About the Owner
My name is Kat Fitzsimmons, the owner of Pampered Petz.
I have a Master’s degree in Business from Drexel University, but after working in the corporate world for many years, I found myself yearning for something more. So, I decided to follow my true passion, working with animals! I have always felt such a strong connection to animals for as long as I can remember.
In 2009, I opened Pampered Petz to make my dream a reality. We pride ourselves on the long-term relationships we form with our clients giving them peace of mind that their furry family members are receiving the best care possible. My husband, Hans, and I live in Gilbertsville with two sons, cats Teddy and Chloe, and our dog, Bella. Hans left his job in 2011 to work for Pampered Petz full-time and has never looked back. He has experience with a variety of animals from cats and dogs to ferrets and loves being able to be outside everyday.

Hello there my name is Megan! I live in Pottstown/Boyertown, PA. I’m a big animal lover as I’ve always had animals growing up from reptiles to cute elderly dogs. Right now, I have an amazing nine year old dog name Bandit. When I’m not pet sitting, I’m usually going to school for my art major. I’m always sculpting or drawing pieces for myself or family and friends. I love being around animals no matter if they are cats, dogs, or fishes. It has always been a dream of mind to work with animals. I love playing with them, going on walks, or just watching them doing their own thing and seeing their personality bloom. I cant wait to meet your adorable animals and getting to hang out with them! Ill make sure to give them the love and attention they care for just like how you do.
Hi my name is Tina. I live in Upper Pottsgrove with my husband, my son, my mother, three cats, one bird, three dogs, and a horse. I enjoy doing confirmation, rally and obedience with my two dobermans. I love all animals and my animals are part of the family and of course spoiled. I feel this is the perfect job for me since I love animals and meeting new people and their pets. Rest assured I will give your fur babies lots of love and attention when your away.
Hello! My name is Val. I am a proud momma of a Havenese, named Pippi(Named after Ms. Longstocking). I am a former vet tech of 28 years. It all started as a summer job that blossomed into a long and rewarding career. I created so many friendships with both humans and pets. I developed an understanding of the medical side of animals, but also the understanding of their behavior and emotions. I am a huge advocate of rescues for animals. I am a cat gal as well. I had my ‘brat pack’, my three boys, all of whom lived long and healthy lives. I love being part of the Pampered Petz team as it allows me to fill the void left after leaving the veterinary field. I look forward to caring for your furry family members. It is an honor and privilege to care for them!
Hi! My name is Nicole. I live in Spring City, PA with my husband/kids and two fur-babies, Graham and Sallie, who are both rescues. I have had animals my whole life. Before my two pups now, I had Sammy (dog) and Jax (cat), who both lived 17 years before crossing the rainbow bridge. I have also previously fostered many rescue dogs until they found their furever home. I love all animals and after using Pampered Petz myself, I thought what better job than to give comfort to people like me that their pets are in loving hands when they are unable to be home.
Hello! My name is Kim and I live in Phoenixville. Like every staff member of Pampered Petz, I absolutely adore all animals! Throughout my life, my pets weren’t just pets, they were and are the animals that brought me joy, comfort and respect for all living creatures. I love to nurture animals, and they nurture me! I never had the chance to have children, so animals played a big part in my life. Presently, I live with an ornery but well loved cat that I rescued. She (Tilly) was extremely timid and scared of all human contact. Today, she can usually be found on my lap or cuddling with me on the couch. Besides my cat, I have had hamsters, a guinea pig, a rabbit and have raised two wonderful dogs who have sadly passed after a full life of love and adoration. Furthermore, I am passionate about horses and have ridden and cared for any horse I could. I am very excited to meet all of my clients and care for, play with and provide love for your fur babies as if they were my own.
Hi! My name is Ali and I live in East Coventry with my husband and rescue pittie, Zeus. I love all animals and will go out of my way to meet each one I see. I’ve cared for dogs with all sorts of personality quirks and specific needs and keeping your pet happy and comfortable is a top priority! I look forward to giving your pets the love and attention they need while you are away.
