About Katie

Cat lover in Darlinghurst. I moved to Sydney from the states 3 years ago and had to leave my cat Hank behind. Wouldn’t have been fair to him for the long flight :( Since then I love finding the opportunity to be around cats and care for them.

I have been a cat sitter for several friends in the past both visiting and overnights. I’ve taken care of cats who have special medical needs and need medication As well as low maintenance cats who just need some good old-fashioned cuddles and play time. I will scoop litter, change water, feed as often as required. I can come to you or your cat come come to me. I also don’t mind staying at yours if you'd like heaps of socialising for your cat while you’re away.

I am a social worker in aged care. I really have a passion in caring both for our aging population and animals. In my free time I enjoy to knit, go for coastal walks and hikes, cooking new recipes, and DIY home art projects.

Any other questions please ask :)

Katie is AMAZING! As an anxious cat mum, whose never used a pet sitter before, I cannot recommend Katie enough.

My cat had previously become very ill when I’ve gone away so I was super anxious, and Katie sent detailed daily updates on everything I wanted to know - appetite, toileting, stress behaviours...she reassured me I had nothing to worry about. Katie even sent ‘glamour shots’ of her and my cat having a great time together.

Katie will definitely be who I choose next time. I would recommend her to any anxious cat mum-she’s worth her weight in gold!

This was the first time we had used Pawshake and initially quite nervous to entrust our two babies (cats) with someone other than a personal recommendation or contact.

We couldn’t have been happier with Katie, from our meet and greet throughout the entire time we were away, she was an excellent communicator and shared how the girls were doing and depicted their personalities perfectly! It was clear that our cats were being very well looked after and had taken to Katie very quickly.

We would not hesitate recommending Katie and will he surely using her again in the next few months for our next trip :) thanks again Katie!!
