals so much, I feel like I can create a bond with just about any animal. Did I mention that I also help care for a few horses? Animals are some of the best parts of living!!! Cats are extra special, and becoming your cats friend is at the top of My list! And I will be patient because I know it’ worth it! Spending time with animals is My life purpose and My passion. Some of My other passions are silversmithing and jewelry making.

"What I love most about cats are their personalities, their independent yet loving (when they want to of course) attitude and muffin looking paws."
Trisha's love of cats began in childhood. Her family always had one or two indoor cats growing up in Minnesota and she felt an intuitive connection with them. She remembers the first kitten she picked out at the pet store, a gray kitten with white paws and a pink nose. She named her Snickers and learned to take care of her at a young age. Through her adventures and joy in taking care of her own cats, she fell naturally into taking care of other peoples cats. Trisha has taken care of young to old cats with various personalities and temperaments. She currently lives with a sweet, hilarious, 3 year old, tuxedo cat named Natasha. Today, Trisha works as a part time cat-sitter and full time as an art lead for a VR gaming company. Her background and education is centered around graphic design and animation production. She is a published author of a self acceptance guidebook for young girls. She loves hiking, reading, painting, writing, yoga and traveling. Her favorite place to hike is Big Sur, California.

"Cats are such interesting and intelligent creatures and each one is so unique. Their personalities and attitudes can have you wondering what's really going on inside their little heads, but the serotonin boost from hearing a mew or a purr, or getting a headbutt is unmatched. "
Hi, I'm Maggie! I'm originally from the Bay Area and moved to Las Vegas in 2020. I've owned many cats throughout my life, whether they found me or I found them. Currently I have two cats- a 6yo shy and quiet boy that moved here with me, his name is Peanut (aka Piggy) and a 2yo vocal and cuddly boy that recently adopted us, we're calling him Yuki (aka JustABaby; pictured). I spent a lot of time caring for friends' and neighbors' animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, etc) growing up. I've always loved and been drawn to animals of all kinds, but cats hold a special place in my heart; caring for them is fun and fulfilling. If I'm not hanging out with a cat, I'm either playing video games, doing yoga, or at a metal/hardcore show.

"The biggest reason why I love cats is that they provide constant entertainment, even when they aren’t trying. No other animal purposefully knocks things off counters, make chirping sounds at birds in the window, makes biscuits, explores plastic bags out of curiosity, and goes crazy for catnip the way cats do!"
My name is Maegan and I am 29 years old. I am the mother of four fabulous felines; Phantom, Nemo, Winnie (Winifred) and Suki (Sukeena). I have been obsessed and passionate about cats since I was a child. I believe I was put on this earth to care for and nurture the feline population. Besides having four cats of my own, I am also a lead volunteer and feline mentor at the Sacramento SPCA, where I have been volunteering for the past three years. I have such a big heart for these animals, and I consider every cat I meet a part of my extended family. Maegan happily serves kitty clients across the Sacramento area.

“Maegan watched my two cats for me while my husband and I went out of town for a week. She was the best we could have asked for! She came by our house every single day to make sure they were taken care of and even sent me pictures. Those pictures were just what I needed to brighten my day. She’s very trustworthy and genuine. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to have someone take care of their cats who truly cares. 5 stars 10 out of 10!” -Heather (Sacramento)

Alex R.

"My favorite thing about cats is just how unique each one’s personality is. Plus how precious their little purrs and meows are, of course!"
Alex was born in the Bay Area, but now resides in Sacramento. Growing up, she had a dog but was in love with animals of all kind. As a young teenager, she became friends with someone who had several cats and realized just how fun they could be. At a spur of the moment adoption event, she convinced her mom to let her get a kitten, and that’s when things really clicked into place with her. She realized just how much she loves cats - now she has two, including that first cat that changed everything - and even wants to open a rescue at some point. Alex loves helping take care of other people’s animals when they’re away, and did pet sitting in the Bay Area before moving to Sacramento to be closer to her mom. When she’s not hanging out with animals, Alex enjoys watching horror movies, cooking, and going to concerts. Alex gladly serves communities across Sacramento.

Hello, I'm Ashley, and I would love to care for your kitties! I have two cats and a dog at home, and I am happy to treat your fur babies like my own while you are gone. I have years of experience caring for a range of animals professionally, including medication giving and charming the extra-shy cats. I love to send photos and anecdotes during every visit, and try to respond asap to any e-mails or texts from you! I know I love to have regular updates if I need to leave my cats in someone else's hands, so I will do the same for you. I am very organized and clean, so you can rest assured that I will keep your home just as tidy as you left it. I can't wait to meet you and your cats!

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 🤟

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.

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.

“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)

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 love the different personalities and quirks each cat has. Every cat is different and requires a different approach to gain their trust! It's a wonderful feeling when a cat finally trusts you!"
Greetings cat lovers! My name is Andrew. I use to be an assistant editor working on documentaries, I went to school for film/televison/media thinking that was my career path however life always throws a curveball now I'm here to spoil your cats. I love meeting new kitties and seeing all the interesting quirks and personality traits they carry. How they like to play, how they socialize, and how they show appreciation. I understand every cat socializes differently and I'm eager to learn from them!

"A cat's love and companionship is truly incomparable, and it's such an amazing feeling to earn their trust and respect. I also adore the relaxing hum of their purrs. 😻"
Hi, I'm Becca! (Also known by my family as the Cat Whisperer) I've always felt a deep connection to cats. I grew up surrounded by dog lovers, but insisted that our home wasn't complete without a kitty companion. My parents used to laugh at me when I'd refer to cleaning out the litter box as, "digging for buried treasure" (now I can understand why 😹) but I've loved everything about cats and caring for them for as long as I can remember. In college, I spent time working at both a veterinary clinic and pet boarding facility, where I gained so much knowledge and experience about the wellbeing and medical side of caring for dogs and cats (and the occasional snake, turtle, bird, or rodent). Although not the right career path for me, this experience opened the door for me to start pet sitting, which has been so fun and fulfilling. Over the last 10+ years I've cared for the pets of many friends and family members, becoming the go-to sitter for other cat owners in my life, and I've been pet-sitting professionally since 2019. I currently have a 6-year-old black cat named Mr. Bumbles, who I adopted through a cat cafe in Denver, CO at only 2 months old. If I'm being honest, he adopted me when he cuddled on my shoulder for 2+ hours until I finally took the hint and filled out the paperwork. We've been bonded ever since! We stretch together in the morning, paint canvases (he mostly steals the paint brushes) and make art (as a previous freelance model, we've even done a couple photoshoots together), have long conversations back and forth, eat meals and snacks together, and cuddle together every night. I've been called a crazy cat lady, but I know we just have a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, soulmate bond. I know firsthand how important it is to find someone calm, compassionate, and trustworthy to love and care for your feline when you're away and aren't able to, and I'm beyond happy to be that person for you!

Sheiley R.
"What I love about cats is their unique traits! I love meeting a cat and just being able to tell about their personality based on a small window of interaction. They’re so funny in what they find curious and I love how they know what they want and how they choose to communicate with us."
My name is Sheiley Rios and I have been part of The Comforted Kitty company since August 2021! In my experience I have learned so much, ranging from administering vaccinations to cats with medical conditions to simply giving them oral medication(s). Cats I’ve encountered have been overall very friendly and curious; though I’ve had a few that were more cautious and feisty and that’s been just as wonderful! Patience is a strong suit of mine and I always put the comfort of the cat before anything else (hence the company name 😸). I have always loved animals but only recently got my very own cat at home and I have been able to learn more and more about her body language and how she chooses to communicate with me about her needs 🧡! My wonderful cat (Pantera) and I love to take naps together and play with bird toys she has lying around. We also love to go on walks (she’s either on a leash or in a bubble backpack) and look at ducks and fishes! She likes to smell me after every cat sitting appointment I have and whiff what my cat clients smell like ! My favorite part of the job is observing each cats personality! I love seeing how they approach a stranger in their home and watch them trust me and allow me to be part of their play time, earning their trust is by far the most fun of everything!

"I love cats because they are chill, intelligent, and will always listen when you need a furry friend to talk with. Plus they know when you need some extra cuddling after a long day at work."
There has been a cat in my life for the past two decades. Do enjoy the shared love a feline companion provides. My new girl Prin has been with me for almost 8 months now and she is a shelter rescue. Yeah, that cat is all about cuddling. My original pair X (the boy) and Py (the girl) lived full lives, but age did catch up with both. I have been in LA for over 20 years now. Accounting person by day and teach yoga in my spare time. Have also done my share of theater, improv and working on independent features. Another activity that keeps me busy every now and then is taking care of friend’s cats when they are traveling. There is no better feeling than knowing that your furry kids are being taken care of while you are enjoying being out of town.

"What I love most about cats is a good lap cat and also how independent they are."
I’ve had cats since I was a kid, complete with the summer our cat Thomasina had 4 kittens that I named Fluffy, Buffy, Tuffy and Duffy. I was raised on a farm in Ohio so we had plenty of room and kept them all. I did cat adoptions for about 2 years and worked part-time at an animal hospital for 6 1/2 years. I’m a two cat operation and always have two. Right now it’s Dagny and Emerson. Both rescues. I love college football, traveling, reading and living in Los Angeles.

"I love that cats each have such distinct personalities that, when given the opportunity, will always shine bright. From sassy to chill, each one is unique and ultra special."
I have had cats ever since I can remember. Some of my first memories involve cats. The first pet of my own was a cat who lived to 19. She was the epitome of calico and certainly had the attitude that some people equate to calicos and tortoiseshells. It wasn’t until years later that I decided to try fostering orphaned bottle kittens. Once I started doing that I “foster failed” a few times and it seems that whenever I need a new cat in my family one just finds us. With work, I love the challenging cats. Often it simply takes quiet moments just existing in the same space before eventually the kitty comes around and I’ve made a new friend for life. In my spare time I love to crochet cat toys and beds and take road trips and, of course, spend time with my dogs and cats.

"Having cats in my life and caring for them brings me joy. I love seeing their individual personalities and getting to know them. It is such a magical thing when a cat finally decides you’ve earned their trust and love."
I have had cats in my life ever since I was four years old when my mum got us a cat for Christmas. It was love at first sight. I am a cat lady through and through. Currently, I have 6 cats (Cal, Sushi, Marzipan, Ivy, Frumpkin, and Hansje), all rescues. They are my precious babies and bring me so much joy, even if they decide to destroy my latest craft project or attack my hair in the middle of the night. Thirty years of having cats around means I am extremely comfortable with feeding them, changing litter boxes, playtime, and cuddle sessions. I am also comfortable with administering oral medications and even inhalers.

"I love that cats are independent, beautiful creatures that love you unconditionally. They never cease to amaze me with their quirky antics & unique purrsonalities."
I had quite the assortment of pets growing up including dogs, cats, birds, fish, rabbits, rats, turtles, a chicken and even a cow named Moo!. Needless to say, I love all animals but my true love has always been for the felines. I distinctly remember one summer morning waiting at the bus stop, a conversation between mom to mom about a cat found in a nearby tree to being greeted by that same mom as I stepped off the bus that afternoon and picturesque it was as I walked home clumsily yet oh-so-happily with my lunchbox and bookbag under one arm and my new Siamese meow-meow under the other! Although there were fur babies that came before, Kit-Kat was officially the first pet that was mine all mine- loving and loyal throughout all of my school years and then some. Present day kitty crew would be my eldest Bentley, youngest Caleb, my Step-Kitty Ditto and my meant-to-be chaotic kittens (turning 6 this month) Ezra, Felix, Frick, Frack, Jenks, Stash & Whodini. Quite the handful at times but can not imagine life without them- never ceasing to amaze me with their unique purrsonalities! I do my best to live in the now, finding humor all around me, enjoying the simplicity in life, remembering to never take life for granted, always listening to music or attending live shows, discovering photo ops from unique points of view while wandering in my Jeep exploring abandoned, haunted, historical & the obscure all the while being silly goofy crazy cat lady me.

"I love how independent and loyal cats are. They don't trust just anyone but once you've finally gained that trust, they're the , cutest, sweetest most loving animals."
Besides my own, I've been taking care of cats for almost my whole life for a variety of people including my friends, family, and neighbors. I had my first kitty when I was about 6 years old; her name was Molly and she was a beautiful white cat. She got along amazingly with our dog at the time, SamRex. My love for animals started out young and all the other pets I had contributed to that. My current cat, Scout, is a very loving and sassy 6 year old Tabby. Her favorite activity is asking for pets and making buiscuits. I also had a cat before her who was a black cat named Lucky and he was the sweetest most loving cat.

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!

"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.

"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!

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.

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. There is a $15 fee for this meeting.
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!

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.
Do you have references available?
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!

Crazy about cats as much as we are? If you answered YES! than we are looking for you.

At Comforted Kitty, it’s never just about being a cat sitter. It’s about providing companionship and excellent care to our feline clients. Join us and together we will continue to uphold the higest standards in the cat care industry.
