Jay Ruiz -  Owner / Cat Sitter | service area: Oakland, Berkeley, and Alameda

My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when cats weren’t a part of it. Cats are my passion! Today I am a proud cat Dad to Mavis, a stray cat I found living under an overpass. She is my heart and soul and has me wrapped around her little paws. 


Over the years, friends and family have entrusted their cats in my care because they trusted my abilities and knew that I would treat their cats as I would my own. Spending my days with cats is the ultimate job. Kinda hard to even call it a “job.” Who can resist purrs, wet kisses, and lap naps? Certainly not me.

I love to talk to all of our amazing clients about their cats and offer up suggestions on care. It's a pleasure to work with families to plan the best visits possible so that your fur babies get outstanding care while you are away! 

I grew up surrounded by pets, so becoming a cat sitter has been a dream come true! I have three cats of my own, and when I'm not with them, I love exploring new restaurants with my husband.

I’ve volunteered with Hopalong Animal Rescue, and I’ve loved every second of it. I’ve also cat sat for family and friends when they’ve gone out of town. I couldn’t imagine my life not being surrounded by furry friends, and I can’t wait to meet you and your cat family!

I understand the importance of knowing your cat has the best care while you are away from home, so you can relax and be worry-free. Besides caring for kitties, I enjoy my career as a fitness instructor.
