About Michelle

I'm 35 years old, I work in non-profit management overseeing contracts for social housing and homeless services providers. I live in a condo East Vancouver with my husband, and until recently our 15 year old cat. I love walking around the city and indulging in the many cultural food offerings.

I feel very privileged to have had pets my entire life, mostly cats but dogs, reptiles and rodents as well. I know how challenging it can be to find someone to look after a furry family member and place a lot of value in folks who help me care for mine. As an adult I have had two cats for upwards of 15 years, but lost my guy Oskar a couple of years ago, and my gal Ophelia in November '19 due to failing health/old age, so I'm looking to have more furry faces in my life. I’m quite fond of most pets other than giant spiders! Nothing gives me more joy in life than sticking my face in a soft cat belly or having a good snuggle but I understand and respect cats with all personalities and affection levels.

I appreciate a clean space, and I’ll ensure it’s kept clean while you’re away; I’m not afraid of frequently scooping litter boxes and sweeping up the sand they leave behind. I promise to care for your cat the same way I expect my queen to be cared for.

I work in the DTES/Strathcona area and live in Hastings-Sunrise/East Village, so am happy to look after any felines nearby. My visits can be up to a half hour long (depending on travel time) and can include feeding, scooping litter box, administering medication, brushing, playing, snuggling and a lot of love. Sweeping and plant watering are also included ;).

Michelle was an absolutely, amazing cat sitter. She provided daily photos / updates and was very quick with responding. I always get worried when I have to leave my cat for longer periods but she eased any worries I had by doing such a good job. She even did the litter and tidied the floors, which was so nice to come home to after a long trip. And Lewis loved her! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter!

Michelle was lovely and accommodating. Her communication about Pepper was sweet and enthusiastic. I will definitely use Michelle again.
