About Kat
I love all pets and animals with my whole heart and I will definitely treat your beloved companion like family. I've been working as a petsitter for the past six years (for a while, even, as a dog au pair!!). Before that, I was a deeply devoted dog- and cat-owner myself. I started pet-sitting and dog walking after my best (fluffy) friend, Alice, passed away. Now it's how I get my pet fix! I love my job and I love that it gives me the opportunity to care for dogs, cats and vertebrates of all kinds.

I have a love of hiking, so wherever possible, I like to take dogs out into any natural area - like the beach, large parks, lakes, rivers and creeks - for long walks. I will gladly accept the challenge of a high-energy pup! (Really! Dogs make me so happy.) And if your dog likes to snuggle instead, bring on the fur!! :)

I've had cats all my life and frequently care for them as a pet-sitter. I have a great deal of appreciation for the level of care that goes in to caring for a cat and making sure they are happy while their parents are away; I will gladly play and cuddle all day with your furry feline friends!

Over the past few years, I've gained a significant amount of experience caring for my clients' more exotic animal companions, including birds (chickens and parrots), fish and reptiles (iguanas, geckos and chameleons).

I'm fully vaccinated against COVID-19, have a registered COVID-safe business plan in place, and have completed the official Australian Government COVID-19 Infection Control Training course. I've also worked in laboratory settings throughout my career as an ecologist and have a good understanding of infection control measures.
