Kat was great with my anxious pup. She was responsive and spent the whole day at my apartment. Was flexible and stayed later than originally agreed. I would recommend!

Kat has been watching our 2 cats for a number of visits now. She provides nice daily recaps and pictures of them, while trying to engage them every visit even tho they’re not always having it. Would recommend.

Little Nico the cat and I love Kat. She cares for him so well when I travel. She really enjoys animals and her reports and pictures are so reassuring when I'm away from my little buddy.

Please note that I use a bicycle for transportation. Due to this, some neighborhoods are unsafe or too far for me to access. I apologize for the inconvenience but I will have to turn down locations that are inaccessible for me. Please keep that in mind. I will give preference to these neighborhoods: North Oakland, Hill District, Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, Garfield, Friendship, Highland Park, Shadyside and Point Breeze.

What Kat would like to know about your dog

Knowing their specific cues for walks and playtime are good, as well as any behavioral quirks or specifics from dog parents. I never let dogs walk on the car sides of streets, just in case.
I welcome all breeds but have a soft spot for medium to very large dogs. I'm used to controlling a 175 lb. German Shepherd and completely fell in love with my friend's St. Bernard.

When Kat watches your pet

I like a good 20-30 minute walk and prefer more quiet streets or trails. Parks are perfect for smells and other friendly dogs. Fetch is my favorite game but I'm also happy to snuggle with dogs. Cats that like to play are a joy, as my old ladies don't play too much anymore.

I could be available to North Shore pets mid-day occasionally, as I work in the area. Send me a message to find out if we can make it work.
