Hi, I'm Jess! I am the owner and founder of TPawz. Thoughtful Paws Pet Care was born out of a love of caring for cats and dogs. After taking care of my friends' pets and realizing that pet care was was very important to me, I opened Thoughtful Paws in the summer of 2012.  Like most pet owners, I have had a passion for animals since childhood. I grew up with dogs and have had cats as pets my entire adult life. I volunteered at shelters and took care of my friends pets until I realized that pet sitting was my calling!  I have 5 cats, Vivienne, Linda, Dominic, Damien and Rogue.  They are a joy in my life and inspire me to make sure others know that their beloved pets are well taken care of when they are not home. My husband and I (a fellow animal lover!) live in Arlington, but I also lived in Somerville for several years. I am so happy to be doing what I love everyday. I have experience administering meds to cats including pills, insulin shots, liquid medications and SubQ fluids.  

Hi, I'm Devin! I've always been a huge animal lover and animal welfare is important to me. My girlfriend and I do feral rescue in our neighborhood and work with the ARL to get them spayed/neutered. Stray rescue and adoption is something I am very passionate about. I have 5 cats of my own, and all were rescues from my neighborhood. I can't imagine my life without cats in it! I have been with TPawz since 2012 and am a full time cat sitter. I have experience administering meds including insulin shots, pills and liquid medications.  I reside in Dorchester. 

Hi! I’m Jenn. I am an avid animal lover and have had pets ranging from guinea pigs and rabbits to cats and dogs. Having had pets my whole life, I understand and appreciate how much they mean to their families and strive to let families feel that their little ones are in a safe and loving environment whilst being taken care of. Having the opportunity to work with beautiful animals makes my day every day and I love my job! I have been with TPawz since 2014. I reside in Somerville and I do boarding in my home for Thoughtful Paws. I love having dogs and cats come and stay with me! 


Hi! I’m Melissa. I am part of the Get Up Crew on Hot 96.9, but my love of cats brought me to Thoughtful Paws part time. I have 2 cats of my own and love meeting new kitty friends. I have been with TPaws since 2018.

Hi! I'm Jason.  I have been caring for bunnies and cats for my friends for a few years, so I was very excited to join TPaws!  I love caring for bunnies especially and have really enjoyed all of the new kitty friends I've made from working with Jess & TPaws. I look forward to meeting your furry family members! I currently live in Cambridge.
