Hi, my name is Kristen. I am 30 year old Australian female living in Sydney's inner west. I am a career Veterinary Nurse who has been pet sitting for clients for years. I have recently moved on from general practice nursing to expand my skills and now work at SASH, the small animal specialist hospital. I love the challenging work, but miss the connection with pet owners, so I have decided to join Pawshake :) I would love to spend some one on one time with your little pooch or kitty. I can stay at your place or just visit up to twice per day. I can also be hired to just walk and spend some time with your pets too :) As a nurse, I am the perfect sitter for elderly animals or those with chronic conditions. I am comfortable administering all medications and recognising any change in medical conditions. My interests include animal welfare and wildlife conservation. I have a Masters in Wildlife Health from Sydney Uni. I am a long-termvolunteer for Pets in the Park, a non for profit charity that provides free veterinary care for pets belonging to people in unstable housing. I also volunteer for a free wildlife only clinic once per month. My profile contains some pictures of my beloved patients :) Send me a message, we can arrange a catch up before you hire me.
Kristen was lovely. From the first moment I felt comfortable with her. Our two cats liked her instantly and soon enough were sleeping in her bed! . Her bubbly personality is a great asset when caring for animals and dealing with " anxious " owners to leave their " fur babies " for a time being .
She was great with communication and sending photos and emails regularly. Our house was also spotless when we returned.
I would ask her again to petsit when we go on holiday.
Kristen was a wonderful carer for our dog, Penny. She was helpful with the preparation arrangements, very warm and friendly and our dog took to her immediately. A wonderful dog-sitter and we will definitely use her again. Janne.
