About Kate
I'm new at Mad Paws, but I've been pet sitting for years - I love getting to know all the pets I sit. I'm an experienced, reliable and mature woman, who even the pickiest pets love. I give them extra tender love and care with one-on-one walks, swims, brushing, tummy rubs, massage, cuddles...whatever their fancy. I'm different from most pet sitters as I'm highly pet focused. I stay with their routine and needs so they remain feeling safe and secure. They love it when I speak dog and cat ;D

I have cared for many types of dogs from high energy 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 assured 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.

Pet sitting is billed by the night, covering 5pm to 9am. For the days, add the Day Care service for the days you need.

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

I like sending updates and photos when you're away a while.

Kate had Yoshi for us at the last minute for daycare. Communication was great and we very much appreciated her accomodating us. We would definitely use Kate for dog sitting again if we were in the area. Thank you!

Panther was so excited to see Kate again! She gave him all his medications & took extra special care of him while he’s had a few medical issues. Really trust and recommend Kate :)

Kate took such wonderful care of Panther for the weekend. She sent lots of gorgeous photos and updates, took him on walks, gave him cuddles, and managed to keep him calm and happy despite usually experiencing separation anxiety. Thanks Kate!
