I was gone for longer than usual when I travel and I felt totally assured of Kathy's care and attention to my critters and my home.

Thank you Kathy!

What Kat would like to know about your dog

I do not have breed preferences, I love them all! I always like to get as much information as I can prior to sitting. There's no such thing as too much info!
