About Katy

Welcome to my page! My name is Katy and I'm widely recognized as the "cat person" among my friends and community, a title I wear with pride. Having shared my life with these wonderful creatures since I was born, my love for cats runs deep. My extensive experience includes years of personal care for various cats. I also attended professional work experience in a cattery, to learn about cat health & safety, and administering oral medication and eye drops. This has equipped me with the skills to ensure that your cat's health needs are met with precision and care. I am particularly adept at soothing nervous or timid cats, thanks to my calm and patient demeanour. My approach is always gentle and respectful, acknowledging the trust it takes for a cat to feel comfortable in new hands. I am well-versed in the correct methods of holding and handling cats, ensuring their safety and comfort at all times.

I look forward to meeting your furry family members and providing them with the best care while you're away!

The important stuff:

I am available for home visits between 30 minutes and 1 hour, up to twice a day.

Katy was the best pet sitter we’ve had in years of using Pawshake and other similar apps! Our cat is really nervous and Katy was understanding and kind. I would 100% recommend and wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Thank you, Katy.

Katy was an amazing cat sitter! She sent pictures everyday, went the extra mile when one of my cats became sick. She always communicated and asked questions to make sure I was happy with everything. Very rare to find such a wonderful sitter!
