About Caitlin
I love animals and being able to provide their human family peace of mind when they have to be apart from their fur babies. I have been doing some form of care giving since I was a child. I started off babysitting for family members, then got into house and pet sitting once I was a bit older and did live in au pair work while traveling for several years.

In addition to always having a hand in some form of care giving, I was one of those lucky kids whose parents often caved in to various pet requests. At one point or another in my life I've had cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, rats, turtles and even a pig once. Some of this was all at once, bless my parents!

When I was 14 we rescued a puppy from the pound, a Catahoula/Australian Shepherd mix, who turned out to be the pet love of my life. Growing up I always considered myself more of a cat person, but my sweet Dutchess showed me how wonderful it is to have a dog's love. She lived to the ripe old age of 17 and I miss her dearly.

I have recently returned to pet setting as a way to afford studying in Australia but am really loving the side effects of connecting with strangers, exploring different neighborhoods and being around the healing energy of animals... I am definitely one of those people that will have conversations with your pets.

Communication and respect are two core values in my life so you can rest assured that your pets and belongings will be treated with both.

I do have one long work day where I am gone for about 12 hours but all other work and school days are for seven hours or less. Also, as I am without a vehicle, nearby public transport will be highly valued. I'm happy to cover East Perth down to Freo!

I look forward to chatting with you!

We highly recommend Cat!! She took such great care of our home and two dogs, Zoey and Koda, when we took a month-long trip. She sent us periodic updates letting us know how the girls were doing and our home looked just as we left it when we returned. The girls adored her and were sad to see her leave. Would definitely request her the next time we take a trip!

Caitlin is a WONDERFUL pet sitter! She has watched my pets several times and we have been very happy with her. She doesn't just feed and let the animals out, she plays with them and gives them all her attention. If you hire Caitlin to pet sit for you, you can rest assured knowing they will be taken care of and loved exactly like you would do. I've known Caitlin for a long time and she has ALWAYS been an animal lover. If you want someone you can trust to treat your pets wonderful while you are away, Caitlin is your girl.

Hansen Cat is the best dog/house sitter in the world! Whether I’m going for a long weekend or a 4 week holiday, I know the my pups are being treated the be best of care. She also does a great job looking after the house watering the plants and collecting the mail etc. Hiring Cat allows me to enjoy my vacations that much more knowing my precious pups and house are in her capable hands. Actually, don’t hire her, I want her all to myself! ;)

Caitlin is the most caring, reliable, and trustworthy pet sitter that my husband and I have ever had! We have a huge GS dog, a very demanding cat, and multiple fish that she has taken care of for us multiple times over the past few years and has never failed to be respectful, professional, and loving to each member of our family. We never had to worry if they were doing okay because she would always send us pictures and updates throughout the time we were gone and you could just tell that they were comfortable and happy being with her. (Our dog still gets excited when he hears her voice on the phone and starts looking for her!) I recommend Caitlin 100%!
