About Katie

Ever since I was young I have adored animals, especially cats as my they have been a part of my family all my life. I also own numerous small animals such as hamsters and fish, and have done for the last 6 years. I'm a university student, currently studying biochemistry in the hopes to lead myself towards medicine or veterinary in the future, so I can do even more to help animals in need. I understand many animals are house pets, which is why it is so important to seek proper care to ensure they are as happy as can be.

I am currently undertaking a year in institute at the Institute of Cancer Research, with free time in the evening and weekends which I choose to spend pet siting. During the holidays, I am a part of ForPaws which is an animal care company in Surrey. ForPaws works as a freelance company, with you looking after your own bookings and clients within your catchment area. I particularly enjoy the style of work as I am capable of creating my own schedule around other commitments, and really building a close bond with my repeating clients.


I am happy to care for all animals, providing they have been trained properly. I will not be offering any pets
into my accommodation as I am currently living with family until September, caring for 3 cats of our own. I am more than happy to travel to you however, and look after your beloved animal in the comfort of their own home. I am also happy to administer any oral medication, but no injections (diabetes etc).
