Melanie Gorenbein with Daisy

Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles
Lead Cat Care Specialist

Beverly Hills Cat Sitter MelanieMelanie is our Lead Cat Care Specialist and is the first staff member to join JFC! In addition to providing our kitty clients with loving care, Melanie also assists with the hiring and training our sitters as well as taking care of things in the Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles office when Rita is in North Carolina.

Melanie is a true cat lover, often caring for and feeding the feral cats in her neighborhood. Pearl the kitty and Amy the dog are the current loves of Melanie’s life, and they happily share her with your kitties. In addition to working for us at Cats 90210 Los Angeles Cat Sitting, Melanie also runs an antique jewelry business. Melanie recently added a new kitty, Vincent Van Kitty, to her family. A stray orange tabby with severe ear mites, Vincent was named after Van Gogh, due to his “missing” ear. After many months and much patience as Melanie tended to his wounded ear, she was finally able to coax Vincent to come inside out of the rain during those bad December storms. Vincent has been completely accepted into the household by kitty Pearl and doggie Amy, and can often be seen snoozing by the front window.

Update: Amy was a very old doggie, and after having a wonderful life with Melanie, Amy has gone over the Rainbow Bridge. Knowing there are so many animals in need of homes, Melanie went to a local shelter and chose to bring home a dog who otherwise may not have had a chance at life. New doggie Theodore is learning how to be a well-behaved boy and is thriving in his new home with Melanie, Pearl, Vincent, and brand-new kitty addition, Alister.

Jemma Rane with Seymour

Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles
Lead Cat Care Specialist

Los Angeles Miracle Mile Cat Sitter JemmaJemma is originally from Toronto, Ontario and has been an animal lover her entire life, rescuing any stray cat, dog, or bird that crosses her path. She shares her home with her husband, two kids, two cats, one dog, and one bunny. Her cats, Seymour and Charlie, are learning to accept that their canine sibling, Izzy, is here to stay. They will swat her nose every now and then, just to remind her that it was their home first. Seymour kitty can often been found in Jemma’s shoulders or in my arms as she is doing things around the house. If there was room, Jemma would happily bring home another cat (or two, or three!).

In her previous career, Jemma worked as a vet tech in several clinics and shelters before becoming a jewelry designer. Many of her designs are inspired by the animals she adores. You can see her creations at Jemma Jewelry.

Jemma enjoys providing her loving care to our kitty clients whenever their human parents need to be away from home.

Margaux Letargez with Pioupiou

Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles
Lead Cat Care Specialist

Brentwood Cat Sitter MargauxMargaux is our European imported cat lover. Raised in the French countryside, she fell in love with cats at three years old when a lady put a calico kitten in her stroller. Since then, she always lived in a home filed with both domesticated and feral cats, all of whom taught her how to behave to earn their trust.

In 2015, when her husband had the opportunity to work at UCLA, Margaux left her job as a licensed optician and followed him for this great adventure with their tuxedo cat, Pioupiou.

Margaux is thrilled to be part of Just For Cats Pet Sitting.  As she may speak to your cat in French while providing all the love and attention he or she needs, when you come home, your kitty might just greet you with a “Miaou” instead of a “Meow.”

Cyanne Martin with Captain Mal and Zoe

Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles
Cat Care Specialist

Toluca Lake Cat Sitter CyanneBorn in Hollywood (yes, she’s the one), Cyanne can’t remember a time when her house wasn’t blessed with the love of animals. But of all of them, her heart belongs to the felines.

Cyanne and her husband are owned by two 2 and a half year old rescue kitties – a Maine Coon by the name of Captain Mal, who “aims to misbehave” and the conveniently coy ninja cat, Zoe. These committed Serenity/Firefly fans have been the happiest they’ve ever been from the moment these crazy kittens chose them to be theirs.

Malcolm has even become Cyanne’s personal assistant of sorts. When he is not napping or chasing Zoe, he loves helping his mommy with a paw or two on the keyboard – writing one of her screenplays or doing updates to her one woman show. Changing the TV channel to some George Carlin, he even taught her that “Meow” means “Woof “ in cat.

When she is not writing with Captain Mal, Cyanne is both an actress & a philanthropist – helping victims of abuse and also building her ShakespeareTowne; a magical place where people can meet & fall in love with the bard, his characters, his plays & HIS world.

Cyanne is extremely honored and excited to be a part of the Just For Cats Pet Sitting family! She can’t wait to meet your purrrr-fect felines, and is looking forward to loving and pampering all of our wonderful client kitties whenever their humans are away.

Beverly Hills Cat Sitter MiwaMiwa is originally from Tokyo, Japan. She came to Los Angeles to study Art and English. She became a graphic designer, and then motion designer. She also lived in England for 9 years. Wherever she was, Miwa always had dogs, cats, or birds.

Miwa’s cat crossed the rainbow bridge last year at the ripe old age of 19.Since losing her kitty, Miwa has been pouring her all love and attention into fostering kittens and cats. She has rescued over 60 kitties this past year. Most of them came to her dirty and sick, many of them scared of humans. Miwa cleans them, gives them medications, lots of playtime and tons of love, until they become healthy and ready to be adopted to a loving *furever* family.

Recently, Miwa fostered a challenging 7-year-old cat with behavioral problem. He was hissing and swatting at everyone. With Miwa’s patience, care and love, he turned into a sweet, cuddly, playful kitty that loves snuggling in bed with her. Since then, everyone calls Miwa a cat whisperer
.
Miwa say “I will care for your precious baby (babies) with plenty of playtime, attention and lots of love, as if they are one of my very own, so you will have peace of mind while you are away.”

Rachel Travers with Zinnia

Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles
Cat Care Specialist

West Hollywood Cat Sitter RachelRachel has had cats in her life since she was 17 – and almost got kicked out of college for adopting a tiny feral orange tabby. But she insisted on getting “pet permission” from the Dean – and hasn’t had to ask anyone since.

In addition to the original Fritz, Rachel then adopted Morgan (a diabetic cat); Mookie the Maine Coon came next, then Nickel and Ziggy.cu Zinnia is Rachel’s first Tortie and is her constant companion these days. Zinny is loving LA and basking in the sunlight that floods their new home.

Rachel is an LA transplant from the Boston area – for the second time – so the city is not completely new to her. She has a 27-year-old daughter, Nina, who lives four blocks from Rachel’s new home – and who works part-time at Crumbs & Whiskers, the LA cat cafe (she also works in the music business). It is definitely a little family of cat-lovers.

In one of her previous lives, Rachel was a freelance food writer for The Boston Globe and many magazines. She loved the lifestyle and the fabulous food she had – and it also provided her with the flexibility to be a hands-on single mother.

Just For Cats and their petsitting services are perfect for Rachel – and she thinks she will be perfect for her new clients and their furry families.

Ted Naumann with Pushkin

Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles
Cat Care Specialist

Santa Monica Cat Sitter TedTed is a native of Southern California, and has lived in Santa Monica for 30 years. He loves cats and even draws them! In addition to pet-sitting, he is an artist, and was a teacher with LAUSD before retiring. He’s also an avid golfer, reader, and theatre and movie goer.

Ted will care for your cat with attention, love, patience, and fun. He has owned or had cats in his house since he was a teenager. He loves to play with cats with long-handled mouse or feather toys, or whatever your cat likes. He’s affectionate, and yet has the patience to hang in until a reticent or shy cat warms to him. Recently, while visiting his stepbrother Dan and his wife, they were surprised to see Ted giving affection to a cat who usually doesn’t warm up to strangers.

Felines have been his constant companions. One of his more unusual cats was “Freak,” so named because she had 6 toes on her big paws, and she went on to have kittens just like her. “Flo,” so named for Ted’s favorite Italian city, Florence, was a beautiful white calico who had been saved from the streets. Just after Flo reached full size, “Harry,” named after George Harrison, was adopted. With Harry only half-size, Flo started to chase him around the house —“her house.” Harry didn’t hold a grudge against his older bully, but once full-grown, he’d follow her around, batting at her tail. Later, Ted lovingly cared for Harry as he battled diabetes, measuring blood glucose, administering insulin and other medications. Under Ted’s careful and and organized diabetes treatment, Harry lived for 14 years. Caring for Harry was not a task for Ted, but merely strengthened their bond.

It would be Ted’s pleasure to care for your furry feline friend/s.

Cameron Alford with Franco

Just For Cats Pet Sitting Los Angeles
Cat Care Specialist

Santa Monica Cat Sitter CameronCameron originates from Long Island, and since his first day on earth he has been exposed to the lovable nature of cats. His first guardian was a black cat named Ivan, who used to sleep in Cameron’s crib, protecting the newborn Cameron from harm.

Growing up, Cameron and his grandmother would feed the stray cats that roamed the neighborhood, along with taking care of their newborn kittens. All of Cameron’s cats have been rescues and many of his friend’s families would adopt cats directly from him.

In middle school, Cam’s family moved to another part of the island and they took 5 cats with them: Maggie, Purpur along with the triplets Benny, Cleo, and Josie. They left the strays in the safe hands of a cat-loving family. The five felines would takes turns waking Cameron and his sister up for school, always making sure they didn’t sleep in. “Meow, Meow, Meow.”

When Cameron’s grandmother passed, her cat passed away shortly after and Cameron vowed to take care of all the cats in her place. After finishing High School, Cameron lost Purpur at 12 and Benny at 15, and felt like he lost part of his family. Cameron’s sister took Josie and his mother took Cleo when Cam moved to California to attend film school.

When he arrived in Los Angeles, his first roommate was a pet rescue advocate in the area and taught Cameron efficient ways of caring for all animals. Together they cared for the sickest of kittens. Shortly after, Cameron met Franco, a long-haired grey cat with white boots, but couldn’t keep him quite yet. The family who had adopted Franco was nervous about him getting the other animals sick, so Cameron nursed him back to health. He then sent Franco back to the family, but a week later Franco was back. The two haven’t been apart since. Cameron now lives with Franco and his girlfriend and her cat, Snake.

Cameron is an independent filmmaker and has even directed a short mockumentary on the interesting lifestyles of our feline companions.

Having had cats all her life, she accepts each cat for who they are, with their unique personalities. When it comes to cats, everything is on their terms. Always in tune to health issues with cats, she understands that quick action is often needed when health problems are suspected.

One of the things that attracted Lorin to Just For Cats is her own difficulty finding quality care for her own cats. “I myself have had difficulty taking trips, because I have always worried that nobody would care for my cats like I would. I treat every cat in my care with the same sincerity, love, and care as if they were my own so you can travel with peace of mind.”

Lorin is also deeply involved with cat rescue. Cats are a necessary part of life for Lorin, (as they are for all of our JFC staffers), and she can’t imagine her life without them. Sweet purrs make her heart full and happy!

Nikki Woodson and Tiger

Just For Cats Pet Sitting
Client and Reservations Services

LA cat sitting NikkiNikki’s love of kitties became obvious at a very young age. When she was 2 years old, she fell in love with a stray cat and named him Boo Boo because of a wound on his rear. She would hold her finger out and the cat would follow her around. Her parents ended up taking the cat in because of Nikki’s instant love for him. They soon found that Nikki was a magnet for any neighborhood stray and she could get them to come out of hiding when no one when else could.

When she grew up and moved out of the house she had only one requirement of her first apartment; that it was cat friendly. Her first stop after leaving the first month’s rent was to the animal shelter where she made her very first rescue, Tiger, who she still has, 10 years later, along with another kitty she rescued a few years later from another kitty rescue.

Nikki is very excited to be working for Just For Cats, helping to connect other kitty parents with the purrfect kitty care specialists so they can enjoy their time away, knowing we will care for their fur babies and love them while they are away.

Connie with Sneakers and Bandit

Just For Cats Pet Sitting
Client and Reservations Services

LA cat sitting ConnieConnie is originally from Syracuse, New York but has been living in Los Angeles, California since 1993. Always believing she was a “dog person”, she adopted her first kitty, Sneakers (the black kitty with her in the picture) when she was just 4 weeks old and a pretty sick kitty. Sneakers totally stole her heart, so of course and she added Bandit to the family a few weeks later!

Bandit lived to be 16 years old and not long ago Connie lost her beloved Sneakers at age 18. Connie and her fiancee’ Paul have decided to let their broken hearts heal for a while before letting another kitty in but we are betting it won’t be long before there are meows and purrs in their home again!

While they wait, Connie will be busy answering phones and emails, as she works as part of our reservations staff as Just For Cats. Connie knows the concerns kitty parents have when they have to go out of town and get care for their fur babies. She is excited to be a part of the process, to match kitty moms and dads up with the PURRfect kitty care specialist, so they can enjoy their time away from home without worry!

Elijah Jones with (Where’s the Cat?!)
Membership Services and Content Writer

Elijah - Just For Cats Pet Sitting Charlotte Client Services You’re probably wondering why Elijah is the only member of our team who does not have a kitty sitting on his shoulder. Elijah’s first cat was SPUTNIK, the family cat when he was a youngster growing up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He says don’t ask him how Sputnik ended up with the same name as a Russian satellite but that was her name!

Elijah is the newest member of our team and even though he doesn’t own a cat now, he’s been a friend of cats for years.  He asks that you don’t judge him for being more of a dog guy, he’s owned two chocolate Labrador Retrievers in his life, KoKo and Hershey. Sadly, Hershey, his second chocolate Lab had to be put down, after 12 happy years as Elijah’s best friend, just a week before Christmas in 2015.

Elijah’s very excited to be joining our team, and admits that before this experience is all over, we may very well end up turning him into a cat guy. In fact, he has several friends who loves cats as much he loved Koko & Hershey.  He promises to introduce us to Oliver, the friendly feline who belongs to one of his best friends in Hattiesburg. Elijah admits it’s more like his friend belongs to Oliver.  (We know what he means, right?)  Elijah has friends who own both cats and dogs.  He admits to always making friends with the dogs first; he sees cats as a challenge. They probably know he’s been more of a dog person most of his life but Elijah, animal-lover that he is, usually ends up having those kitties rubbing their sides along his legs soon enough.  (Hey, Elijah…cats are smart!  They want to make sure you’re one of the good guys!)

By the way, Elijah has an interesting history all his own. He won’t tell you know old he is (just yet anyway) but in his young adult life, Elijah once weighed 484 pounds. People are always amazed at how much weight he’s lost but Elijah likes to stop them before they start talking about how MUCH weight he’s lost.  According to Elijah, that’s not the story. He insists, the real story is not that he lost nearly 300 pounds BUT…that he lost that much weight and has KEPT IT OFF for over 35 years.  You’ll get to meet him soon in our chats…about CATS.  We’re sure to end up having some interesting conversations about our four-legged family members, the ones that PURR and maybe even the ones that BARK, too!  Some of you may be happy enough to have both as members of your own family.

Interestingly, Elijah, Rita, Linda, and Connie have all known each other for many years. We’re thrilled this family of friends has come together to make our experience here at Just For Cats and The New Cattitude Club on ritareimers.com an exciting one!

Sounds like, well…the PURR-fect combination!

Brian Hall with his cat Latte

Just For Cats Pet Sitting
Human Resources and Operations Director

Just For Cats Pet Sitting COO Brian HallBrian grew up in the country, working on neighboring farms with cows and sheep. He had rabbits and raised a pig for 4H club. They had dogs in the house as he was growing up, and when he moved out, he adopted a ferret and an iguana. Although they had a few barn cats on the farm, they never had kitties in the house.

Years later, he had children who were begging for a kitty. When one of his daughters volunteered at FFRC, a kitty rescue, it wasn’t long before she wore him down and Subra came home. Subra needed a friend and was joined by Baaka and then Latte was rescued. One day, Brian asked why their three kitties were all females and decided they needed a male, and Brian went to the rescue to find a male to join the clan, which is how Warren joined the family! Today they have six kitties and one dog, and Brian is definitely a “kitty guy”. You can often find him with a kitty in his lap as he has learned the special joy that kitties bring to your life!

Brian is bringing over 20 years of management skills and 12 years in the banking industry to Just For Cats. He is combing his financial skills, his management skills and love for kitties, to help Just for Cats continue to run smoothly and happily to benefit our amazing clients and our awesome kitty care specialists!

Linda Hall with her kitties, Latte and Subra

Just For Cats Pet Sitting
Client Services and Executive Director

Cat Sitting Client Services LindaLinda loves all animals but grew up with dogs as her mother is allergic to cats. Her Dad, who never had a kitty, thought he “didn’t like cats”. When Linda was a little girl she tried to sneak a kitten in, believing she could hide it in her closet but her Mom found it and she had to return it. (Note: Her parents have a kitty now which her father adores and allergy pills allow her Mom to snuggle happily!)

Linda and her husband Brian live in Ohio and have five children. In 2010, Linda’s daughter wanted to volunteer at a cat rescue and because she was too young to do it alone, Linda accompanied her. They fell in love with a kitty, of course and Brian finally gave in and said they would adopt Subra (in the picture with Linda). A few weeks later, it was decided they would adopt Bakka, to keep Subra company. After hearing about an older cat who had to be returned to the rescue, Latte was adopted (also in the picture), and because they couldn’t have an odd number, they rescued Warren next. None of them seems to remember what prompted Gallway’s rescue, but their son had only one request for his birthday, to rescue Drake, who was his 10th birthday present, bringing them to a total of six cats! (Sadly, after a year and a half, they tragically lost Drake, but he left an impression in their lives that will never be forgotten!)

Linda is excited to be working as Client and Membership Services Director here! She will be working with emails, phone calls and with the website. She will have the honor of working with all of the people who, like her, love kitties! She will get to help them get their pet sits set up and talk to them about their kitty needs. She will be a part of watching the website grow and make lots of friends with other kitty lovers, which she is very excited about!

Before coming to work here, Linda worked for 17 years for Richard Simmons, which is how she met Rita. Linda worked as Richard’s customer service manager on his website, working with the people who visited, putting up content and participating in chats. Health and working with people was a passion and she enjoyed the sense of family that was built by a community of people with a common interest. That is exactly what drew her here! She is excited to join with others who love kitties to build a community of friends and family of feline fanatics; to share our ideas, our thoughts, and just our love of those crazy cats who have taken over our hearts!

Rita Reimers with her kitty, BooBoo

Just For Cats Pet Sitting
Founding President and Owner

Just For Cats Pet Sitting CEO and Cat Sitter Rita ReimersRita has always been drawn to animals, cats in particular. And they have always been drawn to her. She possesses a unique ability to communicate with and understand the tender nature of cats. Rita has had a special bond with cats since she was a child, and she shares her home with cats of all ages and temperaments.

Although she started providing cat sitting services professionally in 1998 when she lived in the Carolinas, it wasn’t until Rita relocated to the Los Angeles area that she was able to dedicate herself full time to cat care. Her company, initially named The Kat Lady, quickly began to flourish. It wasn’t long before Rita traded in her power suits and high heels for jeans and sneakers, her corporate office (and 6-figure corporate job) for a home office complete with a cat bed next to her computer and a few feline helpers, and her customer ordered deep blue BMW convertible for a pretty blue Toyota Camry Hybrid. (The Hybrid has now been retired for her dream car – a black Mercedes CLA 250. Yes, hard work pays off!)

Rita has been interviewed for and quoted in Cat Fancy, as well as in the CATS USA ANNUAL, and KITTENS USA. She has also been a contributor to websites such as Pet360, Catster.com, Vocativ, Mental Floss, and PetSittingOlogy, to name a few. Rita has also been seen on Inside Edition, as their Cat Behaviorist for news stories such as Man Held Captive By Nasty Cat.

Read Rita's Column 'A New Cattitude' in Cat Fancy aka CasterRita Reimers is author of a cat behavior column called “A New Cattitude,” which is featured in every issue of Cat Fancy, now known as Catster Magazine.

In addition, Rita is also contributing Cat Behaviorist for Petcha.com, appearing in Cat Behavior Videos, as well as authoring many articles about cat care. Her cat expertise comes from many years of experience with cats as an owner, rescue volunteer, and cat behaviorist. Rita is a supporting member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), and is a Professional Member of the Cat Writers Association.

Rita has also been involved with various animal rescue organizations, such as Save-a-Life Cat Rescue, Found Animals, Kitten Rescue, The Stray Cat Alliance, and Actors and Others for Animals. Rita is currently a dedicated volunteer and is on the Board of Directors for The Humane Society of Lancaster SC, of which her mother, Mary Reimers, is founding president. She is also a big fan of Jackson Galaxy, whose wonderful staff often refer cases to her at RitaReimers.com that don’t make it onto his My Cat From Hell show. Before Jackson was well known, Rita and Jackson met when they took the same class at Slimmons with Rita’s fitness instructor and friend, Richard Simmons.

After living in Beverly Hills for 10 years, Rita returned to Charlotte to be near her family and friends. Having lived in the area for much of her adult life before moving to California, Rita has deep routes in the Charlotte community and she is happy to be living close her friends and family. Her parents and aunt also live in the area, making their home in nearby Lancaster, SC.

In addition to running Just For Cats Pet Sitting and The Cat Analyst, Rita and her staff are working hard to make her long-held dream of starting The Carolina Senior Cat Haven and Sanctuary a reality. More details to follow as they become available!
