About Cat's Meow
My name is Marty Kirkland and I am the snuggles and love behind Cat's Meow Pet Sitting. In 1993 I planned a vacation with my family but could not find anyone trustworthy to take care of the family of pets I was leaving behind. My family lived too far away and I didn't know my neighbors well enough and didn't want to impose on anyone. Boarding was totally out of the question. I felt completely lost. I just wanted to hire someone I could trust to come over daily and make sure my animals were well taken care of. I didn't think such a thing existed.
Then a light bulb went off. After some coaxing, my best friend agreed to stay at my house with the pets. During my vacation I kept thinking about this pet-care-for-hire thing. Ever since I was 6 years old I have wanted to work with animals and I was just too squeamish to be a veterinarian. This would be perfect!
When I returned home I immediately started researching and found that there were, in fact, a few people out there that "pet sit" for a living. One night while reading a pet magazine I read about a book, " Pet Sitting for Profit." I bought it and off I went!
I have experience with dogs, cats, birds, fish, and small critters of all kinds!
