About Katrina

I'm a 32-year-old early career academic who loves cats but isn’t quite ready to commit for life to my next floof ball. My life has been surrounded by cats, having provided geriatric care for our 19 year old family cat, and cat-sitting for friends with 2 month old kittens up to 6 year old scaredy-cats.

SERVICES

Pet sitting for local cats (St Kilda, Elwood, Balaclava). Existing clients only.

Pet boarding for all Melbourne cats, with pick up and drop off available. Minimum 1 week stay.

Your cat will become part of the family for the duration of their stay, with lots of love, cuddles and brushes. Elderly and timid cats are very welcome. I live in a 3rd-floor 2-bedroom apartment with a semi-enclosed front balcony perfect for (supervised) sunbathing, complete with cat grass and cat mint. Your cat will have the run of the house, with couches to lounge on, a gas fireplace to bask in front of, and plenty of windows to watch the word go by. For the more nervous cat, I have Feliway to calm the nerves, and can close off parts of the house to provide a greater sense of safety in the early stages of their stay. The house is fully steam-cleaned between feline guests to ensure a neutral environment for your cat. If your cat is used to the outside, I'm happy to take them on walks and give them plenty of play time on our balconies. I'm also happy to send you regular photo or email updates to make sure you don't miss your baby too much. Prices do not include food and litter, so you will need to provide all supplies. Special toys, bedding and scratching posts are all welcome to aid in your cat feeling at home.

I live with my male partner, who loves to play with the more energetic cats; and three gorgeous snakes, who I can assure you are safely locked away in their enclosures and are too small to consider cats as food!

Robyn, 2020-02-09

Katrina was a wonderful, conscientious, down to earth and respectful pet sitter for our two cats and we were so impressed. She came to meet us in person and was flexible and even dropped them home to us! She also communicated extremely well while we were away with a few reassuring photos of our puds enjoying their week away in comfort as only cats know how! Can't thank her enough and would not hesitate to recommend and have her services again. Many thanks, Robyn

Katrina has been amazing yet again with my 2 cats while I was away on a short trip. Booked her multiple times previously and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again. Highly recommended!
