About Catherine

I have been an experienced pet minder and house sitter for the last 5 years. My housemate, Tasha and I just love animals together. We give a home away from home service.

We are both able to provide you with excellent references and police checks. We both have had the joy of looking after many different fur babies.

We are both retired, love reading and crafts. We treat all animals as each individual owner requires. We have cared for animals after operations, giving the owners peace of mind knowing that they are in good hands.

This a vocation which we both totally love.

We both love walking. So the animals will have different smells and environments to experence.

Any questions you have, hopefully we can answer. We are only ten minutes away from the Hobart Airport, so easy drop off and pickup.

We are insured by pawshake, so piece of mind, is another bonus.

I have a large, level backyard that the furry member's can run around. All the dogs sleep on couches and the doggie door is open twenty four seven.

Feeding your furry members with your dog food will be followed as the transition will not be detrimental to their health and wellbeing.

We always recommend a meet and greet is done. This way you can see the environment and meet us.

Our little dog loved staying with Katherine and came home bright eyed, content and exhausted....so much play and love. Thank you so much from us both.

Catherine looked after our menagerie (3 dogs, 30 chooks, 3 guinea pigs and lots of birds) for a long weekend. She is a lovely friendly lady and our pets were very happy when we got back. Our house was left clean and tidy. I would use Catherine again and am happy to recommend her services.
