Hi, my name is Cathy!
I’ve been working for Pet Friends since October 2021 ☺
I have had pets in my family since as far back as I can remember. We always had either a dog, cat, bird or fish. As I got older, Mum let me have ‘my own’ pets. “You better look after them” she’d say whenever I’d ask for one. I didn’t get the OK every time, but when I did, I was over the moon!!
Through out my primary and high school years I owned A LOT of animals. From mice, rats, rabbits, chooks, even a goose called Bruce! Then there was always my childhood dream of owning a horse.
My first two jobs after high school were with horses. Then I went on to working with dogs at boarding kennels. Lake Adams Pet Resort, West Coast Pet Care Centre (where I also did basic obedience training and obtained an Animal Care Certificate) and Julies Boarding Kennels & Cattery.
When I got married we moved to a remote hobby farm. Well, nothing could stop me! Apart from cattle & sheep, I ended up with 2 ex racehorses, 2 harness ponies, way too much poultry, 5 dogs, 4 cats and 2 birds!! But sadly I had to downsize when my marriage ended and I had no option but to move back to the city and could only bring 2 little fur babies with me (Mario – Chihuahua x Papillion and Winston – Chihuahua x Jack Russell).
So to keep getting my insatiable love for animals ‘fix’ my search began. The Universe heard my call and brought me to the wonderful Sharon and her Pet Friends team!!
Well – BEST JOB EVERRR!! It’s an awesome feeling to be trusted with the care and responsibility of peoples animals and meeting other people with as big a love for their fur kids as I do.
Pet friends looked after my 3 Dogs, Guinea Pigs, 2 Bird Avairys full of Budgies and Weiros in January 2022 for 21/2 weeks, Cathy did an awesome job, dogs were super happy, it looked like we never left home, communication was first class, bins put out, mail brought in, we have already booked 3 times this year, keep up the good work. Thx Gary And Belinda – Gary Cotton
We Highly Recommend!
Cathy took the time bond and understand our Dogs needs.
The service reports put our mind at ease with the updates and photos. We knew he was in good hands.
This was our first time using a pet sitting service and we will definitely be booking again!
Thanks Again to Cathy and the Pet Friends team. 🙂 – Mitch Carter
