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 took care of our cat, Maui, for 2 nights. She was super friendly and went above and beyond, leaving our apartment super tidy and even did the washing, which was a lovely surprise to return home to. Thanks Kathryn for a great experience!
