About Cathy

Have had a range of pets all my life including cats, dogs, Guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, fish, hermit crabs, and birds such as budgies, canaries, finches and a pair of red rump parrots. I currently have a tortoiseshell cat called Bonnie and a nine year old part Jack Russell called Lily. I also have a Rex rabbit called Ebony, a yellow budgie called Penny, some young chickens and a pet rat called Ratty. I have volunteered at RSPCA and also have done wildlife rescue, rescuing and transporting wild animals to the vet or a carer. I also have experience with chickens and horses and volunteered to help with Riding for the disabled using carriages. I am currently studying at TAFE doing Certificate III in Animal Studies and work around this.

I recently started overnight stays at pets’ homes. This seems to be going well but need to take my teenage daughter with me as she is not independent enough to be alone. I will also take a limited number of boarders which includes rabbits, guinea pigs and caged birds, but no dogs or cats.

All pets looked after get plenty of attention and cuddles or back scratches if this applies and I can brush them and give medication if this applies also.

I have been with Pawshake for over 3 years now so have plenty of experience.

The 2nd time Cathy has looked after our 2 dogs. They seemed very happy to see her and well looked after. We will definitely book Cathy again.

All care was taken as per instructions, as I was called away abruptly for an emergency and my beautiful German Shepard is wary of strangers - Cathy did a great job under the circumstances. Cathy me informed as to how Meeka(13yr) cat was doing after injuring his shoulder & Mira(dog) adjusting to her new surroundings, I had just moved to TAS. Very please with the care given
