ELISSAMAXINE (MAX) KARPF

CAT CARE SPECIALIST

I’ve had animals all my life. My current fur-baby family includes a 17-year-old orange tabby named Theo, the King of our home. I am also a Grand-Fur PAWrent to seven cats and two dogs.

I work part-time with a flexible schedule, allowing me to provide kitty care services when you need them most. I volunteer at our local animal shelter in the cat adoption room, giving me experience with all kinds of cat personalities. I’ve lived with and cared for cats of various temperaments and have always formed strong connections with them.

I understand how stressful it can be to leave a pet behind. I believe our fur babies are our children, and my goal is to ensure they are safe, happy, and well cared for while you’re away. I’ll keep you updated on your pet’s daily status and send lots of pictures for your peace of mind.

With 25+ years of experience with cats of all breeds, ages, and needs, I promise to give your fur baby a PAWsitive experience and love them as my own.

I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!

CAT CARE SPECIALIST

Hi, my name is Kathy and I am extremely excited to be a member of Meow! A Cat Sitting Company. Cats have always been a huge part of my life. Currently I share my life with two senior cats and two younger siblings that I fostered and then adopted. I still foster kittens and even though it’s always difficult to part with them, I realize I am just one small step to their wonderful life with a forever family. I was involved with cat rescue for several years and started fostering when I worked at the Humane Society of Pinellas for the last five years. Looking forward to spending time with all your wonderful cats and kittens.

KRISTIN CURVELO

CAT CARE SPECIALIST

My name is Kristin Curvelo and I have lived in the North Pinellas area for over 30 years. My husband and I have 2 children and a grandson. We love to travel, enjoy a good meal and just hang out watching a funny movie. We are fortunate enough to have most of our family here with us.
During the day, I provide Occupational Therapy services to special needs children. I have had pets all my life. From guinea pigs to 100 pound dogs. My life would not be full without a fur baby in it. The thing I like most about cats is all their different personalities and how relaxing it is to have one next to me just sitting on the sofa.

I know how hard it is to leave my fur babies, but rest assured I will treat them like my own when I visit with yours.
