Eric is a Seattle native who has lived with and been servant to cats his entire life. He can trace his lineage back to the Viking Katmænd (cat men) of ninth century Scandinavia. The Katmænd disliked battle and instead preferred to befriend and train the wild cats who would forage for scraps at the edge of the village. These cats would become known for their superior hunting skills and kept the villages free of rodents. Eric's current cat companion is a friendly tabby by the name of "Dean." Eric's hobbies and interests include: movies, going outside, running, cooking, video editing, making weird videos, listening to weird music.
Stephanie has spent most of her life in the Seattle area and has been owned by cats since day one. She has spent the last 16+ years working in the veterinary field including: 8 years at a feline only practice, 1+ year at a cat shelter & sanctuary and 4+ years in specialty medicine (ophthalmology, radiology, neurology and surgery). After 16 years of dealing with sick animals and sad cases, Stephanie is ecstatic to transition to a lighter hearted side of the pet care industry. Stephanie is happily owned by two handsome male purr monsters who are always trying to convince her that she doesn't need to do anything besides love on them and have kitty photo shoots. When time permits, Stephanie enjoys spending time with fellow animal lovers, photography, nature, hiking, good coffee and amazing food.
Ash has lived in Seattle for 5 years and has has always felt a special connection with cats since childhood. When they were born their parents adopted a 2 month old grey tabby kitten named Whiskers. Ash and Whiskers bonded early on in life and grew up together for nineteen years! Currently, their housemates are allergic to kitties so cat sitting is the perfect way for Ash to get their feline fix by offering playtime, cuddles or just loving gazes. Ash has an intuitive sense to what cats want and need and appreciates any boundaries a particular cat may have. When Ash isn’t caring for cats, they are tending to plants, spending time outside, listening to music or mixing tracks.
Growing up in the snowiest part of northwestern Pennsylvania, Tanisha never had pets growing up, but always had an affinity to 4-legged fur babies. Once she moved to Arizona as an adult, she adopted her first cat, Smitten, and the connection was immediate. After the first year of being a cat mom, Tanisha adopted a friend for Smitten and named her Sozie. That was 12 years ago and they have been a happy little family ever since. Tanisha has learned over the years how to understand cats as little people, and when her cat whispering skills are on high, she's able to befriend even some of the shyest of cats. When she’s not making friends with cats, Tanisha enjoys crocheting, knitting and all things crafty, doing hair, listening to music and dancing until sunrise.
Calum has lived in Seattle for the last 3 years. Growing up in Appalachia, they fell in love with cats while caring for two generations of snuggly and sassy Bombay cats. They feel very lucky to get to meet and care for so many lovely kitties across the city. When they aren’t busy making new furry friends, Calum enjoys powerlifting, reading, and taking road trips..
May is from all over but has lived in Seattle for several years now. She appreciates the unconventional, the whimsical, and the absurd. Thus it only makes sense that cats have owned her heart for as long as she can recall. Seeing their purry little faces never fails to make her day lighter. When not delighting in these tiny tyrants, May relishes her job as a buyer for a local toy store. She also much enjoys ranting at characters during horror movies, encouraging her houseplants to grow, and escaping into the mountains for adventures.
Mimi was adopted along with her littermate Lily in 2006. She loves food, staring at the Olympic mountains at sunset, food, taking long naps with her adoptive mom...and did we mention food? She REALLY loves food. Mimi was named after the Jane Siberry song, "Mimi on the Beach."
Lily, like her sister and her adoptive mom, is a Seattle native. She loves squirrel watching, greeting guests at the front door, and curling up in front of the heater. Lily is the more active of the two cat sisters and loves to run around the house on adventures. Lily was named after the song, "Lily" by Kate Bush.
