Au Purr

Caroline Rabasa
Staff Sitter

Caroline is a long-time resident of San Francisco, and has been working in the hospitality industry for over 15 years while pursuing career opportunities in varying fields. She has done everything from legal assisting to substitute teaching.  After her beloved cat passed, she explored the idea of fostering but eventually found Au Purr, where she found the perfect opportunity to expense some of her love and passion for animals which had been stifled since losing her own. Caroline comes to us with great enthusiasm and a deep understanding of people's bonds with their cats, and displays it in the care she shows for every little furball she meets.

Kai grew up in Delaware & Pennsylvania where animals first came into her life at the age of 4. Grover was his name (t hank you Sesame Street!) and he was a sweet & graceful German Shepherd.  With a move from the city to the country the lovely tabby cat, Sherry I (there would be a Sherry II later) joined the family.  She continued to welcome many more dogs & cats into the family from childhood to adulthood. For the past 16+ years she has had the pleasure of caring for & getting to know kittie sisters, Nina & Simone. Simone is a sleek grand Dame at 19 years old and the sweet Nina lived to be 16 years old (and is very much missed).
She thinks furry family members add more joy, adventure, and love to your life.
Kai moved to San Francisco 11 years ago and has worked in online retail. When not caring for amazing cats, she is creating photographs & studying winemaking.

Meghan Portillo
Staff Sitter

A Bay Area resident for nearly a decade, Meghan loves animals of all kinds.  Aside from animals, her primary passions are learning, reading, and writing. Her happy places are bookstores and beaches with a view of the Pacific Ocean.

Up until recently, Meghan has almost always lived in a household that has had multiple cats - sometimes as many as 7 or 8, so she has plenty of personal experience caring for cats. She has an AS degree in Veterinary Technology and is able to give medication via various routes; she can also tell when a cat isn't feeling well. When she became her grandmother's caregiver, she took over her household routines and chores. While her grandmother was still able to travel, Meghan took care of her two cats based on her grandmother's meticulous way of doing so.
