About Africa

My name is Africa and I describe myself as a crazy cat lady. 

I work as a consult nurse and receptionist at Canberra Cat Vet.

I am confident in cat handling, medicating, picking up on behaviour, signs of distress or possible illness.

Most of my bookings are made directly through me or work hence my lack of bookings here.

I love all things cats and have two, Oliver & Spaghetti. I have had lots of cats throughout my 26 years and have always felt an affinity toward them. 

I have a Cert III in Companion Animal studies and have worked at a cat only vet for 2 years which has been amazing. I have gained valuable experience on how to handle and interact with cats which has only made my bond better.

I have experience fostering kittens and have cat sat for many friends/families over the years and started doing it for clients and now cat sit regularly.

I am available to do home visits only and feel this is the best option for cats to keep stress levels low. I generally will only do North Canberra (belconnen,gunghalin,inner north areas) but am willing to accomodate. I am confident in pilling/medicating cats for most things except insulin. I do not mind cleaning up accidents or special needs requests either. I can also water plants and grab mail and put bins out.

Send me a message to organise a meet and greet.
