My Story

Cat Care Services:

I’m Feline Aficionada Tonia Fleming. I love all of God’s creatures – but I have a special gift for taking care of cats! I offer cat sitting and boarding for Healthy, Senior and Special Needs felines. I also trim cat’s nails for clients during visits. I have a degree in Animal Care from Becker College and I’ve been caring for people’s cats and pets since 1997. I’m celebrating my 20th year anniversary this year!

My mission is provide comfort and care for the vacationing cat – so they won’t miss you when you’re gone and to share my passion and insight for these incredible felines through Purr View TV Show!

  • Do you believe your cat could have a fun and exciting time even when you’re not home?
  • Would you like your cat to be less stressed, pampered and loved instead of being all alone when you travel?
  • Does your cat need medication and you can’t find anyone in your friends and family network that can give it right, and on time?

Together we can create a vacation that meets your cat’s needs- with either cat sitting or boarding services.

Background
I have a degree in Animal Care and Management from Becker College in Leicester, MA. While at Becker College I worked with dogs, cats and small animals, to learn hands on animal care.
I’ve trained dogs through the NEADS/ Becker partnership program, and received the Animal Care Scholarship of the year in 1995.

I went on to receive a Bachelors of Science in Speech Performance receiving a Degree in Communication Management and Public Relations from Emerson College in Boston. I’ve worked as an Independent Publicist promoting local animal rescue and shelter events, benefit and community events, and have been active in the local area supporting animal causes through Purr View TV Show and Blog- www.PurrView.com. Currently, I do video production and produce Purr View TV Show while also freelancing in pet industry packages. I’ve personally rescued and rehabilitated dogs, cats, and a Goffin Cockatoo.

Memberships
I’m also a professional member of the Cat Writers Association, Massachusetts Animal Coalition and Best Friends Animal Society.

The Kitty’s Corner History
(1997-2004) It all started in Whitman, Massachusetts, when I opened the The Kitty’s Corner, Cat Boarding, Grooming and Supplies, in January 1997 at 715 Bedford Street rte 18 in Whitman, MA. We offered boarding services for cats with a cat playroom, that had a giant cat tree, lots of scratching areas, a rocking chair with quilts for cats to sleep, rest, plat and watch birds out the window. In addition we offered cat grooming services from nail trims, brushing, shampoo and conditioners. We also carried cat supplies, food, toys and grooming supplies.

(2004-2007) The building was sold in 2004 and I began offering cat sitting services. By this time I was learning a lot about special needs care. I had 8 cats at the time and was providing all their medical and home care needs for special needs pets. I had a cat with hyperthyroidism, a cat with kidney failure and gingivitis issues, a dog with arthritis, pancreatitis, hypothyroidism. You name it, I seemed to have it, and to top that I was doing more care than ever for clients cats that were getting older and needing medications too. There’s nothing more special than caring for a cat that needs specialized care to keep them comfortable at the end of their lives. These cats are basically healthy, but need care to keep them regulated, happy and comforted.

(2007-2014) In 2007 I bought a home in Whitman, where they allow cat boarding and I was able to continue to offer cat sitting services and add on cat boarding in my home on a small scale in my living room. It was very nice to be able to have cats stay with me, come out of their condos and watch tv with me, while also being able to have their own condo available to them. My house in Whitman, was like a cottage with a bright sunny living room, and my bedroom was right on the other side of the door. I took a break from boarding at the end of 2014 to focus on my wedding in October, a move to Kingston, and time to fix up my home for sale.

(2015) I’m so excited to announce that the town of Kingston as approved my special permit for my business in our new home in Kingston. I continue to offer cat sitting services and now have the ability to care for cats in my cat office in our home.
