About Kate

Hello! My name is Kate, I am a 21 year old female living in Camden, NSW.

I am currently studying a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Sydney. I am in my fourth year at university and have been working as a veterinary nurse for three years in the local area - I may have met your pets before! I also work as a foster carer for the RSPCA so I have had plenty of fur babies in my care.

Based on my career path alone it is clear that I love animals, big and small. I have experience with MANY species, from large Great Danes to tiny Chihuahuas, to fish, birds, rabbits, even kangaroos!

I can provide extra care to pets requiring medication or treatment (including nail trims), with a surcharge. I also have an eye for photography and love taking gorgeous photos of your pets to send to you while you're away! Your pets will receive plenty of love, cuddles and exercise. During home visits I can water plants, collect the mail and do general tidying up after your pets. If you would like extra things done around the house just let me know and it can be arranged. Along with home visits, I am also available for house sitting and regular dog walking.

You can rest assured that your pets are in safe hands with me.

I look forward to hearing from you!

House Sitting
Joana, 2019-06-13

Kate was a great sitter, she is a very trusting sitter who stayed in our home and looked after our buddy. We were very happy with how she looked after our dog and also the home. Will recommend Kate to anyone who is after any of the services she provides with Pawshake very happy.

I definitely highly recommend Kate. She looked after our cat Lucy for 10 days whilst we were overseas - visiting twice per day. She sent texts and photos after each visit and even got a beautiful picture she took framed and left it for us as a gift on our return - which we thought was a lovely gesture. Lucy has had some health problems recently and we were worried about going away and leaving her, but she was definitely in safe hands with Kate. We will definitely book Kate again!! Thank you so much Kate!
