About Kate

Hello! My name is Kate, I am a lover of all animals great and small and I'm looking forward to getting to know Gold Coast's pet community!

I have history as a foster carer and experience volunteering at Cat Haven where I conducted daily health checks, noting for signs of distress and illness within their boarding facilities.
I see the stress pets can feel when suddenly faced with a new environment and strangers, so I understand the worry owners feel! I am confident with easing anxious and stressed animals into feeling comfortable and happy. I grew up pet sitting for family and friends and I utilise Pawshake to care for animals in my free time. I have more experience with cats and dogs but I will happily care for any animals (I love reptiles, rodents, fish and birds as equally as furbabies!)

I provide the utmost care to the health and well-being of your loved ones. I will play with your pets, give them cuddles as they ask and keep a good eye on their health and behaviour to ensure they are happy. Since moving to Queensland I have dearly missed our family cat back in WA, so I understand how important photo updates are to pet owners!

More about me: I am trustworthy, reliable and conscientious. I'm also very tidy and a non-smoker. My love of animals developed from a young age as I always grew up with pets: a dog, 3 cats (1 adopted stray), many chickens, and the cows and sheep living on the family farm.

For house sitting, I work full-time in Broadbeach Monday to Friday so let me know if you need any walking services during the week. The travel distance will determine whether I can provide a morning and/or evening walk, otherwise I will be able to do so over weekends!

Services:

  • Free Meet and Greet: A meet and greet is a great way of ensuring you are at ease about entrusting me with your pet as well as giving your pet a comforting introduction to the new person in their life.
    I will come meet you and your pet and chat about how I can help you. I will learn about your pet's behaviour and routine. I can also join you on a trial dog walk to ensure your dog is comfortable when I take the leash.
  • House sitting: I will stay in your home and give your pets LOTS of love and attention! I will also send you daily photos and updates on your pet's well-being to keep you at ease while you are away. I am happy to do extra household tasks such as cleaning litter trays, bringing in mail, watering plants, taking out the bins, etc. I always leave the house clean and tidy so you can walk in and relax (after receiving plenty of excited cuddles from your pets of course!).
  • *Currently I am only offering house sitting services (dog walking included in this service)*

    • Dog walking: I can collect your dog from your home and take them for a walk down the street or to a nearby park. Beforehand I will discuss with you your dog's behaviour, favourite locations and any tips or concerns you may have. The fee covers around 30 minutes of walking and park visits (walking distance only sorry as I don't drive).
    • House visits: I will stop by your home during the day to feed your pet, change water bowls and give them some affection. I am happy to do extra household tasks such as cleaning litter trays, bringing in mail, watering plants, taking out the bins, etc. A house visit means I am there for around 30 minutes.

      Kate looked after our three cats while we were away for a week and sent us photos every day so we knew they were safe and well. We were grateful not to have to worry about them so we could relax and enjoy our holiday. She was very careful with the house and took great care of everything. Thanks Kate! Will definitely get in touch next time we plan a trip.

      Kate was great with our timid and shy kitty, they bonded very quickly and wouldn’t hesitate to book Kate again!
