My name is Kate and I am a retired active lady, with extensive experience in both home & pet care. I am a non-smoking/non drinking active and well-traveled person who is independent and self-reliant. I am consequently able to cope with any problems in your absence.

Given my background as a current homeowner in Brisbane Australia, with garden/swimming pool care experience (and a Virgo!)   I have an exceptionally high standard of home care and will leave your house in a standard above your expectations.

I enjoy house sitting as it gives me the opportunity to travel and explore towns & city's at a slower pace than if on a paid holiday.  I prefer to be more of a Traveler, than a tourist. I like to get to know the locals & really see the sights at my leisure, enjoy the food, take photo's . Also I get the marvelous opportunity to spend time enjoying your pets!

 My first house & pet sitting position was in 2006 in Cairns with 3 cats.  Since then I have completed many local & o/seas sits, and have been invited back to every sit.  : )

I am able to remain in contact with the Homeowner via regular updates, or ph.  I will respect all your property, and I take security of your property very seriously.

I am an animal lover and having cared for various pets throughout my life I feel I can provide all the love, kindness and attention your pet/s need, until you return.   I have experience giving  subcutaneous fluid to support kidney failure in cats.  

I am free & happy to be able to travel overseas at short notice. I also have a clean driving license, & have driven a 24' Motorhome  solo through France & New Zealand for 2mths each time.

Thank you for taking the time to consider me in your search for a house sitter.  If you require any further information or would like to contact me please do not hesitate.  

I do have some of my impeccable References available for your perusal on this site, plus others.  Also a personal reference that is available on request.
