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 :)

Thank you so much Kirsten for taking such a good care of our home and Kishmish. It was our first time to use a pet sitter and we are not disappointed. You are such a lovely person and gave us a piece of mind with your constant updates while we were away. Kishmish had a great time with you and we will definitely use you again in the future. Thanks again!

Kirsten is a fantastic dog sitter! Our puppy was a little anxious but she made sure she was well looked after and kept us informed about our how she was doing throughout the night. Definitely recommend Kirsten’s services!!
