About Cate

I am booked for housesitting from 21-29th Dec, but I am still available for visiting pet care or having small animals at my place (e.g. bunnies, birds, guinea pigs, not cats or dogs).

I am a very experienced house sitter and visiting pet carer. I love animals and have looked after all sorts - snuggly cats, aloof cats, big dogs, little dogs, chooks, ducks, peacocks, birds, cute bunnies, demon bunnies, frogs, fish, turtles and even llamas, an axolotl and wombats.

I started pet sitting when we spent 4 years travelling around housesitting and camping, 2007-10. Notching up about 13 housesits. 2010-2017 we lived in Qld and housesat a couple of times a year, (probably another 12 housesits) when we came back to Canberra to visit family, including a repeat job every Christmas with a menagerie.

I moved back to Canberra at the beginning of 2018 and housesit in between staying with family and have provided lots of visiting pet care, through PawShake and other advertising spaces. I have accumulating quite a few happy repeat clients.

I love looking after people's pets so that they can have a get away with confidence, knowing their loved ones are cared for.

I treat your house and your posessions with respect.

I am 58.

I work from home - online doing Graphic Design and Social Media, Digital campaigning so if I am housesitting I can spend plenty of time with your pet - in between visiting other pets.
