About Kirsten
I have always loved animals and I am passionate about their welfare. Your animal's happiness and well being is my first priority, and I will do all in my capacity to ensure they can feel comfortable and at ease around me.

My own family of pets has recently expanded to 5 cats (2 have been rescued from the shelter), all are Siamese ranging in age from 1 years old>12 years old, and they bring me joy everyday.

I've looked after different breeds of cats, dogs, birds, fish, guinea pigs and rabbits for family, friends, and patrons of the Mad Paws service, I'm always willing to be flexible to suit you and your pet's needs and go "all in" to deliver the best care for them, (whether that's walking, grooming, playing, ensuring they maintain a special diet/feeding schedule, take medications - just advise!).

Due to limited space available, I am not currently able to offer pet hosting services (looking after your pets within my own home). I am also not qualified to administer intravenous medications (should you require this, please look out for a pet sitter with the veterinary training badge! :)

Didnt go through with the petsiting due to covid lock down. But look forward to having Kirsten look after Elle in the future. Don't worry about this payment Kirsten, I didn't cancel before the date off booking 🙂

Kirsten was great with little Nala, a 9 month old Birman. Nala would come running everytime Kirsten arrived. :)
