Mature experienced carer

Moe, VIC

Our pets experience feelings and emotions just like we do and depend upon us for their love and care.
I consider it a joy and privilege to share my life with them and give them the best possible life they can have.
I grew up with birds, fish, dogs cats, goats and horses and recently have been taking care of three lizards.
I have experience with dogs with anxieties and illness.
Having recently lost my own precious dog I would like to offer
security and love to your beloved pet when they need it.


About This Listing

I have a large back yard for dogs who like to chase balls and water from the hose.
The pet will never be left alone outside as I know distressed animals can be amazing escape artists.
Pets will sleep inside and if the pet is accustomed to sleeping on the bed I am happy to accommodate them with lots of cuddles.
It will be my intention to make the pet feel secure and happy at a time which is typically challenging for them.
I live near a beautiful reserve, lake and veterinary clinic.

Other Skills
I have completed level 4 in Alpha dog training and behavioral classes at Burwood RSPCA. I have considerable experience with dogs with anxieties and illness. Having a Border Collie was a real challenge as they require a lot of mental and physical activity so I feel prepared for other animals which may have similar requirements. I am currently caring for three blue tongue lizards, one of whom was sick and required medication.

Cate was wonderful! I’ve never used a service like this before and was quite nervous. Cate came to my house everyday to check on Puss- she sent me updates and dealt with any hiccoughs that came along professionally and compassionately and made me feel that my pet was in fantastic hands. I will definitely be using Cate’s services again in the future.

Catherine was very lovely and clearly cared about the comfort and well-being of our cat. We appreciated the timely updates on how Temmie was doing, it did wonders for our peace of mind knowing Temmie was in good hands. We would definitely recommend Catherine to anyone in the area who needs a pet sitter and wouldn't hesitate to book with Catherine again the next time we need to leave our pets at home.

- Reference

Catherine has a genuine love for all animals. Over the years I have observed Catherine's nurturing care for a wide range of pets including chickens, guinea pigs, blue tongue lizards, cats and dogs. In particular, Catherine has regularly cared for my Papillion-cross dog, Sally, over the past 8 years. I have no hesitation leaving Sally in Catherine's care when I go away, even for weeks at a time. I know Catherine will care for Sally as I would care for her myself. Catherine ensures Sally engages in activities she enjoys every day, from taking a walk to sitting together having a nice pat or enjoying time together in the backyard with a cup of tea (Catherine) and a bone (Sally). In short, Catherine organises her life around the particular needs of each pet and this provides her with great meaning in life and ensures the animals enjoy their life. Catherine has also completed a dog training program and is experienced in managing dogs with special needs and challenging behaviours. I can highly recommend Catherine as a pet carer.
