About Katie
My name is Katie and I'm a 32yr old professional working in the live music industry. When you work in the industry you love, you need to find another passion to invest your spare time into, and that for me is working with animals.

I have been a foster-carer for cats & kittens for 5 years through Maggie's Rescue & Sydney Cat Protection Society. I am also now in my 6th year as a volunteer carnivore keeper at Taronga Zoo, working with lions, tigers, otters, meerkats & red pandas amongst others! I also worked casually with a dog walking company for 3 years (supervising & walking/playing with dogs in an off-leash park during my lunch breaks).

I live alone in a large one bedroom apartment in Erskineville, directly next to Sydney Park - the perfect place for daily walks. It has a large balcony area for basking in the sun (although access would only be provided to dogs, not cats), and I am working from home 2-3 days a week, so can provide 24/7 care on those days, as well as plenty of playtimes as my own method of procrastination from work ;) I prefer to live without my own pets so that I can always have a revolving door of animals to meet & care for; it gives me great joy to know that friends & family can rely on me to look after their pets if they need, and that those animals feel comfortable in my home as I build my relationship with them.

I know how much pets are like members of your own family, and I am extremely organised and reliable, so will be happy to send daily updates, photos & videos!

Felt immediately comfortable leaving Billy with Katie. Perfect fit for my greyhound and I wasn’t sure if Billy would want to leave!

Katie was amazing! So easy to deal with and even when our trip was ended unexpectedly due to Melbourne lockdown she was proactive and gave us options to help us out. Honestly can't recommend her highly enough
