Hello, my name is Kristy and I want to be your next cat sitter. I love all animals, especially cats! I have over 20 years of experience caring for all kinds of pets. Ever since I was little I knew that I wanted to work with both wild and domestic animals. I have a background in wildlife science and conservation biology. I have worked for the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, the U.S. Forest Service, Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, and the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley. I am currently working my way to becoming a Veterinary Technician.
I share my home with three cats (ages 1, 7, & 12 years), a box turtle, aquarium fish, and a tarantula. My favorite part of the day is spending time with each of my pets and giving them the attention and care they need. I am a huge fan of providing animals with enrichments. (Defined as the process of providing captive animals with some form of stimulation in order to encourage natural behaviors, which helps to improve or maintain their physical and mental health.) As your cat sitter, I will make sure your fur baby is getting all of the attention and love it needs while you are away. I am also able to confidently take care of any additional pets (i.e. lizards, birds, fish, rabbits) that you may have. I am looking forward to meeting you and your cat(s) soon.
