About Kathryn

I love animals!

I have grown up with cats, fish, a chicken and various birds. I have cared for dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs over the years.

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 made or stripped (as per your preference) and dirty towels and bed linen put in the washing machine and dried. I can also put out/bring in your rubbish bins, bring in your mail and water your indoor/outdoor plants.

I work full-time as a senior Executive Assistant for a NFP Charity (so I am a very organised person), and 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.

I have a 6yo Great Dane - just like Scooby Doo. She is my first dog and she is my everything. I also have a 5yo rescue cat, Coco. I have an adult daughter who cares for my animals when I am away pet sitting.

Please note, I will block out dates on my calendar when I have an overnight stay confirmed. If you would like dog walking and/or drop-in visits, please contact me to discuss further.

Kathryn was amazing. She took such amazing care of our puppy and our house. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a pet sitter.

House Sitting
Ashleigh, 2019-11-21

Kathryn is the best sitter in Sydney and maybe even the world. I was so nervous about leaving my little one and I can’t say how relieved I am to have found a dog sitter who is so caring and so respectful of animals. My dog is a bit nervous and Kathryn was so patient with her, taking the necessary time to allow my dog to become more comfortable. I would recommend Kathryn to anybody, and am beyond grateful to have found her. I really admire her way with animals and I even learned some little things from her. Thank you so much.
