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 on their profile :)

Pet Sitting - Jan 7, 2022
Kirsten was amazing! By far the best ever. She was able to maintain the cats normal routine and even managed to introduce 2 cats from different house holds successfully over 2 weeks. She communicated so well, sending pics and updates more than once per day. Very reliable and we will definitely be using kirstens services again.

Kirsten was diligent, considerate and just absolutely lovely! My kittens adored her and she was great at sending videos / updates / communicating. Highly recommend and would love her to look after our cats again when we are away!

House Visiting - Dec 27, 2021
Kirsten was great! V respectful, staying for hours with our two fur babies to ensure they had lots of cuddles and were well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble and I’d recommend Kirsten to others. Def use again if we are wanting to keep the cats at home when we are away. Great peace of mind when we were going through a medical drama over Xmas. Thanks Kirsten 🙏 😊
