About Kate
I'm new at Mad Paws, but I've been pet sitting for years - I love all the pets and I love them as my own. I'm an experienced, responsible, reliable and mature woman, who even the pickiest pets love, as I give them extra tender love and care with one-on-one walks, swims, brushing, tummy rubs, massage, cuddles...whatever is their fancy - I even speak dog and cat ;D

I have cared for many types of dogs from pups to the most delicate, elderly dogs. And I'm a natural with cats. Owners sometimes wonder how I got their cat to sit on my lap!

I have a calm and assertive nature, balancing exercise, affection and discipline. I am active and love to take the doggies for long walks and to the beach, if that's their thing.
My husband & I both work from home, so we are here for them most of the day. They are never left for long, if at all.

We are a family of 3, with one teen, animal loving son at home. Our house is suitable for small to medium dogs. We welcome them inside and they have all day access to a secure deck. My teen son loves to swim in the pool with them, if they enjoy the water. I take the pups to the beach and give them a run and play for as long as we like.

We have two very chilled Ragdoll cats who keep to themselves. They sleep the whole day away and then sleep with my son at night. Your dog can sleep inside with us, if that's what they're used to. Or, they can sleep on the deck.

Daily dog walks are INCLUDED in the pricing, weather permitting.

Your current C5 vaccination certificate must be sent (unless under 14 weeks of age) PRIOR to booking confirmation. All pets must be completely up to date with worming, flea and tick treatments. If your pet requires any special diet please let us know. I am experienced with particular diets and also with giving medication.

We are flexible with drop off and pick up times as we can work around your times. We kindly request if you give your pet a bath before drop off.

I have a national police check and many pet owners who are happy to talk with you about my services.

I'm happy to send updates with photos and video and even facetime, if you like.

I do host large dogs, but our home is comfortably for only one at a time.

NOTE: I am unable to take:
* AMERICAN STAFFYS, ENGLISH STAFFYS, BULL TERRIERS, PITBULLS or mixes.
* NON DESEXED males over 10 months
* NON DESEXED females over 12 months
* Loud or excessive barkers.

I DO home visits for cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs.

Kate and her family were great with Charlie.

Kate looked after with much love and care our two needy cats and even needier Spoodle Charlie when we were overseas for 3 weeks. We came home to a calm and happy house of pets and everything in perfect order. Charlie now has a new best friend/second mother! Kate has a magic touch with animals and most importantly always puts the animals needs first when house and pet sitting.

Kate pet sat for us for the whole month of September 2019. She looked after our 17 year old toy poodle who had got sick the week prior to Kate's arrival. To say that Kate was outstanding would truly be an understatement. She needed to give heart medication as well as antibiotics twice a day. By the to time we got home she had nursed our baby back to good health. Kate is calm, practical, loving to the pets and totally dedicated to looking after the animals. Kate would be our first choice by far if we needed a pet sitter again. If you are lucky enough to get Kate, you'll see first hand for yourself. If you need anything further, Kate has our number. Feel free to call.
