Queen of the shop, she was adopted from Furry Friends Refuge in 2016 and thoroughly enjoys her lush life. She can be found basking in the window in her favorite cat bed. Her favorite food is just about any canned food that Weruva makes! If you're lucky she'll ask you to pet her and on rare occasions she's been known to play!


Adopted from Furry Friends Refuge in 2015 and currently holds the title of Chief Kitten Wrangler (he loves the foster kittens)! Walter spends a lot of time on the desk so that he can be easily accessible for pets. His favorite food is Bravo venison; he has IBS and after several different food trials this was the food that made his tummy happy and healthy!

Betsey is the owner of Smitten Kitten, opened the shop in 2008 after seeing a need for specialized cat grooming in Des Moines. Betsey has been grooming cats for over 12 years and learned from the best- her aunt who owns The Kitty Groomer in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Jennifer is our store manager and the ultimate cat influencer. She is responsible for finding the fun and unique items we sell; she leaves no stone unturned in her hunt for the purrfect product. When she’s not at the shop you can find her creating fiber art or hanging out with her feline crew, Luna and Arya, whom she adopted from Furry Friends and her newest addition Leonard. Her secret shop superpower = she soothes all the sassy cats!
