About Kathryn

I love animals! I have grown up with cats, fish, a chicken and various birds. I have cared for dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs and a turtle.

I have a 7yo Great Dane (just like Scooby Doo), called Alpha (name chosen for a ‘new beginning’), she is my first dog and she is my everything. I also have a 6yo rescue cat, Coco, who prefers to get pats from strangers walking by the house than from me, and verbally tells me she’s getting pats to torture me. I used to have a Cockatiel named Barney, who I taught to whistle songs, head bopping dance moves and he loved to get head pats.

I have an adult daughter who cares for my animals when I am away pet sitting.

My services includes daily feeding and walks; all depending on your animal needs. In addition to walking and feeding, I will provide your pet with play time, cuddles and supervision.

I will look after your home with the upmost respect. You can expect that I will leave your home as you left it, maybe even tidier!! At a minimum, you can expect kitchen bins to be emptied, bathroom tidied, countertops to be wiped, bed re-made or stripped (as per your preference) with dirty towels and bed linen put in the washing machine and dried (if possible), before I leave. I can also put out/bring in your rubbish bins, bring in your mail and water your indoor/outdoor plants.

I work full-time hours as a senior Executive Assistant for a NFP Charity (so I am a very organised person), in the Inner West Sydney area. I have previously worked more than 15yrs for various Federal Government departments in Canberra. I am policed checked, WWCC checked, non-smoker, non-drinker, almost OCD cleaner and very respectful.

Kathryn is absolutely amazing! We left our rescue pup Chino for the first time and Kathryn took the greatest care of her and gave a great deal of love and attention. Sending us updates daily and Kathryn was super patient with Chino's constant need for cuddles. We also came home to a clean sparkling house with all the washing done and folded neatly including clean fresh bedding. Thank you so much Kathryn for putting us at ease and taking such good care of Chino! Would definitely recommend you to anyone and we will book.

Kathryn is absolutely amazing! We left our little Italian Greyhound for the first time and Kathryn took such good care of him. She was very patient and loving with him. He loves her so much that when she left he was very upset. We also came to a clean sparkling house with our washing all done and folded so neatly and clean fresh bedding. Thank you so much Kathryn for putting us at ease and taking such good care of our Lucio! Definitely going to book again when we do our big overseas trip
