A few of our paw pals
Amanda's Kitty Pals has been serving pets (and their owners!) Since 2018 and Amanda Yourse has worked in the pet sitting business since 2002. She was intrigued by all the cats she has met over the years. More and more we are convinced that they deserve to be cared for by someone who will focus exclusively on their needs. Amanda said, “ Although I was a general pet sitter for many years and wouldn’t change that, I definitely feel like a change in how the cats in my area are cared for when they are home without their family is needed. Your cats don’t need someone to just pop in on them and make sure their food/water/litter is okay...they need someone to do those things but also play with or give attention to them for a little while. Someone to focus on their social and mental well-being as well as the physical needs. Cats are independent, that is true. That does not mean that they don’t need to be bothered with, though! Even a cat who ‘never comes out and will hide the whole time’ needs the reassurance of a human presence in their home. “
To differentiate ourselves as someone like that, we have changed our title to Feline Care Counselor. We feel like our job is to counsel you on the best way to care for your kitty(ies) while you have to be gone from them. We are still doing in-home cat sitting, just more focused on the mental needs of the cats in our care. Amanda and her helpers all participate in continued education so that we are always up-to-date on all the latest and greatest information for you and your fur-family. Give us a try, you will be glad you called!
Although Amanda does the majority of the jobs herself, occasionally she needs to take time off. When she does, she makes sure anyone who helps us in your home is as devoted and loving as she is. Providing love and companionship to your pets so you can breath easy is our goal!
We are bonded, insured, and pet first aid certified and Amanda is a Cat Behaviorist :)
