More about me...
I am originally from Louisville, but returned here after living in Texas for 24 years. After a fair amount of soul-searching, I decided to follow my passion. I grew up with cats, 60 years experience in all (!). More recently I have volunteered for the Alley Cat Advocates, an amazingly well run Trap/Neuter/Return organization here in Louisville. Some of my tasks there have included trapping, grooming, & handling all types, shapes & sizes of felines. I owe much to what I have learned about cats from working with the ACA and their Big Fixes.
My first dog was a Blue Heeler named Jake. He was a handful of a foundling, and most decidedly not a recommended starter-dog for a cat person. I had never had a dog, so I chose to learn everything there was to know about health, training, communication with, and behavior of, dogs. I started with him, and never stopped. Jake and I even got our Good Canine Certificate.
That was 22 years ago. Since then I have also worked as a volunteer for the Richardson [TX] Humane Society as a handler responsible for the welfare of dogs at adoption events, and have handled a wide variety of dogs since becoming a pet sitter here in Louisville in 2009.
