About Katie

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.

I have never had a catsitter before and never took Barney to a pet hotel so I was quite nervous and anxious until I met Katie. I found her online profile on pawshake and once we met I knew she will be wonderful with Barney. She kept me updated constantly with photos and videos and she did so much more for him than i was expecting. I came back from my holiday to a happy kitty so I warmly recommend her to anybody who is in the same position I was, confused &!scared and doesn't know anyone who can take take care of their cat while on holiday. Thanks to Katie i was able to enjoy my time off. She is an amazing human being and she is just so wonderful with the cats, you can tell she has lots of experience, Barney loved her straight away. Thanks once more Katie for your services!

Katie did a fab job of looking after our Chuffy. She kept us up to date with photos and videos on WhatsApp and it was very clear that Chuffy had a lovely time and was very fond of Katie.

Would highly recommend!
