Before starting Lucky to be at Home Pet Care, LLC, Katherine Murphy (commonly known by her friends as “Murphy”), was a Legal Assistant for over 26 years; however, she wanted to do something different with her life. Because of her years in the legal community, she is dependable, trustworthy, loyal and confidential. Like most people in the animal profession, Murphy has always loved animals and has been a pet owner all her life. Her pets have always been members of the family. She has provided pet care for her friends & family for years before starting this new venture in 2010. She now offers that same love, care and devotion to you and your family of pets. Lucky to be at Home Pet Care, LLC is not just her business, but her life-long passion.
In addition to dogs, cats & birds, Murphy has also cared for: Chickens, Alpacas, Shetland pony, turtles, hamsters, gerbils, bearded dragons, potbellied pig and Dwarf Nigerian milk goat (which she milked twice a day!) Murphy is currently owned by: Haunzel aka Beads (8 yr old German Shorthaired Pointer) and an aquarium of fish. She most tragically lost her beloved, best friend Sasha (ACD/Border mix) (2008 – 2020), and her other babies gone to the , but of course, NEVER forgotten are: Mishka “The Mascot” (Border/Aussie) (1995 – 2012), Kazera (DSH) (1984 – 2002), Zina a/k/a The Red Rocket (2000 – 2016) (who competed in the Buda Wiener Dog Races for 6 years) and her talking, 20+ yr. old cockatiel, Shorty (2011). Murphy understands, first-hand, the needs of pet owners when going out of town.
It’s hard with one or two animals, but especially challenging when you have a variety of pets. Like most pet owners, Murphy loves and cares for her fur-babies as she would for human children. Murphy completely understands the needs of geriatric pets as well. Review what some owners are saying on the Testimonials page. To further expand her knowledge of dogs, Murphy completed and passed the Internship/Tutor program at The Canine Center for Training & Behavior in Austin and is a Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS). She continues to enhance her knowledge, experience, and education of animals of all kinds.
