About Cate

I have been on Pawshake, housesitting and providing visiting pet care and dog walking since 2018.
I usually stick to Tuggeranong so that I can visit my regulars

I was already an experienced 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, joeys and wombats.

I started pet sitting when we spent 4 years traveling around housesitting and camping, 2007-10. Notching up about 13 housesits. 2010-2017 we lived in Qld and I 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 been 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 possessions with respect.

I am 62 and

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.

Cate took great care of our groodle whilst we were away, Peppa didn't show any signs of anxiety on our return. Cate managed well to keep to Peppa's regular routine. She also took good care of our yard and garden which was a great help.

Thank you Cate.
