As an “unofficial” pet sitter for friends and family for 7 + years, and a life-time pet owner and lover, I was thrilled for the opportunity to turn it into a full-time career! I mean, caring for & playing with cats and dogs all day/night…how awesome is that?! This dream has been several years in the making, and I feel so lucky that what started out as a “wouldn’t it be nice…” daydream, is now my livelihood!

We had several pets in my adolescence, Smokey – a sweet, grey male kitty, Lady – a beautiful white toy poodle and Kacye – a loveable brown toy poodle. After moving to the country in my teens, we always had farm cats and outside dogs (and a few kitties I found being abused that I promptly rescued and bottle fed to health) but I didn’t get the chance to have indoor pets again until after college – I.could.not.wait! I rescued Gracie in May of 2004, and we later adopted Neko in December of 2010.

I’ve been an Austin resident for 27 years and even though I wasn’t “officially” born here, I consider myself an “Austinite” and love every aspect of living in here! As kitty lovers and parents, my friends and I may be the ones you overhear in the ’04, sharing kitty stories, wearing funny cat shirts and observing “Caturday” each Saturday. I enjoy trail running (participated in a few 1/2 marathons and my first 30k in 2011), boot camps and yoga – and above all caring for your furry friends as they were my own!
