About Us

cropped-animals-cat-crown-cute-hello-kitty-Favim_com-132716_large.jpgIf you’re like most cat lovers, you hate leaving your cat in unfamiliar surroundings when you travel. You can arrange for friends and neighbors to take care of your pet at home, but often, they’re too busy, and you don’t like to impose.

My service provides your cat with the care it needs while you’re away – right in your own home.

I truly love cats and that is what led me to open The Cat Lady in 2011.  As a cat lover and mom of Rocky and Apollo and now Cristiano, I know that cats are happiest in their own environment.  I also know that some cats do not adjust well to being left alone while their owners are away.

I am also a Registered Massage Therapist and owner of a private massage therapy clinic and formerly an Advanced Health and Fitness Specialist.  Cats tell me my Swedish Massage technique is purrrfect.

Your cat will:

  • stay in a secure, familiar environment
  • follow their customary routine and diet
  • avoid exposure to illness from other animals
  • receive loving individual attention

You can leave home with peace of mind knowing that you’ve left your home and cat in my good hands.

How My Service Works

When you call, I will arrange a visit to your home shortly before you leave. This is so I can meet you and your cat, get detailed information about caring for it and pick up a key to your home or apartment.

During this visit, you decide how often you want me to visit each day you’re away and what services you want performed. Fees are based on the number cats, the number of visits per day and medical requirements.

While you’re away, I will:

  • replenish the food and water.
  • exercise and play with your cat.
  • maintain the litter box.
  • administer medication (including insulin), vitamins, and other special care.
  • get medical treatment in case of illness.
  • send reports and updates by email on request.

 And while taking care of your cat, I am happy to water your indoor plants and make your home look “lived-in” by bringing in mail and newspapers and adjusting draperies and lights.

After you return, I will return your key, pick up payment, and make sure you and your cat are satisfied.

Even if you are not leaving home, there may be an instance where I can be of service. Unusual working hours, lengthy illnesses or renovations may make it difficult to properly care for your pet. Please call to discuss how I may help.
