Cathy is responsible and reliable and I am so grateful. The energy in the house is calm and kitties are not as stressed as they were with previous sitters.

My dog, Kenya, loved her stay with Cathy. Cathy was very diligent with Kenya’s care. She also alleviated many of my worries and concerns I had. This was the first time I had been apart from my dog ever since she was adopted. I am so glad I chose Cathy. I definitely will be bringing Kenya, again!

Cathy is a godsend!
She went above and beyond to accommodate my high maintenance dogs and my own quirks with pet care.
She was committed to establishing a relationship with my pets while I was gone that would provide them comfort, a dependable routine,

Your pet's comfort is my priority!

As a recently retired public elementary school teacher, I know the importance of building trusting bonds. I have had animals all of my life. I am NOT just limited to caring for dogs and cats. I have 30 years experience with horses, chickens, goats, etc. As a teenager, I worked in an exotic pet store caring for a large variety of reptiles to hand feeding baby birds. . I also know how to maintain fish aquariums ...

What Cathy would like to know about your dog

I want to know everything about each animal that I care for that will make his or her routine stay as stable and comforting as possible. I need precise details on feeding, walking (if applicable), house rules (such as allowed on furniture), etc. I want to know everything that I would be wanting someone to know about my own animals so that they are cared for perfectly. There is great comfort knowing you can go away and your pet or pets are fine.

When Cathy watches your pet

I love to make a connection with your pet, whether it's walking your dog, playing with your cat, or brushing/grooming your horse. I will walk them where ever the owner deems a safe place and correct distance for your animal's needs. I also am experienced with older dogs who don't care much for even short walks. We play more inside then with gentle games. I also sat down in several kennels at the sanctuary and "read" to older dogs or ones that were too timid to socialize outside of their own immediate home environment.
