About Katrina

Hi there! My family love being around animals of all kinds. Im proud to join this community in offering peace of mind to pet owners who, like me in the past, struggled to find sitters who can give the attention your little pet truly deserves, so their time away from you is an overall happy experience. Actually, I needed a sitter for my pup when I was recommended this site, now having used the service and being really pleased, decided I’d love to be able to help others in the same way sitters helped me.

A bit about me- I love animals, especially puppies! I work from home, only part time, so I'm there to give your pet lots of love and attention round the clock. My two kids 13 & 11 are very responsible and playful with animals too, having helped me foster with the RSPCA for over 5 years. We’ve cared for neo-natal kittens, puppies, mice, abused dogs and also one day old lambs who needed round the clock care. My husband, thinks Im mad loving animals that are not our own, but I often find him cuddling them and sneaking them treats when he thinks no one is looking. Our family includes a shy Norwegian forest cat and more recently a gorgeous toy poodle who wants to share our bed. She is six months old and such a delight to have around, I end up getting distracted from my chores to play with her. I call her my little shadow. She likes to get walked daily, sometimes twice if the kids want to take her after school and gets along with all dogs at our local park, even when they bark at her. Any animals that stay with us are included in the same routine and care we give to our own pets. I love seeing my pup run around the yard, which they have access to all day. It’s fully fenced and has shade and trees to sniff and explore, which our animals love, especially when they have other playmates to chase around. Short term and last minute stays are great for us and we prefer dogs that are similar in size to our own. If you choose to leave your pet with us, they must have all their immunisations/worming treatments up to date and be registered. I will send regular photo updates and meet all your pets requirements.

Hank had the best time with Katrina and her family, and I enjoyed my holiday knowing he was being well looked after in a fun home. Lots of photos were sent to me showing what he was getting up to. Would def love to book in again with Katrina when needed in the future.
