About Katie

Hello! My name is Katie, I am 28 years old and I am in my last year of the Registered Practical Nursing program at Conestoga College. I have a passion for providing care to all of Earths creatures; animals have and always will be a big part of my life. While I do have my own tiny zoo to take care of, I am really looking to add a few new faces to my daily/weekly routine! I have experience with most varities of pets. Over my life I have personally owned dogs, cats, birds, fish, lizards, snakes, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and a tarantula named Valentine! I have done plenty of cat-sitting, home-sitting and dog walking over the years for friends and friends of friends. I have experience applying topical creams and administering oral medications to dogs, cats and snakes. I have intermittently homed cats for people during family moves or home renovations. I have experience in fostering injured wildlife, including some very recent experience with a kit of raccoon babies! I thrive on developing strong relationships with animals built on trust, and I find coupled with my nursing background, I am able to assess when an animal is displaying a change in health or behaviour. I would be happy doing homevisits for any kind of "stay-at-home" creature, going for a slow jaunt with any senior dogs or would also be thrilled if I could find a dog or two that would be up for some higher intensity walks as I enjoy exploring new trails, visiting creeks, etc. My two dog babies that I have, while they are both in good shape for their age, they just don't have the endurance anymore to run longer distances so it would be fun if I could find new companion(s) for that! I also have a large reliable vehicle! If you have any other questions please feel free to ask, look forward to meeting you and your fur babies! :)

Katie went above and beyond looking after my cat. She was very attentive to him, and even added extra time to the visits. It is clear she adores animals!

Familiar with dog training techniques
Gia gave me a lot of experience with behavioral challenges. She has fairly extreme separation anxiety, she has been like this since birth. It was apparent when I went to pick her up and bring her home for the first time, as she did not get on well with her litter mates, and was very closed-off from the group and visibly nervous. I do believe at this point I have tried just about all possible techniques and therapies to relieve her behaviors. Some have worked, others not so much! I have also intermittently homed cats for people during a move or home renovations. I have experience with rescue animals, as I am someone who finds injured wildlife, cares for them overnight if necessary and then delivers them to the appropriate rescue organization. The most recent was 4 tiny one-day-old raccoon babies!!
