*** April 2022: I am currently undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer so am unavailable for the next few months. Looking forward to caring for many pets again once I'm fully recovered. Many thanks. ***
Hello, my name is Kate. I'm 34 years old and work as an editor for a digital publishing company. I'm currently based in Brighton but grew up in the Irish countryside, wihere my family had many cats and dogs. My Dad is a vet and my Mum used to be a veterinary nurse, so a love of animals is in my genes. I have two cats who run my household; a clever female tabby called Burt (due to some gender confusion at the time of naming) and a boisterous black tomcat called Malcolm. I would love to add a dog to the family, but due to my current living situation it's not a possibility just now, sadly.
I'm drawn to petsitting as it gives me an opportunity to spend time with and care for even more animals while their beloved owners are busy or away. Having had to leave my own pets home alone during the day in the past, I know how difficult it can be, and how much they appreciate a social visit or two. I also know how much easier it is to relax on a holiday when you know your pets are being well looked after at home.
A responsible, reliable and trustworthy petsitter, I have looked after many dogs, cats, and even a few birds in the past.
I also have lots of experience looking after rescue pets, both my own and other people's. I offer walking, home visits and overnight sitting, during which I always send lots of pictures so that owners can see how their pets are doing, to keep their minds at ease while they are away. As I work for myself, my time is very flexible, so I am lucky enough to be able to participate in Pawshake to both supplement my income and to get the chance to meet some lovely pets in my vicinity.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
I cannot say enough good things about Kate. She is amazing with our dog Blue, we were away for nearly 2 weeks and she took such amazing care of her and our house. Photo and text updates really put our mind at ease and Blue was so happy and content it meant we could really enjoy our holiday. I would recommend Kate to anyone!
Kate was brilliant. A super nice person and also took amazing care of Albie. Upon our return from holiday he was really happy and Kate had advanced his potty training. I've already asked Kate to cover our next holiday so would highly recommend :)
