Kathleen was an amazing sitter for our two cats! Organized, responsive and friendly we were so at ease knowing our pets were under good hands. When we go out of town again we’d LOVE to book Kathleen (if she’s available)! She’s the sweetest and sent us photos and updates every time she stopped in. Thanks for everything!!

Kathleen was extremely accommodating to be able to book additional visits at the last minute. Bailey seem to have a great time with Kathleen. I also appreciated the photos during Bailey’ walks.

Cat owner, dog lover and student

I've taken care of my friends' pets in the past (mostly cats ...

What Kathleen would like to know about your dog

I'd like to learn about your pet's personality before sitting him or her, and I'd like to be familiar with their likes and dislikes too. Additionally, if your pet has any medical conditions or physical limitations, I'd need to know that in advance.

Additional Skills
Senior Dog Experience

I love spending time in Chicago's numerous parks and along the lakefront, and I'd love to take your pet on outings at these locations too!
