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. She really listened to my concerns and asked for details with regard to both the dogs and the kittens. She posted photos and called with questions. I would definitely ask her back next time I leave. Thank you Kathy!

Kat was very professional and helpful. My dog was well taken care of while I was out of town for a long holiday weekend. Would recommend and would book again!

What a great sitter! Teddy took to Kat immediately!!! I had no worry knowing that Kat was staying in my home with my baby. Kat was very professional from the start. She required vet and vacinnation information, which we were happy to provide. I would recommend her highly and we definitely plan on using her again.

Professional & Friendly Animal Care

My name is Kathy and I have cared for pets my entire life. As a child I walked the neighborhood pets until I had my own. Every opportunity I had I was around animals. As an adult I have managed boarding kennels, worked at a veterinary hospital, and have my own pet sitting company, In Your Absence. I am a recent graduate with a bachelor of science in animal science. I have also almost completed ...

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! I want to make sure you and your pet feel comfortable with me and the care I will provide. A brief medical history is also important prior to sitting.
