HOW NO PLACE LIKE HOME GOT STARTED
This is Duke. Duke is the reason why No Place Like Home Cat Sitting Inc. got started.
Five years ago, Duke (The founder's cat) was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. Diabetes mellitus is a failure of the pancreas to regulate blood sugar. This disease is quite commonly found in cats 8 years of age or older, especially neutered senior male cats.
Not only did Diabetes change Duke's life, it also changed his owner's life ( Carolynn ). With Duke dependent on two insulin injections per day every twelve hours, her ability for extended travel or being away from home for more than twelve hours became impossible. In addition, she found it very difficult if not rare to find an experienced, trustworthy and professional pet sitter who could administer Duke's insulin injections. In fact, she discovered that there were few if any, pet sitters qualified or willing to provide the medication that her pet required.
While she did not realize it at the time, she was in fact beginning to establish some of the standards for a truly professional in-home cat sitting service No Place Like Home Cat Sitting Inc.
