About Katherine
Hi there!

My name is Kat, and I've had animals all of my life. I am from America, and I attended the Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology; I graduated with an Associate's Degree of Applied Animal Sciences (AAS), as well as a Veterinary Technician Certification (though, it has been about 15 years since then!). I no longer practice medicine, but I still have a deep love for animals of all kinds <3

I am willing to host certain pets at my home (puppies, small dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, or G. pigs), but they absolutely must be okay with my two kitties, Tonks and Julian. Feathered friends, hoppers, and little wheekers will be kept in my bird-room, which is off-limit to our cats (or other visiting creatures). We do also have a fenced-in and secure backyard, but no pet will ever be allowed out unsupervised.

Katherine was fantastic with Scooby, we received regular updates which definitely helped out anxiety. Scooby was well cared for and happy on pick up.

My fur babies mean to world to me and Katherine looks after them like me. They are so chilled when they come home and she even introduced them to her kitties amazing. Would highly recommend her

Katherine was so kind to accommodate my Cavoodle last minute. She was very caring and very accommodating as Remi can be anxious in new places. Highly recommend her and will definitely use her again to card for Remi. Thank you so much Katherine.
