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!


“We recently moved to a new area and had no one local to watch our kitty. I search the Google and found Comforted Kitty, the reviews are legit! After submitting my request, I was connected with Mary who would be our sitter. She swung by the house to meet our kitty Coconut, he came out right away to greet her which is a good sign! I love the app that accompanies the service, Mary sent me photos and updates of how much Coconut ate and how he was doing. She even grabbed our mail and packages off the porch. Made us feel so much better leaving him for the first time in a new house.
Honestly the perfect sitter service, I wasn’t worried about our kitty and knew he was in good hands. Thank you, Mary! – Andriana G. (San Francisco)
We moved to a new city last year and needed to find a cat sitter. Came across The Comforted Kitty via an internet search and have used them ever since! We were paired with Mary who has been wonderful, she genuinely cares about the wellbeing of our kitties and provides photos and notes for every day we’re gone. I feel like we have a friend watching the house and kitties when we leave! The cats have responded well to having the same sitter each time, their stress levels are much lower when we leave for vacations. Thank you so much Mary and Comforted Kitty for the great care!” – Andriana G. (Vallejo)

“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)

“We did make it home to the kitties– thank you again for looking (and cleaning up) after them while we were away! So happy that they feel so comfortable with you!” -Michele S. (Vacaville)
