About Kate

Hello, my name is Kate. I'm 33 years old and work as a freelance witer. 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!

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 :)

Kate was amazing. We felt so comfortable leaving Blu with her. She sent us updates throughout the day of how they were getting along as well as photos and which clearly showed just how comfortable and happy Blu was in her company which meant we were able to fully enjoy our day out without worrying. Would highly recommend to anyone.
