"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.


“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)
