A native of "Mordor" (AKA Texas), Coco first moved to Seattle in the early 2000's. A nerd at heart, she loves all things sci-fi including Star Trek (Original Series & TNG), Star Wars, Firefly, and X-Files. A lifelong animal lover, she became obsessed with cats after adopting her first cat, "Kitty", from a San Diego animal shelter. Coco's hobbies include playing clarinet and percussion, tennis, golfing, reading comics, dragon boating, and cooking.
Heidi is from Seattle and has been a lifelong cat enthusiast. She has lived with and cared for cats ever since her early childhood. Her hobbies include watching films, horticulture, going to live music shows, reading, and visiting modern art museums/galleries. She excels at Jeopardy, cooking anything with veggies, winning trivia matches, and naming obscure actors/actresses.
Meghan is our fabulous remote admin assistant. She is a former Cat Ladies Cat Sitting sitter who moved from Seattle back to her home state of California.
Eric is from Seattle and 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 spent 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 was 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.
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 nearly two decades 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.
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.
Calum has lived in Seattle for the last several 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..
Corbin is from Olympia, but has lived in Seattle for many years. Cats and dogs have always been part of his family, and he and his husband now care for two local rescues. When at home, Corbin entertains his cats with yarn while knitting and spinning, and provides lots of lazy mornings as they help to study from home.
David was a feral kitty rescue adopted during pandemic. David is Manx breed so he has a stubby little tail that wags when he's happy. He's athletic, curious, and very loving towards humans, cats, and other domestic animals. He really loves chasing after the elusive red dot, making biscuits, and playing with Da Bird wand toys. David is named after the character on the Canadian TV series, "Schitts Creek."
Mimi was adopted along with her littermate Lily in the early 2000s. She loved food, staring at the Olympic mountains at sunset, food, taking long naps with her adoptive mom...and did we mention food? She REALLY loved food. Mimi was named after the Jane Siberry song, "Mimi on the Beach."
Lily, like her sister and her adoptive mom, was born in Seattle. She loved squirrel watching, greeting guests at the front door, and curling up in front of the heater. Lily was the more active of the two cat sisters and loved to run around the house on adventures. Lily was named after the song, "Lily" by Kate Bush.
