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 amazing. Billie and Dudley loved her. They were so happy and content in their own home and she gave them the best of care and lots of cuddles. She kept us updated with photos. Our two little pooches will be so happy to know they will never go back to the kennels. We are treating them to another holiday with Kristen when we go away on our next break. thankyou so much Kristen.

Kristin looked after our two Maltese terriers at our house for 9 nights, whilst we were on holiday. She is a lovely person who is very reliable in terms of organising her stay, picking up keys etc. Her communication was excellent, and she sent us regular updates how our furbabies were doing. Our furbabies and our house were well loved whilst we were away. I would not hesitate to recommend Kristen for housesitting.
