Home away from home

Posted on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 4:17 pm

Growing up, there was always that one house where all the neighborhood kids seemed to gravitate towards. The house of Alison and Tom Kimmitt is like that except it’s more of the fur and four-legged variety. The Heathsville couple run a unique pet-sitting service for dogs and cats called Pet B&B. What makes it special for the animals, is that they are treated very much like the three dogs and nine cats the couple already own.

While there are fenced-in kennels and dog runs, complete with music, heating and air conditioning, there are regulars who get the “family treatment.”

The cats and dogs that “pass the interview process” as Tom refers to it, and get along with the Kimmitt’s family pack, get to spend time in the Kimmitt’s home, sometimes lounging on furniture or beds, which is much less stressful when they are away from their owners and disrupted from their routine.
