Crescent City Cat Sitters

The idea for Crescent City Cat Sitters came about during Miranda's time working as a cat-sitter for an amazing cat-sitting company in Nashville, Music City Cats.  She loved being a cat-sitter, and it made her happy to become friends with the cats of Nashville.  However, she moved back to New Orleans, and realized she had to leave behind all the cats she met and experience she gained.  Unless…

She debated applying to be a sitter with a few New Orleans all around pet-sitting companies, but her passion was cats.  She was a true cat person, and most other pet-sitters she found seemed to be focused on dogs.  Yes, people can love both cats and dogs equally, but she knew her strength was of the feline kind.  She was more connected with cat behavior and familiar with their habits.  The best dog walkers might not make the best cat sitters, and vice versa. 

As time progressed, the travel bug bit Miranda and she was ready for her next chapter. Her sitter, Rhonda, introduced Becky and Steven to Miranda. After much discussion and training, Becky and Steven took over Crescent City Cat Sitters.

When we told people we were cat-sitters, some would say, “But don’t cats like to do their own thing..?”  In a way, yes.  But cats are more social than people may think.  Most cats we visited were still rubbing on us like crazy for pets as we left.  And the shy ones only needed a little time and patience to emerge and say hello. 

Crescent City Cat Sitters allows your cat to stay comfortable in their own space while you’re away, which keeps their stress level down and makes everything easier.

About Me

Hi, my name is Miranda! I’ve been around cats my whole life, and I love it!  I'm originally from a small town in Indiana, where I grew up with many outdoor cats coming and going from our porch at all times.  We usually had a few new litters every summer. (Now I know the importance of TNR!)

I attended college at Ball State in Muncie, Indiana. After graduation, I moved to New Orleans, where I lived for a year and a half before moving to Atlanta, and then Nashville.  During this time I volunteered with the Louisiana SPCA, helped to feed a cat colony, and traveled to CatCon in Los Angeles (totally worth it!).  The first cat café I went to was Java Cats in Atlanta, and I’ve made it my mission to visit as many as I can!

Now I’m back in New Orleans to stay, and I just adopted a kitten from the Louisiana SPCA, a lynx-point siamese named Kosmo! He's full of energy and I already have way too many pictures of him 🙂
