About Your Cat Specialist...

Welcome to Your Cat Specialist!  I'm Tawnee and while I love all animals, cats are my absolute favorite of all God's creatures!  I've always had cats in my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. I grew up in the Applewood area of Golden and after having my kids, was fortunate enough to be able to buy the house I grew up in from my Dad, and have been here since 1999! In addition to being a cat-nanny/sitter with 30+ years of cat experience, I am also trained in feline health, nutrition, behavior, and wellness therapies.

I know it can sometimes be difficult to find affordable, reliable in-home cat care, and Boarding can be extremely difficult. Not only is boarding hard on you as the purrent, but it also has the potential to cause stress-related illness in cats, as they are very sensitive creatures. This is why I decided to add in-home cat care to my available services and offer cat purrents better cat care options when they have to be away from home! Cats are not little versions of dogs and most don't like change. Cats are always more comfortable when they're in their own home territory and prefer a routine that is familiar to them.

My goal when caring for your furry feline is to take the boarding stress out of the equation and make your absence as stress-free as possible. Allowing your cat to remain in their own home while you're away makes it so much easier on them, and when you have a reliable cat-loving nanny to make sure your furry is well cared for while you're gone, it makes life much easier for you, too! 

With my 30+ years of cat experience along with my feline health and wellness credentials, I am able to medicate your cat if needed, attend to any special dietary needs, care for special needs cats that may require more supervision (I have 2 special needs cats of my own), and handle almost anything else your cat may need. I also have experience with sub-q fluids and insulin for cats and am open to caring for cats with these requirements as well.

I am available any time of year for cat sitting, including all major holidays. Please keep in mind, however, that during the holiday seasons, I do book in advance, so the more notice you're able to provide, the more likely I will be able to care for your furbaby! I am also available for daily stop-ins if you have a cat that needs to be medicated or cared for while you're at work, so if this is something you're interested in, please let me know and I can give you a price quote. These types of situations are variable depending on your cat's needs which is why I don't have pricing listed. Please inquire and I'd be happy to help out and give you a quote for the services you need.

I look forward to hearing from you and I do hope you'll consider me when it comes to your cat's care, whether you'll be vacationing, or you're in need of routine cat care on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis!  I am also a trained, certified Feline energy, health, wellness, nutrition, and therapy practitioner.
