The Kitty's Corner History (1997-2004) It all started in Whitman, Massachusetts, when I opened the The Kitty's Corner, Cat Boarding, Grooming and Supplies, in January 1997 at 715 Bedford Street rte 18 in Whitman, MA. We offered boarding services for cats with a cat playroom, that had a giant cat tree, lots of scratching areas, a rocking chair with quilts for cats to sleep, rest, plat and watch birds out the window. In addition we offered cat grooming services from nail trims, brushing, shampoo and conditioners. We also carried cat supplies, food, toys and grooming supplies.
(2004-2007) The building was sold in 2004 and I began offering cat sitting services. By this time I was learning a lot about special needs care. I had 8 cats at the time and was providing all their medical and home care needs for special needs pets. I had a cat with hyperthyroidism, a cat with kidney failure and gingivitis issues, a dog with arthritis, pancreatitis, hypothyroidism. You name it, I seemed to have it, and to top that I was doing more care than ever for clients cats that were getting older and needing medications too. There's nothing more special than caring for a cat that needs specialized care to keep them comfortable at the end of their lives. These cats are basically healthy, but need care to keep them regulated, happy and comforted.
(2007-2014) In 2007 I bought a home in Whitman, where they allow cat boarding and I was able to continue to offer cat sitting services and add on cat boarding in my home on a small scale in my living room. It was very nice to be able to have cats stay with me, come out of their condos and watch tv with me, while also being able to have their own condo available to them. My house in Whitman, was like a cottage with a bright sunny living room, and my bedroom was right on the other side of the door. I took a break from boarding at the end of 2014 to focus on my wedding in October, a move to Kingston, and time to fix up my home for sale.
(2015) I'm so excited to announce that the town of Kingston as approved my special permit for my business in our new home in Kingston. I continue to offer cat sitting services and now have the ability to care for cats in my cat office in our home.
