Irish Beth Maddock ~ Certified Feline Specialist / Station Master  

Irish has been in business serving Calgary cat owner’s since May of 2008, however, she has been in the business of caring for cats her entire life. She has an innate sense of seeing things from the perspective of a cat, and hence can read each kitty’s personality and determine their needs which can be respected. Loving and giving to those who cannot speak for themselves, particularly animals, is ingrained in Irish’s nature. She also has a Gerontology background and has a special heart to serve our seniors. In particular, Irish wants to do what she can to help our elderly keep their cat’s residing with them for as long as possible. Ask Irish about special cat care discounts offered to seniors and person’s with disabilities.                   

Though Irish has now semi-retired from full time professional cat sitting after 13+ years, she is still serving a limited number of clients within her outer NW neighbourhood.  When Irish is not caring for her brood of cats, she enjoys writing on the side with her company, Write MEOW! Ink. Irish is a 9 time award winning children’s author of “The Great Carp Escape” ~ An inspirational fish “tail” based on a true story. Read Irish’s most recent story publications in Chicken Soup for the Soul’s “Life Lesson’s from the Cat” (May 2019) and Chicken Soup for the Soul’s “The Magic of Dogs” (July 2020).

Tracey V. ~ Cat Nanny / Cat Care Associate

We are so fortunate to have the lovely Tracey on our cat nanny team.  She is benevolent and tremendously caring.  It is as if her heart and soul was created for the purpose of loving all the furry creatures we call family.  She is compassionate, reliable, outgoing and goes above and beyond to help her clients in the care of not only their cats, but dogs or bunnies etc. as well!  Tracey has run her own pet sitting company over the last 15 years, and though her primary focus has been on dog walking, caring for cats is right up her alley.  (Tracey’s three kitties also truly won the kitty lottery in her home, especially with their three tiered meow mansion!)  Other than being a pet lover extraordinaire, she is also a long time (and is the longest serving) volunteer for the Calgary Seniors Resource Society with their Pet Assist Program and with visiting seniors with friendly dogs.  Feel free to check out Tracey’s fantastic reviews on her Pet Ventures Facebook page.

Tanis W. ~ Cat Nanny / Cat Care Associate  

(Unavailable for cat care until further notice) Tanis, an avid cat lover extraordinaire, has a tremendously kind spirit and sensitive heart for cats.  She also has experience dealing medically with pets. Tanis not only serves as a careful, dedicated cat nanny, but she has been a long term client of the Cat Nanny Calgary herself! Though she works as a full time professional in the Calgary Health Region, she takes time out of her busy schedule to assist any of her special cat care clients in her immediate inner SW area of Calgary.  Her dear, handsome kitty named Marvin doesn’t mind sharing Tanis just a little!

Natasha U. ~ Cat Nanny / Cat Care Associate

Ever want to meet a beautiful soul with a big heart on their sleeve? Natasha is such a one.  Empathetic to the core, Natasha is a qualified, professional caregiver to our senior citizens and has recently been awarded a certificate with honours as a newly qualified Addictions and Community Services Worker.  Yet Natasha’s heartfelt love for her fellow man is easily transferred to all creatures great and small. She too has a pack of pets of her own, so being a cat nanny outside the hours of her current profession is as natural as Natasha is herself.  If you require cat care in the northwest area of Calgary, Natasha will do her best to accommodate you.

Eden M. ~ Cat Nanny Jr.  

Since she was born, Eden has grown up around many cats and foster cats.  Felines are attracted to her joyful presence instinctively and she in turn has developed a very special heart for kitties. Learning the ropes bit by bit, Eden often accompanies her mama, Irish to help with cat care at client’s homes as a Cat Nanny Jr.  Cat huggles, cuddles and snuggles (not to mention play time) are her specialty!
