Taking loving care of cats — in the comfort of their own homes — when their parents travel!
Who We Are
LoveCats business owner Anne Taylor has been around furballs since she was 4 years old and still remembers the day her first cat had kittens, kicking off a life-long desire to be near them. To her dismay, her husband Richard is severely allergic to cats — and that became the impetus for caring for other people’s munchkins. Anne initially started LoveCats as a side project in January 2010, while she worked full-time as a marketing editor. Very happily, it quickly became a success and since October 2011, she has been kitty sitting full-time.
Adriene Tilton came to LoveCats as a client for her munchkins Henry (who passed away in January 2013), Obi and Caddy, and then became an occasional kitty helper. In October 2013, Adriene officially joined the LoveCats staff as a part-time sitter. Adriene’s love for kitties goes back to childhood when she fell in love with her neighbor’s cats. They kindly let her care for the felines and that experience, coupled with her own family’s rescue of two kitten brothers, have led to an unending respect for and voracious interest in cats.
Amy Whitford found LoveCats while looking for someone to give TLC to her orange furball, Stringer Bell. She started working as a kitty helper in October 2013, and permanently joined the team in March 2014, working as a part-time office manager and sitter. Her kitty-loving days began as a child, when a cat showed up on the front seat of the family car when someone left the windows down. Cosby joined the family and it has been all cats, all the time ever since!
Will Davies officially joins LoveCats as of July 2014! After many years in the workforce, Will has decided to make a life and career change. He is attending college part-time to earn his degree, while helping us care for kitkats. Will lives in Somerville with his two sister tabbies, Boo and Bombs.
What We Do
LoveCats sitters spend time with your munchkins in your home while you’re traveling. We can visit for various increments of time (see Services page). Our focus is attention and interaction. We are all about cheek rubs, head/neck massages, brushing, and as much play as possible. Of course, we do the expected things too: food, water, litter scooping. Also, we understand human anxiety, so we work hard to put you at ease with updates via text or email.
LoveCats primarily services Cambridge and Somerville.
