"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)

“Marlene took great care of my cat, sending me updates and pictures of the amazing time she had with her while I was away. I recommend her and give her five stars for the care my cat received. Thanks Marlene!” -Rachel R. (Santa Ana)

“Marlene was wonderful with our pets, we were away 5 days and she turned up without fail to take care of our 4 cats, they absolutely loved her, she sent me pictures of them playing which really stopped me worrying about them, I would definitely use Marlene again.” -Lyn P. (Corona Del Mar)

“Marlene has been a great help to me and my cats since last year. She took amazing care of them. My cats love her so much. Every time I was out of town, my cats stayed with Marlene and always came back so fresh and clean. We are so grateful that we know Marlene.” -Shanley S. (Costa Mesa)

“Marlene is very professional, timely and sweet! She has assisted me with my cats and has also taken great care of them on several occasions. I have never had to worry about a thing! I have complete confidence when Marlene is around. :)” -Megan M. (Fountain Valley)

“We are home. Nothing beats seeing a happy kitty waiting for us at home after a long trip. Thank you again for everything, Sponge will definitely miss you🥹” -Yu Y. (Foothill Ranch)
