About this sitter

Hi,
My name's Kath.
I'd probably describe myself as a recycled teenager/domestic magician!
I'm Mum to 6 grown-up children, Grandma to another eleven and now a Great Grandma.
Originally from Preston, Lancashire, I've lived in the beautiful city of Norwich for over 30 years and have just retired.

Why they want to house sit

Too late for a gap year or even a mid-life crisis,I'm looking for adventure, exploring interesting places and meeting new people.

Their experience

Although I've been registered on this site for a few years, circumstances meant I have had a few house sits.
(Please don't let that put you off .........I've got plenty of common sense!)
My first was 2 1/2 weeks cat sitting near Mijas, Spain.
Looking after a cute cat in a delightful home in a beautiful location and meeting the neighbours was a very enjoyable experience.
In the summer, I looked after 2 lovely cats in Lincolnshire. Though not too far from home, it was an opportunity to explore a beautiful area I normally drive straight through and the owners made me so welcome.
Then I was lucky to have two consecutive house sits; looking after 3 adorable dogs in Chester and then 2 more equally endearing dogs in Derby.
My last sit was in Lanzarote, minding 3 dogs and a cat for a friend.
I can't wait for the chance to try somewhere new!

What can they bring to the assignment

I'm very resourceful and extremely organised - not much fazes me.
I'm a non-smoker, can fix most things and am pretty good at gardening.

I have 3 magnets on my fridge:
'There's no such thing as normal'
'Some days are a complete waste of make-up'
'You can't scare me, I've got kids'

That just about sums me up!

Testimonials

Petite, beautiful and extremely competent.

Kath is a very calming and reassuring lady. My dogs and the house were better than I expected when I got home. I've invited Kath back to help in the future, so my trust in her is evident.

Lovely house/dog sitter

Kath was an absolute pleasure to meet. She arrived last afternoon the day before we were leaving to go on our trip for the weekend, we felt extremely comfortable and confident leaving Kath to care for our three dogs and home. When we returned the house was just as we left it and respect for our home shone through and the dogs were extremely happy and relaxed. We would not hesitate to recommend Kath and would welcome her back again in the future. Thank you very much Kath! X

Top class house/pet sitter

Kath stayed at our house for a week in July and was absolutely wonderful. She cared for our 2 cats and sent us updates of how she was getting on as our cats are very nervous of strangers. We got home to a cleaner house than when we left it and 2 very settled cats. A pleasure to have met her and we couldnt have asked for a better sitter. We would definately recommend Kath as a sitter and would jump at the chance to have her again. Thanks again Kath :)

Excellent petsitter

Kath has just finished pet sitting my 15 year old cat for 2 and a half weeks. I can certainly recommend her and would ask again if she was free. She even came to collect me from the airport in her hire car.
