About Kathleen

**In the midst of Covid-19, I am comfortable continuing to provide care for your animals while you are away. With proper social distancing, we can schedule a meet & greet, whether that be video call or in person, where we can discuss any and all details pertaining to pet care.**

Welcome to my profile!

Career wise, I am an occasional teacher on the OCDSB. Aside from supply teaching, I volunteer weekly at an elementary school in Kanata.

At home, I have a beautiful long-haired cat named Louie. My husband and I adopted him from the SPCA in 2015. I am most certainly a "crazy cat mom!" Growing up, I never had cats for pets, but instead I had two dogs. I have always considered myself to be a natural animal person; I believe they bring so much joy & love into your life.

I am very kind and gentle when it comes to interacting with all animals. Take my cat Louie for instance, he is very shy and takes some time warming up to new people, so I remind everyone to be patient with him. When meeting a new animal I allow them to greet me first and I will proceed at their pace, as every animal handles meeting new people differently.

Regarding your animal’s health, I am comfortable providing both oral and injected medication if required. I have administered oral medication to my cat many times. I have also recently learned how to administer insulin to diabetic cats. As long as I am provided with full instruction on your pet’s needs, I am confident I can care for your animals while you are away.

  • Feeding,
  • Fresh water,
  • Fresh litter,
  • Spend time with your pet(s),

  • With the exception of one long weekend in August, I am available all summer: mornings, afternoons & evenings.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you,

Kathleen

Kathleen took some great pictures while she was looking after our cats, they were fun to look at. Everyone was healthy and happy when we got home. Even the shy cat warmed up to her! The house was clean and a lovely card was waiting for us to welcome us home. She even kept the cat grass alive so that the cats had their greens. I would definitely use her services again.
