Meow! I am Kathryn, a cat sitter in San Diego, CA

Hi!
With a name like Kathryn, I was destined to be a cat lover. My friends call me Kat or Kitty, and I am proud to say it’s because I am an unabashed cat person! My love for cats started with my first tuxedo kitten I named Bingo, a gift from my mom for my 5th birthday. Since then, our family has included more cats, dogs, fish, a pony, guinea pigs, and hamsters. We even lived next to a farm, where I learned to care for cows, pigs and chickens! As an adult, I have been a cat mom to eight rescue cats in total, all having been raised in pairs or multiples and fortunate to have lived long, healthy lives!

To me, cats are magical beings. I consider them better than therapy! As a single mom, I adopted my (human) daughter when she was 11; the comfort and acceptance our cats gave to a newly placed foster child was so precious to me, and she is now equally feline-enamored. Now that my daughter is grown up, my empty nest is filled by the huge personalities of my two “old guys” – rescue cats, Jonah and Oliver. I have also been a volunteer with Friends of Cats (where Jonah chose me) and with the San Diego Humane Society; I even head a team for their annual Walk for Animals named Kitty's Litter. :)

I moved to San Diego from the Midwest right after college. After 25+ years in event and hospitality management, I was laid off from the hotel industry at the start of the COVID pandemic. This change led me to refocus my attention towards things that matter most to me, like family time and supporting the animal community. Pets are cherished family members, and it’s a privilege to provide trusted care and love when called upon to help.

* For holidays - or If you need a specific visitation schedule (for administering medication, for instance) - please message me first to confirm my availability at that time.
* I strongly encourage DAILY drop-in visits, and cannot accept visits scheduled less frequently than every other day for your cat's safety and care.
* I currently live in the South Park area and prefer to keep my travel within a 10 mile radius. However, for 45- and 90-minute drop-in visits, I try to be flexible, and if you’re unsure you’re within my radius, please ask! I am fully vaccinated against COVID and always practice safe sanitizing as well as social distancing and mask wearing when in public.

Premium Drop-in attention I provide for your cat(s):
• Daily feedings / treats according to your guidelines
• Scoop / change litter box
• Hairball cleanup
• Administer medications, if needed (eye/ear drops, flea prevention application, pills, oral syringe, insulin injections)
• Engaging playtime for receptive cats (willing to make a fool of myself) or just chilling in respectful silence
• Quality petting / cuddling (if that’s what kitty desires)
• Stimulating conversation (whether they appear interested or not)
• Music for Cats playlist on my portable Bluetooth speaker
• Photos & videos of your cat (as few or as many as you request)
• Regular recaps of visits with any details you request (litter concerns, etc.)

NOTE: I am currently limited in providing overnight care (overnights are based on a 12-hour continuous period.)

As added bonuses, I will:
• Water your plants (I have a green thumb!)
• Pick up your mail
• Bring in your Amazon and other deliveries

And I always clean up after kitty and myself when I am in your home!

Once your reservation is confirmed, we can set up a complimentary Meet & Greet in your home to introduce your kitty(s) and review logistics. I can’t wait to meet more cat friends!
