Meow! I am Barb, a cat sitter in Waxhaw, NC

I have loved cats for as long as I can remember, and I have always had a special affinity with them. I currently live with six cats - Amber, Cleo, Apollo, Lucy, Spots and Luna - along with their black lab friend Finn. I’ve been a professional cat sitter since 2017. My boss loved to refer to me as a “cat whisperer” because of my ability to win over even the shyest cats and make them feel comfortable.

My husband John and I spent most of our lives in Beira, Mozambique in Africa doing linguistic research and Bible translation for one the 40 languages spoken there. I passed on my love for cats to our twins Derek and Hannah, who brought home a steady stream of kittens abandoned on the streets of Beira, rehoming some to missionary families and keeping a few ourselves. Our Mozambican friends were always amazed that I could approach a spitting, wild kitten and within a few minutes, calm it in my arms!

We have been living in Waxhaw for 16 years now and continue to work remotely – we’re currently helping a team in Brazil translate the Bible into their language. I have a very flexible schedule, and am available to kitties living in the Waxhaw/Marvin area, as well as in Lancaster and Fort Mill, SC.

I look forward to meeting your fur babies and making their time away from you as enjoyable as possible!
