About Katherine
Hi there!

My name is Kat, and I've had animals all of my life. I am from America, and I attended the Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology; I graduated with an Associate's Degree of Applied Animal Sciences (AAS), as well as a Veterinary Technician Certification (though, it has been about 15 years since then!). I no longer practice medicine, but I still have a deep love for animals of all kinds <3

I am willing to host certain pets at my home (puppies, small dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, or G. pigs), but they absolutely must be okay with my two kitties, Tonks and Julian. Feathered friends, hoppers, and little wheekers will be kept in my bird-room, which is off-limit to our cats (or other visiting creatures). We do also have a fenced-in and secure backyard, but no pet will ever be allowed out unsupervised.

Obviously a pet lover, Kat was excellent with my dogs. She was also professional, friendly and informative. I would have no hesitation leaving my dogs with her again and recommend her to anyone.
