Q: Why should I trust you with my crazy kitties?

A: I will take outstanding care of your cat(s) be they sweet, loving, gentle, and affectionate (in other words, super easy) or cat$h!t crazy (in other words, a holy terror). Every cat is (p)aw-inspiring in their own majestic way. I will treat your kitties with love and respect regardless of how they treat me. I'll do everything I can to keep your mind at peace while you are away, because that is what I'd want for my besties!

The first two tabbies (top left) are my Eunice ("Yoonie") and Zoticus ("Zot.")

Yoonie: One lucky and very rainy Sunday evening, I heard a persistent "meowwww" outside my apartment. This tiny tabby was very adamant that she come inside my apartment and stay there. That was over a year ago, rather, some worms, a fake pregnancy, an "I swallowed a penny...Siiiike!...and now you owe urgent care $400 bucks!" incident, two heat cycles, mannnnny "love bites," sneak attacks, Zoom bombs while I'm teaching, about $1,500.00 in vet bills and supplies, and (finally PRAISE JESUS!) a spay later! Yoonie is my inspiration and my little drill sergeant. She runs a tight ship, lemme tell ya! I think I just mixed up my military metaphors but you get what I mean.

Zot: October 7th, 2021 I adopted a puppy-in-a-kitten's-body from the Wake County SPCA. As soon as I entered his room, he leaped from his cat tree, ran over, and started climbing all over me. How could I say no? (Yoonie: "That's easy. 'No.'") I'm gradually making intros and I hope that one day soon we will be one happy family!

Q. Why do you love cats?

A. A lot of people say things like "I'm more of a dog person..." and even though it drives me crazy, I get it. Dogs have been domesticated by humans and bred to basically worship the ground we walk on, whereas some time around 4400 B.C. near'bouts the Fertile Crescent, some cat pounced on an entrepreneurial opportunity and struck a deal with us humans: "You give me shelter, maybe a little food and keep the rats coming, and I'll take care of "em for ya!" Our relationship with cats has evolved. However, I think that original pawshake engenders respect! Many cats could survive on their own but choose to grace our presence. Cats are funny, mysterious, inspiring, beautiful, quirky little individuals that make our hearts giggle with delight. I respect, appreciate, and love every cat equally regardless of personality. When you adopt a cat you never really know what you're going to end up with, do you? In my opinion, that's part of the fun! Cats challenge us to be better people, capable of loving even those whose reciprocation is not so obvious...that and they are far more effective alarm clocks than actual alarm clocks.

Q. Experience?

A. Check out all of those 5 star reviews! I have 17 repeat clients and I would love to have more!

I have always loved animals on a deeply spiritual level. I've shared my life with dogs since I was a child and cats since my 20s and I've learned so much from them! My passion for cats leads me to learn everything I possibly can about them. I'm always studying up, including working towards my National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) certification.

Q. What's your day job?

A. I actually have two! I am a college professor in the music department at NC State University, where I teach courses and conduct research in arts entrepreneurship. I also work at Meowtel HQ as a Sitter Onboarding Specialist, preparing new sitters for their first reservations!

I promise you, I will take outstanding care of your cats regardless of how much affection they do/ do not show towards me. I will care for your cats like my own family!

COVID-19: I am fully vaccinated and committed to doing my part to keep you and your cat(s) safe! I will wear a mask while in your home and use hand sanitizer/ wash hands before caring for your cat(s) (playing, feeding, meds, etc.) I also keep vinyl exam gloves with me and I am happy to wear them in your home upon request.
