Meet The Human

Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to worry about your pets left behind while you’re out of town? That worry is one thing Cathie Raub wants to take out of your trip plans. Home But Not Alone Pet Care also steps in for mid-day dog walks while you’re working, if you suddenly find you will not make it home on time, or any other scenario.

Cathie opened Home But Not Alone Pet Care in 2005, as an alternative to kennels and daycare. She has cared for hundreds of pets of all kinds – dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, guinea pigs, fish, alpacas, horses, goats, chickens, ducks, turtles, an eel, a pot-bellied pig and an iguana.

Cathie loves animals so much, they are her only passion. No other work ever quite suited her. She became a vegetarian back in 1985 because she could no longer bear to eat animals.

An obvious requirement for any pet sitter is to love animals, but in Cathie’s case, the animals love her back. She is naturally flexible, so that makes it easy for her to handle all the client requests and last-minute bookings.

“This is how I make my living – it is not a part-time job, so I am totally committed to the care of your pets and I am (almost) always available for service.”

Cathie shares her home with Eloise, a 16-year old Tuxedo a client had a to relinquish; and Jack, a 13-year old red and white Tabby she rescued from the street at 1-year-old after his first home put him out and he began running with a feral pack.

“I will care for your pets with all the love and personal attention I give to my Eloise and Jack.”
