A Little About Me
Hi! My name is Kathy Fridley and I am a lifelong animal lover. My love for animals started when I was growing up. We always had cats or kittens, often fostering newborn kittens that had lost their Mom. As I grew up, I added dogs, hermit crabs, and hamsters to my growing animal family. And now, I enjoy all animals including cats, dogs, chickens, birds and virtually any small creature.
I am an advocate for animals and actively volunteer with dog and cat rescues. I jump in to help with fostering or animal transporting as needed. You will often find a foster cat or dog at our place until they can find a forever home. I love meeting and helping new furry friends!
I grew up in the Roanoke area of Virginia and currently live out in Troutville, Virginia with my husband and two daughters. Our furry and feathered creatures include three dogs, five cats, 12 chickens, and two geese.
The Inspiration Behind Fur & Feathers
I started Fur & Feathers Pet Sitting to help fill a need I saw in pet care, especially in more rural areas like Boutetourt and surrounding areas. Taking your pets somewhere away from home to be boarded can sometimes be stressful to them. And let’s admit, it’s stressful for most pet owners too! While on vacation, most people need a few other things done around the house like watering the plants, taking in the mail, and putting out the trashcans. For families with small farms, it can be impossible to find someone to keep the chicken coop clean and collect the eggs.
Fur & Feathers Pet Sitting provides a high-level of in-home care for your pets and small farm care for those outdoor critters. We also provide a variety of custom services such as pet transportation and pet supply pickup.
Give me a call next time you need someone to care for your animals. I’d love to help. ~Kathy
