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.


“Thanks so much for the time, attention, and all the love you’ve shown our baby! 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 would not hesitate to ask you to watch Isabela on any upcoming trips, and hope you can forge a growing bond each time. Thank you so much!!!” -Matthew S. (San Bruno)

“They were both excited to see me. Didn’t seem anxious at all when I got home. Thanks for doing such a great job with them and keeping them happy while I was out ☺️” -Micah K. (Burlingame)

“I read your texts over and over again. They are so comforting during these long trips. Thank you for being so loving with my kitties. I appreciate you so much.” -Evelyn L. (Burlingame)
