About Cathie
My husband and I recently lost our three beloved pets and we are desperate for dog company! We are not quite ready for a new one but would love to look after yours while you have a break, whether it's just a night, a weekend or a week or more. Or maybe your pooch just needs some respite?

We have a secure, paved yard with a dog-flap, but pets always sleep inside the house and spend most of their time with us. We also have two covered entertaining areas. We live in a peaceful, sunny home in Bilgola on Sydney's Northern Beaches. Our house has two flights of stairs.

At this stage we are hosting one small dog at a time. Overnight hosting includes lots of walks and TLC and is for a 24 hour period.

I am in my 50s and semi-retired, so I have lots of time at home to give to your doggie. Our last three pets made it to very old bones, probably due to the endless love and affection they received and I gained lots of experience administering medication, catering for special diets and other needs.

I have no children of my own, just a husband, and he is just as much an animal lover as I am and you'll see his tail wagging he's in the company of another dog. For some reason dogs are always finding their way to us on the Plateau so we can reunite them with their owners.

If you would like to arrange a booking, please contact me so we can arrange a meet and greet. The first half of 2020 is very busy but we have lots of availability later in the year. I look forward to meeting you and your fur baby!

Cathie went far and beyond of my expectations, Eadie stayed for 8 nights and had a wonderful, happy, and loving stay, she was loved the same way that we love her. The communication was amazing. I am forever grateful. 10/10

Cathie has looked after my cat several times and I would not hesitate to highly recommend her.She has a knack of becoming every cat or dogs best friend in no time at all .She has a real love of animals and they would be well cared for.

I have known Cathie for many years and can’t think of anyone who would be a better pet sitter. I have watched Cathie care for her own cats and dogs with amazing dedication and love. Cathie is responsible, reliable, highly trustworthy, thoughtful and great at communicating. Cathie will want to ensure you feel as well looked after as your dog so let her what you want in terms of communication and updates and she will deliver. This will leave you feeling confident and relaxed your dog is truely in the best care.

Our pussycat Saffron has had the pleasure of Cathie coming to our home to feed and care for her while we have been away. As a sympathetic animal lover and caring soul Cathie would give each pet alot of love and attention.
