Description: Nonsmoker, vaccination and boosters, dependable, extremely neat, conscientious, trust-worthy, strong work ethic, honest and a good communicator. Am a global seasoned traveler who is quick-thinking with the ability to trouble-shoot an unexpected situation that may occur.
I’ve had as pets: a German-pointer, toy poodle, turtles, and seahorses. Other family pets: a long-haired Persian cat and a labradoodle. I’ve lovingly taken care of homes and pets.

Kathy is a five star plus sitter who provided loving, attentive care for our beloved 11 year old Basset Hound, Daisy during their 2 ¾ week time together. We received daily updates and photos of their many adventures including neighborhood walks, wild flower hikes, and exploring parks along the river. We love to travel but being away from Daisy is hard. It was reassuring to know Daisy was not only receiving great care (meds, scheduled treats, mobility assistance, tummy rubs) but she was having fun with a new friend. Kathy was great about asking questions concerning Daisy care and followed our directions to the letter. We live in a community where people know each other and Kathy went out of her way to meet our neighbors. Kathy loves to cook and share her creations. She delivered fresh muffins to our neighbors and left a generous number for us to enjoy (along with frozen meals/leftovers). Kathy is truly one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met. Clearly Daisy care is our top priority but Kathy also took great care of our home and left it neat and clean. We appreciated Kathy’s attention to details, warmth and humor, energy, curiosity and respect for our space. We are already planning when we can have her back!
