Cat Sitter Richard Barber's wife Diane Kadomoto with kitten Squiry

Diane Kadomoto...

...used to be allergic to cats. Seriously. But after Magic (RIP), Mugsy, Bear (RIP), Squirrel and Luna joined our family, she discovered that her allergies had disappeared.

Born and raised in Kaneohe, Diane has worked extensively within the hospitality sector. With a Bachelor's degree in Business and another degree in Communication Disorders, Diane worked across Hawaii, Jamaica, Bermuda, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan and The United Arab Emirates. 

When she's not tending to her loved ones, she works full time at Turtle Bay Resort.

Bits of trivia: Diane sings very well, can only cook one dish (curry & rice) and at one time studied tap-dancing in the Japanese Alps (Nagano). Strange, but true.
