About Cathy
Hi, my name is Cathy and I’m a fully qualified veterinary nurse with over 10 years of experience caring for animals. My pets include dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, fish and guinea pigs. I specialise in caring for pets with special needs and can medicate pets if required. I live in Northmead and have a car so can visit areas in the Hills and surrounds.

I love animals and am honest, reliable and professional. I'm happy to meet you and your pets first to introduce myself and learn all about them and your needs. If you have any questions please get in touch, I’ll be happy to answer them.

I love dogs of all sizes and am also confident with big dogs. We have two beautiful cats at home and have cared for many client's cats including older kitties with special needs.

Our home is perfectly set up to care for smaller pets like bunnies, guinea-pigs, pocket-pets, fish or reptiles. I have two large outdoor aviaries, including a walk-in 13 meter long flight aviary so your birds can enjoy staying in their usual cage but this can be placed safely outdoors in my aviary during the day to enjoy fresh air and sunshine. Our home has a huge fenced garden with plenty of shade, veggie gardens and fruit trees. Inside our home I have a separate lounge room area (this cannot be accessed by our own pets) so it's very quiet and secure. It's a perfect space for bunnies or birds who prefer a safe, warm spot indoors so they are still part of the family and safe but they can relax in a quiet area with plenty of natural light and sunshine (and lots of cuddles!).
I have hand reared bunnies and birds and know how important it is to have a stress-free environment so that your pets feel relaxed and happy, with lots of love and attention.

At this stage I can care for bunnies, guinea pigs, pocket-pets and birds at our home but unfortunately I'm unable to accommodate dogs or cats in our home at the moment. I can definitely do walks, home visits or stay with your dogs or cats in your home. If you have a special request please ask as I may be able to help!

I know how daunting it can be when you need to go away and are worried about your pets, they are part of the family! You can relax and have peace of mind knowing that they are in safe hands and I’ll care for them as though they were my own. The photo gallery has some photos of our pets, our home and also pets I have cared for. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

Cathy absolutely loves animals and would do the best by your pet if she was looking after them for you. Cathy is caring, considerate and dependable. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Cathy is bright, enthusiastic and most importantly reliable! She’s helped take care of my chickens and dog. Cathy’s service was invaluable with her vet nursing background in being able to identify and manage an illness in one of my flock! Couldn’t recommend more highly!

Cathy is a wonderful pet sitter. Cathy has looked after my 4 dogs and 2 cats and loves animals and is so caring and compassionate. Cathy has lots of experience working in marketing for Vetinary companies and also as a vet nurse and has helped me out with behavioural questions on many occassions. She is trustworthy, honest and reliable. I can't reommend her highly enough.
