Winifred Sanderson Meowspurr aka Winnie

Watcher of humans, not so covert pen thief and official mascot of @scalestailsandpawspetsitting

Winnie was a stray who was rescued by a friend named Barbara. Unfortunately, Winnie doesn’t love sharing her space or humans with other fur friends and tormented her new fur siblings. After a brief talk, the office team at Scales Tails & Paws decided that Winnie would be purrfect for an office cat. 

Winnie is the official greeter for us and also HHM/Payday, who we share an office space with. She spends much of her day going from person to person, demanding attention and making sure we are on task. When not sleeping, playing or snuggling, you can find Winnie chasing the dogs who dare enter “her” office and growling at the geese outside.

Jandi S


Jandi S. loves all animals, big and small. Growing up on a farm, she rode and showed horses all through school as well as raised Australian Cattle Dogs. Active in 4-H and FFA, she spent her free time farm-sitting for friends and hanging out at the local vet’s office. Even her science fair projects were horse related.

As an adult, her passion for animals and 4-H hasn’t waned. Jandi has been a 4-H advisor for 20+ years. Her 2 teenage boys share her love of animals and 4-H. Currently her family has 3 dogs, 2 cats, fish, numerous outside chickens, goats, and a house chicken named Cadbury. When she isn’t snuggling up with your pet or enjoying walking adventures, she is most likely cheering on her boys at their various sporting events.

Michaela C

Event Coordinator/Office Administrator

As many of our long term clients know, Michaela is Ingrid’s daughter so she comes by her passion for pets, especially cats, naturally! She has been a huge help for many years and is excited to officially be a part of the team.

Michaela has been obsessed with animals since she was old enough to know what they were, in fact, her first word was kitty! She has followed in the family footsteps of helping foster and rescue dogs and cats. She almost always had a litter of kittens or mama cats that we would foster for area groups start out in her room before being introduced to the rest of the household.

In Michaela’s words:

“I am Ingrid’s daughter who has been with the business since the beginning. I grew up in a home where we lived, breathed, bled animals! I’m very much a crazy cat lady (even more than Ingrid!), but have a love for all other animals, especially rats, ferrets, bunnies and other of the like. I have two crazy kitties of my own, they’re both a bit…spoiled. I hope one day when I’m in a bigger home to be able to foster again, mama cats with kittens, shy kitties who take time to bond, kitties who have medical issues who others are wary to adopt. 

Michaela handles events and all that goes into those and also specialize in cat care. She can usually get even the shyest kitties to come out. Michaela officially joined the team in 2014.

Pet Care Professional

Since birth Shiloh has loved ALL animals. Growing up in California, her parents only allowed cats. She did try, unsuccessfully, to convince her parents to let her have a horse in her bedroom.

After she married her husband Chris, she added dogs to her family. It took some convincing, but eventually she was also able to get that horse – although he doesn’t live in her bedroom… yet.

Shiloh moved to Gahanna when she was 10. She now lives in New Albany with her husband (Chris), two beautiful daughters (Eve and Natalie), two dogs (Scooby and Ms. T), two cats (Rico and Winnie), two lizards (Jessie and Loco) and one rescue fish. She boards her horse, Cricket. For the past 17 years, she has been a stay-at-home mom. She attends school part-time and is working toward her RN degree. And she loves meeting your four-legged family members!​
