Having moved, with her husband, to Wake county in 1994, she was looking for a new direction to take. When she discovered she could form a career taking special care of our 4 legged friends, she never looked back.

    She currently has 4 indoor-only kitties. Soloman , often called “Boo”,the 16-year-old orange tabby is the patriarch of the bunch. He keeps his two-year siblings in line while loving them at the same time. Martina, 11, will always find her mommy to relax on. Sparrow, aka Fuzzy Butt, plays fearlessly with her little sister or paper balls. Then there’s the ever elusive Candy Cane.

    Suzanne loves Jesus, her husband, family and friends and of course her cats with her very soul. She enjoys word games, counted cross-stitching, movies, concerts and traveling.
