Meow! I am Katherine, a cat sitter in New York, NY

Ciao Cat Owners! My name is Katherine, and welcome to my Kitty Care House! I am here to make sure your precious kitties of all ages and needs receive thoughtful and thorough care during my stay.

To provide my animal experience, I owned my queen of a cat, Tiffany, from 12 weeks old until she passed at 21 years. She had the cutest pink nose and definitely could have been a cat model (lol - pictures attached for proof!). In my community growing up, I started volunteering at the local humane society (i.e., in Toledo, OH) at age 11. This involved cleaning, playing, and nurturing hundreds of cats (and some dogs) of all ages until I went to college in 2014. Post graduation and over the pandemic, I lived in Knoxville, TN, and volunteered at the Young-Williams Animal Center where I fostered 2 special-need adult cats (ages 2 - 7, overlapped for one week). Both cats were diagnosed with FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) and required medication administration and frequent oversight. Both cats were happily adopted in a <3 month time period.

As for myself, I currently work in financial services in FiDi and live by myself in Hell's Kitchen. I do not own any pets as I am currently building my own business which empowers its audience to live authentically through life coaching and storytelling of budding artists, determined entrepreneurs, and perceived ordinary people. Yet, my love for animals (cats, specifically) is strong, and we all need a mental pause to pet our furry friends!

My availability for cat sitting includes all neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn before 8:30am and after 6:00pm during the normal work week. On the weekend, I am available before 8:30am and after 2:00pm. I am happy to visit your home up to 3x max per day and am comfortable with overnight stays should the apartment provide appropriate accommodations.

I very much understand that I am a visitor in your cat's home and am always calm and gentle upon first meeting your furry pet. During my stay I will perform the following:
+ Provide the precise amount of food as prescribed for your cat (including any supplements or other dietary additives)
+ Clean and refill water bowls each visit from the preferred source
+ Scoop and change litter boxes when necessary
+ Dispose of litter bags and food cans in an outside trash bin
+ Administer proper and precise amount of medication as prescribed
+ Clean up any accidents from your cat, such as vomited food or hairballs, litter box aversion, and other messes
+ Send daily visit updates after each visit by your choice of communication, and
+ MOST IMPORTANTLY, socialize with your kitty (e.g., playtime, petting, cuddles, etc.) per their comfort zone

Should you need other minor home-related tasks completed (e.g., watering plants, retrieving mail, etc.), please make that known.

Thank you for reviewing my profile, and kindly reach out with any questions or requests you may have. Looking forward to caring for your kitty!
