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 26 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've also started my own very successful pet sitting business, I'm new to this app hence not many reviews, however in other sites I have many reviews, all are 5 stars which I'm very proud of.

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.

Two 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 the most reliable and loving petsitter you will find. She looked after our two big cats for two weeks and she just went beyond all expectations. She is clearly experienced in taking care of pets, since she's very sensitive to tiny differences in their behaviours and needs. She sent us plenty of cute pics and videos at each visit and took care of them as if they were her own kids. She went the extra mile by giving me super valuable advice in various respects when I had doubts on what would be best for them. I think my cats miss her already and that is really impressive since they are not really keen on people they don't see every day. Therefore, thank you so much Katie!!
