Meet Our Team
Our sitters all have years of experience volunteering at shelters, owning cats themselves, and even working with other cat sitting companies. They are all background checked, bonded, and trained by us. They will absolutely deliver the same level of service as the owners deliver. We have never received anything but praise for the wonderful sitters on our staff.

Outside of work and studying for Finance, Alethea enjoys reading, creative projects, and surfing YouTube for that next hit song or Facebook for amazing cat videos.
Daria moved to the Bay Area with her family at age 6 and has been here ever since! She has loved being around animals (cats most of all) since she was a child, but couldn’t have any in the house.

Daria has a BFA from Stephens College, and works as a professional costume designer around the Bay. She loves hiking, sewing, gardening, and befriending every cat she meets!

Emily was destined for cat-ladydom from the day she was born and shared her crib with her furry brother. She has worked as a cat whisperer/volunteer with the East Bay SPCA and Miami-Dade County Animal Service (where she adopted her spicy, chatterbox, Finn).
