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. After working for another pet-sitting company, Anne decided to set out on her own in January 2010. It initially began as a side project while she worked full-time as a marketing editor. Very happily, LoveCats quickly became a success and since October 2011, Anne has been kitty sitting full-time.
Adriene Tilton initially 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, taking on cat visits on busy weekends and holidays. In October 2013, Adriene officially joined the LoveCats staff as a part-time sitter. Like many of us, Adriene’s love for kitties goes way back to childhood when at 10 years old, 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 in September 2012 while looking for someone to give the TLC that her orange furball, Stringer Bell, desperately needed during times that Amy and her husband, Lee, traveled. She started working as a kitty helper in October 2013 to help cover busy weekends. And now, Amy has permanently joined the LoveCats team, working as a part-time office manager and sitter. Her cat-loving days go all the way back to when a mysterious 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!
LoveCats continues to use occasional kitty helpers — all of whom are LoveCats clients! When business is busy and their schedules allow, these lovely and caring women help out. Anne, Adriene, Amy and the LoveCats Ladies are covered by the company’s insurance and bonding.
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 the 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.
