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)
