Kristen was an amazing cat-sitter! She sent pictures every day, kept the house super clean, was overall very nice, respectful and easy to talk to. The best testament was how happy my cat was. Normally when I go out of town for some time and come back, she's super needy and I can tell that she's distressed. After Kristen, she was totally fine and acting the same as always, which is great peace of mind ...

Extremely professional and friendly! I felt so much better leaving my cat at home because of Kristen. During our meet and greet, I could tell that she was an animal lover and this was so comforting! Highly recommend!

Kristen came through and helped us out in a pinch, again! She came and walked our pup while my wife was out of town working and helped us survive a week on our own. Punctual, polite, and a fantastic dog walker. Thank you!!

  • Verified Background Check

Work from home, friend to all pets!

Hi! I'm Kristen — bonafide cat lady, most likely to talk to a dog before their human in public.

I live in NE Portland with my partner and our 2 cats, and feel very lucky to work from home or work easily on the go. It's always great to get out of the house and walk a pup (yes, even in February), to run around the city meeting new pets, or to housesit a furry friend ...

What Kristen would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences, I'd love to meet your dog or cat before sitting or walking to get a sense of their personality and energy.

When Kristen watches your pet

I love taking very long neighborhood walks with your pup, and have a great dog park next to my house! Other specialties include excessive amounts of fetch and reassuring your pal that they are indeed, a very good dog.

I also have a special knack for getting to know kitty's true personalities — whether it's sitting and snuggling for hours, playing hide and seek, or giving your little weirdo some food and some space, I LOVE THEM ALL.
