Bicycle-traveling nomadic cat lover

Pet care experience

I love cats. (In fact, I have been reading a how-to book to see if I can learn to communicate more effectively with them!) Since I arrived back in Portland in September of 2022 after a year of train and bicycle travels around the US and Canada, I have been working as a full-time cat sitter for a variety of friends and clients. I really enjoy connecting with the cats and taking care of them; sometimes it is very hard to say goodbye to the kitties when it's time to move on! I have received consistently glowing reviews from the people whose cats I have stayed with.

Maren was wonderful! She stayed with and took care of our two cats while we were out of town for a little over a week. She was very communicative and kept us informed the whole time we were gone! We came home to a clean house and happy kitties. Would definitely book again!

Maren is incredible. I hired her for a two week stay with my cat at my apartment while I went to Africa. I felt at ease knowing she was staying with my boy; and I was able to enjoy my vacation worry free. Maren knows a lot about animals and can anticipate their behaviors. She is kind, authentic, and experienced. She is thoughtful, and when I did have internet access there was an email from her with photos and positive updates about my boy. She is patient. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and encourage you to do the same!

Maren is a great cat and house sitter! She was friendly, conscientious and reliable throughout the process and stay. She sent me pics of our cat each morning, which gave me peace of mind, and kept our house super tidy and clean. Our cat Laszlo seemed content and happy (and well brushed!) when we returned. Definitely would recommend her services and hope to hire her again!

Maren was wonderful with my cat, Mimi. She has a nice, calming energy that rubs off on people and animals. She took good care of my house too and asked questions when she had them. I appreciated the photo updates too. I highly recommend Maren for housesitting and/or pet sitting.

This is my full-time lifestyle. I work from wherever I stay, so I have plenty of time available to care for cats and keep them company.
