About Katie

* I can only accept bookings for 3 days or more *

Hello my fellow animal lovers!

Firstly thank you for checking out my profile.

A little bit about myself, the crazy (cat) animal lady, I'm a mature 27 year old, who moved to Oxfordshire a few years ago from Scotland. I decided to move to Oxford to work for an animal sanctuary which I still do now and I absolutely love it. I have lots of experience with animals, especially cats however confident with most animals. At the animal charity I work for I mainly care for the cats & rabbits, dealing with general care, feeding, grooming, medication if require, (I look after a lot of older cats, so usually this is the case) dealing with strict diets, allergies and of course the rehoming giving them the second chance in life they deserve.

I also volunteered at a children's zoo for over a year caring for many animals.

A few years ago I raised just under £500 for SSPCA by bungee jumping 160ft.

Feel free to send me a message regarding the service I can offer you and your pet(s) whilst you're away. Whilst I'm caring for your pet I'll treat them like my own, with lots of love and attention they deserve!

I have two cats named Flossy and Chip!

I'm insured, police checked and have my own car so can easily travel to your destination.

Katie is a warm and friendly person who looked after our cat so well. We received daily updates with photos/videos and could see for ourselves that he was happy. Katie was also thoughtful in other ways, such as taking our bin out and putting our post in one place, which wasn’t expected but was much appreciated.

I would recommend Katie without hesitation and will definitely be in touch with her again when we go away.
