About Katherine

I know how important it is to feel like your cat is safe and well cared for while you’re away.

I use PawShake myself when my partner and I travel overseas.
You want to know your cat is in safe hands with a trusted pet sitter.

About me

Growing up, I was lucky to have many pets and cared for a wide range of animals – from cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, canaries, fish and even rabbits.

Cats hold a special place in my heart. Ever since I was a child, I have loved their crazy, independent and sweet nature.

My last cat, Oskar, was a joy for me. I was grateful to love and care for her for just over 23 years.

My partner and I are planning to adopt another cat (or two) and a dog in the next few years. But we also plan to travel a little more as well, so we’re happy to take our time for this big commitment.

Until then, I want to help others who may need help from a cat sitter like we did – and I miss having cats in my life. :)

My services:

I work from home as a freelance graphic designer, so I’m happy to either visit your cat at your home or have them stay with me.

House calls:

  • I can visit your cat once or twice a day.
  • This includes the usual tasks of feeding, cleaning the litter box, replacing water.
  • I’ll spend at least half an hour to an hour with them each home visit, having a play and generally spending quality time with them.
  • I can also help with collecting mail, taking out bins, and watering plants etc. I’m happy to help.
  • I’ll also take a few photos of your kitty and keep you updated.
  • Areas covered:

    For house calls: I currently cover South Caulfield and surrounding suburbs.
    If it looks like I'm fully booked but you live in or next to Caulfiled South please still contact me, I can often fit in an extra booking per day if you live close by.

    Boarding: All suburbs I’m happy to have cats stay with me from any suburb if you’re willing to drop them off and pick them up from my Caulfield South location. Please use the 'Dog boarding' option when booking.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions and I look forward to a meet and greet, so you can let me know how I can help.

    Katherine understood quickly what was required for our two scaredy cats, and even got to meet one after a while! The cats did not show any signs of stress, and look happy and well-tended. Trustworthy and efficient.
