Meow! I am Kathleen, a cat sitter in Orland Park, IL

Cats have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and still are. I currently have 4 cats, Cosmic (14 years old), Jingle (12 years old), Berri and Gerri (3 years old). I used to foster for a local rescue and that is how I welcomed Berri and Gerri into my home, I was a "Pandemic Foster Failure". I wanted my children to grow up wih cats, like I did and that is how Cosmic came into our lives when he was a kitten from P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park. Cosmic was adopted with his sister Daisy, but unfortunately Daisy was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of one. Daisy passed from complications with epilepsy and Cosmic was lonely for a sister. That is how Jingle became part of our family right before Thanksgiving from P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park.
With having four cats right now, it is more difficult for me to foster, so now for the past 5 years I have volunteered at P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park with my daughter. By working at P.A.W.S. and fostering for many years I am trained to look for anything out of the ordinary with a cat, whether it is a sniffle or they are not eating their food, which must be documented and looked into.

I want to be a cat sitter because I know how hard it is to find someone you trust to take care of your cat. It seems like, where I live, that there is not many options for places to take your cat for short or long periods of time for boarding. It seems that most places only cater to dogs and if they do have a cat area, it is very minimal and very uninviting. It is also very stressful for cats to leave their home because they usually don't leave their homes like dogs do on a daily basis. I luckily have a family member who takes care of my cats when I am away and I know some do not have that person and that is why I would like to cat sit.

I sell real estate and have done so for the past 12 years. The areas I serve would be the southern suburbs of Chicago. I am fully vaccinated and boosted and I do continue to wear my mask when I am out.
