Service Description
I live in Arcadia and am currently working part time in a Cattery. I have owned many pets throughout my life including Cats, pugs, a Chihuahua, bunnies and chooks. I have been a foster carer to many rescue cats and kittens and was the official 'carer' of the famous Ferry Cats - Reg & Rita for over five years before they went to their new 'furrever' home. (see Facebook : Ferry Cats) and i have trapped, desexed, rehabilitated and rehomed over 15 feral cats and kittens from the local area. Whilst my passion is for cats, kittens and PUGS i love all animals and am very passionate about Animal Welfare. I am in my final semester of Animal Care certificate !! at Richmond Tafe to hone my skills and learn as much as i can about caring for animals and especially those with special medical needs. Whilst i believe that catteries and kennels are an excellent option for many cats and dogs i realise through my own past experience that just as many animals tend to fret when taken out of their home environment (had a cat that ignored me for a month after coming back from a European holiday once!) and it is especially expensive and logistically problematic when a household has multiple pets such as cats, dogs, birds and horses etc. Thus the best option is to have some one come and feed them. I am looking to help people in my local area which would extend to Glenorie, Arcadia, Middle Dural, and Dural. At this stage, because i have my own pet to care for at home i am unable to do stayover pet sitting. This is a photo of me and a couple of my foster kitties (who were feral and pretty wild when i trapped them) you would never know that one of them bit my finger to the bone! Little cherubs.... lol ;)

Basically a Krazy Kat Lady, Pug and Possum obsessed, Love bunnies, chooks, birds, dogs, sheep, horses and pretty much all animals. In my final semester of Cert II in Animal Studies at Richmond Tafe and work in a fabulous Cattery part time. Looking to work in my local area for people who have a lot of animals (or just a few) who feel that it is better to have their pets stay at home while they are away.
