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 - Dec 6, 2021
Kirsten was the perfect pet sitter for our lively Border Collie. She kept us up to date on how things were going and left the place pristine, which is no small feat due to the crazy shedding of our dog. She also heroically coerced our dog (who hates stairs) down 6 flights during a fire evacuation. Thanks Kirsten you're the best !

Kirsten was amazing and i cannot recommend her enough. My cats are shy but she ended up getting belly rubs. That should tell any cat owner how good she is. Very communicative, and allowed us to really enjoy our time away.
