About Catriona

Hi pet lovers!

My name is Cat, and I've recently relocated to Australia. Sadly I've had to leave my furry feline friends back in New Zealand with family. I'm missing the love and cuddles, and would be so happy to take care of your pet, offer hugs and lots of care and attention.

I am missing having furry companions, I would like to continue to pet sit and dog walk now that we have our own place! So, I am doing this more for furry companionship and enjoyment than money :) I have experience with both dogs and cats - big and small, young and old!

I'm currently not working/ doing freelance work based at home, and would like to spend my spare time looking after your pets.

I've been lucky enough to look after the four-legged members of friends' families for extended periods when they've gone overseas, and it's always such a privilege to look after them. I love to walk, and am right next door to the park for extended runs.

I'm experienced in looking after anxious and rescue pooches and am confident with all types of dogs, as well as cats and smaller animals.

Your pet and home would be loved and well looked after with me! I'm always keen to let you know how your pet is getting on, so expect regular updates if you go away for any period of time. As a photographer I love to take photos of your pets to send to you! I currently work from home, so having your pet stay with me will mean lots of love and attention!

Since January 2017 I have looked after the following dogs:

(on a long term > 1 week, overnight basis)

- 1 Beagle

- 1 Cavalier King Charles

- 1 Poodle

- 2 labradors

- 1 Cocker Spaniel

- 1 Kelpie / Collie X

CATS

I grew up with cats (all rescues from kittens), so have a lot of experience looking after cats from kittens, to elderly cats and both of my current cats were rescues. I have looked after the following cats for other people:

- 2 Burmese Cats

- 2 Domestic Short Hair Cats

- 2 Domestic Long Hair Cats

If you choose services at my home, I have a large 2 level apartment, with a medium sized back garden. The garden is completely enclosed with a 6ft high fence, and has a large shaded/ covered area. So any inside/outside pets can use this supervised or unsupervised (whatever you are comfortable with) and any indoor pets can easily be kept inside. All pets will of course be kept inside at night time.

I look forward to meeting with you and your pets!

Catriona was fantastic. Our dog Fred had a great time, we got updates each day, and he was well looked over and loved during his stay. Thanks very much!
