About Me

Hello! I am an early stage academic (recent PHD!) doing pet care on the side. I work in the discipline of religion but also read and write about animal mindedness and communication. I would be happy to talk about animal concepts, mindedness, the evolution of language, etc (isn't Bunny the talking dog the best??) I’ve taught undergrads on the subject to rave reviews. More practically, I have many years of experience caring for pets, both cats and dogs. We have a sweet kitty, seen in the profile pictures. We adopted her as a Covid cat, and are now inseparable from her. I'd show your kitty the same level of care that I show my own! Our kitty also has kidney issues, meaning that we have become experienced in delivering subcutaneous fluids. I'd be happy to work with you in caring for your elderly / unwell pet, including administering medications if needed.I also have experience working with dogs. For four years I lived with Yana, the pitt bull mix you see in the photos. Yana and I have a special relationship, developed over many long walks. I look forward to long walks and to developing a special relationship with your dog, too! Happy to do dog-sitting in the home and also drop-in visitations for walks.I work from home (am on a writing schedule!) so have a lot of flexibility. I live in Adams Morgan and look to keep my commute within a 2 mile radius. My preferred times for engaging with pets are weekday afternoons (no mornings — but let’s talk if we get into a routine). Also feel free to let me know if you need weekend care if you’re seeking to book a longer period of time.I'm super responsive and responsible, so to protect both my time and yours, I ask for a lot of lead time to help ensure that our calendars and expectations line up. I ask for a week in-advance check-in to plan for pet care; and I have a three day cancellation policy.I am very respectful of people's beings (come as you are!), property, and time. I value good communication to make sure we are on the same page regarding your pet's needs. If you want someone to provide loving company for your pet while you are away, I would be an excellent person for the job. I will happily home-sit for you or provide visitations. Let’s be in conversation early, so that we are on the same page regarding your pet's needs.

"Kathy took wonderful care of my dog Yana whenever I went out of town. She loves animals (dogs and cats alike!), is extremely sweet, kind, and gentle with them, and goes out of her way to make sure that they’re comfortable and safe when she’s caring for them. I highly recommend Kathy as a pet-sitter :)" --John P.
