Kathy & Kevin

60, Semi Retired Functions/Wedding Coordinator

Retired State Manager

Hi, my husband and I are active, non smoking, honest and reliable retirees who love travelling and visiting new places. We have extensive experience with many animals and have owned and cared for; dogs (big and small) cats, horses, sheep, goats, cows, donkeys, ducks, geese, birds, snakes, fish, guinea pigs and rabbits (when living in NSW). We are able to house sit either as a couple or independently. We have a love of both the coastal lifestyle and country living, having lived on a small acreage in the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland for 20 years. We are caring and trustworthy and would treat both your animals and home as if they were our own. Please don't hesitate to contact us if we sound like the sitters for you. Cheers Kathy & Kevin


Kathy was a cheerful applicant who graciously accepted the assignment with incomplete decor refurbishment, as tradies had not delivered all items as promised before the Easter 2018 date of the pet sit. The unit was left clean and tidy on her departure and she kept me very informed of arising situations by text and telephone calls. Kathy problem solved a ceiling leak onto our newly laid flooring from the unit above us in conjunction with body corporate representatives living on site and her quick attention to the issue over the Easter public holiday weekend was very much appreciated both by us and the absentee owner of the upper unit. My 13 year old cat alas ran amuck in my absence and disappeared for much of the day end evening giving Kathy much cause for concern. To her credit she revealed the situation to me with daily updates of the cat's overnight escapades, which many pet sitters wouldn't do. My cat is my shadow normally never more than a metre from my side and disappearance overnight is very atypical behavior. On my return there were healing scabs around her neck/head suggesting that the cat had had a scrap or two with the neighborhood Tomcats during her unauthorized nighttime adventures. Kathy seemed genuinely distraught when advising me of the cat's wayward behavior and stated that she had diligently walked the local streets calling for the cat. After a few nights of worry for all of us, Kathy confined the cat - who protested loud and long. Kathy certainly had her work cut out for her with my Pet sit assignment and my sassy mouthed 13 year old cat. Kathy's willingness to inform good and bad news was most appreciated and on this basis I recommend her pet and house sitting services to other fanatic pet owners, where the pet is the MAIN focus for putting strangers into your private home.

Hi, I can highly recommend Kathy to housesit (we will definitely use her again in the future). She treated our home with care and respect. All our animals on our return were very content, so clearly they had been loved and look after exceptionally well. We returned home, with everything in order, horses, dogs, cats and chooks were all happy. it was so nice to be able to go away and not worry about anything. This was our first time having a complete stranger in our home and I could not fault Kathy in anyway. Highly recommend her. Thanks

Kathy did a great job of keeping our old pussy company. Thanks Kathy

Kathy house/cat sat for us for 4 days I felt comfortable with her both on the phone and in person. She took excellent care of our two indoor Ragdolls and our house. The cats required extra attention which Kathy took on well. Our timid cat warmed to Kathy quickly and was very content with a stranger in the house. Kathy communicated well with us before, during and after the housesit. I'd highly recommend Kathy as a house/pet sitter.
