About Stephanie

About me:I'm Stephanie, a 33 year old cat mom of 3, plus one silly little dwarf hamster. I've always loved animals, and have had many small animals when I was younger, such as hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets and chinchillas. By far my favourite has always been cats. My first cat found me when I was 16 years old, and I was lucky enough to spend the next 16 years with him. I currently have 3 cats, Andy and Peanut who travelled with me from Australia, and Jack who is from the UK. We also have a rescue hamster named Piffle who is an absolute fiend for pumpkin seeds. I am also an avid crafter who always has a million projects on the go. I love to be outdoors, going for long hikes and camping.

My experience: I've spent the past 7 years working professionally with cats, mainly split between a cat boarding facility, large animal shelter, and most recently at a rural animal rescue. I have worked with cats from all breeds, personalities, and health and beavioural issues. I have experience both professionally and personally with cats who have had diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, urinary issues, mobility issues, amongst other concerns. I can feed special diets, including supplements, and can administer various medications including insulin.

For cats and small animals, I can offer:(price includes up to 3 animals)

  • Home visits -I will spend between 30 min to an hour during my visit where I will clean their cage/litter trays, give fresh food and water, administer medications if needed, and most importantly offer plenty of attention, play time, and cuddles.
  • House sitting-I will spend my time at your residence providing fresh food and water, cleaning cages/litter trays, administering any medication, and providing lots of attention, play time, and cuddles to your beloved pets. I will also keep up with any house tidying and plant watering that’s needed.
  • I do have my own transport, so in case of an emergency at any time, I will be able to access a vet immediately. I am extremely patient, and know how difficult it can be for pets to have a change in their routine, so will keep a close eye on any changes whilst you're away. I know firsthand how stressful it is to leave your pet with a stranger, so I will keep you updated with texts and photos during my stay, but happy to have phone calls if needed! I completely understand the worry, so just know that your pet is in safe hands, and you can contact me any time. If you have any questions about me or my services, please send me a message :)

    I can't rate Stephanie highly enough, she took amazing care of my cat Brenda who needs twice daily meds and nothing was too much trouble. She also takes the most amazing pictures!
