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!

We left our cats with with Kate in our home for 3nights whilst we were away down the coast, her level of care is impeccable! Highly recommend her to anyone wanting exceptional care of not only your pets but your home as well.

Home Visits

Kate was an amazing carer to my feathered and furry friends. Daily updates were provided and the level of care was excellent- I got home to find my pets were calm with plenty of food and water available to them. I would recommend Kate without hesitation and will utilise her services again in the future.
