My first New York experience of sitting was when I baby sat a friend's cat, named Mamie Jean. He traveled a lot for work. This was in the late 1980's. She was a sweet cat.
I have since had three cats of my own in New York. My first kitty started out as a boarder. The person who was to adopt her after a month, could no longer do so. Cinnamon was a scared kitty and over the years I learned how to understand her "particular ways" and just love her, play with her (and know when to leave her alone!) I watched her grow comfortable and happy. I had my baby Cinnamon for eight wonderful years.
My two boys, Sammi and Eli were rescues as well. I received them when they were three months old. They were so happy being in each other's company and they played a lot! One of their favorite games in the beginning was "let's see how many times we can hit Mommy in the head to wake her up so she can play with US!"
I have had thirteen wonderful years with Eli and 17 years with Sammi. I believe that this new chapter in my "feline life experience" will manifest more adventures with the most interesting of furry ones, cats.

Rosa was very friendly, communicative, and professional. And our cat, Henry, really loved his stay at Rosa's house.
