Please welcome Kate to the Pup Culture team! She will be doing overnight pet sitting in clients’ homes. She is more than ready to snuggle up with your pets! You can read more about her in her own words:
Hello! My name is Kate Rickert. I live in Uptown, Minneapolis with my dog-like cat Lena (4 years old). I attended the College of Saint Benedict, majoring in Spanish, and currently work as a cat hair-covered banker during my non-Pup Culture hours. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing trivia, spending time at my family’s cabin, and searching for funny animal videos on Youtube. I also volunteer with Safe Hands Animal Rescue. I, too, grew up in a house filled with animals. My current apartment situation doesn’t allow for dogs, so I love having the opportunity to spend time with pups while their parents are away at work or on vacation. My mom always says you can always tell if someone is a good person if they’re an animal lover; I love working for Pup Culture because it allows me to find the good animals and people. I know I worry about Lena when I’m away from home, so I take the role of pet sitting very seriously and strive to provide the love and care for the animals that any pet parent would.
