Karla Caddell, Founder, Stayin’ Home Pet Care

I’ve been a lover of animals since early childhood and a resident of Austin for over 25 years. I live in the Shady Hollow suburb of Austin with my son, Jax, and our pup, Zuzu. When I have spare time, I enjoy watching college basketball and movies, reading, exploring new restaurants with Jax and my friends, and most especially, spending time with my family. My top 5 favorite music albums are REM: Life’s Rich Pageant, U2: Joshua Tree, Lenny Kravitz: Mama Said, Madonna: Ray of Light, and Prince: 1999.

Kathryn W. (SE Austin)

I grew up in East Texas and have lived in Austin for over 21 years. In my free time, I love exploring Austin’s parks with my two hypomanic, but adorable Border Collies. A little time alone in nature is good for the soul. Plus, it keeps the snuggle-beasts from spontaneously combusting like a Spinal Tap drummer. My top 5 favorite music albums are Steely Dan: Can’t Buy a Thrill, Robert Cray: Strong Persuader, Ann Peebles: Can’t Stand the Rain, Willie Nelson: Red Headed Stranger, and Sarah McLachlan: Fumbling Towards Ecstasy.

Angie S. (Georgetown)

I grew up in Houston and I’ve been a resident of Georgetown for 1 year. I’m a busy mom of 3, but when I can make time, I absolutely love to travel. I recently visited Europe and it awakened a part of my soul I hadn’t realized was sleeping! I love the beauty of nature and historical buildings. If I could spend the day lost on a hike or discovering a town I would be my happiest self! My top 5 favorite music albums are The Greatest Showman soundtrack, Fleet wood Mac: Rumors, Taylor Swift: Red, The Beatles: Abbey Road, and Hall and Oats: The Best Of.

Felicia M. (Round Rock, Pflugerville)

I would definitely categorize myself as a slightly-obsessed dog parent and enjoy spoiling my pups as much as possible! While I’m a Texas native, my husband and I didn’t move to Austin until 2014 with our two dogs, Emilie and Dante, in tow. And last year, we also added a feisty, old chihuahua, Brownie, to our family pack. When I’m not treating my dogs as the royalty they truly are, I enjoy reading, writing, thrift shopping, and binge-watching the latest Netflix show. Some of my favorite movies are Shawshank Redemption, Dracula Dead and Loving It, Airplane, Django, and Schindler’s List.

Ferryn G. (Austin)

I’m a lover of gardening and DIY projects! I’ve built and/or installed almost all of the furniture in my home, including my pride and joy, a multi-tiered plant shelf. Some of my favorite music albums are Back to Black by Amy Winehouse, 19 by Adele, and The Thrill of It by Sam Smith. I’m also a fan of Broadway musicals, especially Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Rita R. (Austin)

The hobby that I most enjoy is studying health and wellness for both people and pets. I read articles and research daily on a wide variety of wellness topics, including group posts that discuss issues to offer information and what actually worked in real-time. My top five favorite movies are Ever After, The Wizard of Oz, A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journey, and Marley & Me.

Heather C. (Austin)

I absolutely love animals, but I’m also a preschool teacher that works with 3 year-olds. Almost the same thing—lovable, quirky, friends that have my heart and keep me laughing. In my spare time, I enjoy long walks outside (usually 5 miles or more). And when strolling through the neighborhood this animal-loving, preschool teacher is generally listening to true crime podcasts. What can I say? Figuring out what makes people tick fascinates me. My favorite movies are Love Actually, Hot Tub Time Machine, Grease, Bohemian Rhapsody, animal Christmas Vacation.
