About Kirsty

Currently, I work in the animal industry, & I take pride in giving the best care for your furry/feathered/finned/scaled friend and spend time giving them the individual attention they deserve!

I've grown up around several different species (dogs, cats, goats, rabbits, sheep etc.), and had many different types of birds over the years, but also trained in care for guinea pigs, rodents, reptiles and fish.

Any additional experience working with animals I highly value, and I love that each and every one has it's own personality! I certainly don't mind working with animals that have specific requirements and can administer medication/injections if needed.

I have worked with a lot of clients with elderly and unique pets during my time on pawshake, and seek to provide personalised services for each animal.

I am currently available for overnight, day visits and dog walking. If you have any other requests (such as looking after your pet during a wedding service etc.) I would love to help keep them involved (& behaved) on your special day!

I also have a Managerial/Housekeeping background in the Tourism Industry (5* rated hotels & resorts) so will maintain a very professional & clean service for you whilst house sitting, plus I'm also happy to bring in the mail/take out bins/water gardens/daily walks etc. as required.

Contact me for any further information or references, I look forward to being the purrrfect pet sitter for you!

*please note I am currently unable to assist with rabbits/guinea pigs & rodents

Kirsy was an amazing find as we have very needy dogs. Im sad to hear she is leaving Melbourne. We can only hope she will fly in to babysit. Great person great skills and around great experience x

Kirsty did an amazing job looking after our 2 cats over the Xmas period. The photos she sent showed how relaxed and happy the cats were which was a massive relief for us. Kirsty spent time playing with them and was very fast at responding to messaged. I'd thoroughly recommend Kirsty and would definitely not hesitate to use her again!
