Today, she shares her home with many pampered cats, some permanent residents and some fosters. She’s the founder of the Howard County Cat Club, a local no-kill cat rescue, and provides cat behavior consultations by telephone and email.
When she’s not pet sitting, she writes about cat care and behavior for several websites. She’s the publisher of the cat behavior website, How To Live With Cats and writes several blogs about cats.
She started the Howard County Cat Club in 1998 in celebration of Pampered Pets’ 20th anniversary. Since then, the organization has placed hundreds of no-longer-wanted cats in new forever homes and is known and respected throughout the Baltimore/Washington region.
We believe that pet sitters should be knowledgeable about the companion animals in their care. So our pet sitters are cat experts. We know cats need and deserve as much attention from their pet sitters as dogs do. Since we’re primarily cat sitters, we never have to sandwich visits to cats in between dog walks.
For us, pet sitting is more than a job, it’s a labor of love. That’s why we would never entrust just anyone with our clients’ animals or homes. All of the people who work with us were friends or clients before they became pet sitters. We know how well they care for their own animals and homes. And we know they treat our clients with the same care and respect. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
