Wonder Walker

Hmm ... something’s just not right with that kitty ... wonder walker powers activate!




True Identity: Joanne Gilman | Owner
Base of Operations: Brewster’s Buddies Pet Sitting, Baltimore, MD

When the cat sibling of a dog in her care became lethargic and wouldn’t eat, Joanne Gilman transformed into Wonder Walker! She called upon her associate’s degree in veterinary technology and asked if the pet was straining to or couldn’t urinate during trips to the litter box. If so, he needed to go to the emergency clinic right away. The kitty could have a life-threatening obstruction that needed immediate medical care.

The client “took my advice and texted me the next day,” Gilman says. “I was spot on, and her cat received prompt medical treatment, with follow-up surgery to remove bladder stones to prevent another blockage.”

She adds, “The cat greets me very happily at every visit, as if he knows I had something to do with him feeling better.”

Pamela Mitchell is the Editor-in-Chief of PETS+. She works from her home office in Houston, TX, with Ty the Boston Terrier as her assistant.
